Raabe Notches Second Brockville 358 Modified Win

BROCKVILLE, Ontario – Chris Raabe earned his second win of the season in DIRTcar 358 action at Brockville Ontario Speedway.

Joe Banks paced the field at the start of the 30 lap event over Kalen Draper and Madison Mulder. Lee Ladouceur moved to the front quickly and closed in on Banks for the lead. Heading into turn 3 Banks lost control of his car after slight contact from Ladouceur sent him spinning.

On the restart Ladouceur charged to the lead and was flying around the top side. Meanwhile Chris Raabe was on the move as he took second from Chris Herbison on lap 15.

Ladouceur continued his run around the outside lane, but Raabe was able to close the gap as the top two pulled away from the field.

On lap 28 Raabe made the winning move in turn 2, taking the lead on the inside lane. From there Chris Raabe made it look easy as he claimed win number two of the season. Ladouceur held on for 2nd while Quebec invader Steve Bernier came from the back of the field to finish third.

Domonick Merkley had struggled since getting into the DIRTcar Sportsman division but on this night, he would take the victory to earn his first career win in the division. 

Ryan Poole was the dominant force in the 1000 Islands RV Crate Sprint car feature. 

The 12 lap Novice Sportsman feature saw a thrilling finish between father and son Sandy and Gavin MacFarlane. On the final lap Sandy would pull even with Gavin, but on this night the kid got there first, as Gavin MacFarlane scored his second win of the season. 

The Supernant Truck Shop Mini Stock division saw Hayden Brown lead the way to the win.

The 20-lap vintage feature took a few restarts to get going, but once the laps clicked off it was former DIRTcar 358 Modfied and DIRTcar Sportsman driver Jason Riddell taking the win.
