Glenn Watson topped off his stellar Outlaw Ontario Super Late Model season with a bang, scoring the victory at Peterborough Speedway’s Autumn Colours Classic.
Glenn Watson started pole, followed by Brandon Watson, John Cadman, Ryan Kimball, Dario Capirchio, Jordan Howse, Roy Passer, Gary McLean, Jamie Richardson, and Charlie Gallant.
Glenn Watson led the opening lap ahead of Brandon and Cadman, with Kimball in third ahead of Howse and Capirchio. Brandon Watson would take the top spot on Lap 3, with the caution coming out five laps later for Richardson spinning on the backstretch. With 68 laps to go, Brandon Watson led Glenn Watson, Cadman, Kimball, Capirchio, Passer, McLean, Gallant, and Richardson.
Brandon Watson would get a good restart ahead of Glenn Watson, Cadman, Howse, Kimball, and Passer as Capirchio spun off turn two on Lap 10. There’d be no caution, though, as Gallant ran seventh ahead of McLean, Richardson, and Capirchio. McLean began to move his way forward, passing Gallant for seventh on Lap 15.
Howse’s strong run hit a snag when he climbed the backstretch wall on Lap 34. This would get Kimball right on his back bumper, as he was stuck behind the lap car of Gallant. There’d be contact three laps later with Kimball and Howse, causing Howse to make significant contact with the turn three wall, ending his race on Lap 37. At the halfway mark, Brandon Watson led Glenn Watson, Cadman, Passer, McLean, Kimball, Gallant, Richardson, and Capirchio
Brandon Watson got another good restart ahead of Glenn Watson and Cadman, with McLean moving his way up into fourth ahead of Passer, Richardson, Kimball, Gallant, and Capirchio. Kimball began to move forward, passing Richardson for sixth on Lap 48, with Gallant following him through a lap later.
The race would take a turn when Brandon Watson began to slow with an apparent motor issue over the course of a five lap period. As he headed to pit road on Lap 60, Passer spun off turn four courtesy of contact from Kimball. Cadman would head down pit road under caution, done with a rear gear issue. The clean-up of fluid that had been laid down for Cadman allowed Watson’s team time to change the battery, getting him back out before the race went back green, still on the lead lap.
Having inherited the lead, Glenn Watson out-battled McLean on the restart to cruise away with the lead as Passer and Kimball battled for third. Kimball got the spot on Lap 62, with Brandon Watson moving into fourth ahead of Passer.
Glenn Watson picked up the win ahead of Gary McLean, Ryan Kimball, Brandon Watson, Roy Passer, Jamie Richardson, Charlie Gallant, Dario Capirchio, John Cadman, and Jordan Howse.
