The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - Com­piled by track an­nouncer Jeremy Mac­Don­ald

Mike Duskey at­tempted the rare feat of a triple win in the street stock di­vi­sion Satur­day at Oys­ter Bed Speed­way.

Af­ter wel­com­ing a baby girl into the world the day be­fore, the new fa­ther opened up the di­vi­sion with a pair of wins.

And things looked as though they were go­ing Duskey’s way early on in the fea­ture race, as the driver moved for­ward in the hunt for the elu­sive third win.

A num­ber of cau­tions erased Duskey’s lead and en­abled some of the faster cars to work their way from the back to chal­lenge him.

Colton Ford caught up and, af­ter run­ning side-by-side, com­pleted the pass, go­ing on to grab the check­ered flag. Duskey would set­tle for sec­ond.

Ford was been one of the hottest driv­ers in the di­vi­sion as of late.

He also had sec­ond- and third­place fin­ishes Satur­day, and has wins in each of the last three week­ends of rac­ing, for four on the sea­son.

Troy Burke and Jeff McInnis also picked up wins Satur­day.

The late model di­vi­sion had three dif­fer­ent win­ners.

Mark Le­clair con­tin­ued his hot streak by adding another win to his re­sume. The di­vi­sion rookie now has three wins in two week­ends.

Randy Mil­lar con­tin­ued his win­ning ways. Af­ter a fea­ture win the pre­vi­ous week, Mil­lar drove into vic­tory lane dur­ing a heat race.

Tyler Gau­thier cap­tured the fea­ture in con­vinc­ing fash­ion, be­com­ing the fifth dif­fer­ent driver to win a fea­ture in the di­vi­sion.

Cody Byrne had a suc­cess­ful night in the out­law di­vi­sion.

He opened up with a heat win and ended up bat­tling di­vi­sion leader Kendall Palmer for the fea­ture win.

Palmer pulled up to the race leader, but Byrne shut the door on any at­tempts to steal the lead, en­sur­ing his fea­ture win.

Byrne ended the evening with three podium fin­ishes. Palmer would end his night with a heat win plus a sec­ond and a third.

In the four fun di­vi­sion, Har­ley Cor­nish con­tin­ued to dom­i­nate.

In back-to-back week­ends of rac­ing, the di­vi­sion leader in points and wins swept all three races.

He now has 11 wins this year, with only one other driver, Jason Cor­nish, with a fea­ture win.

Jeff Richard and Tyler Smith also scored wins on the night.

Ac­tion re­turns to the speed­way July 18, when the street stock 50 lap su­per se­ries will take place.
