MILGROVE, Ontario — The winning has continued for Daniel Hawn, as he dominated the Living Lighting, Scott Reinhart Trailer Sales Ltd OSCAAR Pro Sprint feature presented by Metro Air.
Daniel Hawn won the second qualifier ahead of Rob Summers, Rob McCall and Kevin Taylor. It’d be a heat full of mechanical issues, though, with Brody Rickwood, Tyler Cullen and Dylan Little failing to finish, while Gary Triska did not take the green flag.
James Stanley won the third heat ahead of Riddell, Battilana, Horton, and Elliott. Holmes finished sixth, followed by MacDonald, with Katherine Summers failing to finish.
Daniel Hawn went for the daily double ahead of Rob Summers, Taylor, McCall, and Cullen. Little finished sixth, while Rickwood failed to finish and Triska did not take the green flag.
Come feature time, Owen Elliott started pole ahead of Brody Rickwood, Jaden Riddell, Tyler Cullen, Brad Holmes, Kevin Taylor, Ryan Battilana, Rob Summers, James Stanley, Daniel Hawn, Katherine Summers, Brian MacDonald, Rob McCall, and Sophie Horton. The troubles began before the green flag, with Brody Rickwood pulling off due to a broken chain.
The feature got off to a messy start, with Taylor spinning in turn three on the opening lap. That would not bring out the caution, but MacDonald going around in turn four on Lap 2 would do the trick.
The restart would bring more trouble, with Riddell going around in turn four. He would get it back going without issue, as Stanley led the field on Lap 3 ahead of Hawn, Battilana, Rob Summers, McCall, and Horton, with Katherine Summers and Holmes side-by-side for seventh ahead of Elliott.
Holmes moved into the seventh position on Lap 6, ahead of Summers, Elliott, Cullen, Riddell, and MacDonald. Further up through the field, Horton would make her way by McCall for fifth, with Holmes still seventh as Riddell worked his way back up to eighth ahead of Summers and Cullen.
There’d be battles through the field, with Hawn making the move past Stanley on Lap 10 for the lead. Battilana continued to run third ahead of Rob Summers, Horton, Riddell, McCall, Holmes, Summers, Cullen, Elliott, and MacDonald.
With the front runners spread out weaving through traffic, the feature appeared to be set to go green to the end. However, that would not be the case. Riddell would spin off of turn two with 10 laps to go, bringing out the caution flag. Horton would come around, and make the evasive action to avoid hitting Riddell. Unfortunately, she caught a piece of wall, tipping over Pro Sprint on its side. Thankfully, she was uninjured in the incident. Under caution, Riddell headed into the pits, done for the event with a blown motor.
Hawn got a good restart to keep the lead ahead of Stanley, Summers, McCall and Riddell. Riddell continued to move his way forward, passing McCall for fourth on Lap 21. However, that would not last, with him going around for a third spin and third caution on the last lap.
Daniel Hawn got a good restart, scoring the victory ahead of James Stanley, Rob Summers, Rob McCall, and Jaden Riddell. Brad Holmes finished sixth, followed by Katherine Summers, Tyler Cullen, Owen Elliott, and Kevin Taylor. Brian MacDonald was the first driver failing to finish in 11th, followed by Ryan Battilana, Sophie Horton, Dylan Little, and Brody Rickwood. Gary Triska did not take the green flag.
