Hall, Mahar, LeClair, Millar Visit Victory Lane at Dramatic Father’s Day Event


(CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – June 17, 2024) – A crowd mix of local and regional stock car racing fans was treated to a sunny Father’s Day showdown at Oyster Bed Speedway on Sunday, June 16. Under clear skies, the event was filled with dominant performances but had a dramatic ending for the ages.

In the first of two Easy-Kleen Super Late Model Series races at Oyster Bed Bridge in 2024, Cory Hall (#83) obliterated the field by leading every lap of the Univeral Truck and Trailer 150 en route to his first SLMS win of the season. Hall qualified second and immediately took the lead at the first green flag, never looking back the rest of the way.

Behind him was a melee with drivers chasing him all day, including three former Oyster Bed Speedway Late Model winners. Robbie MacEwen (#40), Dylan Gosbee (#16), and Darren MacKinnon (#18) each took turns going after the Jolicure native, but all failed to catch Hall. Lonnie Sommerville (#23) won the EIT Race Radios pole and was also within the mix but dropped back to seventh after a late restart.

Ashton Tucker (#2), the winner of the last two SLMS features, had an uncharacteristic start to his day with an 11th-place qualifying result, but he patiently moved his way up to the front and finished third. Ironman Kent Vincent (#8) rebounded from a lap-75 incident to finish eighth. Mike Duskey (#28) finished 11th in his SLMS debut and Tanton Wooldridge (#24), making his 01 Motorsports debut, qualified eighth but left the race after 68 laps. Brandon Snow (#7) made his first Late Model start in several years and finished 13th.

The heat races were won by MacKinnon, MacEwen, and Greg Fahey (#20). Twenty (20) cars were in attendance for the event. Four cautions halted the 51-minute and 17-second race.

In Cross Roads Maritime League of Legends Tour action, Owen Mahar (#66) stayed perfect all day, winning a heat race, the pole and the win in the PiccottCare 50. Mahar started the race fighting for the lead against Ayden Christensen (#24), taking the full lead until a lap traffic fiasco gave Christensen the lead on lap 24. After two quick cautions on laps 38 and 42, Mahar retook the top spot and held on.

Christensen settled for second while two-time PiccottCare 50 winner Craig MacDonald (#98) rounded out the podium. Josh Langille (#18), who won the season-opening race at Speedway 660, finished fourth, and Tanton Wooldridge (#0) barely beat defending PiccottCare 50 winner Caden Tufts (#00) to the start-finish line for fifth.

The race was halted by three cautions. On lap three, Devin Gallant’s (#12) first Legends start since 2021 was cut short by a blown motor in turn one. On lap 38, rookie Stephen Piccott Jr. (#34) spun off the turns one and two banking. On lap 42, Kelsey Hann (#07) went for a slide in turn three.

The heat races were won by Mahar, Christensen, and Nathan Blackburn (#44). 23 cars started the feature and 20 finished. Christensen and Josh Langille are now tied for the points lead with 191 points each.

In the A&S Scrap Metals Street Stock Super Series opener, Randy Millar (#77) returned to Palmer Automotive & Truck Center victory lane for the first time since 2012, claiming his first feature win of the season and his first Street Stock feature win since 2008. Millar initially finished second but was declared the winner after Brodie MacQuarrie (#28), who won the pole and led every lap, failed post-race tech inspection.

Millar’s win had already been dramatic before the checkered flag. The four-time track champion started the feature in seventh but made his way to third by lap 20 and had caught up to a ticking timebomb for the race lead, taking into account post-race tech. Nick Chiasson (#27) and Mitchell Arsenault (#51) were unknowingly battling for the win for over 35 laps. Coming to the white flag, both drivers made contact in turn four, and Millar made a pass in the grass to get by both cars.

Chiasson (#27) followed behind and claimed second. Arsenault did not take the checkered flag. Andrew Thompson (#4) went from a potential fifth-place finish to a podium finish. Tyler Doucette (#24) showed some speed, running as high as fourth, which ended up being his finish, and having a fun mid-race, mid-pack battle with Millar. Keaton Vessey (#001) finished fifth in his first start of the season.

The heat races were won by MacQuarrie and Millar. 11 cars participated in the first of three Street Stock Super Series races across the 2024 calendar.

Jessie LeClair (#46) finally found the luck and results he needed, picking up a dominant win in the 20-lap Moore Well Drilling 4-Cylinder Outlaw feature along with a heat win and the feature pole. It was his first feature win since 2019 and he led every lap. Layton Delaney (#7) came home second and also claimed a win in heat action. Brandon Forsyth (#3) rounded out the podium while Jordan LeClair (#47) and Corey Bridges (#04) collected top-five finishes.

Cash Bridges (#69) and Jeff Bridges (#95) made their Outlaw debuts, with Cash running Gerald Gallant’s former car and Jeff running a Tow Mater-schemed Honda.

15 cars were in attendance for the Moore Well Drilling Outlaw division.

Oyster Bed Speedway’s 2024 stock car racing season continues on Saturday, June 29 for the RE/MAX Rumble. The Moore Well Drilling Outlaw division will be in the spotlight on Canada Day Weekend with their first of three Super Series races across the calendar. The Outlaws will be joined by the Reliable Motors Bandoleros, Chris’s Bobcat Services Mini Stocks, and Gauthier’s Auto Repair Street Stocks. The Alvin’s Auto Sales & Repair Bombers will make their debut as well. Since the June 16 event was postponed from Saturday to Sunday, the June 29 event is scheduled to be the first Saturday night show of the season. The green flag will be waved at 6 pm.
