Motovan has agreed to a two-year deal with the CSBK tour, becoming the official powersports partner of the national championship road racing series for the next two seasons. Mopar CSBK recently announced that the series’ feature races will be shown on TSN, The Sports Network, in 2016.

One day after dealing with blazing heat and some great racing, the Flat Track Canada travelling road show was at it once again. Sunday saw the group head to Wheatley to race at the short track on the Erie Ramblers club grounds. Long regarded as one of the most unique and coolest tracks around, the Wheatley track is always fun and Sunday certainly didn't disappoint.
After some of them riding 750's the night before, the Experts went to smaller displacement machines for the short track. Although the bikes were smaller the thrills were huge as once again the best riders in Canada put on a great show for the fans. Making a rare appearance on his beautiful 450 framer it was Doug Lawrence, making up for the night before, who came away with the win in Open Expert. Early leader in the race was Chris Evans but unfortunately for Evans he slid out in corner two shortly after Lawrence got by him. Local ace Nick Wenzler had a strong ride through the pack to finish second while new points leader Tyler Seguin took home third. A surprising non-factor in the final was reigning number one Don Taylor who had looked like a man on a mission in his heat race bouncing off the wall on the back straight while going for the win.
Rookie Expert Dave Pouliot surprised perhaps everybody except himself in taking the win in Expert DTX. While the others behind him were sliding and bobbing, Pouliot looked smooth and fast on his way to his first Expert victory. Taylor was a factor in this race as he grabbed second while Wenzler was once again in the mix and was able to grab third. Congratulations Dave!
Intermediate once again belonged to Brodie Buchan as he grabbed both wins to go four for four on the weekend. Track knowledge, skill, and great starts went a long way for Buchan and he just couldn't be caught. Braden Vallee and Cody Marentette swapped positions from the night before with Vallee grabbing second in both races after having to make up ground from some harrowing starts.
The Novice class was dominated for the second day in a row by the trio of Dustin Brown, Trent Pickle and Luke Rahm. Finishing order was the same in both races as Pickle found himself sandwiched between Brown and Rahm on his home track.
Boyd Deadman proved to be the master of the light on Sunday grabbing the holeshot in both 85 Youth and Novice 250 action. While unable to hold the lead until the end in both races, Deadman did have a couple of great rides to finish second to Hunter Bauer with Jimmy McCullough rounding out the top three.
VET action saw Steve Ball, winner from the night before, take a hard tumble in turn three after making contact with Rob Churchill. With Ball out of commission, Churchill was able to grab the checkers ahead of Dan Doreen and Windsor firefighter Paul Renaud.
A special thanks to all the Erie Ramblers and Flat Track Canada crew for putting on such a great weekend in such extreme temperatures. Bravo !
