CORNWALL, Ontario (Aug. 16) — Taking the lead when Mike Lewis slipped up on the third lap, reigning Ontario Dirt Late Models champion Greg Oakes of Franklinville, N.Y., led the rest of the 35-lap feature for a $2,000 victory at Cornwall Motor Speedway. Oakes won two of three ODLM races on the weekend.
Chris Ross of Wallaceburg, Ontario, ran second most of the way but couldn't keep up with Oakes while Adam West of Ridgetown, Ontario, was third. John Lobb of Frewsburg, N.Y., and Gregg Haskell of Chatham, Ontario, rounded out the top five.
