INNSFIL, Ontario — After posting a career-best time trialing effort behind the wheel of the No. 20 Peterbuilt Late Model, A.J. Emms ran in the top-10 through the feature en route to a seventh-place finish.
As noted, Emms started off the evening strong, qualifying fourth for the first 35-lap feature. Despite dropping back to fourth in the early laps and being put three-wide after the first caution, he battled hard against the front runners to be scored third with just seven laps on the board. Restarting on the inside of row two, he’d drop back a couple spots to fifth by the halfway mark.
He’d work his way back up to third on an ensuing restart, though faded back to fifth once again by the next caution at Lap 20. The final 15 laps saw him continue to battle hard, but ultimately cross the finish line with a seventh-place finish.
Drawing the sixth starting spot in the re-draw for the second feature, he once again battled hard through the early laps. Unfortunately, he’d fall back in the early stages to seventh, before contact with another driver sent him for a spin in turn four on Lap 7. Restarting from the tail of the field, he was unable to make up much ground through the second half of the feature en route to an 18thplace finish.
The next race on the schedule for Emms is the third race on the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified schedule at Delaware Speedway. Emms currently sits third in the standings following two events.
