It seems Gary McLean has everything working the way he wanted as he picked up his fourth straight victory on Saturday night at the Chase for the Colours at Peterborough Speedway.
A.J. Emms won the first heat ahead of McLean, Chris Milwain, Gary Elliott, Luke Gignac and Dale Reinhart.
Cory Horner won the second heat ahead of Brad Stevenson, John Baker Jr., John Harper, Rob Di Venanzo and Dan Price.
John Harper won the third heat ahead of Baker Jr., Emms, Elliott, Di Venanzo and Reinhart.
Luke Gignac won the fourth heat ahead of McLean, Stevenson, Horner, Price and Milwain.
The feature saw Brad Stevenson and Gary McLean lead the field to the green flag for their 30-lap feature. Stevenson led the early couple of laps, however McLean was able to get by just before a caution at Lap 17. McLean then led the rest of the way en route to picking up the victory.
A.J. Emms made his way by Stevenson on a late-race restart to finish second, marking his fourth top-five of the season. Stevenson finished third, followed by Horner and Harper. The top-five finishes for both Horner and Harper were welcoming, following issues the previous week at Delaware Speedway during the heat races.
Chris Milwain finished sixth for his fourth top-10, followed by Price, Gignac, Baker Jr., Elliott and Reinhart. Unfortunately, Rob Di Venanzo finished 12th after catching his right front on the base of the backstretch wall, flipping over and sliding on the car’s roof along the track. Thankfully, Di Venanzo was not injured in the accident.
The OSCAAR Modified drivers will now focus their attention to Flamboro Speedway this weekend.
