August Observations: Flamboro Speedway

Throughout the month of August, there was lots happening at Flamboro Speedway with potential champions taking one step closer to being crowned, and controversy happening all over in the form of some disqualifications. Now with just one month left on the year, it seems the perfect time to check in on who’s hot so far this year based on statistics alone.

is the best average of all drivers in the Pure Stock division for the month of August, set by Rodney Rutherford, with a win in both of his races.

1.5 is the best average of all drivers in the Mini Stock division for the year, thus far, set by Billy Schwartzenburg. He showed up opening night, placed first and second, and then didn’t run the car for the rest of the year prior to selling it.

1.5 is the best average of all drivers in the Late Model division for the month of August, set by Shawn Chenoweth.

1.78 is the best average of all drivers in the Late Model division for the year, thus far, set by Chenoweth.

points is all Nick Troback leads the team of Brandon McFerran and Kevin Gallant by entering the final month of racing. Certainly the division to watch if you’re looking for a battle right down to the last lap of the final night this year.

2.25 is the best average of all drivers in the Pure Stock division for the year thus far, set by Rodney Rutherford, with three wins and a sixth in his four starts.

2.5 is the best average of all drivers in the Mini Stock division for the month of August, set by Erik Dalla Riva, with six top-fives in six starts, including five podiums. This is one rookie that you better not take your eyes off in the years to come.

2.5 is the best average of all drivers in the Thunder Car division for the year thus far, set by Jaeger McMaster, with a first and fourth in his only night of competition this season. For the record, this is also the best average for the month of August, as well.

2.71 is the second-best average of all drivers in the Thunder Car division for the month of August, set by McFerran, with a win, a second, four thirds, and a fourth in seven starts.

2.75 is the second-best average of all drivers in the Pure Stock division for the month of August, set by Wayde Thorne with a win, a second, and a pair of fourths in the past two weeks.

2.8 is the best average of all drivers in the Thunder Car division for the year of those to run mostly every event – 20 of 26 possible features – thus far, set by McFerran. That should explain the points battle there, especially with Troback setting the second-best average at 3.23.

is the best average of all drivers in the Thunder Car division that ran all nine features for the month of August, set by Troback. Notably, he finished seventh twice – but he also won five times.

3.12 is the best average of all drivers in the Mini Stock division for the year of those to run mostly every event – 25 of 28 possible features – thus far, set by Russ Aicken. Surprised? I didn’t think so.

3.25 is the best average of all drivers in the Pure Stock division for the year of those to run mostly every event – 32 of 34 possible features – thus far, set by Doug Moir. It’s no surprise to see him leading the standings right now with a sizable gap, to be honest.

3.375 is the best average of all drivers in the Pure Stock division that ran all eight features for the month of August, set by Moir. Notably, his worst finish was a seventh.

3.78 is the best average of all drivers in the Mini Stock division that ran all nine features for the month of August, set by Allie Ditner, Notably, her worst finish was seventh. Hmm…..

wins for Chenoweth lead all drivers in the Late Model division this season thus far.

wins for Mark Thorne lead all drivers in Pure Stock victories this season thus far.

straight different winners could be set on Saturday night for the Pure Stocks, as they finished off August with five different drivers reaching victory lane.

different drivers have won a Late Model feature this season. Will that number grow? It’s possible…..

different drivers have won a Thunder Car feature this season – and let’s face it, the number should grow. Whose surprised to see no wins for Brad Collison for starters?

wins for Aicken leads all drivers in Min Stock victories this season thus far.

different drivers have won a Mini Stock feature this season. While the fast guys continue to rack up the flags, there are a couple others sneaking in there that could become the 10th.

10 top-fives for Kevin Albers leads all drivers this season in the Late Models, thus far. He and Wickett lead all drivers with 11 top-10’s, by the way, in the 12 races.

12 different drivers have won a Pure Stock feature this season – and there’s a couple that could easily make the number go even higher before the final checkered flies.

13 points is all veteran Chenoweth leads youngster Schwartzenburg in the Late Model standings by. The competition has been fierce between the pair all year, including some questionable moments, so it’s anyone’s guess what happens from here on out.

21 top-fives for both Troback and Chris Howse leads all drivers this season in the Thunder Cars, thus far. They also both leads the division in top-10’s with 26 a piece.

24 top-fives for Moir lead all drivers this season in the Pure Stocks, thus far.

24 top-fives for Allie Ditner leads all drivers this season in the Mini Stocks, thus far. She also leads the division in top-10’s with 28 to date – and means she has posted no finishes outside of the top-10. Not too shabby.

32 top-10’s for Mark Thorne leads all drivers this season in the Pure Stocks, thus far. That means he has only placed outside of the top-10 twice. Not too shabby.

33 points is the gap between the team of Kody and Doug Moir over Mark Thorne entering the final night of the year.

46 points is the advantage that Aicken and Nick Roth hold over Ditner entering the final month as Aicken aims for his second straight championship.
