Justin Holmes Score Second Super Stock Feature Victory

Finding his way to the front, Justin Holmes would hold off a hard charging field to score his second career St. Onge Recreation Super Stock feature victory at Sunset Speedway.

The first heat featured a caution at Lap 8 to clean up debris all the way down the frontstretch and into turn one as the nose came apart off of Nick Tooley’s car after he made contact with the back of Dustyn Mombourquette. Coltin Everingham picked up the win ahead of Mombourquette, Ethan Constable, Stefan Semeraro, Frank Davey, Gerrit Tiemersma, Dan Robb, and Nick Tooley.

The second heat can only be described as “crazy” as it should’ve produced a couple different cautions, but yet somehow remained green throughout, even with a three-wide battle for the lead at one point. Tom Walters survived it all for the win ahead of Andy Kamrath, Brandon Passer, Dan Archibald, Justin Holmes, Ryan Semple, Robbie Sikes, and Johnny Morrison.

The third heat featured an incident on Lap 4, that started on the frontstretch and ended in turn one. Constable would tag the back of Tiemersma, causing him to get sideways and into the wall, tagging Mombourquette in the process. After the contact, Tiemersma would try to cut back in line entering turn one, cutting across Everingham’s bumper. This would cause Everingham to get sideways, getting into Robb, who spun and got into Tooley, causing him to go around as well. Stefan Semeraro took the win ahead of Davey, Constable, and Everingham.

Ryan Semple won the fourth heat ahead of Archibald, Holmes, Kamrath, Walters, Morrison, and Sikes.

Come feature time, Dustyn Mombourquette started pole ahead of Ethan Constable, Tom Walters, Frank Davey, Stefan Semeraro, Justin Holmes, Coltin Everingham, Dan Archibald, Ryan Semple, Brandon Passer, Andy Kamrath, Dan Robb, Nick Tooley, Robbie Sikes, and Johnny Morrison.

Dan Archibald would take the sixth spot on Lap 7, with Kamrath getting alongside Walters for seventh, as Passer and Everingham battled for ninth ahead of Semple and Sikes.

Further up the field, Constable continued to lead now ahead of Davey as Holmes got alongside Mombourquette for third. Holmes took the spot on Lap 13, bringing Semeraro through with him to bump Mombourquette back to fifth ahead of Kamrath, Passer, and Semple. Holmes continued to move forward, getting alongside Davey for second on Lap 16, completing the pass one lap later.

With five laps to go, Holmes led Constable, Davey, Semeraro, Kamrath, Passer, Mombourquette, Everingham, Walters, Robb, Tooley, Archibald, Semple, Sikes, and Morrison.
