Gray Closes the Points Gap at Grand Bend Speedway

 James Gray put on an impressive show at Grand Bend Speedway Saturday night, dominating the field once again. Gray took the lead on lap one of the feature race, and despite numerous attempts from Rob Neely to steal the lead, Gray held on for 30 laps to take the checkered flag. Gray and Neely battled throughout the feature, while Lucas Smith moved up through the pack to take third and defend his position for a podium finish. Daniel Bois and Todd Cresswell, both in the top three for the Championship points, rounded out the top five.
The last race of the 2008 Lucas Oil Can-Am midget racing season will be held at Flamboro Speedway Saturday, September 20, 2008. With the points being so close between the top three in points, the Championship will be determined by the outcome of the final race of the season, which promises to be an exciting night of open-wheel racing. The Lucas Oil Can-Am midget drivers would like to thank all of their fans for their continued support and welcome everyone to Flamboro Speedway for their final race of the 2008 season.

Cresswell comes from behind to Win TIM-BR Mart Series at Sauble Speedway

Top Ten in TIM-BR Mart points series

The points battle continued Saturday night as the 2008 Lucas Oil Can-Am midget Championship contenders, Daniel Bois and James Gray, battled for first position in the feature race. Gray took first from Bois on lap 17 and never looked back as he pulled away from the pack, dominating the field. Bois held onto second position, while Greg Smulders finished third, giving fans a familiar podium finish. Jared Turnbull took fourth, while Darren McLennan rounded out the top five, continuing their late season charges. Todd Cresswell, who is currently third in the Championship points, had an unfortunate break-down that did not allow him to finish the race, giving other drivers an opportunity to close the points gap between third and fifth in the Championship points battle.
Richard Boake and David Balych were having an impressive run as they battled for the lead, until they got tangled in corner one, taking them out of contention for the win, allowing Gray and Bois to move up to the front of the field. Gray and Bois ran side-by-side for three laps, showing a great level of respect and sportsmanship as they battled for the win.

 Sunday night was the sixth and final night of racing for the TIM-BR Mart Sauble points race.
James Gray was a mere two points ahead of Daniel Bois going into the race, with Todd Cresswell not far behind. The race was off to a devastating start for Gray as both he and Greg Smulders were involved in an unfortunate incident on lap one, forcing both drivers to pull off of the track. When the race resumed, Richard Boake continued to defend first position until lap 22, when Todd Cresswell flew past Boake to take the lead, giving him the extra push he needed to not only take the win, but also take home first place in the Sauble TIM-BR Mart points. Motor problems were evident as Championship points leader, Bois, limped the car home for a thirteenth place finish, allowing him to finish second in the TIM-BR Mart points, only a few points behind Cresswell. Boake finished on the podium, while Corey Moesker and David Balych, who both had impressive runs, finished out the top five.

DON ADAMS WINS TQ 'OPEN' RACE

The Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets hosted an "Open Invitational' race Sunday night at Flamboro Speedway (Ont, Canada) and the winner was Don Adams from Robbinsville, New Jersey. Driving the Spitfire Racing TQ #26, owned by Colin Martin, Adams took the lead on lap 2, lapping half the field before the green to checkered finish.
Zack Martini, driving for ATQMRA President Blu Metz finished second and Rookie Mackie DeMan driving for Lucas Oil Can-Am Midget owner Craig Mackereth finished third.

This "Open Invitational" was an attempt to bring together different TQ Midget groups for a fun event, no points, "let's work together" attitude. Along with the host Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets and the ATQMRA club there were a number of cars from the Lancaster/Casey's series from Western New York.

Can-Am President Ken Lorenz said "I am very pleased with the turnout, it went better than expected. We are already having talks with the other groups to make this an annual event. Green to checkered with a varity of different midgets was exciting for the fans to watch. The top ten finishers were an even mix of Can-Am cars and the visitors. You couldn't ask for anything better than that."

Heat #1 was won by Adams and Heat #2 was taken by Rookie, 17 year old, Alison Cumens from Doylestown, PA, with the ATQMRA. The "B" Feature was won by David Balych of the Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets.

