MILGROVE, Ontario — Making his first trip of the season to Flamboro Speedway, it turned into a rough night for Kevin Bridge.
As he has done across the province, the No. 17 Honda was fast throughout practice and the beginning stages of both features on Saturday night. However, with a full field of cars on the tight track, contact was not out of the question. Several drivers would get into each other throughout both events, which did not play well for Bridge as he was one of those who ultimately got to go for a spin through the infield grass.
When all the action was done and settled, he would walk out of the oval with finishes of 10th and 11th in the pair of 20-lap features. Thus far, the season hasn’t gone as envisioned as he showed speed in qualifying at Sunset Speedway’s Spring Velocity with a third-place finish in his qualifying heat, but was unable to run the feature due to rain.
Although there were no other events scheduled pre-season for Bridge through the month of June, he does have a busy month ahead in July. It is tentatively set to begin at Grand Bend Speedway on the 7th, followed by what is being deemed as the biggest event of the year for Mini Stocks – Jukasa Motor Speedway on July 25.
“I think everybody in the Mini Stocks has that one circled on their calendar,” Bridge said pre-season. “It’s the best short track facility in Canada right now, if not North America, for the amount of money that they’ve put into that track. It’s going to be a great show as I can see 20-25 cars easily there, which will still be a great race with having the cream of crop there. “
