Wild, Crazy, Sideways Fun!

This past Saturday night the Young Driver's Canadian Vintage Modified returned for night #9 of the season. Fifteen cars took to Flamboro Speedway to do battle on GForceTv. After practice the committee made the decision to go from twin 20 lap feature to one 30 lap feature do to both United Racing Series not having a b-main. When the lights came on to start the show the Young Canadian Vintage Modifieds came to the party. Quintin Murdoch in the #7 and Mike Westwood in the #19 started front row with the #17 of Joe Arsenault and the #42 of Steve Murdoch starting third and fourth. Before the completion of lap one disaster struck as Westwood got hot going into turn three and appeared to make slight contact with the #17 of Joe Arsenault before the #19 machine looped it with most able to scramble but not the case for the #5 of Mike Podd as he could not escape and made contact with the right side of Westwood. At the back of the pack more trouble ensued as everyone was checking up and scattering Connor Ross in the #44 and Jerrid Morphy in the #18 got together and the right front of the #44 climbed into the left rear of the #18 where it would be parked till the safety team was able separate the cars. Despite having heavy damage Morphy was able to continue. The #44 of Connor Ross and the #5 of Mike Podd both retired from the race after collecting damage. After the clean up it was Quintin Murdoch and Joe Arsenault starting up front. Once again before one lap could be completed the #19 of Westwood be facing the wrong way after having to check up hard and had no where to go. When the green flag flew again the field was able to get single filled for the most part. On lap five disaster struck as heading off into turn one as the #38 lost a motor heading into the turn in a cloud of smoke where Westwood, Klotz and Kells were all involved wit the #46 of Klotz having the hardest hit. After a 10 minute red flag to clean up we got back racing with Quintin Murdoch jumping out to an early lead before getting loose in turns one and two and running up the track allowing the #17 of Joe Arsenault to slip on by to take the point. With T.J Marshall breathing down the neck of Arsenault before a caution came out with 13 laps remaining when a mechanical failure on the #18 of Jerrid Morphy almost spinning the #7 car before getting on the brakes and stopping just shy of the outside wall down the back stretch. On the restart the front row of Arsenault and Marshall got wild real quick as the #17 got loose coming out of four and made contact with Marshall. Slowing up on the front stretch the left front tire of Marshall left the car and bounced it's way into the billboards in turn one with Marshall able to get his car off the track as we stayed green. Joe Arsenault stayed out front when checkered flag flew taking home his first victory in 2021. Ricky Willigar finished second and Quintin Murdoch rounded out the podium.
