BROCKVILLE, Ontario – Danny Johnson stalked Billy Dunn for 91 laps through heavy lapped traffic and seven restarts during Wednesday’s Super DIRTcar Series event at Brockville Ontario Speedway, then took advantage when Dunn rode a little high in turn three late in the lead late in the event.
Johnson put the Finger Lakes Livestock Exchange No. 27j underneath and past Dunn exiting turn four and drove off with the win in BOB FM/Coca-Cola 100.
The two cars started on the front row and separated themselves from Tim Fuller and Billy Decker on multiple restarts. Mat Williamson rallied late to edge out Fuller for fourth. Decker did not survive fourth turn contact on lap 81 with Williamson. He wound up officially scored 24th.
Jimmy Phelps, who ran consistently in the top ten, completed the top five.
“The track got tight and it came to my liking because I had been too loose,” Johnson said in victory lane. “To go home with confetti on your car is a pretty good deal.”
Dunn, from Watertown, NY, was trying to claim the checkers for the second time in a Super DIRTcar Series event to go with his 2013 Syracuse 200 win.
“I ran a little harder than I wanted in traffic,” Dunn said. “Danny was better at the end.”
