SAUBLE BEACH, Ontario — Knowing it was an uphill climb entering the final night of the season, Kevin Bridge did what he could to try and capture his third straight Sauble Speedway crown.
The track would elect to run a pair of heats and two features on the last points event of the year, and Bridge came out swinging in all four races. He drove the No. 17 CRX for all she had in her throughout the night, finishing second in each of the races. Entering the night 10 points behind the leader, he was able to close the gap – but not enough to take the title home as he fell just two points shy of accomplishing the ultimate goal.
While it wasn’t the title year that he envisioned, Bridge will leave the beach with his head held high as there was tons of success to be had, including six feature victories. It is also worth noting that the season wasn’t easy, with having to overcome mechanical issues to make a charge at the championship.
Bridge’s season isn’t over yet, either, as there’s still another championship up for grabs. He currently leads the Great Lakes Concrete Series standings by a single point over Warren Paxton with two races left to go. The first of those will take place this Sunday, September 16 at Sunset Speedway, with the sixth and final on Sunday, September 23 at Sunset Speedway.
Kevin Bridge Racing is proud to be supported by LiUNA, Coldwell Banker – Kincardine, UPI Energy, Spira Fire Protection, Permatex, Huronview Insurance Brokers Ltd., Daniel Kelley Custom Cabinetry, Gilcreest Speed and Custom, and Castrol.
