Chaos Reigns Supreme at Full Throttle while Hometown Hero McAllister earns first win!

Posted on: June 6th, 2023

It didn’t take Durham’s Cory McAllister long to get the Ontario Sportsman Series figured out. In fact, the veteran Ontario racer was able to get his first victory in the series in only his third career start! McAllister was barely edged for the WMI Pole Award by 2022 Series Champion Kevin Trevellin. It was Trevellin who took the lead first and held the lead with McAllister in hot pursuit. Slowly, smoke started to creep out of the wheel well of the #19 Leisure Trailer Sales/Shockpros Dodge. By lap twenty, smoke was continuously appearing, and two laps later, Trevellin spun coming off of Turn 2. He was done for the night with a bad seal on the #19. McAllister would take over the lead and lead for a good bit! A battle between Chad McGlynn, the points leader and Brendan Patrick in the #02 went sour, as contact would send the #8 Ford Mustang of McGlynn around, and the #02 Camaro hard into the turn four wall, resulting in a red flag, and the end to a promising start for Patrick. Contact on the ensuing restart would cause the #71 to spin around from the lead! Connor James in the #4 Airdale Carriers Camaro would lead next while Michael Hryniuk Jr. in the #15 would find his way to the front despite a horrible qualifying run. As the laps would down, McAllister was able to chase down James and steal the lead away again, before the top three found themselves in heavy lap traffic! McAllister held on to win the Auto & Home 100, while Hryniuk Jr. made contact with James off of Turn four on the Checkered to grab second, and the #4 Camaro slid across to finish third.

Chad McGlynn keeps his points lead over new second place Sean Mangin! Connor James, the 2019 Champion is third, and Hryniuk Jr. & McAllister tie for fourth.

The next OSS race is June 17 at Sunset Speedway, for the Sunset 100 Presented by Somal Watches & Clocks, Wise Water Solutions, RBC Mapleview & Vaughan Chrysler!
