The second round of the 2013 Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship hit the track this past weekend at Flamboro Speedway as 110 kart racers fought intense heat and humidity and plenty of hot competition. After a dismal start to the BSRKC season at Sutton for round one, the added competition from the Waterloo Regional Kart Club was a nice addition creating plenty of awesome racing at the track just west of Hamilton, Ontario.
Here is a quick recap of the Senior classes.
Scotty Nagel Cruises in Senior Lite Final
Two friends that have raced against each other for their entire karting careers lined up on the front row for the Senior Lite Final as Brandon Hauck and Scotty Nagel led the field of 18 to the green flag.
Utilizing his pole-position, Hauck moved into the early lead with Nagel slotting into second and Darren Dryden third. Leading as they crossed the stripe for the first time, Hauck would surrender the lead to Nagel in corner one. From there, Hauck did all he could to keep up, but Nagel’s pace was just too much as he began to pull away. Battling for third, Dryden was holding off Dominique Smith for as long as he could, eventually losing the position on lap ten. The front three held station from there on, with Nagel cruising to victory ahead of Hauck and Adam Racine, who started last after a DNG in the Pre Final. Smith and Dryden completed the top-five.
TJ Marshall holds on for Senior Heavy Victory
Although TJ Marshall led every lap of the Senior Heavy Final at Flamboro, the race came right down to the wire. Marshall held off a steady challenge from Tristan Gill as well as a charging David Miller to take the victory. Marshall has been a front runner at WRKC since he began karting nearly ten years ago and this victory is just another to his impressive resume at Flamboro Speedway. Gill would cross in second only 0.1 seconds behind with Miller third. Jonathan Treadwell and Alex DiFrangia rounded the top-five.
Masters Victory for Jerrid Morphy
Very similar to TJ Marshalls victory, Jerrid Morphy led flag-to-flag in the Masters division to take victory in the Final. But Morphy had to be perfect as Brian Wilkinson and Rich Mizener were waiting on the leaders bumper for a majority of the race, just waiting for their change to make a move. A late race battle for second would allow Morphy to get away and score the win with Wilkinson taking second ahead Mizener at the stripe.
Brett Rickeard Wins in TaG Senior
The only two-stroke class to compete on the weekend saw Brett Rickeard take the checkers. With only four karts in the race, the entertainment was very minimal with Rickeard checking out early and driving away to victory. Brandon Lowry raced to second place while Jazmin Webster finished third.
The third round of the 2013 Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship hits the track in two weeks as the series shifts to Point Pelee Karting in Leamington, Ontario on July 6-7. The crew in Leamington always put on a great show for their out of town guests, making this an event not to miss.
