We had an amazing turnout for the Challenge GP Sunday night, with 19 participants! Qualifying had the usual suspects up at the front of the board, with Bryce Raygor setting the fast lap for qualifying with a 47.967!
The B Main was set with Noah Stein on pole and John Carroll right on his back bumper to start the race. Noah was able to get a gap John just enough where John wasn’t able to make any moves to take the lead. John stayed poised and just patiently stayed close behind, waiting for Noah to make a mistake. Noah ended up being mistake free during the B Main and claimed the victory! John Carroll finished 2nd and newcomer Aaron Stewart finished in third after starting from 6th spot.
The A Main had Bryce Raygor starting from pole with a hungry RJ Stearns ready to make him work for every second he was in the lead. Bryce was able to set some blistering laps the first few laps and was able to gap RJ by a pretty good margin. Bryce continued to set fast laps and was able to bring home the 1st place trophy for the A Main. RJ finished in 2nd spot, with Matthew Yoakum close behind. Don Diego Veloria finished in the fourth spot and hard charger Mike Marino finished in 5th after starting from 9th place on the grid.
It was a great night of racing Sunday night and hope to see an even bigger field next race on March 3rd in Ontario!

We had a good turnout for the beginning of the 2013 season on the reverse Supertrack here in Ontario. We had 13 racers ready for the new season, eager to make a name for themselves and put them in contention for the championship. It was a brand new challenge for everyone this season, since no one had ever driven the track in the reverse direction. Qualifying went very smooth with the new configuration, with Robert Hernandez taking the top spot with a lap of 48.099 seconds.
The A Main started off with Robert Hernandez ready to take charge of the race, with his first time on the pole position. Bryce was ready to get back to where he left off last season, with a victory in the last race. Bryce would put some early pressure on Robert as the first couple laps got under way, but Robert held a perfect line around the track in order to keep himself in the lead. There were also good battles mid pack, with Mike Marino trying his hardest to hold off hard charging Eric Ross. Eric would eventually prevail. After a few laps were in the books and Robert started to get into a rhythm, he would slowly start gapping Bryce every corner and would also set the fastest lap of the night with a 47.775 on the 5th lap of the race. Robert Hernandez took the checkered flag in first, with Bryce Raygor finishing second, Bob Hyman in third, Christopher Morales in fourth, and Eric Ross rounding out the top 5.
It was great to see so many first timers to the Challenge GP this month in Ontario and look forward to see those racers return, as well as seeing more and more newcomers come out and try to see if they can beat the best of the best.
