There was a four man battle for the drivers’ championship for the last half of the 2022 season, and when the Can-Am Midgets went into the last race at the end of September at Flamboro Speedway. One of those was the 2021 Qwick Wick Can-Am Midget series presented by Miller Office Trailers champion Jeff Blackburn. Blackburn was back in the bright #7 car to defend his title this year.
Blackburn was out to show people he was out to defend his title. Other than a slow start in the first coupe of races, Jeff finished in the top 5 in every race he finished. The #7 crew was able dial in this car every night to secure, 11 top 5 finishes, 8 podiums, 4 heat wins, and 5 feature wins!
There was a very drama-filled last race at Flamboro Speedway ending Backburn’s hopes for a back-to-back championship, but Jeff and the #7 car will be back in 2023 to battle again. We hope the next championship title battle will be just as close as this one!
