In a feature filled with chaos from top to bottom, Jordan Howse cruised to yet another St. Onge Recreation Super Stock victory at Sunset Speedway on Saturday night.

Come feature time, the opening saw Stefan Semeraro and Herb Walters go side-by-side for the lead, with Semeraro getting the top spot on Lap 2 as Dustyn Mombourquette got alongside Walters. However, the caution would fly for Coltin Everingham leaking fuel.

Douctte was able to clear Semeraro on Lap 11, getting alongside Everingham for sixth when the caution flew for Mombourquette going aroind in turn two.

The restart was not smooth at all, with Walters getting sideways off of turn two, resulting in chaos as everybody scattered to get around him, including a spin by Daley. Everybody was able to keep going without a caution, though, as Allard led with Morrison and Howse side-by-side for second ahead of Tiemersma, Doucette and Semple.

Semple continued to climb forward, getting alongside Doucette for fifth on Lap 14, completing the pass two laps later. At the front, Howse tracked down Allard for the lead, getting alongside him just past the halfway mark. He was able to complete the pass, moving into the top spot on Lap 19 ahead of Allard and Morrison, as Tiemersma and Semple went side-by-side for fourth, with a three-wide battle behind them for sixth between Doucette, Everingham, and Semeraro.

Tiemersma initially cleared Semple for the fourth spot on Lap 22, but Semple came back a lap later to complete the pass. Behind them, Doucette ran sixth, with Semeraro getting alongside him with six laps to go. Semeraro completed the pass, bringing Weeda and Everingham through with him over the next two laps. Doucette now ran ninth ahead of Cybalski, with Weeda getting alongside Semeraro for sixth on the final lap.
