|In the Grand Prix, Brandon Kennedy was victorious for the third consecutive time in the “Team H8 Cancer” GP-25 on Sunday, and his perfect 75-point record allowed him to establish his lead at the top of the championship ranking. Local favorite Ken Brodie II won heat 3B and the Grand Island (N.Y.) driver finished 2nd overall in the “Intensity” GP-50.
Scott Liddycoat (GP-93), Mike Monahan (GP-35), Joe Sovie (GP-57) and Marc Théorêt (GP-444) took the subsequent places on the weekend podium. Bert Henderson will have to make the necessary repairs to the “Steeler” and he promised to be in Detroit on August 25 and 26.
His brother Kent Henderson took top honors in Hydro 350 with a first and two second place finishes in Team H-777 “Toban”. The leader in the standings, Rémy Leblanc finished 2nd aboard “AllardMénard.com” H-799, only 3 points behind Henderson, and he secured his position at the top of the championship ranking.
Bobby King (H-242), Douglas Rapp (H-79), Marc Lecompte (H-104) and Jimmy King (H-12) were assured of a place in the final before wind caused the cancellation of the rest of the race program. Joe Less (H-600) was tied with Jimmy King in overall points in 6th place but the latter was favored in the tiebreaker with the fastest time. Less, a sentimental favorite would have had to go through the consolation just like Richard Haineault (Miss Beauharnois H-2) who was 8th in the weekend’s points.
