The Chatham Daily News - - SPORTS -


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.
