SAUBLE BEACH, Ontario — The first nine trips to Sauble Speedway for the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds presented by Just Foam It resulted in no repeat winners.
The statistic is no more, with Andy Kamrath dominating the 40-lap feature fueled by Touchwood Cabinets on Saturday night. It marks his second trip in a row to victory lane at Sauble, and his fifth consecutive series victory.
Marshall Schrenk won the second qualfier in front of Paul Townsend, Bryan Batty, A.J. Emms, Jake Watson, Luke Gignac, Tommy Robb, and Wally Wilson.
Andy Kamrath went for the daily double ahead of Beatty, Keen, Gignac, Batty, Liscum, Schrenk, and Wally Wilson.
The fourth qualifier ended in contact, with Chase Wilson spinning Emms in turns three and four as the pair battled for the lead. With Wilson put to the tail of the field as an involved car, it’d be Jake Watson picking up the win in front of Reinhart, Walters, Newman, Townsend, Robb, Emms, and Wilson.
Come feature time, it’d be Paul Townsend starting pole in front of Dale Reinhart, Jake Watson, Jason Keen, Marshall Schrenk, Andy Kamrath, Bryan Batty, Norman Newman, Herb Walters, Scott Beatty, Tyler Liscum, Luke Gignac, A.J. Emms, Tommy Robb, Chase Wilson, and Wally Wilson.
Jake Watson would take the top spot on the opening lap, as Reinhart battled Townsend for second. Reinhart took over the spot on Lap 2, bringing Keen, Kamrath, and Schrenk through with him. Kamrath continued to move forward, passing Keen for third on Lap 4, as Schrenk ran fifth in front of Batty and Newman, with Walters alongside Townsend for eighth. Walters got the spot, only to be challenged by Emms, with Emms taking eighth on Lap 7 in front of Walters and Townsend.
At the front of the field, the climb to the top spot was complete for Andy Kamrath with eight laps on the board, as he took the lead in front of Watson. The race’s first caution would come out at Lap 10 for Walters going around in turn three. With 30 laps to go, Kamrath led Watson, Reinhart, Keen, Batty, Newman, Schrenk, Emms, Townsend, Gignac, Beatty, Liscum, Chase Wilson, and Wally Wilson, and Robb.
Kamrath got a good restart, leaving the field stacked two-wide three rows deep as Reinhart battled Watson for second, Batty battled Keen for fourth, and Emms battled Newman for sixth. Reinhart took over second on Lap 13 with Beatty moving up to fourth. Emms continued his climb, cracking the top-five on Lap 14, with Newman alongside Keen for sixth. Newman got the spot a lap later, with Schrenk running eighth ahead of Gignac and Batty. Batty tried to move forward, getting alongside Gignac for ninth on Lap 17.
There were battles through the whole field, with Emms getting alongside Batty for fourth on Lap 18, completing the pass a lap later. Newman continued to run sixth in front of Keen, Schrenk, Batty, Gignac, Chase Wilson, and Townsend. Wilson continued to move forward, passing Gignac for 10th on Lap 22.
Emms continued his climb as he got alongside Watson for third on Lap 23, completing the pass, with Batty and Newman following him through a couple laps later. The field would get spread out, with the race appearing to have a green-flag feel until the checkered flag. However, that would not be the case, with Townsend going around for the second caution at Lap 30.
Kamrath got another good restart, with Emms able to get by Reinhart for second, as Batty ran fourth in front of Newman, Watson, and Keen. Newman then got alongside Batty with seven laps to go, completing the pass a lap later.
Andy Kamrath picked up the victory in front of A.J. Emms, Dale Reinhart, Norman Newman, and Bryan Batty.
