SCoNE returned to Legion Speedway for the final O'Reilly Auto Parts Twilight Racing Challenge of the season this Sunday. No. 28 Rick Martel shot ahead on the green, and was working on lapping the field when a car spun in front of him. He managed to shut it down and avoid hitting the other car, but went to the rear for being involved in the caution. The rest of the race went caution-free. Clay Dow was the winner in the 58, Chris Donnelly finished second in the 17, and Dan Douville took home a hard-earned third place trophy in his no. 7x.
Chris Donnelly was also the winner of the Mike's Automotive Sportsman Modified feature in the 20c car. 01 Ryan Avery went into the night with a one point lead over Gary Siemons and solidified his title of champion with a second place finish. Chad Turck started third in points, and had the possibility to jump into second or slide back to fourth. It turned out to be a rough night for the driver of the 56, as he had some help getting into the back stretch wall during qualifying and couldn’t seem to find any bite on the slick track during the main event. Kevin Chaffee finished third in the 73 after working his way from the rear of the field.

No. 55 Derek O'Hearn was the winner and points champion of the Peanuts Automotive Super Streets. After a hard hit last week, no. 4 Wade Prentice returned Sunday with a borrowed car that was offered up by the driver of the 5x, Ronnie Bryson. It proved to be a rough night for the super streets, and after being intentionally spun on the front stretch, Prentice chose to stay in the pits rather than risk damage to Bryson's car. Even with last place points, it was enough to maintain second place in the season points. Robbie Williams finished second in the 7w after losing the lead to O'Hearn on a restart and Matt Lashua finished third in the 18. The was only one Bond Auto Parts Pure Stock in the race, 77 Ryan Ovitt. He has been a very loyal racer, at the track week after week supporting the new division and racing hard. He is this year's points champion and won almost every feature race, with some excellent finishes with the super streets as well.

Some drivers in the Enfield Garage Outlaw Mini Stocks were really feeling the pressure of the last race of the season. There were multiple spin-outs, a fair amount of pushing and shoving that had to be dealt with, and a red flag for a flip taken by Mike Lique in the 7 car after catching a tire on the infield. Lique quickly exited the car and was fine, but his night of racing was over. John Knight was the winner in the 12k and also the points champion of the season. James Davis finished second in the 87 and Aaron Bunker was third in the 55.
Legion Speedway will be back in action next year on Sunday afternoons. See you there!
