Hebert Is A Cornwall Headliner


CORNWALL, Ontario – David Hebert emerged victorious from the 50-lap 358 modified main event on Sunday at Ontario’s Cornwall Motor Speedway.

The 50-lap modified feature saw a field of 30 cars taking the green, with Hebert jumping to the lead with Luke Whitteker and Dany Gagné in third. Hebert got into lap traffic by lap 10.

The caution came on lap 15 for Kevin Hamel. Hebert led three more laps as the caution was out for Jeffrey Lapalme. On the restart, Brianna Ladouceur used the outside lane to move up to second.

A lap 19 restart saw a three-car tangle in turn three. Hebert got the lead with Dany Gagné moved to second and Steve Bernier running in third. Gagne found something on the outside and got closer to the leader with Bernier in the mix.

Gagne passed Hebert for the lead on lap 29 just as the caution flag was shown for Ryan Arbuthnot. Gagne had a strong ride running the top lane, but traffic became a factor as Hebert used the inside lane and regained the lead.

Gagne lost some ground with three to go and gave the second to Bernier. Hebert led the final laps and got the win over Bernier, with Brianna Ladouceur completing the podium.

Jonathan Ferguson topped the 50-lap sportsman main event, while Jason Powers won the 20-lap Vintage feature. Yan Potvin topped the 20-lap mini stock feature.
