MILLGROVE, Ontario — Although Quintin Murdoch did not stop in victory lane this past Saturday at Flamboro Speedway, his father Steve got the honor of doing so instead.
Despite starting eighth in the first feature, Quintin made his way forward to break into the top-five in the first eight laps, continuing to gain ground through the second half of the event. His efforts were rewarded, crossing the line in third following a last-lap pass.
His father Steve, meanwhile, started up front in the first feature, though quickly dropped back outside of the top-10 by the third lap. He did not give up, though, working his way forward through the remaining laps with a last lap pass for seventh.
The second feature did not go as Quintin would have hoped, unfortunately, as he ran into issues at the very beginning, forcing him to not complete any laps en route to 11th. Steve, meanwhile, took over the reigns of keeping the family team on a positive note. Starting on pole, he was able to lead flag-to-flag through the 25 laps, holding off the best in the business en route to his first victory of 2022.
It marks Murdoch Motorsports’ third straight week in victory lane after Quintin parked it there the first two nights. Through five races this season, Quintin has only scored one finish worse than third.
Murdoch Motorsports is proud to be supported by Young Drivers of Canada – Orangeville, Shelburne and Mount Forrest, and DJD Graphics for the 2022 season.
