Cornwall- Alexandria’s own Pro-Stock racer Rock Aubin posted his second straight feature win at Cornwall Motor Speedway on Sunday July 8th. The evening started on a right foot for the 15-season veteran Pro-Stock racer as he held off his forever rival, Stephane Lebrun’s pressure in the heat race and won that first race. Then came the 25-lap feature event. Rock Aubin in his #4 machine promptly entered the lead of the 15-car field. The caution flag came out many times during the race forcing Aubin to rebuild his lead over Lebrun who was right next to him. Lebrun tried everything, but Aubin remained first to get this second feature of the season. “I could hear his motor roaring right behind me” declared Aubin. “It was a good and clean race.”
For now, Rock Aubin sits fourth in the chase for the 2018 Cornwall Motor Speedway Pro-Stock track championship. “I’m not putting any weight on my shoulders” commented the former RPM Speedway track champion, “I’m taking one race at a time, we are here to have fun and I’m not stressing about the local track title.”
Louie Jackson Jr (358 Modified) and Adam Rozon (Sportsman) also shared the honors on Sunday July 8 at Cornwall Motor Speedway.
The Cornwall Motor Speedway’s biggest event of the season will be presented this Thursday, July 12 as the Race for the Cure 150 will be run with 150 laps counting for the DIRTcar 358-Modified series, 50 laps for the Sportsman, 25 laps for Pro-Stock and Eastern Ontario Vintage Club.
