Pollard Earns $50,000 North Of The Border


HAGERSVILLE, Ontario – Bubba Pollard made the most of a trip to Canada on Sunday by winning the inaugural Canadian Short Track Nationals at Jukasa Motor Speedway.

The victory in the 200-lap pro late model event was worth $50,000 (CAD) to the Georgia driver, which equals $38,000 USD. Last weekend Pollard took home $28,000 after winning the Oxford 250 at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway.

Pollard took the lead for the final time on lap 144 after passing Quebec’s Raphael Lessard. He then held off a determined charge from polesitter Carson Hocevar, who spun early in the race but marched back through the field to challenge for the victory.

Brian Campbell finished third, followed by Patrick Laperle and J.R. Fitzpatrick. Americans swept the top-three finishing positions.

The finish:

Bubba Pollard, Carson Hocevar, Brian Campbell, Patrick Laperle, J.R. Fitzpatrick, Brandon Watson, Derek Ramstrom, Shae Gemmell, Matt Pritiko, Taylor Holdaway, Cayden Lapcevich, Treyten Lapcevich, Jake Sheridan, Cole Powell, Billy Schwartzenburg, Kyle Reid, Jordan Sims, Shawn McGlynn, David Elliott, Branden Verhoeven, Steve Arrand, Matthew Shirley, Nick Goets, Matt Box, Lane Zardo, Steve Laking, Raphael Lessard, Wes Griffith Jr., Jo Lawrence, Jesse Kennedy, Jason Hathaway, Brady Smith, Jaxson Jacobs, Rick Spencer-Walt, Patrick Freel, Harold Fair, Martin Latulippe, Johnny VanDoorn, Kent Vincent, Trevor Monaghan.
