Yesterday night (Friday) it was season premiere at Brockville ON for the drivers of 'Empire Super Sprints ' series and Team Bergeron began well this season. Starting in the second heat of the night, Alain Bergeron was second on the starting grid and he took the lead on the first moments of the race to win the event. This result qualified him automatically for the A-Main, but before it, he had to race in the DASH race. For this second race of the season, Alain won again.

Third on the grid for the A-Main, the driver of Saint Pie QC, had to face a slick track and tough opponents. For the first half of the race, Alain lost some positions and was in sixth at mid-race but more the race was going more the racecar had more grip and got closer to the cars in front. In the 24th and last lap, Alain passed John Karklin jr to finish the event in fifth place. Local hero, Rick Wilson won the event.

' The season should be exciting because the car behaves very well and we must say that we did not have too much success at Brockville in the past, so we are very confident for the season ', said Alain. Daniel Lampron drove the second car of Team Bergeron but a problem with the ' power steering ' in his heat prevented him to be in the A-Main. Not less than 28 Sprints were present to try to qualify for the 22 places available on A-Main grid. Tonight (Saturday), Team Bergeron and the ESS series will be at Can-Am NY.
