INNISFIL, Ontario — The strong season continues for Rick Spencer-Walt at Sunset Speedway as he picked up his fourth feature victory of 2019 on Saturday night.
Rick Spencer-Walt posted the quickest time in qualifying, timing in quickest with a lap of 14.769 seconds. He started off the feature strong, leading all the way until a caution on Lap 26 for a single car spin. Restarting first with nine laps to go, he would lose the lead on the restart to Dwayne Baker. Although he was able to get alongside him with two laps to go, Spencer-Walt lost out by 0.496 seconds at the flag, finishing second.
Starting ninth for the second feature, he wasted no time getting to the front, passing Travis Hallyburton at the halfway mark of the feature for second. He would then track down race leader Gord Shepherd, getting right to the back bumper of the No. 10 Late Model with 10 to go. Spencer-Walt would make his move with seven to go, with the pair remaining side-by-side right to the checkered as Spencer-Walt beat Shepherd by 0.600 seconds.
To date, with 13 features now in the books for the 2019 campaign, Spencer-Walt has scored four wins, five runner-ups, a pair of thirds, a fourth, and a seventh. As a result, he currently leads the track division standings.
He is also currently leading the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I Provincial Standings, and sits 16th in the national standings (despite some United States competitors having ran twice the amount of features), just 16 points out of the top-10. Notably, he is the highest ranked Canadian in the standings.
Spencer-Walt will be back in action on Saturday, August 10 for the next night of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I competition at Sunset Speedway.
