DAILY NEWS STAFF
SOUTH BUXTON – Tyler Lozon wanted more from his car in its heat race Saturday at South Buxton Raceway, so his crew got to work before the feature.
Their efforts paid off with a victory in the Sport Stocks championship race.
Dylan Wolters and 14-year-old Cody Wilson also celebrated championship wins for the Mini Mods and Bombers, respectively.
The two other classes – Late Models and Modifieds – will hold their championship races this Saturday.
Runner-up Brad Bloomfield tipped his hat to Lozon after the Sport Stocks championship race. Doris Lajeunesse was third.
Wolters took the checkered flag in the Mini Mods feature after starting in the fourth position and avoiding the cautions.
“I’m really happy to be in the winner’s circle,” he said.
Elliot Wilton placed second and then announced, “This is our last race. It’s nice to go out with a good finish.” Andrew Pfahler was third. Wilson started in the sixth position in the Bombers feature and worked his way through the field to the front.
“It was a rough track, a rollercoaster of a race,” he said.
Carter Pickering was second and Brian Koomans was third.
Eric Spangler of Lake City, Mich., won the Late Models feature. Dale Glassford was second and Mike Lewis was third.
“This was an extremely fast track tonight,” Spangler said. “I’d like to thank the promoters for that.”
Spangler teased his return for the Joey Atkinson Memorial Canadian Fall Shootout on Sept. 29-30.
Brad McLeod drove to victory lane for the first time in seven years by winning the Modifieds feature. Eugene Hoekstra was second and Clayton Smith was third.
“Not bad for an old guy, huh?” McLeod said.
