Super Stock competitors made their first visit to Jukasa Motor Speedway during the Canadian Short Track Nationals weekend. The fifty-lap feature with $5,000 going to the winner attracted drivers from all over Ontario.

The Super Stock category includes a variety of makes and models from the ‘60s to the current year. The rules used in this class allow some suspension modifications and changes to the bodies. Most Street Stock cars retain the original steel bodies with plastic noses and fiberglass hoods. They are powered by a modified small block engine or crate motors from General Motors and Ford. This division is a popular ‘stepping store’ for those drivers who aspire to compete in the Pro Late Model category.

The race at Jukasa Motor Speedway, sponsored by Saugeen Shores Transmissions, saw thirty-nine competitors take the Starter’s green flag.

Thirty-nine drivers head down Jukasa Motor Speedway’s back straightaway on the pace lap. Starting on the pole is the Camaro of Andy Kamath. Sharing the front row with Kamrath is Kris Lawrence in the Ford Mustang. Scheduled to start behind these two were Ontario short track legend, Stompin Tom Walters and Brandon McFerran. Walters was required to start at the rear of the field after making adjustments to his car.
Andy Kamrath was the class of the field. In qualifying, Kamrath recorded a 20.647-second lap which gave him the pole position. The London Recreational sponsored Chevrolet Camaro led every lap - despite an opportunity for the competition to challenge him after the race’s only caution period on lap-thirty-three. For his efforts, Kamrath earned $5,000.
Just 0.293-seconds slower than the pole-sitter, Andy Kamrath was Kris Lawrence. Lawrence was driving the No. 28 Ford Mustang with backing from Kenesky. Unfortunately, he could not maintain the pace of the race leader, Kamrath and was in second place at the checkered flag. Unlike the drivers that finished behind him, Lawrence passed the post-race technical inspection.
After fifty-laps of racing, fifth place starter Gary Adriaensen crossed the finish line in third. Unfortunately, Adriaensen’s Chevrolet Camaro failed to complete the all-important fifty-first-lap – which is successfully passing through the tech shed. An issue with the rocker arms in his motor led to Adriaensen’s disqualification. Ninth fastest qualifier, Darrell Lake was also disqualified for the same reason.
The field was packed with a lot of talent. One driver that could be counted among this group was Pete Shepherd, III. Shepherd is competing in this year’s NASCAR Pinty’s championship and despite his limited participation in the past, he has five series victories to his credit. At Jukasa Motor Speedway, Shepherd drove the No. 88 Ford Mustang sponsored by 400 Transmission. He started fifteenth and finished fourteenth.
Benefiting from the disqualifications of Gary Adriaensen and Darrell Lake was Brandon Passer. Passer qualified the Simcoe Barge & Break Wall sponsored Chevrolet SS nineteenth quickest. Between qualifying and the race, he and his crew must have found some more speed. At the conclusion of the event, Passer was in fifth place but with the demise of Adriaensen and Lake, he grabbed the final spot on the podium.
The best looking Super Stock entry was the Dodge Challenger of Bancroft’s Tim Burke. The No. 99 Challenger was gridded twenty-third for the start of the feature. Burke who has backing from Lynval Contracting moved through the field and was in nineteenth place at the checkered flag.
Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame member, Stompin Tom Walters came out of retirement to compete in the Saugeen Shores Transmissions fifty-lap Super Stock event. Walters’ racing resume includes thirty-championships after forty-three years of competition. It appeared that he hadn’t lost his touch as Walters’ was third quickest in qualifying. Unfortunately, the No. 47 Pontiac Grand Prix failed to finish.
The top-three finishers for the Saugeen Shores fifty-lap event at Jukasa Motor Speedway. In the center is Andy Kamrath who captured the win and $5,000 driving the London Recreational Racing Chevrolet Camaro. To Kamrath’s right is the runner-up, Kris Lawrence. And, rounding out the top-three is Gary Adriaensen who would be disqualified after his Camaro failed the post-race technical inspection.
