INNISFIL, Ontario — Another week at the track presented a rocky experience for SKLD Motorsports, as it was filled with some highs and lows along the way.
Andrew Shilling started off the night strong, running inside the top-three all through his heat, making a late-race pass to score his first checkered flag of 2022. Austyn Jennett was part of the same qualifier, and was fast en route to a third-place finish.
The boys carried the momentum into the second round of qualifying, hopeful of another pair of strong runs. Unfortunately, both would be involved in an early race crash, causing significant damage to both entries.
The SKLD Motorsports team went to work ahead of the feature, getting them both repaired so they could make it out for the main event. Shilling was fast through the full 20 laps, ultimately crossing the line with a runner-up finish. Jennett, meanwhile, started up front for the event but faded back throughout, crossing the finish line with an eighth-place finish.
Karlie Wilman, unfortunately, did not have the night she envisioned. After all the hard work through the week, it was believed they had the issues fixed for Saturday. However, once again, her car ran into mechanical issues in each of the qualifiers and feature.
SKLD Motorsports is proud to be supported by Wilman Haulage, Hamilton Contracting, Able Taxi, The Canoe, SMG Motorsports, Brent Harrison, and Short Track Musings.
