Good weekend in Ontario for Alain Bergeron--

Ohsweken ON, - June 22, 2007...Alain Bergeron and his team were in the Niagara Falls ON region this weekend for two races in two evenings. Friday June 22, ESS drivers were at Ohsweken Speedway. With the handicap system in place, Bergeron had to deal with inversed positions and he was tenth on the A-Main starting grid. Saint-Pie QC driver made his way, and at a certain point he was in 6th place. However, lap cars combined with a track that was becoming very slick for the car setup, Bergeron lost two positions to finally finish in eight place.

Bergeron had qualified for the A-Main winning his heat race while he was second on the starting grid. Very good performance also in the DASH race with a second place finish. The DASH was one of the great moments of the evening as Alain Bergeron and Chuck Hebing fought hard in a duel for the second place in that four laps DASH race. Neither one of the two drivers wanted to give up and both exchanged the position many times. The Quebec driver won the duel.

Thorold ON - June 23, 2007-- The following night, Saturday June 23, the ESS series was at Thorold ON at Merrittville Speedway and Alain Bergeron wanted, at any price, to have a great performance. fourth on the starting grid in the A-Main, Bergeron quickly made his way to the second place and found himself in the back of the leader. Trying several groves and at the bottom of the track, the leader was able to keep up and resist to Bergeron's attacks. So it's in second place that the Saint-Pie QC driver crossed the checkered.

Earlier, Bergeron had qualified for the A-Main finishing second in his heat. He had qualified also for the DASH race. The Quebec driver had kept his initial position and finished second..

Merrittville Speedway Kid's Club -- During the evening program at Merrittville Speedway, Pete and Nancy Bicknell, owners of the track, had invited Alain Bergeron to participate at a 3 laps bicycle race on the Kart track against the 2006 local champion. That race was organized for the track Kid's Club. The bicycles had the colors and numbers of the driver's cars and the young fan was winning the bicycle.
