Jake Sheridan Scores Grisdale Triple Crown at Flamboro

Jake Sheridan is quickly putting his name on the Pro Late Model landscape in style as he scored the Grisdale Triple Crown at Flamboro Speedway this past weekend in his rookie season.

Ryan Kimball would set the quickest time in qualifying with a lap of 14.869 seconds ahead of Treyten Lapcevich, Jordan Lawrence, Steve Laking, Jake Sheridan, Cayden Lapcevich, Tim Ellis, Billy Schwartzenburg, Tim Norris, Hudson Nagy, Kevin Albers, Andy Kamrath, Mark Burbridge, Matt Box, Chad Corcoran, James Horner, Trevor Thompson, Chris Bochler, Gary Elliott, Trevor Monaghan, Mike Klotz, Carson Nagy, Mike Westwood, Chris Howse, Allie Ditner, Scott Entwistle, and Jeremy Taggart.

Ryan Kimball would grab the initial lead in the first of the three 50-lap features, but Laking would get alongside him for the top spot on the second lap. Steve Laking took the lead on Lap 3 ahead of Kimball, Lawrence, Sheridan, Treyten Lapcevich, Cayden Lapcevich, Schwartzenburg, Ellis, Kamrath, Norris, Hudson Nagy, Albers, and Burbridge.

Kamrath continued to move forward, passing Ellis for eighth on Lap 10, as Norris continued to run 10th ahead of Nagy, Albers, and Burbridge. Monaghan would go for a spin on Lap 11, but he’d get it back going without a caution. Nagy moved into 10th on Lap 13 ahead of Albers, Burbridge, Box, Corcoran, Horner, Norris, Thompson, Carson Nagy, Klotz, and Howse. Norris continued to fall back, with both Thompson and Nagy getting by him on Lap 17.

The field would be mostly strung out single-file as laps continued to click off the board, except for Corcoran and Kamrath both getting by Box for position at Lap 21. The race’s first caution came out three laps later for Carson Nagy and Taggart going around in turn four.

The first attempt at a restart didn’t go smoothly with Kamrath spinning going into turn one, collecting Cayden Lapcevich, Burbridge, Horner, Thompson, and Ellis in the process. The second attempt did, with Laking continuing to lead with Lawrence up to second ahead of Kimball, Lapcevich, Hudson Nagy, Schwartzenburg, Sheridan, Box, Corcoran, Norris, and Albers. Corcoran continued to move forward, passing Box on Lap 32.

The leaders would find themselves knee-deep in lap traffic, trying to find their way through. It wouldn’t work out well, as Laking got hung up behind a car, with Lawrence making contact with him, causing Laking to go around for a spin. This would give Kimball the lead for the restart ahead of Lapcevich, Nagy, Schwartzenburg, Sheridan, Norris, Albers, Ellis, Burbridge, Carson Nagy, Thompson, Howse, Laking, Klotz, and Lawrence.

Treyten Lapcevich got a good restart to take the lead ahead of Kimball, Hudson Nagy, Sheridan, Corcoran, Schwartzenburg, Norris, Albers, and Burbridge. Schwartzenburg would then pass Corcoran for fifth on Lap 37, with Norris following him through. Albers moved into seventh two laps later, bumping Corcoran back to eighth ahead of Ellis, Burbridge, Thompson, Lawrence, Box, Carson Nagy, and Howse.

Albers continued to move forward, passing Norris for sixth on Lap 45, bringing Corcoran, through with him. The fourth caution came out two laps later for Carson Nagy going around in turn four.

The restart would see Howse go for a spin, but there would be no caution thrown. Treyten Lapcevich would lead the rest of the way to score the victory ahead of Ryan Kimball, Hudson Nagy, Kevin Albers, and Jake Sheridan.

Lawrence moved into third on Lap 18 ahead of Corcoran, Schwartzenburg, Albers, Sheridan, Kimball, Laking, Treyten Lapcevich, with Ellis back to 11th ahead of Cayden Lapcevich, Howse, and Mornaghan. Mornaghan then passed Howse on Lap 22 to move into 13th, bringing Hudson Nagy through with him.

The race’s first caution then came out on Lap 27 for Klotz spinning in turn three and four. It seemed that it would black flag fever as both Carson Nagy and Taggart got a straight black flag, while Cayden Lapcevich got the meatball blackflag.

The first attempt at a restart produced the second caution with Thompson going around in turn one. The second attempt would see Norris go around, but there’d be no yellow this time as he kept it going. Box held the initial advantage with Lawrence up into second ahead of Schwartzenburg and Sheridan, as Burbridge and Laking battled for fifth.

Lawrence grabbed the lead on Lap 27, with Schwartzenburg, Sheridan, and Laking following him through over the next three laps to bump Box back to fifth. The third caution then came out on Lap 33 for Kimball spinning Corcoran. Under the yellow flag, Lapcevich headed pit side with a mechanical issue.

Lawrence got a good restart ahead of Schwartzenburg, Sheridan, Laking, Box and Ellis, with Treyten Lapcevich in seventh ahead of Monaghan, Kimball, Hudson Nagy, Albers, and Burbridge. Ellis would get alongside Box for fifth on Lap 38, taking the spot a lap later, bringing Lapcevich through with him as Kimball got alongside Box for seventh.

Jordan Lawrence led the rest of the way to take the victory ahead of Billy Schwartzenburg, Jake Sheridan, Steve Laking, and Tim Ellis.

Burbridge then got alongside Monaghan for fifth on Lap 10, taking the spot a lap later, with Lapcevich and Lapcevich following through.

Kimball was the next to challenge Monaghan, now for eighth. The pair would get together off of turn four, with Kimball getting up on the wall a little, before climbing up on the side of Monaghan for the race’s first caution at Lap 12. With 38 laps to go, Albers led Norris, Corcoran, Burbridge, Lapcevich, Laking, Nagy, Sheridan, and Horner.

Albers got a good restart to keep the lead, with Corcoran up to second ahead of Treyten Lapcevich, Nagy, Sheridan, Jordan Lawrence, Cayden Lapcevich, Tim Ellis, Steve Laking, Mark Burbridge, Tim Norris, Billy Schwartzenburg, Matt Box, James Horner, and Trevor Monaghan.

With 23 laps to go, Albers led Treyten, Sheridan, Lawrence, Cayden, Corcoran, Nagy, Burbridge, Box, Schwartzenburg, Kimball, Monaghan, Horner, Thompson, and Mike Klotz.

The restart would see Thompson spin in turn two, for the yellow flag, as Treyten Lapcevich headed pit side with a problem. The second attempt would go no smoother with the third caution for Norris coming to a stop in turn one after contact with the wall.

The third attempt saw a battle for the lead between Albers and Sheridan, with Albers keeping the top spot as Cayden Lapcevich moved into second on Lap 30 ahead of Sheridan, Lawrence, Corcoran, Nagy, and Schwartzenburg, with Burbridge and Kimball side-by-side for eighth. Kimball got the spot on Lap 33 ahead of Burbridge, with Monaghan running 10th ahead of Box, Klotz, and Ellis.

Schwartzenburg would catch Corcoran for fifth, with contact between the pair sending Corcoran spinning with six laps to go.  There’d be no caution for the spin, but Schwartzenburg was penalized for rough driving, moved from his finishing position to tail end of the lead lap cars.
