Fireball Enduro brings 2012 Cornwall Motor Speedway season to an end


CORNWALL, Ont. - The Cornwall Motor Speedway had their annual Fireball Enduro, the ‘’WWE of racing!’”

More 300 cars were in the pits to participate in the different events involving 4, 6 and 8-cylinder type of cars.

The afternoon started with the 50-lap ladies event, Jodi Pynenburg was the fastest of 39 women’s and won her second feature in a row after winning in 2011.

The men`s 6-cylinders then took the track with 73 cars taking the initial green for 50 laps of mayhem. A few red flags slow the feature race as less than ten cars were able to complete the race, Patrick Taillon was the winner.

The first of two 50-lap 4-cylinder feature was next as 75 drivers took the initial green, this race was done rather quickly with no major incidents, Shane Hamel was the winner to this great race.

A field of 47 cars took green in the 50-lap 8-cylinder feature race. This event was tough on cars as only 10 of them finished the race. Former street stock regular, Jody Beckstead won the feature.
