MILLGROVE, Ontario --- This past Saturday afternoon, the stars of the Super Stocks, Mini Stocks, and Pure Stocks gathered together, socially distanced of course, to put on a show. In the end, it was some of the division’s strongest drivers gracing victory lane with Ken Grubb, Karl Sault, and Kris Khan holding the checkered flag.

Super Stocks

Gerrit Tiemersma laid down the quickest time in qualifying with a lap of 16.546 seconds ahead of Jordan Latimer (16.551), Ken Grubb (16.631), Ethan Constable (16.657), and Jake Zevenbergen (16.662). Rick Verberne qualified sixth, followed by Andrew Ferreira, Cory McAllister, Coltin Everingham, and Marvin Freiburger.

Brad Collison was 11th, followed by Roy Wilkie, Steve Cashmore, Dennis Cybalski, Paul Boundy, Paul Pepper, Tim Burke, Tyler Bouillon, Bill Brekelmans, and Rob Richards. Matt Young and Victor Vowles rounded out the field.

The invert would be six, putting Verberne and Zevenbergen on the front row. Verberne took full advantage of his starting spot, grabbing the early lead ahead of Constable, Grubb, Zevenbergen, Tiemersma, and Ferreira, while Vowles pulled into the infield on Lap 9 with overheating issues.

Grubb continued his climb forward, getting alongside Constable for second at Lap 11, with Tiemersma alongside Zevenbergen a lap later for fourth. Grubb moved into second on Lap 13 ahead of Constable, Tiemersma, and Zevenbergen.

Grubb would track down Verberne for the lead, getting alongside him for the top spot on Lap 17, taking the top spot a lap later. Constable continued to run third ahead of Tiemersma and Zevenbergen.

The race appeared to have a green flag appearance as the laps continued to count down, but that wouldn’t be the case. The first caution came out on Lap 28 for Latimer slowing with a mechanical issue. Boundy then pulled into the infield with overheating issues under the yellow flag.

Grubb got a good restart, holding off the challenge from Verberne, while McAllister would slow and pull into the infield with a mechanical issue. The race would also head back under the yellow flag, with Collison going around heading into turn one on Lap 31 courtesy of contact from Wilkie.

Despite a little bump from Verberne middle of the corner, Grubb was able to hold off the challenge once again for the lead, with Constable remaining third ahead of Zevenbergen and Tiemersma. Gallant would head pit side with motor problems on Lap 35, with Cybalski getting sideways through turns one and two – but managing to save it a lap later.

Tiemersma would get alongside Zevenbergen for fourth on Lap 37, getting the spot and bringing Pepper through with him a lap later. However, the caution would come out once again as a result of an incident in turns three and four involving Collison, Cybalski, Burke, and Bouillon.

Another bump from Verberne, and another good restart for Grubb as he held off the challenge again with Constable in third. Zevenbergen and Tiemersma resumed their battle for fourth, with Zevenbergen getting the spot on Lap 41, bringing Wilkie, Everingham, and Pepper through with him. Ferriera’s strong run came to an end on Lap 43 with him going around in turns three and four, with the caution coming out two laps later due to him stalled at the bottom of the track.

Ken Grubb got a good restart, holding off another challenge to score the victory, followed by Rick Verberne, Ethan Constable, Roy Wilkie, and Paul Pepper. Coltin Everingham finished sixth, followed by Steve Cashmore, Marvin Freiburger, Gerrit Tiemersma, Jake Zevenbergen.

Connor Maltese, Rob Harrison, Stan Cook, and Peter Wakeling rounded out the field.

Meanwhile, Sault’s quick ascend through the field would see him leading by Lap 6 ahead of Steckly, Gibbons, Andy Kamrath, and Pendlebury, as Wilson ran into problems. Steckly got alongside Gibbons for second a couple laps later, taking the spot, with Kamrath remaining fourth ahead of Pendlebury.

Steckly would find his way to the lead, taking the top spot on Lap 11, with Sault and Gibbons side-by-side for second ahead of Andy Kamrath and Pendlebury as Istead ran into problems. Sault held off the challenge, remaining in second ahead of Gibbons, Kamrath, and Pendlebury.

The mechanical gremlins really would bite a lot of drivers through the second half of the event, as Steckly pulled off the track out of the lead on Lap 19 with overheating issues. Gould headed to the infield shortly thereafter, with Watson going pit side in the final 10 laps.

At the front of the field, it was Karl Sault the rest of the way en route to the checkered flag. Will Gibbons was all over his bumper through the final five laps, but was unable to find a way by en route to finishing second. Andy Kamrath was third, followed by  Chris Pendlebury, and Tommy Robb. Craig Kamrath finished sixth, followed by Mike Brown, Shawn Taylor, Chandler Bos, and Jason D’Antimo.

Following qualifying, a couple cars ran into issues with Lawrence, Lucas, Wilman, Steve DeLeeuw, and Scott all starting scratch on the field.

The invert would be eight, putting Jordan Lawrence and Arrand on the front row. Arrand jumped out to the early lead, with Khan alongside Lawrence for second. Meanwhile, Ramsay slowed with an issue on the third lap. Khan took over second on Lap 5 ahead of Rockwood, Neumeister, and Hils.

The shuffling up front would happen quickly, with Rockwood out front in control ahead of his teammate Wheller on Lap 8, with Khan and Neumeister side-by-side for third. Neumeister took the spot a lap later ahead of Khan and Hils.

Neumeister continued to move forward, passing Wheller for second on Lap 17, bringing Khan, Hils, Givens, and Finnegan through with him as Wheller slowed with an issue, heading pit side. Neumeister would challenge Rockwood for the top spot two laps later, but was unable to clear him for the pass.

The pair would get back side-by-side for the top spot once again on Lap 24, but the caution would come out due to Scott losing a wheel off of turn four.  The return to green flag action would be short lived with the second caution on Lap 27 for Finnegan losing a wheel.

Neumeister got away on the restart, allowing Khan to get alongside Rockwood for second ahead of Hils, Givens, and Mercer. Khan got the spot on Lap 29, with Hils following suit to take third. The caution came back out, though, this time on Lap 31 for Couture stalling.

The restart saw a battle for the lead between Neumeister and Khan, with Neumeister holding serve once again. Neumeister then led the final nine laps en route to crossing the checkered in first.

Following the event in post-race technical inspection, though, Kyle Neumeister was disqualified for the win under a technical infraction. As a result, Kris Khan would be scored as your race winner ahead of Gillian Hils, David Rockwood, Phil Givens, and Jordan Lawrence.
