PORT COLBORNE, Ontario – Steven Beckett picked up his first sprint car victory in the Bob Deswiage Memorial with the Action Sprint Tour Sunday at New Humberstone Speedway.

Beckett and Spencer Davis were on the front row for the fifth race of the Action Sprint Tour season, with Beckett showing the way. Josh Hansen would take second away from Davis with Liam Martin, Blaine Barrow and Paul Klager racing in the top-five early on.

Beckett and Hansen would pull away from the field as the leaders would hit lap traffic on lap 10. Tyler Ward, Al Gilletta and Noelle Teal spun in turn three to bring out the second caution.

Beckett would pull away on the restart from Hansen with Martin, Klager and Barrow raced in the top five. Brady Chastney spun in turn four to bring out the caution with seven laps to go.

The restart green would see Beckett continue to show the way and would lead Hansen by two car lengths. A three-lap dash for the cash saw Beckett continue to lead as Klager looked and completed the pass to take third away from Martin.

Ryan Hunsinger made his presence felt late in the event as he entered the top five. Martin would be able to get around Klager to regain third but in the end, it was Steven Beckett scoring his first career win.

“It is awesome to get our first win here,” said Beckett in victory lane. “We were so consistent and tonight it paid off.”

Hansen finished second, followed by Martin, Klager and Hunsinger.
