2015 Season Finale has 5 first time winners visit
Victory Lane – 22nd Season to honor
1st and 2nd time Champions

The 2015 Lucas Oil Weekly Karting Series Racing wrapped up at Merrittville Speedway September 8th with 5 first time winners visiting KC Auto Parts Victory Lane.

First to win his first career Feature was second generation Kart Racer Hayden Klager of Beamsville in the Vansickle PetValu Novice 1 Division. The 2015 Rookie is the son of current Rev’s Full Throttle Powersports Modified Lite racer Paul Klager.

St. Catharines’ Aiden Lavallee, (grandson of former Sportsman and Hoosier Stock driver Ron MacAulay) won his first Tim Phillips Garage KC Auto Parts Novice 2 Feature.

With Double Features on the schedule for the Superior PetroFuels Junior Restricted Division – third generation driver Austyn Werstroh of Niagara-on-the Lake won his first of the season in the second event – holding off Joshua Hansen of Beamsville whose 12th win came in the opener.

Jeff Anstett of Newfane NY made his first visit of the season pay off – besting the 12 Kart Field in the Cassell Manufacturing Senior Fun Division.

The final first time winner was a familiar one to those who have been following the Saturday Night Racing back in the day and in recent years.

In what may have been just his second time in a Kart … former Modified Driver Denny Lindberg of Stevenville won the Annual Father’s Fun Race that closes the season.

Denny and Wendy Lindberg’s sons Paul and John have Kart Racing backgrounds of their own while Gary won his first Championship in the Rick’s Delivery Sportsman Division this season.

Performance Manufacturing Divisional action also saw some familiar faces take home wins with Tucker Wood of Stevensville making his win total to 13 in the RCM Racing Equipment Junior 1 Division while Welland’s Dalton Slack won for the 10th time in the Ed MacPherson Construction Junior 2 Division.

Double Features were also on the schedule for the Wilder Racing Engines Senior Animal Division. Dylan Culp and Travis Majuery both of Niagara Falls won their 5th and 3rd Features respectively.

When the 22nd Season of Lucas Oil Weekly Karting Series Action comes to an official close with the Awards Banquet at Club Castropignano on Sunday November 29th, two first time and two repeat Performance Manufacturing Champions will be among the honorees.

Joshua Hansen, (Superior PetroFuels Junior Restricted) and Dylan Culp, (Wilder Racing Engines Senior Animal) will receive their awards as first time Champions while Tucker Wood, (RCM Racing Equipment Junior 1) and Dalton Slack, (Ed McPherson Construction Junior 2) both successfully defended their 2014 Titles.
