Glenn Watson continues to prove why he’s one of the quickest super late model drivers in the province, picking up another victory on Friday night at Kawartha Speedway.
Glenn Watson won the second heat ahead of Charlie Gallant, John Cadman, Derrick Tiemersma, and Derek Lynch.
Come feature time, Ryan Kimball started pole ahead of John Cadman, Gary Passer, Glenn Watson, Tyler Hawn, Charlie Gallant, Kelly Balson, Ian Bourque, Derrick Tiemersma, Adrian Foster, Jamie Richardson, and Derek Lynch.
Kimball got out to the early lead, putting a solid gap on the field with Cadman in toe, while Watson took advantage of the early laps to slip past Passer for third. Behind them, Hawn ran fifth ahead of Gallant, Balson, Tiemersma, Bourque, Foster, Richardson and Lynch.
Ultimately, it wasn’t meant to be Kimball as a radiator hose let go on the No. 29 Super Late Model, bringing his early dominate run to a halt on Lap 18 of 50.
The restart saw a battle for the lead between Cadman and Watson, with Watson grabbing the top spot. Watson then began to gap the field ahead of Cadman as Balson made his way by Gallant to move up into the third spot. Behind them, Passer spent a good part of the middle portion in fifth, though eventually headed down pit road with mechanical problems.
Glenn Watson led the rest of the way en route to his fifth victory of 2017, followed by John Cadman with his sixth top-five finish. Kelly Balson finished third for his second top-five in two starts this year so far, followed by Charlie Gallant with his sixth top-five of 2017. Derrick Tiemersma finished fifth after missing the previous two weekends due to mechanical problems.
Tyler Hawn finished sixth for his seventh top-10, followed by Adrian Foster in seventh for his OSCAAR debut. Ian Bourque finished eighth in his second start of 2017, followed by Jamie Richardson with his fourth straight top-10. Derek Lynch rounded out the top-10, followed by Gary Passer and Ryan Kimball.
