INNISFIL, Ontario — Zach Latimer would compete in his first ever Canadian Legends Nationals this past weekend at Sunset Speedway, but it would not go smoothly as hoped.
Following Saturday’s qualifying, Latimer would start deep in the field for the first feature, and experienced a rough beginning as he was caught up in an incident with another driver on Lap 2. Restarting from the tail of the field, he would begin to make up some ground through the pack, though ran into trouble with a spin in turn four on Lap 20.
Restarting once again at the tail of the field, he’d begin to make up ground once again, crossing the finish line in the 17th position.
As a result, he would be forced to the run b-main ahead of the second main event, which he would score a ninth-place finish.
Starting 19th for the second feature, he would look to make his way forward, though would come together with a fellow driver in turn two on Lap 13. Restarting at the tail of the field, he’d make his way up to 17th before the feature was called at just 17 laps of 30 complete due to rain.
Thanks to DDC contracting, Belmar roofing, RIM mechanical, Creecher’s Design, Kreuger Electric, and Store Front Awnings and Signs for all the support of the Latimer Brothers.
