A formidable posse chased after The #2 of Outlaw Midget driver Jessie James as she made her break away to the Checkered Border at Sunset Speedway on August 17th.

In close pursuit was the #68 of Marshal Adam Carrothers and the #5 of Sheriff Jody Bound. Marshal Carrothers had actually overtaken the speedy James but displaying some fancy  360 spinning, without a caution, he was passed by the Outlaw and the Sheriff, relegating him into third. The Marshal mashed the gas and kept going, eventually passing Sheriff Bound, before Jessie James and the Rhino’s Roadhouse gang made it safely across the border on lap 25. Full pardon’s were granted all around.

The race was not without some other exciting moments as well. A lap 11 mishap resulted in the #20 of “Stuntman” Jon Nebel doing a very slow roll over. No Injuries were reported but He was given a belly rub and a biscuit.

Congratulations to all the Heat Winners and Jessie James in the Feature.

There was a hugely popular Fan Appreciation Autograph Session just before the Feature Races. What did YOU get to sign?

The August 5th weather start did not look very promising, but Mother Nature strapped on her Race Fan Wings and let the Racers Soar to some Glorious Competition at Sauble Speedway.

With a Jam-packed parking lot, looking more like an RV Sales lot, the crowd was treated to some Fantastic racing.

The Outlaw Midgets put on a Super show with some great side by side racing on both days.

Congratulations to #5 Jody Bound on winning both features.

As a courtesy to the Local Track Photographer Mike… (Good Name Dude) I did not shoot any of the NYPA single car practice, but I did shoot the final group practice, the Heat Races and the Feature Race. The “Wingless Wonders” were a joy to watch and they were pretty dang speedy to boot. Good Show Folks.

FYI… I noticed a typo in the watermark on the photos. There is on ly one C in Cableguyphotos. Oops, Fat Fingers. LOL

Outlaw Midgets Racing Club presented By DAYCO driver Rob Blackburn #99 was sizzling hot at Sunset Speedway on July 15, 2017. Having melted the field in both of his heats, he went on to win the 25 lap feature to complete the perfect evening.

Perennial Fast Runner and defending champ #5 Jody Bound had some wall issues in the feature and was a DNF. Bound did win heat race #2 and was 2nd in heat race #4. Jessica James #2 won a close race over Bound in heat #4. James also had issues in the feature and was also a DNF in what was a very entertaining night of Outlaw Midgets Racing. There were 23 cars that were present to start the day.

Congratulations to all the Winners.

Next up for the Outlaw Midgets Racing Club presented by DAYCO is a trip South of the Border to Visit Chapel Hill Raceway in Great Valley, New York on July 29, 2017.

Mother Nature toyed with the weather, taunting and teasing the Drivers , Crews and Fans, but finally decided we could play in what was now a very soggy Flamboro Speedway sandbox.

All the staff and crews helped to get the track dry for hundreds of laps of racing and rubbing.

Congratulations to all the winners and a Huge Thank You to the Fans that came out to support Flamboro Speedway, You Are The Best.

The Outlaw Midgets Presented by Dayco, Larry’s Small Engines and Canadian Tire Innisfil series kicked off it’s 2017 Season Opener at Sunset Speedway, much to the joy of all the drivers.

Sure there was some confusion as this was the first shake-down of the year and let’s face it, a few opening night jitters for a few.

The evening consisted of 2 heat races with the field divided into two groups, with a Single Feature for the Finale.

A small… okay, BIG surprise, as the World Famous Batmobile was the Pace Car for the first round of the second heats.

The #5 of Jody Bound was determined not to go defeated this season and it will be hard to stop the fast driver of the Larry’s Small Engine machine.

Bound was victorious in both heats, and won the Feature to boot. I’m guessing he probably would have beat the Batmobile, if Batman hadn’t left to fight crime in some far off region.

Congratulations to all the drivers and continued success for the rest of the 2017 season.

Race number one at Sunset Speedway marks the debut of Dayco Canada as Presenting Sponsor

 

INNISFIL, ON – Following in the tire tracks of an intense inaugural season, the Outlaw

Midgets presented by Dayco Canada with support from Canadian Tire Innisfil and

Larry’s Small Engines Orangeville, are set to hit the track and prove that year one was

not a fluke.

