On a hot sticky summers night, the Niagara Motorcycle Raceway was surrounded with thunderstorms and heavy rain, but to everyone's relief the weather avoided the track area.
Flat Track Canada promoted their second event for 2013, and it was a huge success!
The speedway class which comprised of Mike Hammond, Kyle Legault, Terry Rideout, Allan Chisholm, Gary Moody, Zack Peters and Tommy Hensby, put on a great show with some superb support from within!
Terry Rideout kept just a bike length away from Kyle Legault for two laps, then Legault showed his pace and took off. Zack Peters tucked in behind Rideout and Allan Chisholm duplicated the same to the line.
Tommy Hensby's back-up bike gave up with ignition problems and Terry Rideout stepped forward with the loan of his bike. Straight off his heat, he gave Tommy the bike, fueled up and Hensby was away to compete against Mike Hammond and Gary Moody, Hammond and Moody got the gate as Hensby snaked away from the line, Moody looking a bit nervous after his big crash last weekend was passed by Hensby on lap 2 in corner 3, but Hammond was comfortably far enough away for Hensby not to catch him!
With no bike and Terry Rideout in the same heat, Tommy Hensby sat this one out! Mike Hammond led the way with Rideout only just behind for the four laps with Allan Chisholm taking third place and more valuable points on the night!
Kyle Legault flew away and took a commanding lead from Zack Peters and Gary Moody to the line.
The finals were run backwards due to Kyle Legault's final Flat Track race being directly after the scheduled final, to allow him time to get ready.
Legault gated and quickly built a lead from Mike Hammond, Terry Rideout pushed hard only to be rewarded in that Hammond's bike suffered mechanical problems on lap 3, and he pulled off the track. USA Young gun Zack Peters also benefited in grabbing 3rd place!
The race of the night was left till last! Tommy Hensby, Allan Chisholm and Gary Moody took to the track. Hensby got a flyer and pulled ahead of Moody into the first corner, Moody gained huge momentum and chased hard being less that a bike length away from Hensby to whole four laps however, with so much momentum he was forced to back off in the last corner to avoid a repeat of last week's huge crash, and Hensby pulled away to take the chequred flag. Allan Chisholm said after the race, "I had the best seat in the house!"
