MILGROVE, Ontario — It seems Andy Kamrath has found his groove behind the wheel of a Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC, Scott Reinhart Sales Ltd OSCAAR Modified, as he scored his third straight victory on Saturday, by winning the Frostoberfest feature presented by Touchwood Cabinets at Flamboro Speedway.

Anthony DiBello won the first heat ahead of Kelly Balson, A.J. Emms, Jason Bowden, Dale Reinhart, Craig Downey, Brad Pearsall, Luke Gignac, Norman Newman, and Ken Hayward.

Andy Kamrath won the second heat ahead of Jason Keen, Gary Elliott, Jase Cornell, Chris Milwain, Brian McLean, Wally Wilson, Geoff Chant, and Bryan Batty.

Andy Kamrath went for the daily double ahead of Emms, Newman, Gignac, Downey, Milwain, Bowden, McLean, and Wilson.

Jason Keen won the fourth heat ahead of Pearsall, Hayward, Reinhart, Balson, DiBello, Elliott, Cornell, Chant, and Batty.

The feature started off with a bang as Geoff Chant would go around on the opening lap for the caution. The second attempt was not much better, with the yellow flag waving once again as Jason Keen spun Norman Newman in turn four.

The third attempt would go cleanly with Anthony DiBello leading, as Andy Kamrath and A.J. Emms battled for second. Kamrath got the spot on Lap 2 ahead of Emms, Dale Reinhart, Kelly Balson, Brad Pearsall, Ken Hayward, Gary Elliott, Jase Cornell, Chris Milwain, Luke Gignac, and Craig Downey. Outside of the top-12, Keen and Brian McLean battled for 13th, with Keen getting the spot on Lap 9, bringing Newman through with him.

At the front of the field, Kamrath would take over the top spot on Lap 10, as DiBello and Emms battled for second. Emms got the spot on Lap 11, bringing Reinhart through with him. DiBello now ran fourth ahead of Balson, Pearsall, Hayward, Cornell, Milwain, Gignac, Downey, Keen, Newman, McLean, Chant, Bryan Batty, and Wally Wilson.

Milwain’s run came to an end on Lap 19 as he pulled into the infield with an overheating problem. Keen’s feature would end a lap later, as he brought out the race’s third caution following contact with the frontstretch wall.

Kamrath got a good restart ahead of Emms, Reinhart, Balson, DiBello, Pearsall, Elliott, Hayward, Gignac, Cornell, Newman, Downey, McLean, Chant, and Batty, as Wilson headed off the track on Lap 26, done for the event. Batty would get by Chant for 14th on Lap 32, while Downey pulled off the track done for the event a couple laps later.

The field would get strung out through the middle portion of the race, but there was still drama to be had as the race’s fourth caution came out on Lap 37 for Newman spinning Cornell off of turn four. The first attempt at a restart would be called back as a result of a jump by Kamrath. Under the caution, Newman pulled into the infield.

Kamrath got a good restart on the second attempt to hold the lead ahead of Emms, Reinhart, DiBello, Balson, Elliott, Gignac, Pearsall, Hayward, Cornell, McLean, and Chant. Things would go smoothly until Cornell went for a lazy spin off of turn two for the sixth caution at Lap 42. It was determined he spun as a result of fluid laid down on the track by Elliott, with Elliott receiving the black flag under the caution.

Following a lengthy clean-up, the green flag would be flown, with DiBello and Reinhart coming together on the restart and both taking a lengthy slide through the infield grass for the seventh caution.

Andy Kamrath got a good restart, leading the rest of the way en route to the victory ahead of A.J. Emms, Kelly Balson, Brad Pearsall, and Luke Gignac.
