When it was almost over, the Independence Day champ Jose Rodrigues found his 86 Corvette losing control on the final lap, allowing the 94 Camaro of fellow Pawtucket native Al Amarantes to pick up the win. Nick Pereira of Cumberland finished third after brushing his 88 Nissan 300ZX against the wall coming down for the checkered flag in the semi-final.

When the Pure Stocks hit the speedway, the fans were anticipating another barn burner. It was anything but predictable. Tom Blackwell of Taunton was running toward the front when he spun his Buick on lap 6. He was third at the time.

Champion Late Model stock car driver Brent Dragon is headed “home” to Capital City Speedway in Ottawa, Ontario for Saturday’s Toromont CAT 100.  But there’s one small thing: Dragon is from Milton, Vermont, 200 miles and an international border away.  In fact, he’s never even seen Capital City Speedway.  So why is it “home”?

Enter Mike and Tom Kenyon.  Through their Kenyon Racing Products company, the Kemptville, ON brothers supplied the Port City chassis that Dragon pilots on the American-Canadian Tour (ACT).  Mike Kenyon is also Dragon’s crew chief, and in fact, Kenyon Racing Products sponsors the weekly Late Model division at Capital City Speedway.  Beyond that, Dragon, an avid big game hunter, spends much of his winter months in the Ontario woods.
