Round three Sunday racing saw a repeat of round two when wet weather became a key ingredient in the racing action. This time huge rain showers greeted the drivers mid-day, throwing set-ups and strategies out the window. All the practice and qualifying was done in dry conditions, but as the prefinals began the skies opened up and mother nature did her best to slow down the field. Not to be deterred, Officials ran all the prefinals in what can only be described as very difficult conditions. A delay was in place before the action would resume, with standing water in several places, the conditions changed from challenging to dangerous. Officials had no choice but to call the event at the end of the prefinals.

Some call the rain the great equalizer some call it the great unknown. Several drivers showed they have solved the mystery and put on great drives to grab valuable points and mix up the standings.

Novice
In qualifying it was Andre Fiorini leading the way with a lap of 1:12.727 over Austin Bisschop, Jyeed Hutchinson, Clay Van Eerd and Cole Smith-Ledson making up the fast five.

At the end of one lap it was Bisschop, Fiorini, Van Eerd, Smith-Ledson and Hutchinson. The field spread out quickly as drivers dealt with standing water on the track as the rains hammered down. At the checkered flag is was Point Pelee Kart Clubs’ Van Eerd over Fiorini, Bisschop, Jordan Latimer and Smith-Ledson making up the top five.

Junior Lite
Junior Lite points leader Scotty Nagel would draw first blood setting the pace in qualifying with a time of 1:09.096. Mosport Karting’s Sean McPhee would just miss pole as he clocked in a scant 0.030 behind Nagel. The rest of the fast five would be made up of Trevor Rancier, Matteus Makos and Nicholas Ledson.

The first time past the scoring stripe it was McPhee leading the way followed by Makos, Rancier, Nagel and Ledson. Second-year pilot McPhee would lead the first six circuits of the extremely wet track, using his local knowledge to manage the difficult conditions. A half spin on lap seven would allow Makos, Rancier and Nagel to slip by. At the line it was Makos with his first Regional win, breaking Nagel's two-race win streak. He was followed by Rancier, Nagel, McPhee and Ledson.

Junior Heavy
Joshua Dunand topped the qualifying charts with a lap of 1:06.661 besting Jason Assinck, Tristan Gill, Cory Cacciavillani and Michael Taibi.

With the prefinals set to get underway, outside front row starter Jason Assinck was a no start, moving the outside row forward. From the start it was Dunand leading lap one over Gill, Taibi, Artem Korolev and Reid Arnold, up five spots from his tenth place starting position. Cacciavillani would get caught in a lap one spin and reenter the track in last spot. On lap two Arnold charged to P1 making an amazing nine passes in less than two laps. On the next lap Gill would slip back into first with Arnold in second as Julius Makos took over third spot. Korolev would move to P4 in the next lap while Dalton Kellett worked forward from 16th to take over fifth. At the end of eight laps it was Gill followed by Arnold, Makos, Korolev and Kellett. Post-race Kellett would get a one-position penalty putting pole sitter Dunand back into the top five.

Senior Lite
Late Model stock car regular Kelly Wood, making a rare karting appearance, set the pace in qualifying with a lap of 1:04.294. She would followed through by Chris Packham, Jamie Riberdy, Jeremy Brutzki and Kevin Monteith.

Starting position meant nothing as several drivers put on a clinic and showed how to get it done in the rain. After lap one, pole-sitter Wood would lead the way followed by Riberdy, Packham, Monteith and Taylor Gates. On lap two Monteith and Wood traded spots and Monteith never looked back from that point on. Behind Monteith the field worked the laps as the rain continued to pour. At halfway with Monteith out front, Gary Klutt moved into second from his 11th starting spot while Pearce Herder put on an amazing drive slipping into third, up nine spots from his 12th position spot at the end of lap one. Meanwhile Jonathan Treadwell moved into fourth from 13th and Gates was holding onto fifth. By lap eight Cory Page moved his 01 machine into fifth from his 17th starting spot. In the end it was Monteith besting the field by over ten seconds and setting fast lap in the process. He shared the podium with Herder and Klutt. Treadwell and Page rounded out the top five.

Senior Heavy
Alex Defrangia would set the pace in qualifying with a lap of 1:05.880 over AJ Emms, VW TDI Cup driver Adam Kretschmer, Kris Martin and Michael Glaze.

The action came quick and furious as the track continued to be hammered by Mother Nature. Points leader and double race winner TJ Marshall was out on lap one, opening the door for drivers in the hunt to make a dent in his points lead . At the end of one circuit, it was Emms, Martin, Kretchmer, Jack Manns up from 16th and Jamie Riberdy pulling double duty in Lite and Heavy. On lap three Kretschmer would take over P1 from Emms, who was demoted to seventh by a line of karts. Martin would retire on lap six, moving Manns into P2 while Glaze moved into P3 from his 12th starting spot. Corey Walsh would put on an impressive drive taking P4 on lap eight after being pushed back to 18th place in the opening lap from his ninth starting place. At the end of the final lap it would be Kretschmer with the victory over Manns, who put on a great drive to make up 14 spots, followed by Emms, Walsh and Riberdy who surged back in the closing laps to make it into the fast five.

Masters
The elder statesman of the sport showed they can get it done in style in any weather conditions. A new pole sitter emerged as Fred Jordan took the top spot with a lap of 1:06.698. He would be followed by Duane Cinnamon, Shawn Gardner, Randy Packham and Steve Durkac. Points leader Jake Collison would start outside the top five in the sixth spot.

As the rains continued pour, it would be a race not only against their fellow competitors but also against time as track conditions deteriorated. At the end of one lap it was Packam, Jordan, Cinnamon, Collison and Gardner. On lap two Packham and Jordan would trade spots and one lap later Packham would retire with mechanical problems moving Cinnamon into P2. On lap five Collison would take over P2 while Carl Thompson took over P3, up from his seventh spot at the start. The field would settle in for the remaining three circuits. At the checkered flag it was a new winner, Fred Jordan crossing nearly 16 seconds ahead of second place Collison followed closely by Gardner, Alan Sanders up ten spots from 14th, and Cinnamon making up the top five.

The next round of the BSRKC is set for Flamboro Speedway, home the Waterloo Regional Kart Club on July 10 to 12. At the newest karting facility in the region, drivers will experience their first road/oval of the season. The layout utilizes turns one and two of the stock car oval along with the back-stretch before racers dive into the infield Daytona-style for the technical and twisty karting section. Drivers and crews will have their work cut out coming to grips with the unique layout and changing track surfaces. The WRKC will play host to two cycle karts on Saturday and a full slate of four-cycle classes on Sunday. Note the ICC Shifters have been moved to Sunday action from their usual Saturday time slot.
