MILLGROVE, Ontario — Despite showing speed, some rough racing and contact would ultimately derail SKLD Motorsports throughout the day at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest on Saturday.
The team showed promise through qualifying, with both Andrew Shilling and Doug Wilman making the cut to start the feature without having to run the b-main. The same couldn’t be said for Karlie Wilman and Austyn jennet, who both found themselves hopeful of placing in the top-six in the 12-lap transfer event.
Starting on the front row, Karlie Wilman kept herself up front through the opening lap, but contact into the side of her No. 14 entry sent her around in turn two. The damage was too much, as she was forced to hit pit side on the restart as a result. Jennett, meanwhile, was caught up in an incident on the same lap at the opposite end of the track, with three-wide battling turning into chaos. He was able to continue, but a finish of 12th would not be enough.
In the main event, Andrew Shilling started off strong, hopeful of making up some track position throughout. He managed to escape the contact and made a couple strong passes en route to placing 19th. Doug Wilman, meanwhile, found contact right away with a trip through the infield grass as a result on the opening lap, followed by some more down the backstretch a couple laps later. He kept going despite everything, crossing the finish line in 24th.
