PETERBOROUGH, Ontario— Richard Woodland may be crowned the 2021 Outlaw Midgets presented by Canadian Tire Innsfil Champion, but that doesn’t mean all the business is taken care of for this year.
After all, there’s still a big trophy up for grabs – the honor of being an Autumn Colours Classic feature winner. The outlaws will do battle for the top prize this weekend at Peterborough Speedway on Saturday, October 9.
Mike Bradley enters this weekend with momentum, following four top-10’s in the last five races. Though as a whole, the success is no surprise as he has now scored 12 top-five’s in his last 14 series starts. There’s no reason he cannot carry the success into this weekend, having scored a pair of top-five’s in his last three Peterborough appearances.
Richard Woodland also knows what it takes to run well at Peterborough, placing third and fourth in his previous two appearances. He enters this weekend following a victory at Sunset Speedway, and no finishes worse than fourth this season.
Larry Lawson, meanwhile, has just two finishes worse than fourth in the first six events this season, including a win at Sauble Speedway. He was also your Peterborough Speedway runner-up in August.
Wayne McKibbon is still looking for his first career victory, and has been strong to start 2021, having scored eight top-10 finishes in a row dating back to 2019, including a runner-up at Sauble. He placed seventh in his last appearance at Peterborough.
Jessica James is looking for a change in her luck, after scoring a 10th and 12th in her pair of most recent appearances. She has also done well at Peterborough in the past, scoring a victory there in 2019.
Rob Harrison may be the dark horse to watch, as it seems he gets faster with each bit of experience he gains behind the wheel. It has showed this year with just one finish worse than ninth including a pair of fifths. He finished sixth in his second trip to Peterborough.
Jody Bound hopes to turn things around after experiencing issues at Sunset Speedway. He finished second and eighth in his last two appearances at Peterborough.
Adam Tyo may be someone to watch, having scored no finishes worse than ninth this year, including a pair of sevenths. He placed 12thin his last appearance at Peterborough.
Dave Bradley is proving his brother isn’t the only fast driver in the family, as evident by four straight top-five’s including a win at Peterborough Speedway in August.
Jamie Kay is off to a solid start for his rookie campaign, with just one finish outside of the top-10 this season. He finished fourth in his first appearance at Peterborough.
Zach Millman will hope to keep things rolling following a 10th-place finish at Sunset Speedway. He hasn’t had the best of luck at Peterborough in the past, something he hopes to change on Sunday.
Kevin Spiez hopes to build some momentum moving forward, after scoring a fourth at Sunset last month. He has a pair of ninths and an 11thin his last three appearances at Peterborough.