Canadian TQ Midget Twin 25s at Barrie Speedway

Saturday night was sure to be an exciting night as the Lucas Oil Can-Am midgets ran the Canadian TQ Midget Championship with twin 25s at Barrie Speedway. Darren McLennan had an impressive run as he held off veteran and defending champion, Todd Cresswell, and current championship points leader, Daniel Bois, to take his very first Lucas Oil Can-Am midget feature win.
Rookie Mack DeMann had a strong run, finishing fourth, while Tyler Mackereth rounded out the top five. On lap 14, James Gray, who is currently second in the championship points, was running top five when he had to pull off of the track due to of motor problems, not allowing him the finish the race. In the same lap, Rob Neely, who was running in second position, also had to pull off the track when his motor expired. McLennan's win was a great victory for his team, giving him an opportunity to turn his season around. After struggling earlier this year, McLennan will now be able to finish the season strong and gain some points in the 2008 Lucas Oil Can-Am midget season.

Feature #1

Todd Cresswell 2nd, Darren Mclennan 1st, Daniel Bois 3rd

Only hours after their first feature of the night, the Lucas Oil Can-Am midget drivers suited up again for their second 25-lap feature of the night. Jared Turnbull took first early in the race, and defended it until lap 15 when Tyler Mackereth made a pass to take the lead. Daniel Bois, who was sitting in second, defended his position from Todd Cresswell, who had come from seventh position to finish on the podium. Rob Neely and James Gray were both able to do a quick motor change between the two features, allowing them to start the race. Neely and Gray started at the back end of the pack and came up through the field quickly, rounding out the top five. This Saturday was Mackereth's last race of the 2008 season with the Lucas Oil Can-Am midgets and it was wonderful for him to be able to finish the season on such a high note.

Flamboro Race rescheduled as an "Open Invitational"

The Can-Am Club is organizing an 'Open Invitational' race at Flamboro Speedway on Sunday, August 24th with the Grisdale Championship sponsored by Lucas Oil to be scheduled for that date.

We are inviting all of you as well as the Lancaster Midgets and Casey's Midgets to have a fun evening. We will allow anyone to try anything...750 fuel injected, 600 fuel injected, flat slides on Super Stocks or New Gen, wing or no wing, tire combinations, etc... just No V-8's!!

Because this was our scheduled weekend off and a lot of you have already made plans, the Board thought this would be the fairest way to do this. We could also have a lot of fun.

This will be a good opportunity to try out new ideas without jeopardizing the points series.

Please e-mail Ken & Cindy Lorenz if you plan on coming


Clean Sweep for Walsh at Sauble Speedway

Adam Walsh had a great weekend at Sauble Speedway, winning both feature races Saturday and Sunday night. Running only a partial season, as he lives in British Columbia, Walsh took first position on lap three Saturday night and held on to it for the win. Wayne Turnbull, who was running the 6 car of Roger Riberdy, was sitting in second position early in the race, when he had an unfortunate oil spill which took him out of the race. Due to this event, it made it difficult for the rest of the field to remain in control, however, the Lucas Oil Can-Am midget drivers displayed their skill and car control when they managed to avoid a wreck with oil on the track. Jody Bound, who was driving the 5 car for an injured Larry Wilson, lost his motor when it expired under caution, leaving 20 cars to take the checkered. Tyler Mackereth and Rob Neely battled for second and third, while Daniel Bois and Todd Cresswell rounded out the top five.

Sunday night ran green to checkered, as the Lucas Oil Can-Am midgets put on another great show for the fans. Walsh took the lead early in the race and defended his position for the win. Walsh, Cresswell and Bois were flying as they began lapping the field at Sauble Speedway. David Balych, who has run only a handful of races this season, had an impressive run, finishing fourth, just behind the Lucas Oil Can-Am midget Championship points leader, Daniel Bois. Fans were pleased to see Paul Smith come out for the weekend at Sauble Speedway. Smith was involved in the huge wreck at Peterborough Speedway back in May, but proved that hard work and dedication does pay off when he finished in the top five Sunday night.
