CORNWALL, Ont. - The greatest show on DIRT was in town tonight as the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series was at Cornwall Motor Speedway on Twinleaf Stores as the Lightning Sprints were also at the speedway along with the Modified and Sportsman.
Kerry Madsen led the way in the 40-lap World of Outlaws Sprint Car feature as Donny Schatz and Paul McMahan were behind the leader. Madsen quickly got to the slower cars as Cody Darrah slowed the field down stopping in turn 4 on lap 6. Madsen to the lead as Schatz was pushing hard behind him, Schatz used the inside lane to pass Madsen on lap 10. April Wilson stopped in turn 4 and yellow was out on lap 14. Schatz built himself a good lead over Madsen as the feature got to the halfway point. Schatz still the leader and in heavy traffic as David Gravel made his way to third. A final caution occurred with 1 lap to go for Kyle Fraser. Schatz led the way and won his 11th feature of the season on the tour over Madsen and Logan Schuhart who surprised David Gravel on that final restart.
Gabriel Richer led the way in the 30-lap Jiffy Auto Service Modified Series as Chris Herbison was behind him. Herbison used the high lane to pass Richer on lap 5 as Carey Terrance was running strong in third. Terrance used the same lane to pass Richer for second on lap 8. Terrance was on the back bumper of Herbison with Chris Raabe now running in third. Herbison and Terrance raced side by side with only 10 laps to go. Terrance took over the lead on lap 21 as Raabe was now close to the leaders. Raabe found a nice groove on the top but a lap car slowed him down and Terrance went on to win his third event of the season.
