Story By: JIM CLARKE / CANADIAN LEGEND CAR SERIES – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – Across the board, the motorsports community loves a first-time main event winner. Saturday, July 9th Dawson Drimmie earned his place in the history of the Trailers Plus Canadian Legend Car Series with his first career feature victory at Peterborough Speedway.
Coming from his 4th place starting spot at the drop of the green flag, Drimmie set his own pace in a march to the front and used the Legend Car Series’ ‘choose’ rule to his advantage on restarts to put his No. 66 machine in position for a run to the checkered flag. Even with a pair of former tour champions and the series’ only previous main event winner matching his lap times, Drimmie made the pass that sealed his trip to the winner’s circle with the 13 laps showing on the scoreboard.
Parker Traves, Adam Cuthbertson, Matt Haufe and Jordan Latimer rounded-out the top 5. Paul Pierik, Chad Strawn, Steve Gareau, Caleb Drimmie, Glenn Morris, Zach Latimer, Sean Walker, Jeff McGibbon, Glenn Lloyd and Cameron Townson completed the Canadian Legend Car Series finishing order.
Chad Strawn, Adam Cuthbertson, Jordan Latimer and Parker Traves scored checkered flags in the night’s qualifying events.
