As Nigel Pearson would say, "a night of speedway from the top draw" was enjoyed by the large enthusiastic crowd at the Welland Speedway track.
With a large meeting being held in the USA, the ridership was an all Canadian affair and the six riders produced some awesome racing.
Mike Hammond got the trap just inches ahead of Tommy Hensby and Allan Chisholm, leading the race by a bike length for Hensby to the chequred flag.
Terry Rideout enjoy a lightening start against Kyle Legault and Gary Moody, Legault pushed him wide and shot underneath to take off, sadly for Rideout he was overzealous and slid out on lap 2 but remounted to complete the race as Moody passed him to grab second place. His ankle however was caught under the primary chain guard and the mounting bolt ripped his boot open and caused a nasty swell on his ankle bone. After attention from the track medical staff, he was deemed fit to continue for the rest of the night.
A tight first corner then led to an evenly spread out field of Legault, Hammond and Hensby.
Terry Rideout came out blazing following his crash and took a comfortable win ahead of gary Moody and Allan Chisholm.
Kyle Legault took the outer gate and swooped in front of Tommy Hensby leaving Mike Hammond to grab the lead into the first bend, keeping the lead until corner 2 of lap two, as Legault used his track knowledge and swooped under Hammond to grab the lead to the end, as he was pushed hard by Hammond! Terry Rideout and Tommy Hensby battled hard as Hensby hunted Rideout down and capitalized on a last corner error, as Rideout left a gap for Hensby to shoot inside and grab a well deserved third place! Gary Moody showed his pace with the best seat in the house to watch the battle in front!
