“REGULAR” SEASON FINALEFriday - September - 2016
by Tommy Goudge (September 2, 2016) – Caistor Centre, Ontario – The Team Turner Racing Sprint Car drivers had strong cars last Friday at Ohsweken Speedway. They’re set to conclude their “regular” season on Friday with Ohsweken’s Season Championship Night.
Jamie Turner and sons Cory and Ryan went to Ohsweken last Friday in search of valuable points toward the 2016 championship chase. They also hosted their annual TTR Corn Roast after the races.
Ryan survived a broken front wing to finish his heat race in 5th, while Cory won his heat race, and Jamie finished 3rd in his.
Cory drew the pole position for the A-Feature and led more than half the race before settling for another runner-up finish with the Hill’s Racing #97.
“We won our heat, and Nate pulled us the number one pill for the A,” Cory noted. “We had a real strong run in the A, and a strong racer all night. I can’t thank Hill’s Racing and my crew enough for giving me such a fast sprinter.”
Jamie started 7th in the A-Feature and ran close to the top five before coming home with a 6th place finish in his #11 Insta-Panels car.
“Thanks to Malabar Super Spice, Springer’s Meats, and Jerome Bros. Farm Market for supplying us with the great food for our annual TTR Corn Roast,” said Jamie. “We also thank everyone that joined us for a great time!”
Ryan started 14th in the A-Feature, and was on the move until a broken Jacobs Ladder and right rear radius rod derailed his night. His Aces Bar & Grill #91 was credited with an 18th place finish.
“I felt like it was just one of those racing nights that we had a lot go wrong,” Ryan reflected. “Although, on the bright side we didn’t lose a car or an engine. We’re going to go home fix it, and come out flying next week.”
Along with Ohsweken’s Season Championship on Friday, the Team Turner drivers will be in action elsewhere on Labour Day weekend. They will announce their plans for the rest of the weekend on their Twitter account.
