Track Release

Cole battled with Brodie MacQuarrie (#28) for the lead in the early laps but pulled away from the field on a 55-lap run to the end to earn the big win – the first extended distance win of his career at Speedway 660 – and make himself an early favorite for the upcoming Ricky Bobby 150.

After technical inspection, a pair of drivers who made the long trip to Geary after competing at Riverside International Speedway in Antigonish Saturday rounded out the podium – former winner of the Targett’s Windows and Doors 100 Michael Cormier (#68) came home second, while former track champion Riley Goodwin (#77) would be scored third. Andrew Rodgers, subbing for Rick Cashol (#54), finished fourth while Darcy O’Neill (#68x) rounded out the top five.

O’Blenis led wire to wire to pick up the win. While O’Blenis drove off into the sunset, it was a tense battle for second all race long that saw Hudson Weston (#43) emerge in the runner-up spot, earning his first career podium finish by outdueling veteran Kevin Moore (#88). Clark Moore (#54) rallied to finish fourth, while Ian Rasmussen (#81) came home fifth after he and Weston battled for second during the first half of the race.
