Will Gibbons Rebounds from Practice Crash for Podium Performance

HAGERSVILLE, Ontario — When Craig Kamrath had a motor let go in practice, several drivers unfortunately got caught up in the oil through turns three and four. Will Gibbons was one of those, making contact with the outside turn three wall.

Fortunately, Gibbons crew was able to make the necessary repairs to his No. 10 Honda Civic in time for the main event, running up front throughout the race en route to a third-place finish.

“We didn’t think we were going to make it here after we smoked the wall in practice,” he told SHORT TRACK MUSINGS. “The car got wrecked up pretty good, but got it back together.”

Although he came up short on the big prize, he feels his team wasn’t missing much in comparison to Doug Butler and Warren Paxton.

“I could watch out of my A-pillar window and it seemed we were reeling them in slowly, but maybe just needed a caution to truly figure things out,” he commented.

Entering the event, Gibbons had been making waves at Flamboro Speedway with a win and 11 top-five finishes. However, a disqualification on July 20 has left the waters milky moving forward.

“I’m not sure if I’ll be back there as I’m not sure if I’m welcomed back,” he said. “But we’ll go from there.”
