RAINED OUT – Full Card and a Demolition on Tap at Oyster Bed Monday
After the final Saturday night of racing, Oyster Bed Speedway will begin its late season matinees to round out the 2014 racing season.
First up is the annual Smash and Crash Labour Day Demolition Derby.
The always-entertaining finale to Monday’s race will feature drivers smashing and crashing into each other in the attempt to render their opponent’s vehicle un-drivable. The 2 p.m. race card will also feature all four classes of racing.
After another solid night last Saturday, Street Stock Division Leader Mark MacLean solidified his place at the top of the pack.
After a win and a second-place finish to open up his night, MacLean followed it up with a feature win.
If he continues at this pace, the Street Stock Championship just may be MacLean’s with only three official race dates left on the schedule.
Nick Chaisson, who is toiling in third, was able to snag a win on the night while the division’s second-place driver Alex Sheehan eked out two thirds and a second.
Defending Late Model Champion Kris Fournier is beginning to close the gap between himself and leader Robbie MacEwen.
Fournier will have his work cut out for him as MacEwen seldom had any off nights and has led the points since early June. This past Saturday, though, MacEwen had a rare last-place finish but rebounded with a pair of podium finishes.
There is no closer division that the Outlaw Division. Both Tyler MacLean and Kendall Palmer have swapped the division lead many times already this season, and that doesn’t appear to change anytime soon. The difference in points is in the single digits, and currently MacLean is on top after both drivers enjoyed wins last time out.
For the first time since the middle of June there is a new leader in the Mini-Four Fun division.
Charles Woolaver has been steadily chipping away at Tyler Smith’s division lead. Smith had a disastrous night when he was forced to retire from his opening race and was unable to return for the rest of the night. Woolaver capitalized by scoring a pair of second place finishes.
Jason Baglole continues his unbelievable push to the top of the standings.
On June 28, the driver was in 10th place after tech violations set him back. After making the necessary adjustments, Baglole has been on a torrid pace scoring his 11th heat win of the season plus his ninth feature win, leapfrogging him into third in points.
While highly unlikely, it is still possible ‑ under the right circumstances ‑ for the division veteran to grab the championship.
Racing gets under way at 2 pm.
