Third place was the safe place to be for the three eventual championship race winners at South Buxton Raceway.
It took different circumstances but Grande Pointe’s Tyler Lozon, Merlin’s Steve Shaw Jr. and Blenheim’s Jeff Schives all rallied to win their division’s season championship races on Saturday night.
Lozon won his second straight Windride Transportation Sport Stocks championship race, going from third to the lead on lap 17 when the leader Eren Vanderiviere and second-place Steve Shaw tangled.
Shaw Jr. finished third on the track but wound up with the championship trophy in a wild Tirecraft Mini-Mod championship race. The winner Elliot Wilton of Blenheim was disqualified for an illegal manifold intake in post-race tech inspection while Denis DeSerrano was docked one position for a late race incident with Shaw Jr., who was declared the winner.
Schives was also running third midway through the Bomber championship when the Bonner brothers - Dylan and Evan - both were forced to the pits allowing Schives to take the lead and the first official Bomber championship.
Leamington’s Justin Coulter won his second Schinkels Gourmet Meats UMP Modified feature in just his third night at the track while Chatham’s Kirk Hooker won a feature in his first time behind the wheel in the Lube Tech/Great Canadian Oil Change UMP Late Models.
Meanwhile, Chatham’s Gregg Haskell clinched his second straight UMP Late Model points championship while DeSerrano locked up his third career Mini-Mod crown.
The Modifieds and Late Models will hold their championship night on Sept. 21, after a weekend off this coming Saturday at South Buxton.

The Shaws will looking to make history at South Buxton Raceway on Saturday in the first of two season championship nights.
There have been several father-son combinations over the 42 years at South Buxton Raceway, but none have ever won season championship races in the same year.
John Pinsonneault and John Pinsonneault Jr. are the only father-son duo to win championship races - Senior in the 1991 Stingers and Junior in the 1999 and 2002 Comp 4s.
“That would be cool,” said Steve Shaw, as he and son Steve Jr. will be taking aim at history.
