Munro wins Sunday's rain-delayed CASCAR PowerWater Sportsman Series race at Cayuga 2000 Speedway

HAMILTON, ON - CASCAR PowerWater Sportsman Series veteran Steve Munro won Sunday afternoon's 100-lap feature race at Cayuga 2000 Speedway. The event, which was originally scheduled for Saturday night at the 5/8-mile banked speedway, was moved to Sunday by inclement weather.

Munro, who hails from Carp, Ontario, started third in the 21-car field and took the lead from Dion Verhoeven just before the halfway point of the race. Verhoeven's McRoberts Fuels Pontiac started on the pole and showed the way for the first 47 laps until giving way to Munro's Chevy.

Verhoeven held on for second place at the finish, less than a quarter of a second behind Munro, whose only other PowerWater Series victory came on August 13, 2003 at his hometrack; Ottodrome Int'l Speedway, near Ottawa.

Finishing third on Sunday at Cayuga was multi-time Sportsman Series champ Steve Robblee, of Dorchester, ON. Ironically, the Grogan / McRobert Propane Ford Taurus driver also claimed the final podium position in Munro's '03 win at Ottodrome.

Sunday's race at Cayuga was the third CASCAR PowerWater Sportsman Series race of the season. The next outing for the Sportsman Series takes place August 13 at Barrie Speedway. Barrie, ON racer Ron Lethbridge led all 100 laps of the July 2 PowerWater Series race at his hometrack.
