Day and Banks back in top five at BOS

 

There was another fantastic night of racing at the BOS this past Saturday night with six features on the card and top five finishes by Joe Banks and Ron Day.
In 358 Modified action Luke Stewart took the top spot away at the drop of the green flag as Portland’s Joe Banks, Ryan Arbuthnot, Bobby Herrington and Jordan McCreadie rounded out the top five. Stewart quickly raced out to a straight away advantage over the rest of the field as Banks and Arbuthnot battled in the top three.
On lap 21 Danny O’Brien was able to take the top spot away with Stewart, Herrington, Banks and Arbuthnot completing the top five. Without the aid of a caution flag during the final nine laps of the event the rest of the field had little chance of stopping the 10 time track champion as he cruised on to claim his second feature win of the season over Stewart who finished a career best second. Herrington was third with Banks and opening day winner Stephane Lafrance rounding out the top five. 
In Rookie action the race began with a red flag for Josh Kirkland as he took a bad flip in turn two. Kirkland would climb out of the car unhurt but his car was done for the night. Once the green came out Adam Trickey was the driver to beat as he led the opening three laps over Quincy Roberts, Lyndhurst’s Ron Day, Ryan Comeau and Michael Dillon. Trickey was not able to fend off defending track champion Quincy Roberts who would regain command of the field and cruise on to another victory as Jamie Truelove charged from the back of the field to finish 2nd. Trickey came home third followed by Day and Chris James. Portland’s Chris Bakker was seventh. 
Twenty-two Street Stocks were set to go for 15 laps and Brett Horner was the driver to beat in the early stages of the event as he took the lead with Troy Sharp, Travis Andrews, Selena Simzer and Kevin Fetterly Jr. completed the top 5. In the end Horner prevailed claiming the win over Fetterly, Todd Raabe, Troy Sharp and Travis Andrews.
Behind the top five, a multi-car accident occured involving Mike Broadbent and Portland’s Barry Baker as Baker nearly flipped in turn after hard contact. All drivers would be okay..
In the Sportsman race, Dylan Evoy claimed his third win in five Sportsman races at Brockville. Jon Mills settled for second followed by Shane Pecore, Jason Shipclark and Wednesday night winner Steve Barber.
This Saturday night all five divisions will be back for a full program of racing including the ever popular kids tire race. The first green flag drops at 7 p.m.
