Track Talk

Saturday September 22nd was the final points race of the season at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. The Cooper Tire Thunder Stocks, Budget Car and Truck Rental Street Stocks and the WSSL Auto Parts Super Late Models were the local classes racing. The JB Water and Vacuum Service Super Truck Racing Bobcat of Saskatoon Series made their fourth and final appearance in 2012.

To start the event off the Super Truck Racing Series qualified and #20 Neil Fitzgerald would take top honors yet again with a time of 15.229.

After qualifying they headed back out on the track to start the night. In heat race 1A #41 Len Zimmer captured the checkered flag holding off #44 Dean “the caveman” Braham and #76 Dusty O Connell came in third. Heat race 1B saw local Pro Truck driver Scott Lucas in the #54 truck owned by Dean Braham, and local Late Model driver Trent Seidel in Jamie “Booger” McClennon's #33 truck. Both drivers showed their talent as they worked their way to the front and battled for the win. #54 Scott Lucas would win that battle, #33 Trent Seidel came in second and #2 Brian Sparks brought it home in third.

In heat race 2A #20 Neil “Fittzy” Fitzgerald showed some serious speed and got the victory, #44 Dean “the caveman” Braham rolled accross the line second and #41 Len Zimmer finished third. Heat 2B saw Brian Sparks in the #2 truck take the win over local racers Scott Lucas in the #54 and Trent Seidel in the #33.

The JB Water and Vacuum Service Super Truck Bobcat of Saskatoon Series “Kubota Earth Works 100” Feature Race was the main event of the evening. When the green flag dropped the field of trucks thundered to life and put on an awesome show of speed and power. The #99 of Doug Fischer held the pack at bay for most of the race but there was plenty of racing action throughout the fifteen truck field. The caution came out several times but when the racing resumed the #99 continued his dominant performance. With 19 laps to go the #99 of Doug Fischer suddenly had problems, slowed and went into the pits leaving the #20 Neil “Fittzy” Fitzgerald inherit the lead and eventually the win. #44 Dean “the caveman” Braham finished a strong second, #8 Grant Mills ended up third, #00 Kevin McLean took fourth and #33 Trent Seidel rounded out the top five. The mechanical difficulties for #99 Doug Fischer would drop him from second to third in the year end point standings.

Speaking of points standings #20 Neil Fitzgerald came out in top spot, #33 Jamie McClennon slid into second and #99 Doug Fischer dropped to third.


 

Not to be out gunned the Budget Car and Truck Rental Street Stock Division brought their A game. The action has been fierce all year in this class with plenty of hard racing and tonight was no exception. The first heat race saw several cars make contact bringing out an early caution and sending several cars to the pits, some needed tow truck assistance. Once the track was cleaned up and most of the cars got back out the race resumed with #3 Alex Leschenko getting the win, #80 Guy Derdall had a great run finishing second and #19 Aaron Anderson finished in third. The qualifier was also action packed, the #44 Craig Katelnikoff charged to the front and took the lead, holding on for the win. The race for second was a battle that saw #19 Aaron Anderson take the spot leaving #88 Brad Wrennick in third.

The Budget Car and Truck Rental Street Stock feature race was 40 more laps of action. Within the first several laps the #21 Mike Baht slide from the front row to the back of the pack with his heavily damaged car from the qualifier incident. It was apparent that he was having problems with the car when it began to smoke, on the back straight he spun on his own transmission fluid. When it came to rest the leaking fluid burst into flames, sending the track crews out to extinguish the blaze, Mike was able to safely climb from the car. When the race resumed so did the action, #28 Brennen Forseille broke out to sizable lead and it looked like he was going to hang on for the first feature win of his career. But with only 9 laps left the caution came out allowing the pack to get on his bumper. It was a typical short track shoot out and when the race was complete #93 Harold Edwards got the win, #19 Aaron Anderson held onto second place #28 Brennen Forseille settled for third, #44 Craig Katelnikoff brought it home in fourth and #88 Brad Wrennick finished in fifth place.

Once the points were added up #19 Aaron Anderson lead the way with a sizable lead, #62 Kenny Heintz had a great rookie season finishing in second with #34 Mike Schroeder hot on his tail in third.
 


