BENETEAU CLAIMS HARD-FOUGHT WIN

Grand Bend Speedway PR

Mike Beneteau (#33) of Grand Bend won the 9HP Mini Sprint event Saturday evening at Grand Bend Speedway over his rival in the division: Austen MacLennan (#77) of Vanastra. MacLennan, for his part, walked away with the 2022 championship in the division in which he scored four feature race wins over the course of the season. The on-track battle between Beneteau and MacLennan on Saturday evening featured intense competition as the two swapped the lead back and fourth staying in lock step with each other around the track.

Craig Cole (#55) of Beachville won in the Bone Stocks. Cole had opened up a strong lead over Dan Storey (#34) of Beachville which closed up significantly in the final five laps of the race. Although Storey, who had a win to his credit from earlier in the season, closed to within striking distance in those final laps, he would run out of laps as Cole claimed his first GBS win of the season.

Pro Stock competition was won by Jeremy Curtis (#77) of Durham. Gord Bennett (#67) of Grand Bend chased hard throughout the race but was unable to mount a challenge as the race wrapped up.

In the development classes, Kara Martin (#53) of Mt. Brydges returned to victory lane for the eighth time this season, Quinn Goertz (#18) of Ilderton again showed his control over the Rookie Truck division with his tenth victory, and Dylan Graham (#4) of Glencoe also took his tenth win of the season.

The next competition at Grand Bend Speedway is the season finale event on Saturday, September 3. The racing card will feature the Pro Stocks, Bone Stocks, Mini Trucks, Junior Late Models, Rookie Trucks, and Junior Sprints all in their championship events. The evening also features a special showing by the Southern Ontario Modified Series. Racing starts at 7:00 pm.
