Jordan Howse Returns to Victory Lane at Sunset Speedway

After picking up wins on the first two nights of competition, Jordan Howse has followed it up with three runner-ups and a sixth. This past Saturday, though, he returned to victory lane as he won the St. Onge Recreation Super Stock feature at Sunset Speedway.

Johnny Morrison won the first heat ahead of Dustyn Mombourquette, Jordan Howse, Justin Holmes, Chris Allard, Brandon Passer, Coltin Everingham and Gerrit Tiemersma.

Ryan Semple won the second heat ahead of Jade Franklin, Herb Walters, Stefan Semeraro, Frank Davey, Jay Cutting and Joe Daley.

Jordan Howse won the third heat ahead of Everingham, Allard, Morrison, Tiemersma, Holmes and Passer.

Stefan Semeraro won the last heat ahead of Walters, Semple, Franklin, Davey, Cutting and Daley.

Come feature time, Johnny Morrison grabbed the early lead ahead of Cutting and Passer. Passer then got alongside Cutting for second on Lap 2, as Allard and Franklin ran side-by-side for fourth. Behind them, Semeraro and Holmes were also side-by-side. Franklin would get the fourth spot on Lap 4 ahead of Allard, as Semeraro and Holmes continued side-by-side.

Passer was able to clear Cutting for second on Lap 5, with Franklin continuing to run fourth. Franklin then got alongside Cutting for third on Lap 6, completing the pass a lap later. Franklin kept moving forward, getting alongside Passer for second at Lap 8, with Allard getting alongside Cutting for fourth. Allard got the fourth spot on Lap 9, with Semeraro following him through as Howse got alongside Cutting next.

Morrison would continue to lead with 10 laps on the board, with Franklin up to second as Passer and Allard ran side-by-side for third. Allard got the spot on Lap 11 ahead of Passer and Howse. Howse then passed Passer for fourth on Lap 12, bringing Semple, Walters, Semeraro and Everingham through with him to bump Passer back to ninth ahead of Holmes, with Mombourquette alongside Cutting for 11th.

Howse continued to move forward, getting alongside Allard for third at Lap 16, completing the pass a lap later with Semple continuing to run fifth ahead of Walters, Everingham and Semeraro. Howse would then get alongside Franklin for second at Lap 19, while Cutting and Passer got together behind them, with Cutting barely avoiding contact with the inside frontstretch wall.

The contact was enough to cause a flat tire for Cutting, though, as he’d slow with the caution flying on Lap 21. With 10 laps to go, Morrison led Howse, Franklin, Allard, Semple, Walters, Everingham, Semeraro, Holmes, Mombourquette, Passer, Daley, Davey, Cutting and Tiemersma. Semeraro would not make the restart, though, as he’d stall on the track and need a push to pit road.

The first attempt at a restart did not go cleanly with Holmes slowing with a problem in turn two.

The second restart was clean, with Howse grabbing the top spot ahead of Morrison, Franklin and Semple as Allard and Everingham went side-by-side for fifth. Semple then got alongside Franklin for third at Lap 23, as Everingham snagged the fifth spot. Semple would clear Franklin for third with five laps to go, with Everingham trying to follow suit. Everingham was unable to do so, though, falling back in line as Walters had made his way up to sixth ahead of Allard, Mombourquette and Passer.

Everingham then got back alongside Franklin for fourth with two laps to go, with the pair remaining side-by-side till the checkered flag flew.

Jordan Howse picked up the victory ahead of Johnny Morrison, Ryan Semple, Jade Franklin and Coltin Everingham. Herb Walters finished sixth, followed by Chris Allard, Dustyn Mombourquette, Joe Daley, and Justin Holmes. Brandon Passer finished 11th, followed by Gerrit Tiemersma, Frank Davey and Jay Cutting.
