Story By: ASHLEY MCCUBBIN / OUTLAW MIDGETS – INNISFIL, ONT – Jessica James picked up right where she left off last year, dominating the Outlaw Midgets presented by Canadian Tire Innisfil season opener at Sunset Speedway.
Larry Lawson won the qualifying heat followed by Rob McCall, Jessica James, Mike Bradley, Jeff Blackburn, Kevin Spiez, Mikey Homewood, Jamie Kay, and Kayla Semple, with Dan Bound failing to finish. Also, Dan Kviring did not take the green flag.
The feature would start heads-up to the qualifying heat results, with Jessica James taking the top spot on Lap 1 ahead of McCall and Blackburn. The shuffling started on Lap 2, though, with Lawson moving up to third ahead of Bradley, with Blackburn back to fifth ahead of Spiez, Bound, Kay, Homewood, and Kviring. Blackburn would fight back, getting back by Bradley for fourth on Lap 6, while Kviring made his way pit side with mechanical issues.
Bound was also able to make up some ground, moving into sixth on Lap 8, bringing Kay through with him as Spiez now ran eighth. Spiez’s race hit a bigger snag with five laps to go, as he went around for a spin in turn two.
Jessica James got a good restart, and led the rest of the way en route to the victory, ahead of Larry Lawson, Jeff Blackburn, Dan Bound, Mike Bradley, Jamie Kay, Rob McCall, Kevin Spiez, Mikey Homewood, and Kayla Semple. Dan Kviring did not finish en route to placing 11th.
