In a wild finish on Saturday night at South Buxton Raceway, Blenheim’s Jeff Schives is the Autotech Services Bombers season champion for the second straight time.

Schives benefited from a collision just before the finish line between leaders Chris Ellerbeck and Shawn Hope allowing Schives to go from third to first in the final moment.

Chatham’s Louis Clements won the Modified feature while Ridgetown’s Dale Glassford won in the Late Models and Merlin’s Eren Vanderiviere won in the Sport Stocks, both winning their sixth features. Blenheim’s Trevor Jones won his fourth in the Mini-Mods.

Leamington’s Joel Dick wrapped up the Modified Division Points Championship with a seventh-place finish in the feature.
