AMHERST – Another week has quickly passed, but not without its share of drama and excitement.

Blue skies and warm temperatures were the order of the day at Shediac’s Centre for Speed.

Veteran, Bill Sommerville, father of PASS Tour regular and former Maritime pro stock racer, Lonnie Sommerville, proved that he can still get around the paved oval in a hurry, as he piloted his #27 Sportsman machine to an impressive victory in Shediac in the final leg of the Maritime Super Sportsman series.

Sommerville led the last half of the 100-lap event and fought off challenges from several other competitors, in route to Victory lane.

Calvin Rankin, the Saint John area competitor who had won the first two legs of this series, came on strong in the final laps to nail down second in the race. In so doing, Rankin also became the 2011 Series champion.        

Local Springhill driver, Justin MacDonald, proved that he is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the “Four Cylinder” class, as he swept to victory in all three races, for a “Grand Slam”.
