O’Blenis Answers Last Call, Wins Coors Light 125

Dave O’Blenis is back atop the Sportsman world in New Brunswick.

O’Blenis took the lead within the first 20 laps of the Coors Light Sportsman 125 on Saturday night at Speedway Miramichi and held it to the finish of the event, holding off Lonnie Sommerville on a restart with ten laps to go to seal the deal.

Three cautions slowed the event on Lap 1, 80 and 115. The blistering pace saw only two cars on the lead lap at the end of the race with Remi Gaudet falling off the lead lap after hard contact with Nathan Ellis ended his night ten laps shy of the finish.

Sarah McKay recorded her first podium finish of her young career by coming home in third.

Gaudet and hometown favorite Brady Creamer took qualifying victories. Creamer went to the back of the field on a challenge from Speedway Miramichi owner Jason Carnahan with $20 on the line for every car he passed. Fifteen cars started the 125 lap event.

Complete results for the Coors Light 125 were unavailable at the time of posting.

Brad McLean took a very competitive Street Stock 75 in one of the most exciting races on the night. Alexandra O’Blenis was second, followed closely by Ken MacKenzie Jr., who said in victory lane that he had to use “the guns” after losing power steering in the opening laps of the race.

James Matchett (Eastern Super Mini Cup), Larry Gulliver (Atlantic Open Wheel Modified Tour), Mike Weagle (Mini Stock) and Drew Greenlaw (Bandolero) all recorded victories in the undercard events.
