Dion Verhoeven wins CASCAR PowerWater Sportsman Series race at Barrie Speedway

BARRIE, ON - Dion Verhoeven won Saturday night's CASCAR PowerWater Sportsman Series race at Barrie Speedway. The driver of the McRobert Fuels Pontiac started third in the field of 23 for the fourth PowerWater Series race of the season and passed Brad Graham with five laps to go in the race.

Graham, the defending champion of CASCAR's Sportsman Series, started on the pole for the 100-lap event and looked as though he was going to lead the entire race until contact between he and Verhoeven knocked him out of contention and down to a 10th-place finish. Graham's pole-winning qualifying effort of 14.366 seconds broke the overall CASCAR qualifying record at Barrie, which was set by Super Series driver Kerry Micks in early July.

Second-place at Barrie went to multi-time PowerWater Series champ Steve Robblee, of Dorchester, ON. London, ON racer Mike Alguire took the final podium position in his Pontiac.

The next outing for the PowerWater Sportsman Series takes place on Saturday, August 20 at Peterborough Speedway.

NOTE:
Today's scheduled CASCAR Super Series race at Cayuga 2000 Speedway has been cancelled due to the weather.

The race has been rescheduled to Saturday, Sept. 10 at 8 p.m. at Cayuga.
