INNISFIL, Ontario — Despite starting off Spring Velocity strong at Sunset Speedway, it unfortunately did not end as A.J. Emms would have hoped.
Emms started off the weekend by parking the No. 14 Modified in victory lane in his first heat, following a race-long battle. He then battled hard in the second qualifier en route to a fourth-place finish.
Starting fifth for the 40-lap feature, he immediately began to make his way forward on the opening lap with a pair of passes through the first couple corners. Unfortunately, coming off of turn four, he would get a little sideways, going around for the spin before making contact with the frontstretch wall.
It’d ultimately end his race on the first lap, resulting in being credited with a 16th-place finish.
Despite the race not going to plan, he is currently scored 10th in the season standings as a result of the strong qualifying performance.
The next race on the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds presented by Just Foam It schedule is set for June 18 at Sauble Speedway. In each of three previous appearances at the beach, he has scored a top-five finish, including a trip to victory lane in 2017.
