Saturday night was South Buxton Raceway’s Memorial Night in all four classes.

It was the third time Joey Brosseau #47 won the Brian Outhouse Memorial Schinkels Gourmet Meat Modified Feature Race. After beginning the feature in 6th position, he made a high side pass that gave him the lead. “We’re not going to play follow the leader with a trophy on the line” he said in victory lane. Brosseau tested out the high side while under caution and waited until the right moment to overtake the field and collect another feature win. Justin Mills #6 came back to the race after an unfortunate event, which resulted in him driving off the track, and finishing in second place. Drew Smith #86 finished third.

Celebrating on the roof of his car with friend Jeff Schives, Marshall Hereygers #31 brought home the Cory Schives Memorial Great Canadian Oil Change Mini Mod Race for the second time in a row. After making some car adjustments following the heat race, Hereygers was quick to sail to the front of the pack with a 1.9 second lead on his opponents. “It means a lot to me, it means a lot to Jeff, this race means a lot” Hereygers said surrounded with his family and friends. Shawn Jones #27, who was a best friend to the late Cory Schives, drove with determination and emotion. He couldn’t quite catch Hereygers and he finished second. Tim Mackenzie #81 who started the race in fifth place finished third.

A familiar face was back in victory lane following the Len Bryden Memorial Auto Tech Sales and Service Thunderstock Feature. Steve Shaw #96 began the feature in the 6th position and in typical Shaw style, was quick to maneuver his opponents to take on race leader Chris Hale #79. After a hard battle with Hale, Shaw made an inside pass in turn 1 in lap seventeen to earn himself another feature win of the season. Hale, a top runner at Ohsweken Speedway, finished second and Kevin Damore #39 finished third.

“I ate my bowl of Lucky Charms this morning” a beaming Dale Glassford #60 said following the Gord Dewael Memorial West Side Performance Plus Late Model Feature. Dale began the Feature Race at the front and maintained his lead while avoiding several cautions throughout the night. “I’ve never won the Gord Dewael Memorial ever, its an honour to win it” Glassford said while surrounded by his and Dewaels family. Jim Dale #00 began the feature in the ninth position. He drove hard around the top of the track and finished second. Tim Mackenzie #03 finished third.
