Wilson nabs feature win ‘three-peat’


Tylar Wilson just might like this whole winning thing.
The Fort Frances native nabbed his third-straight feature win in the Street Stocks division in Borderland Racing Association action Saturday night at the Emo Speedway.
It was “Memorial Night” at the track, with drivers competing in honour of so many incredible ones before them.
David Caruk of Thunder Bay finished second in the Street Stocks feature while Jake Froemke of International Falls was third.
Wilson tops the division point standings with 332 points, with Jesse Thompson of Emo in second (282).
Paul Hari (276) and Raice Westover of the Fort (269) round out the top four.
Brody Strachan of Emo, meanwhile, captured his second WISSOTA Modifieds feature win of the season.
Jeff Davis of Devlin was right on his heels for another top-three finish, with Gavin Paull of the Fort placing third.
It’s a tight race in the division, with Strachan and Davis tied atop the standings with 302 apiece.
Paull is a close second with 301, followed by Gary Wilson of Devlin in third (276).
Wyatt Boyum of International Falls was a first-time winner in the WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds feature Saturday night.
Jake Rea of Devlin nabbed second place, followed by Dayton Brady (Devlin) in third and Cody Ossachuk (Fort Frances) fourth.
Brady, who now has 313 points, leads Ossachuk by just three points in the division standings.
James Lambert of the Fort sits third (278).
Racing resumes this Saturday, with hot laps at 7 p.m. and the first heat at 7:30 (weather permitting).
In racing action elsewhere, Matt DePeiro of Fort Frances failed to start the Modifieds feature after a ninth-place showing in his heat at the Grand Rapids Speedway last Thursday.
Joseph Krause of International Falls failed to finish the Midwest Modifieds feature and ended up placing 14th overall.
And former Emo resident Christopher Leek finished eighth in the Midwest Modifieds feature at the Red River Co-op Speedway in Winnipeg.
