Great win yesterday night at Autodrome Drummond of Drummondville for Team Bergeron. The stands were packed and everyone cheered when the local driver got the win. Sixth on the starting grid, on the second lap Alain Bergeron took the fourth place. Being one of the only driver to use the high groove of the track in the turn one and two, Saint Pie's driver could so get closer to the leaders. On the third lap, Bergeron made another victim and he collected the third position behind Billy Krull and Mike Stelter.

The fans in the stands were wondering if they would saw the 2001 scenario. On the eleventh lap, Bergeron took the second place, again by using the high groove of the track in the turns one and two. He was to be caution to not slide outside the track in turn two, as the track was very dry.

Bergeron had one thing in mind, the win. On the 23rd lap, the leader until now, Billy Krull, lost the control of his Sprint, made some flips and than the officials put the red flag. It was the euphoria in the stands. However, it was not finished yet because behind the 8B car was Bobby Podolak, that one who passed Alain Bergeron in the last laps of the first heat to finish second, and Podolak had a good evening. So, everything was not done.

In a masterly fashion, Alain Bergeron flew away on the lead, leaving his opponents behind to take away the win, his fifth in Sprint Car career with the 'Empire Super Sprints '.
