June Observations: Flamboro Speedway

With the month of June in the books for racing, it seems the perfect time to check in on who’s hot so far this year based on statistics alone.

While known as the By the Numbers piece in the past, this season will see a bit of a change in how it’s conducted.

 

1.5 is the best average finish of all drivers in the Mini Stock division this season, set by Billy Schwartzenburg. Oh, but he did that in on opening night simply with a runner-up and a win.

1.5 is the best average finish of all drivers in the Super Stock division for the month of June, set by Brandon McFerran, with a victory and runner-up on June 3.

1.75 is the best average finish of all drivers in the Late Model division this season, set by Shawn Chenoweth, in four features as he missed June 17.

is the best average finish of all drivers in the Super Stock division this season, set by McFerran, in the six races that he ran to date while splitting the schedule with Kevin Gallant. Notably, he has yet to finish outside of the top-three this season.

feature wins for Billy Schwartzenburg make him the only driver to have won more than one Late Model feature in 2017.

2.25 is the best average finish of all drivers in the Mini Stock division for the month of June, set by Jake Watson, in the four features that he raced, including a feature victory on June 3. The only problem is his results are not reflective in the points standings, as a result of a pair of DQs on June 10.

2.25 is the second best average finish of all drivers in the Super Stock division for the month of June, set by Shawn Arnott, with a win and three podium finishes.

2.29 is the second best average finish of all drivers in the Mini Stock division this season, set by Russ Aicken, but notably done by running all 14 races so far this year. Aicken also holds the second-best average finish of all drivers in the Mini Stock division for the month of June with a 2.83.

Pure Stock feature wins by both Mark Thorne and Wayde Thorne have them leading all drivers this season so far.

3rd is the best average finish of all drivers in the Pure Stock division for the month of June, set by Doug Moir, with two feature wins and only one finish outside the top-five. Moir also holds the best average for all drivers all season long (3.07), but he hasn’t raced every night this year as he missed two features (May 13).

3.1 is the second best average finish of all drivers in the Super Stock division this season, set by Chris Howse – but notably, the highest of drivers to have competed in all 10 features.

different drivers have won a Late Model feature this season (in a row, might I add) – Kevin Albers, Chenoweth, Billy Schwartzenburg, Chad Corcoran, and Blair Wickett.

Late Model top-fives for Albers and Burbridge lead all drivers this season.
