Pfaff Fast Qualifier -- Garett Grist
In the F1K Cadet prefinal, Kenneth O'Keefe took the early lead. Garett Grist took the lead on lap four and hung onto the win with O'Keefe on his bumper. Giovianni Pizzale Rhead was third. In the F1K Cadet final, Garett Grist had it all his own until he spun on his own, erasing his huge lead and handing the point to Artem Korolev. Grist ran Korolev down coming onto the last lap and the two tangled with Grist taking the lead. Korolev took a last ditch effort to take the lead, but he was too aggressive and was penalized for the move. That disqualification moved Pizzale Rhead up to second and O'Keefe was third.
Class Champion -- Evan Hayden
Pfaff Fast Qualifier -- Darryl Timmers
In the Canada Senior prefinal, Darryl Timmers made his way back to the front to displace early leader Evan Hayden. Greg Rempel was second and Hayden third.

With the second place finish, Evan Hayden is the 2007 Canada Senior Champion.

Karl Denis Allard Turcotte converted his Pfaff Fast Qualifier award into a prefinal win with Jeff May second and Vincent Rago third. In the F1K final, Vincent Rago -- the point's leader -- spun on the warm up lap and had to go to the back. Then he was caught up in a first turn crash, but got going again. Meanwhile up front Karl Denis Allard Turcotte took the lead, with Jeff May second. May needed maximum points to catch Rago, but it was not to be. Turcotte took the win, with May second and Addison Rayner third. Vincent Rago is the class champion.
