PETERBOROUGH, Ontario — Running up front throughout the feature on Saturday paid off for Kyle Novis en route to scoring the Bone Stock 50-lap victory.

With 14 laps on the board, Lees led ahead of Oosterholt, Kyle Novis, Kennedy, Khan, and Finnegan, as Kelly battled for Angelo Novis for seventh.

However, their battle was short lived with the caution coming out on Lap 17 for Everingham going around after he locked up the brakes trying to stay off of Kelly.
The race would go into a weather delay, due to heavy rain fall happening. Once the shower passed, the track was dried with the race resuming with 33 laps remaining.
Oosterholt got a good restart to take over the top spot ahead of Lees, Khan, Kyle Novis, and Kennedy, with Kelly and Finnegan side-by-side for sixth. Kelly got the spot, with Griffen challenging Finnegan next.
