Grant Wessley dominates at Canadaguia

Sunday night, Canandaigua Speedway was the site of the 2nd race of the season for the Slidin’ Dirty Super Late Model Tour. The drivers and teams made the tow up to Canandaigua, New York for the It’s Canandaigua not Canada 50 Lap Feature.

Phil LaCasse Jr. would draw the #1 slot and be on the pole position for Heat Race #1. Newcomer to the series Jeremy Jeffries would start along side in the 2nd position. Phil would have steering issues right at the start of the race and would have to head to the pits. Hopefully he would be able to get his car fixed in time for the feature. Michael Marotta would quickly grab the lead from his 3rd starting spot and go on to win Heat Race #1 and his 2nd Heat Race win of the season.

Heat Race #2 would see John Wall drawing that #1 spot and the pole position. Brian Hoag would be starting to his outside in the 2nd position. Once again it would be all John Wall as he would cruise to the victory and his 2nd Heat Race win of the season.

After getting stuck in traffic David Day would finally make it to the track just in time for the Feature. He would have to start at the tail of the field after not being able to run a Heat Race.

One driver would have the luck of the draw and after the Redraw Philip Parker would see himself sitting on the pole for the Feature event. Brian Hoag would draw the #2 starting position and line up outside of Row #1.At the drop of the Green Flag Brian Hoag would quickly jump out to the lead. He would lead the first 12 laps before, another new comer to the series, Grant Wessley would drive by to the inside to take the lead. Despite a few cautions flags including a late race restart and the challenges from several of the other drivers Grant would hold on to claim the Checkered lag and his first Feature win of the season. David Day would come from his 12th starting spot to finish the race in 2nd.
