We had another great turnout in Ontario for the Challenge GP for April, with 14 racers ready to compete for the win. There were the usual regulars that were atop the leader board after qualifying, with Bryce Raygor taking pole position with a 46.624 second lap. The next competitor was almost a full second behind him with a 47.516 by Robert Hernandez and Noah Stein qualifying third with a 47.547.
The A Main was packed with racers ready to make a move on the competitor right in front of them. Bryce took them to the green flag with Robert not allowing Bryce to break away like he normally does. Robert stayed on his bumper, just hoping Bryce would make a mistake. This also allowed fourth place starting Michael Eshleman to take the third position and also have time to catch up to the lead pack. Michael made some daring moves into a couple corners but couldn’t make the pass cleanly, so he wisely backed off and continued to try. Bryce was able to hold on to the victory but not by much, with Robert in a close second, only. 467 behind and Michael in third, only .819 behind. Christopher Morales finished in fourth and Tyler Walker rounded out the top 5.
With four races in the books for the season, there are only 2 races left before we crown the champion for the Ontario Challenge GP. We look forward to seeing more of you try out the best adult racing league in the Inland Empire next month on May 5th!
