Lethbridge wins CASCAR PowerWater Sportsman race at Barrie

BARRIE, ON - Ron Lethbridge of Barrie, ON thrilled his hometown fans on Saturday night at Barrie Speedway by winning the 100-lap CASCAR PowerWater Sportsman Series race. The Fuel Genie Dodge driver started on the outside of the front row and quickly moved to the head of the 23-car field.

Lethbridge, a rookie competitor on CASCAR's Sportsman Series, passed polesitter Brad Graham on the first lap and led the way for the remainder of the race, which was slowed by four cautions for a total of 24 laps.

Defending PowerWater Series champ Graham (HB Material Handling Dodge) chased Lethbridge for the entire race distance, but the Glencoe, ON racer could not recover the top spot. The final podium position went to Dion Verhoeven of Kerwood, ON in his McRobert Fuels Pontiac.

The Canada Day Northern 500 Race Weekend at Barrie Speedway continues on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. with the Dodge Charger 300 presented by the Dodge Dealers of Ontario; the fourth race of the CASCAR Super Series season. Mt. Albert, ON racer Kerry Micks will start on the pole on Sunday afternoon in his PowerWater Ford, alongside of Super Series points leader Don Thomson Jr. in his Home Hardware Chevy.
