PETERBOROUGH, Ontario — Finding his way in a couple incidents throughout the event, Rick Spencer-Walt would place just outside the top-10 at Peterborough Speedway’s Autumn Colours Classic.
Spencer-Walt placed third in his lone heat, as the second qualifier was cancelled due to rain on Saturday. The invert would see him start pole for the 50-lap feature, where he’d fade back to second on the initial start. Following an early restart, he would drop back to eighth by the next yellow flag at Lap 6.
Restarting on the fourth row, he’d gain a spot on the restart, only to be caught up in the Lap 13 caution that started with contact further up the field. He would work his way back forward, battling for fifth, but unfortunately, he fell back over the run, which made the decision to pit under the Lap 22 yellow flag very easy.
Restarting at the tail of the field, he was unable to make a lot of progress, electing to take another trip down pit road on Lap 18 under the seventh caution. Restarting tail once again, he would work his way back up to 12th initially, running ninth when the caution came out at Lap 43.
Though the final seven laps, he kept trying to battle forward, but getting a piece of another incident would ultimately relegate him to a result outside the top-10.
The opportunity to drive the Super Stock came about through a partnership between Jeff Drimmie, K.O.D Disposal, and JDC Motorsports
