ECKC: Flag to Flag Victory for Jon Treadwell in Briggs & Stratton Senior

Race #3 for the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship hit the track of a packed house at Goodwood Kartways on Saturday. A race day full of action wreaked havoc on many competitors, opening the top of the podium for some new drivers, while others continued to dominate.

It is quite impressing to see the Briggs & Stratton Senior class continue to grow. Even with many drivers who raced at Mosport not in attendance, there was still a full 30 drivers on grid for Saturday’s race with all kinds of exciting four-cycle action on display.

Jean-Francois Lafontaine (KMS/Birel) was the fastest in Qualifying as the top fifteen weren’t separated by much. He also cruised to an easy win in the prefinal, but he failed post-race tech and was forced to start the Final from the rear, moving Jon Treadwell (Venom Racing Solutions/K&K Kart) to the pole-position for the Final with Simon Belanger (SH Racing/FA Kart) beside him.

Treadwell got away nicely at the start of the Final as drivers jockeyed for position behind. Chad Campbell (GP Kart) and Belanger ultimately moved into the second and third spots with all kinds of mayhem behind them.

Up front, Treadwell went untouched, even with a late race charge from Campbell and Belanger, to his second win of the season with the front three holding their positions at the finish line. Completing the top-five we Michael Glaze (DMR/FA Kart) and Frank Launi (GP Kart).
