A highly entertaining night of speedway was the order of the night at the Welland Speedway Track. The night filled with thrills and a huge spectacular spill, that left the crowd with lots to buzz about.
The field of riders were grouped together for the night which gave everyone a chance to ride hard and fast!
Kyle Legault left his best ride of the night for the important main final event, where he completely dominated the from the gate, and American youngster Zack Peters on one of Kyle's bikes, also did a great job from the gate to win the Consi Final.
A spectacular crash on lap three caused a delay in the program, as Tommy Hensby became the innocent victim of a very hard crash as he careered into the fallen Gary Moody's bike, Hitting it hard he was thrown over the handlebars somersaulting into the hay bales. Moody's leg got run over by Hensby's bike and the ambulance was called out. After several minutes of treatment, both riders left the track unaided and walked back to the pits a bit battered and bruised. Their bikes however weren't so luck and Tommy Hensby was forced out of the event as his bike was a write off! Moody's bike was frantically worked on by many in the pits, enabling him to ride in the consi final. American Mike Buman won the heat with Terry Rideout and Allan Chisholm finishing behind.
Current Canadian National Champion Aaron Hesmer came up against former and current Canadian Champions Kyle Legault and Mike Hammond, joined by American young sensation Zack Peters the heat saw Hesmer pass Legault on lap 3 down the front straight, smooth as silk, Hammond kept pace as Peters finishes a respectable distance behind.
Mike Buman got a good start and led out of the first corner, with Aaron Hesmer and Terry Rideout right with him, as they entered lap two, Hesmer made his move and went under Buman to grab the lead, and Buman was left to chase hard and also defend his spot from a hard pressing Terry Rideout, then disaster for Buman as his primary chain gave out leaving him to pull up, as Rideout and Allan Chisholm cruised by to the chequred flag.
From the gate, Kyle Legault led Mike Hammond and Zack Peters.
Zack aboard Kyle Legault's second bike, flew to the front and held a good lead to the finish line from Moody and Chisholm.
Kyle Legault came out flying and led comfortably to the chequred flag. Behind him Aaron Hesmer was being chased by Mike Hammond and Mike Buman, Hammond made an unforced error in the final corner and Buman flew underneath him to grab third place as Terry Rideout enjoyed the show just behind them!
