Maritimers are coming back with two INEX Winter Nationals championships.
Braden Langille completed a clean sweep of the Bandolero Outlaw class on Friday by winning the final 20-lap main feature of the week at Orlando Speedworld. Langille, a three year veteran of the event in the top Bandolero class, topped a field of eight cars in the final race, including Luke Ettinger of Kennetcook, who came home in fifth place.
Nathan Langille, aka Pumpkin Jack, came home as the winner in the Beginner Bandits class on Friday, winning his third feature in five races. Combined with two second place finishes, he took home the overall championship for the week. Owen Mahar was second on Friday and unofficially took second place in the overall point standings for the week.
The Bandits division saw Josh Langille coming home in fifth on Friday, Austin MacDonald in 12th and Danny Chisholm in 14th in the final feature of the week. Their race was won by DJ Canipe.
The Semi Pro Legends divisions wrapped up their Winter Nationals event with Christian Eckes taking home the victory. Behind Eckes was Nicholas Naugle in fifth, Cory Hall in sixth, Nick Ledson in 11th, Jarrett Butcher in 14th, Dylan Rumbolt 22nd and Will Farrell 23rd.
Ontario’s Cole Ledson was ninth in the Young Lions Legends feature, besting Newfoundland’s Waylon Farrell in 10th. The final feature of the week was won by Alex Reece.
The ageless Gary Bursey of Moncton, New Brunswick finished off the week in the Masters Legends division in eleventh place. Tim Brockhouse was the winner of the final feature event of the week.
Cole Butcher wrapped the week in seventh place in the final Pro Legends feature of INEX Winter Nationals.
We will have a complete wrap up, including point standings for the week, next week on TimsCorner.ca.