 

With more than 30 cars pre-registered for the 2017 season, there are new faces and

returning veterans with eyes on dethroning defending series champion, Jody Bound.

Drivers have taken the off season to retool with new chassis and engine combinations,

set to debut when the green flag drops on June 10th at Sunset Speedway in Innisfil,

Ontario.

 

Names like Brian and Richard Woodland, Jessica James, Robin McLean and Shawn

Gardiner will be looking to unseat Bound who has been a formidable force in the Ultra-exciting series.

 

For 2017, the series has a schedule of nine races, making stops at Sunset Speedway,

Sauble Speedway and at Chapel Hill Raceway located in Great Valley in upstate New

York, U.S.A.

 

Powered by 440 fan-cooled snowmobile engines, the Outlaw Midgets are fast, exciting and an affordable series to get involved in.

 

Follow along throughout the season, online at outlawmidgets.ca or search them out on Facebook.

Well after a long off season and being Officially retired from the working work after 38 years and 3 weeks, I was finally able to get back to Flamboro Speedway to pick up photo duties as Derek’s (Racepulse.com) fill-in. The evening was spectacular. Great weather and some really fine side-by-side racing.

The first Pro-Four race kept me on my toes, by putting a car on the top of the wall. Fortunately there were no injuries and a minimal delay as Ray’s Towing put their skills to work to remove the offending wall ornament onto the flatbed.

The rest of the evening was pretty clean and green.

Congratulations to all the Feature Winners.

As I settle into a retired life, I wish all the Drivers a safe and successful 2017 season. I will be back to Flamboro in a few weeks.

It’s bout time I wrote something…
First, Welcome to the 2017 Race Season. It looks to be exciting on several fronts.
 
Life is always changing, some good, some… not so good. I am no different than most of you out there. There are BIG changes for me in 2017. On May 30th I retire from Rogers Communications after 38 years and 3 weeks of being a Cable Guy (My Choice). That doesn’t mean that I am not going to work anymore, it means that I will work when and where I want. There is some really cool cable/fiber optic technologies out there that I wish to pursue in the United States. That is of course if I can get the Official Trump Seal of Approval (I can make a pretty mean wall to throw me over, if that’s what it takes.)
 
This does affect my track photography commitments. I will not be committing to any single track for 2017. I have committed to the Outlaw Midget series, as a favour to my good friends the Bradley Family. Derek Smith (Racepulse.com) is also a very good friend and I will help out Derek to cover several Flamboro Speedway dates, that he cannot make. I am also making a personal commitment to a Lifelong Friend who is battling Cancer and to help him “FCUK CANCER” (Did I say this right, Mike Langley?) I will be spending a few weeks in June with Brian, fishing and dragging his ass around the North Shores of Lake Superior with my ATV. I have not visited Brian in the summer for a decade or more because of my race track commitments, he needs this, more than the tracks do.
 
I plan on seeing some NASCAR races that I have always wanted to see but have never really had the proper time to do so. Phoenix, Texas, Vegas are but a handful.
 
I am a Summer/Heat person, I LOATH Winter, Snow and Ice and plan on being one of those Snowbirds. North Carolina is the planned base of operations. Why, You ask??? It is close to home if I need to get back for whatever reason. It is in the Heart of NASCAR country to visit race shops, and local grassroots tracks, both Dirt and Asphalt. If it starts to get cooler and threatens snow, it’s only about a day drive to Florida. So probably the ideal location.
 
Nothing is etched in stone.
 
CableGuy Photos wish each and every Racer a Great and Successful 2017 and hope to see many of you as possible during the year.
 
Please take the time to visit and support a Local race track near you. Buy a t-shirt, or souvenir. Buy a photo from a local photographer (Believe me, we don’t get rich from this) or even just a Pop & Hot Dog. When we all do this the sport will continue to survive and you will have that track to go to for years to come.
 
This post has been long enough, Thanks for taking the time to read this, if you got this far.
