MILGROVE, Ontario — Jordan Latimer was headed for a strong run in the second feature at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest, when he’d take flight after contact on the frontstretch ending his night early.
Latimer started off the afternoon by qualifying ninth for the first 50-lap feature, dropping back a couple spots in the opening laps of the feature. He’d quickly begin to make up lost ground, returning to the top-10 by Lap 10, before involving an incident ahead of him to move up to ninth.
Restarting on the fifth row at Lap 34, he’d hold off the challengers around to cross the finish line eighth in the first feature.
Starting sixth for the second feature following an invert of the lead lap cars, he’d make contact in the early stages of the event with Dennis Cybalski while battling for third.
Restarting at the tail of the field, he’d look to move back forward when contact on a Lap 11 restart with a fellow competitor sent Latimer’s nose up in the air, before coming down hard and the No. 90 Super Stock sliding through the turn one grass. Latimer was uninjured, but that unfortunately brought an end to his Frostoberfest chances, credited with a 16th-place finish in the second feature.
As a result of the extent of the damage, Latimer will be unable to participate in this weekend’s Autumn Colours Classic at Peterborough Speedway. The team will still be in attendance with Zach Latimer behind the wheel of his Ontario Legends Series entry.
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.
Special thanks to Craig Ellis for the opportunity.
