Rounds five and six of the 2022 Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s were held at Ohsweken Speedway during the inaugural Pinty’s100 for the NASCAR Pinty’s Series. On Monday and Tuesday evenings, drivers competed in twenty-five-lap contests around the 0.375-mile dirt oval.

Twenty-four Action Sprint Tour competitors line up for the traditional ‘salute to the fans’ during the round five contest at Ohsweken Speedway. On the inside is the No. 19 of Mathieu Bardier; beside Bardier is Mike Bowman, scheduled to start on the inside of row two. Sharing the second row with Bowman is the No. 52 driven by Matt Billings. On the extreme right is Jason Dykstra, who is gridded beside Bardier.
After four rounds of the 2022 Action Sprint Tour Series, Mike Bowman had collected A-Main victories at Humberstone and Merrittville. Rounds five and six at Ohsweken Speedway would belong to Bowman. In Monday’s feature, Bowman was gridded third but jumped into an early lead and despite a late race red flag, he was never challenged for the win. Bowman repeated this performance the next day for his second victory.
Mike Bowman won the first of the two doubleheaders in a convincing fashion at Ohsweken Speedway. However, Darren Dryden was there to keep him honest on day two. Dryden drove the No. 12DD Action Sprint car with backing from Pudsey Pools & Landscapes and started the A Main in seventh. He ran with Bowman but wasn’t close enough to make the pass. Dryden also finished second on Monday but wasn’t as much of a threat.
Similar to Mike Bowman, Jacob Dykstra had two A-Main wins in 2022. Dykstra, who was the reigning series champion, was gridded on the outside of the front row for Monday’s event. Like the runner-up, Darren Dryden, he could not match the pace of Bowman and finished in the third position. Dykstra split his time between the Action Sprints and Knights of Thunder and could not start Tuesday’s race.
Brett Stratford’s visit to Ohsweken Speedway for the doubleheader event began on a high note. Stratford won the first heat race in the No. BS39 Action Sprint Tour prepared car. He was gridded in the seventh position for the A-Main and advanced to a fifth-place result. The next day, Stratford was fifth fastest in the second qualifying session. In the A-Main, he started tenth but was third at the checkered flag.
Matt Billings made the trip from Brockville to compete in rounds five and six of the 2022 Action Sprint Tour. In his first trip to Ohsweken Speedway, round three this year, Billings finished second in the A-Main after starting fifteenth. On Monday, he finished second in the heat race four and collected a fourth-place in the A-Main. The following day Billings was gridded eighth for the feature but finished ninth.
Title contender Lucas Smith was running fifth on Monday when he was involved in an incident with Joshua Hill. With a couple laps remaining, Hill spun in turn four and stopped. Smith arrived on the scene, making contact with Hill, causing extensive damage to the front of the No. 49L. Smith’s crew was able to repair the car and the next day, he started eleventh and charged up the race order for a fourth-place finish.
Two of the top three finishers for round five of the 2022 Action Sprint Tour at Ohsweken Speedway. Mike Bowman is standing on the left side and capturing his third series win of the season. Beside Bowman is Darren Dryden, who finished in the runner-up spot. Third place went to Jacob Dykstra. Dykstra was pulling double duty and chose to forgo the celebration to get prepared for the Knights of Thunder event.
