The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - Files from Martin Bélanger

The Fire­ball En­duro was com­pleted in front of a sell­out crowd, as 281 cars reg­is­tered for the week­end races at the Corn­wall Mo­tor Speed­way.

The ladies 4- cylin­der class started the af­ter­noon, with 32 cars tak­ing part in the 50-lap event. Chelsea Cho­lette dom­i­nated the race, lap­ping the field, to win the di­vi­sion.

The 6-cylin­der di­vi­sion took the track with 60 cars reg­is­tered. When all 50 laps were com­pleted, Dakota Be­langer from Winch­ester had the win.

Up next was the mini- van event, a 25-lap­per. Brett Camp­bell was vic­to­ri­ous, driv­ing his #12 van.

The first of two 50- lap 4cylin­der races saw 60 cars take the green, as Phil Ger­main went on to cap­ture the crown. There was a lot of ac­tion in this event, with just a dozen cars still run­ning at the fin­ish.

Next, the 8-cylin­der cars were on the track with their 50-lap event. Start­ing from the 30th po­si­tion, Jesse Thomp­son stormed through the field to win the di­vi­sion.

The fi­nal race of the af­ter­noon was the sec­ond group of 4cylin­ders, with 74 cars at the start. Jamie Scharf was tops at the end, with only four cars able to fin­ish the event.

The en­duro put a cap on the 2016 sea­son at the dirt track. The Lavergne fam­ily would like to thank ev­ery­one for their sup­port this sum­mer, adding rac­ing will re­turn in 2017 in full force.
