MILGROVE, Ontario — Kevin Bridge may have scored fourth overall at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest, but that does not even begin to express the journey he took to get that point.
Bridge started off the afternoon by posting the ninth quickest time in qualifying, but ultimately saw his time disqualified after failing to visit technical inspection following his run.
As a result, he would have to start at the back of the b-main to make his way into the main event. He made quick work in the short race, taking the lead on Lap 6 of 15 and pacing the field the rest of the way en route to winning.
Starting 25th for the first 50-lap feature, Bridge wasted no time making his way forward, battling side-by-side for the 17th position on Lap 15. He continued to move forward following the race’s first yellow flag as he moved into the eighth position on Lap 37. He would get alongside Cory Young for seventh on Lap 44, but the caution would fly for a stopped car in turn two before he could complete the pass.
Restarting on the fourth row, he’d battle to the checkered flag to score an eighth-place finish.
Starting 12th for the second 50-lap feature following an invert of the lead lap cars, he’d waste no time moving forward, poised to move into the second spot on Lap 3. However, he’d make contact with a fellow competitor two laps later, causing him to slide sideways. He’d manage to keep going without issue, though lost a little track position in the process. He’d battle for seventh through the next couple of laps, getting alongside Wayde Thorne for sixth by Lap 11.
Following a red flag for an incident off of turn four, Bridge continued to move back forward, challenging Jason Tolton for fourth on Lap 11. He was unable to complete the pass, ultimately falling back to sixth. Following a caution for debris on Lap 38, he’d battle side-by-side with Tolton for fifth, this time getting the spot and challenging Brandon Crumbie for fourth.
He then avoided an incident ahead of him, and disaster on a late-race restart, to cross the finish line with a third-place finish.
As a result, he was credited with a fourth-place finish overall. He also picked up the $400 bonus for winning the b-main courtesy of CARFAB and Jeff Bowman, as well as the Hard Charger Award bonus which was put up by Shawn Chenoweth.
