For AJ Emms, debuting a brand new late model at Sunset Speedway on Saturday night did not go as planned.
Starting off the night, he put together a solid qualifying effort to start 12th for the 35-lap feature. He’d drop back in the early stages, though, running towards the back end of the field. He was then able to avoid a three-car incident at Lap 22.
Restarting 16th with 14 laps left on the board, he’d begin to make some progress forward. However, contact from another competitor resulted in Emms making significant contact with the turn one outside wall, before having another car drive over the hood of his No. 20 Late Model. Thankfully, Emms was uninjured the crash and credited with a 19th-place finish.
While Saturday night did not go according to plan, fortunes will hopefully go in his favor this coming weekend as he will be back behind the wheel of his familiar No. 14 OSCAAR Modified at Flamboro Speedway for the third event of 2017. The Hamilton, Ontario oval has treated him well in his previous two appearances with a pair of runner-up finishes.
