Kyle Legault's winning streak was stopped by an ex-Canadian Champion who ironically only came to test his bike in the practice session.
John Kehoe donned his steel shoe and took to the track after a positive practice session and he joined Kyle Legault, Aaron Hesmer, Tommy Hensby, Gary Moody, Terry Rideout, Allan Chisholm and talented USA youngster Zack Peters on a very hot and humid night, to provide the added entertainment for the largest crowd of the season!
Kyle Legault gated well just enough to hold off the hard charging Aaron Hesmer and Terry Rideout, as they hit the first corner. As the race progressed, Legault and Hesmer pulled ahead slightly of Rideout who was comfortably hold back Zack Peters. Hesmer pushed all race, but Legault proved again to be too hard to pass and won the heat.
Tommy Hensby gated ahead of the pack only to be rounded by a fast looking John Kehoe coming out of corner 2. Hensby pressed hard but was unable to reel in Kehoe over the four laps! Gary Moody was holding his own behind Hensby, until his primary chain imploded mid corner, leaving Moody to do a good save and pull up. Allan Chisholm said thank you, and shot passed to grab third place.
Aaron Hesmer gated well and took a lead to the first corner from Terry Rideout and Gary Moody, Hesmer was too strong and led to the chequered flag well ahead of Rideout, Moody and Chisholm.
An evenly paced heat with Legault winning ahead of Kehoe, Hensby and Peters.
Zack Peters lost all grip on the line and spun toward Allan Chisholm, Gary Moody pulled ahead and led all the way home, as Peters and Chisholm followed in to round out their night iof racing!
No problems for the riders into the first corner this week as Kyle Legault and John Kehoe bunched in the first corner, Hesmer, Rideout and Hensby were right in that action just behind the front two leaders. Hensby was closing in on Rideout when he suffered a mechanical problem on lap 2 and was forced out of the race, but pushed his bike over the line to grab his final position. John Kehoe waited patiently and pulled a great move to pass Legault on lap 3, and held off a late challenge to kill Legault's 2013 winning streak!