 

The Cooper Tire Thunder Stocks put on another great show with a couple of cars back out after hard crashes earlier in the season. The first heat race saw long time member and former driver Al Bakke behind the wheel of the #49 junior racing program Thunder Stock as he took Darla Clark for the ride of her life. Up front #66 Brent Dupuis took the checkered flag first with #81 Curtis Houben in second while the #18 of Mike Rea brought it home in third. The qualifier saw more action the #18 of Mike Rea made contact with the #66 Brent Dupuis, the #81 Curtis Houben had nowhere to go and piled into them. Once the track was cleaned up and several cars made repairs the action continued, #66 Brent Dupuis charged from the back to the front and took another win, #22 Ryan Fredrickson had a great run coming in second with #88 Don Pogoda finishing third in his first event of the season.

The Cooper Tire Thunder Stock Feature Race was a caution free 40 lap event. The usual suspects battled for the top positions with #66 Brent Dupuis getting to the checkers first and completing his hat trick of race wins for the evening. # 81 Curtis Houben was second and #18 Mike Rea was third, #88 Don Pogoda finished fourth, “Pink” Floyd Ransom in the #7 rounded out the top five.

There was little question that #66 Brent Dupuis would come home with the points championship, #18 Mike Rea made a valiant effort but finished in second and #7 Floyd Ransom's consistency paid off with a third place overall.


 

The WSSL Auto Parts Super Late Model division capped their season of with a trio of exciting races. In the heat race #77 Greg Vangool captured the victory with #70 Trent Seidel close behind in second and #67 Ken Ross having a great run finishing third. The qualifier saw #56 Howard Crossman come home with the W, #55 Jim Gaunt finished right behind him in second and #14 Glen Hertzke brought it home third.

The WSSL Auto Parts Super Late Model Feature race was a 75 lap event with some added prize money on the line. WSSL Auto Parts put up $1000 for the win, $500 for second and $250 for third. They also brought some treats out for the fans and had the drivers handing out shirts and hats, in addition to a NASCAR jacket as an added 50/50 prize. I think some of the drivers got confused and thought they were racing in the SuperSeal 150 in Mobile Alabama for the $10,000 cheque and a chance to drive a Camping World Truck in the October 27th Martensville race. The action was vicious from the drop of the green flag, luckily they have seven months off to fix things. When the carnage was over the #99 of Doug Fischer (Super Truck driver doing double duty) survived to claim the checkered flag. #70 Trent Seidel finished second, #14 Glen Hertzke was third, #22 Doug Biena in fourth and #56 Howard Crossman rounded out the top five. In a gracious gesture Doug Fischer donated his $1000 winnings back to all of the clubs awesome volunteers and it was greatly appreciated.

#70 Trent Seidel claimed first in the points championship #14 Glen Hertzke moved up to second, #55 Jim Gaunts misfortune in the last feature race of the year left him in third overall.

Speaking of the SuperSeal 150, the Canadian-American challenge was held in Mobile Alabama on September 22nd and it sounded like an eventful night of racing. #6 Chris Skelton of Calgary Alberta won the SuperSeal 200 on September 1rst at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. This allowed him to get the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ride by finishing in the top three at the 150. If he failed to achieve a top three spot then the winner of the 150 got the $10,000 along with the once in a lifetime opportunity in the NCWTS. Race Time Radio put up a $500 bonus for the top qualifier of the event, #18 Hunter Robbins took that honor with a time of 17.002 . The top ten drivers drew for their starting spot and #29 Jeff Choquette got the pole. Lap two saw a multiple car pile up, #6 Chris Skelton was tangled up and that was the beginning of the end for him. He went a lap down on lap 46 and spun later in the race, he completed 78 laps and finished 17th. #29 Jeff Choquette won the event with #18 Hunter Robbins in second and #26 Bubba Pollard in third. Nine cars finished on the lead lap out of the 24 cars that took the green flag. I'm sure Ted Hubert and the SuperSeal Construction Products gang along with Herm Hordal and Rick Crawford are already planning an even bigger and better Canadian-American Challenge for 2013!
