INNISFIL, Ontario — After coming so close each week this season with back-to-back runner-ups, Josh Bullen put everything together to score the victory on Saturday night at Sunset Speedway.
Despite starting a couple rows back in the field, Bullen would carve his way through the traffic, utilizing a three-wide move to split Ryan D’Antimo and Dylan Bowman on a restart to take over the top spot. From there, he drove away from the field as chaos broke out behind him, resulting in the feature being cut short by nine laps.
Flamboro Speedway regulars Shawn Taylor and Cole Quinton took up the next two spots on the podium, after making their way through the traffic following a deep in the field starting spot. Curtis Stewart and Jeff Richard rounded out the top-five.
Cameron McGlashan rebounded from contact to finish sixth, ahead of Mike Robinson Jr. Filling in for Charlie Smith, Robinson was involved in an early crash with Paul Bogensberger Jr. when the No. 8 Mustang spun across his nose off of turn four. Connor Maltese kept out of trouble to place eighth ahead of Peter Wakeling and Allan Lankin. McGlashan and Lankin were one of the late-race cautions, with McGlashan spinning Lankin in turn four after contact battling for a spot just outside the top-five.
The feature ended on a sour note, with a big crash on the frontstretch after Ryan D’Antimo and Bob Phinnemore got together. They’d finish 11th and 12th, followed by Paul Bogensberger, Eric Rainey, Dylan Bowman, Ken Townsend, Kyle D’Antimo, Madisson Tienkamp and Jeff Laflamme.
