LONDON, Ontario — Battling for the top spot in the late stages of the feature, Andrew Ferreira utilized a bump-and-run on Trevor Collver on the final lap to score the victory in the Qwick Wick Super Stock feature on Friday at Delaware Speedway.
Off the pole position, Ryan Dyson broke out to the early advantage in front of Trevor Collver, with Nic Ramsay and Rick Verberne side-by-side for third, as Lane Zardo and Jay Doerr battled for fifth in front of Andrew Ferreira. Verberne took over third on Lap 7 ahead of Ramsay and Zardo, with Zardo taking Verberne and Ramsay three-wide a lap later. Verberne held off the challenge, leaving Ramsay and Zardo to battle for fourth.
Behind them, Doerr ran sixth, as Ferreira battled Jake Sheridan for seventh in front of Chase Pinsonneault and Shawn Chenoweth.

Doerr moved into fifth a lap later, bringing Ferreira, Sheridan, Pinsonneault and Shawn Chenoweth through with him, as Carson Nagy battled Ramsay for 10th.
Doerr would then challenge Zardo for fifth on Lap 18, but everybody’s eyes focused to the front of the field. Trevor Collver would get alongside Dyson for the top spot on Lap 20, taking the lead a lap later as Verberne looked to follow him through. Doerr moved up into fourth in front of Ferreira, Sheridan, Zardo, Pinsonneault, Chenoweth, and Nagy. The race’s first caution then came out a couple laps later on Lap 27.
