Styres Wins SOS Round 3 at Brighton

by Tommy Goudge, June 14, 2008

It had been over 2 full seasons since Glenn Styres visited victory lane in Southern Ontario Sprints competition, and the Ohsweken, Ontario resident made sure that streak didn’t go any longer by winning Round #3 of the 2008 SOS season at Brighton Speedway. Styres, who is co-owner/promoter of the Ohsweken Speedway, last won an SOS feature at Brighton on May 6, 2006, and earlier this season ended his overall winless drought in weekly competition at Ohsweken.

Bob Crawford and Warren Mahoney led the field to the green flag to start the 20 lap feature, with Crawford taking the early lead. Styres quickly made his presence known, however, and made his way from the 5th starting spot into the lead after just 5 laps. Shortly after Styres took the lead, the race was slowed by the yellow flag as the 14 of Bill Baldwin came to a stop in turn 3 and retired for the night.

Styres reasserted his lead on the restart and was never seriously challenged as the race went green the rest of the way, but behind him the race for 2nd was fast and furious. Mahoney passed Crawford for the position, but a hard charging Rick Wilson had made his way to the top 5 after starting 8th. Wilson and Mahoney staged an entertaining duel for the 2nd position during the last few laps of the race, with Wilson eventually prevailing, leaving Mahoney to settle for 3rd, followed by Keith Dempster, and Crawford.

Chris Jones entered the night as the points leader and came home with a 6th place finish after starting 9th. Ryan Hunsinger, who made his first ever sprint car start at Brighton in 2001, came home 7th, followed by Adam West, Dick Mahoney, and Derek Jonathon.

Dempster entered the night just 7 points behind Jones, and unofficially emerged with the points lead, with Wilson also moving in front of Jones. The top 3 of Dempster, Wilson, and Jones are seperated by just 5 points as the SOS tour heads into its first doubleheader weekend of the season June 28 at South Buxton Raceway and June 29 at Humberstone Speedway.
