Many storylines are beginning to play out as the Oyster Bed Speedway hosts its last Sunday afternoon of racing today before moving to the more traditional Saturday night cards.
Races are scheduled to start today at 2 p.m.
In the mini-stock division driver Jason Baglole continues his quest for his third straight weekend sweep. After going five-for-five, Baglole was stuck in the middle of the pack during last Sunday’s super series race. The two race leaders, Tyler Smith and Charles Woolaver, were fighting for the lead as they came around turns one and two following a restart and began pounding on each other, as they did throughout most of the race. This time they ended up taking each other out of the race. Both drivers were given a black flag and had to drive back to the pits.
It opened up an opportunity for Baglole to keep the streak alive. Baglole finished second, but the winning car was deemed illegal after a post-race technical inspection, giving Baglole the victory.
Today marks the opening round of the late model super series.
Robbie MacEwen is looking like a favorite to win the opening round. The former division champion displayed his ability last weekend for the win despite starting near the back.
Brody MacQuarrie won two races last Sunday and will be in contention for the super series opener.
Defending champion Kris Fournier’s car looks a bit off following last season’s championship run. Despite capturing one win so far this season, there is room for improvement for the veteran driver and one can be sure his team will be looking to get the car running at 100 per cent today.
Mark Leclair continues to lead the way in the street stock division. In the opening two race cards, he has finished in the top three while claiming both feature wins.
Former points champion Nick Chaisson seems to be his closest competitor also not finishing outside the top three in the six races he has completed.
The outlaw division saw Kendall Palmer finally pick up his first career win at the speedway. Following the post-race tech inspections, Palmer was handed all three wins for the day after the race winner was deemed illegal giving Palmer a sweep on the day’s races.
