WEEDSPORT, N.Y. — The Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds will be making their way back to Canada this Saturday, Oct. 15th for the 8th Annual 1000 Islands RV DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals at Brockville Ontario Speedway in Ontario, Canada.
Last year’s Fall Nationals at Brockville Ontario Speedway saw Carey Terrance take the victory in the St. Lawrence Radiology/ Traditional Lacrosse No. 66x machine.
Terrance passed Gary Tomkins for the lead while running on the high side on lap 72. The pair raced a few feet apart for several laps with Danny Johnson, fast-rising Matt Sheppard and Chris Raabe in close pursuit.
“I was trying to get around some holes out there and I went all the way up to the top and found a line that worked great,” Terrance said. “The car was tight early, but it got rolling later.”
“The track was very racy,” Tomkins said. “You could pass in different places. I ran the softest tire and the thing took right off. It was a rocket ship.”
On the seventh and final restart with eight laps to go, Terrance drew away from his pursuers and won handily while Raabe mounted a late charge to finish third behind Tomkins after jousting with Johnson in fourth. Sheppard rose to fifth after flipping his modified early in the night during his heat race.
Terrance is currently coming off of a strong week after accomplishing his best ever finish at Super DIRT Week in a Big Block Modified. He locked himself into the Bud Light 200 at Oswego Speedway early by timing himself into the top six in time trials and then finishing the 200 with a top three finish.
