Schwartzenburg Gets it Done at Flamboro

Source: Rev It Up Racing

The official halfway point of the 2019 season for the APC Series saw the tour return to Flamboro Speedway for the annual running of the LRR 100. 25 cars made the trip to the tight bullring, all with the common goal of reaching the top tier of the podium.

Group qualifying saw Ryan Kimball earn the quick time with a 15.057 bettering Jordan Sims and Jake Sheridan.

The full field of Pro Late Models roared to life with the sweet sound of engines and smell of VP Race Fuel filling the air as Junior Farrelly showed the way. Farrelly would lead the opening portion of the race with Danny Benedict following behind. Benedict would slip back to the eight position on lap 13 after finding himself on the high side and getting freight trained.

A long green flag run opened the race as Farrelly continued to show the way. Shae Gemmell moved into the top three on lap 34 and began to close the gap to second immediately. The first caution flag of the race came on lap 39 when Josh Stade went around in turn four. The caution offered teams their first opportunity to collect themselves and several drivers made their way to the pits for adjustments.

Treyten Lapcevich took the lead on the ensuing restart before the caution flag was shown again, this time for Patrick Freel coming to a stop with a flat rear tire. The restart saw more trouble as Gord Shepherd and Jo Lawrence tangled on the back straightaway and eventually crashed in turn three.

Once the race returned to green flag conditions, Treyten Lapcevich would continue to work the field and show the way at an impressive pace. 48 laps into the LRR 100 the caution would be displayed for the fourth time as Jo Lawrence went around off of turn two after having a severe tire rub for several laps prior.

At the halfway point in the race, there was big trouble as Jordan Sims locked up the brakes and slid into turn three, tagging Junior Farrelly. Several cars came to rest, however, most avoided any heavy damage and were able to continue.

After another long green flag run, the caution flag came out on lap 85 after Branden Verhoeven spun off of turn four. The restart saw Matt Pritiko slide back after contact, allowing Lapcevich to slip away once again. Shae Gemmell moved into second with Billy Shwartzenburg moving into third. Just a few laps later, on lap 87, Jordan Sims went around to bring out the seventh caution. Lap 93 proved to be troublesome as the caution came out for several cars tangling. On the lap 93 restart, Shae Gemmell went hard into the turn three wall, destroying his race car while running in the runner-up position.

The final caution came on lap 97 when Branden Verhoeven found himself against the turn four wall. The restart saw Billy Schwartzenburg stick his #86 to the high side and cleanly pass Treyten Lapcevich. Lapcevich attempted the bump and run in the final corner and got under Schwartzenburg, setting up a drag race to the checkered flag. Billy Schwartzenburg would beat Lapcevich by a nose to score his first ever APC Series win. Ryan Kimball would round out the podium with a third-place result.

The APC Series will head back to Jukasa Motor Speedway on Thursday, July 25th for round six on the 2019 tour. Racing icon Kenny Wallace will race with the APC Series in what is a must-see event on the calendar. More information can be found on www.APCRacingSeries.com

Source: Junior Hockey Network

Nine coaches have been selected to lead Team Canada East and Team Canada West at the 2019 World Junior A Challenge, scheduled for December 7th – 15th at the Encana Events Centre in Dawson Creek, British Columbia.

Martin Dagenais (Embrun, Ont./Ottawa, CCHL) makes his return to Team Canada East as head coach, having previously served as an assistant coach at the 2016 and 2017 World Junior A Challenges, winning a silver medal in 2017. Dagenais will be joined by assistant coaches Corey Beer (Oshawa, Ont./Timmins, NOJHL), who assisted Team Canada East at the 2018 World Junior A Challenge, Greg Leland (Quispamsis, N.B./Campbellton, MHL), who has served as an assistant coach for Team Atlantic at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge four times (1998, 2002, 2008, 2011), and Dan Sauvé (Ottawa/Rockland, CCHL), who will make his international coaching debut.

For Team Canada West, Joe Martin (Kingston, Ont./Alberni Valley, BCHL) makes his return to the World Junior A Challenge for the third-consecutive year, taking over as head coach after serving as an assistant for the past two years, winning gold in 2017 and bronze in 2018. Martin will be joined by assistant coaches Mike Vandekamp (Fort St. John, B.C./Cowichan Valley, BCHL) and Scott Barney (Oshawa, Ont./Humboldt, SJHL), who will make their international coaching debuts. Clayton Jardine (Lacombe, Alta./Camrose, AJHL), who suited up for Team Pacific at the 2008 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, will support the team as video coach, while Allen York (Wetaskiwin, Alta./Camrose, AJHL), who won a gold medal with Team Canada West at the 2007 World Junior A Challenge and represented Canada at the 2013 Spengler Cup, will serve as goaltending coach.

“The coaches selected to lead Team Canada East and Team Canada West bring a combination of Junior A and international experience as players and coaches, and represent the level of talent in the coaching ranks in junior hockey in Canada,” said Brent Ladds, Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) president. “It’s exciting to see our coaches moving into new roles with the two Canadian teams at the World Junior A Challenge and to welcome coaches who are new to international competition. We believe this year’s coaching staffs for both teams will benefit the players selected to participate, and bring their international experience back to their club teams.”

The CJHL also announced that Mark Grady (Halifax, N.S.) has been named director of operations for Team Canada East. Grady, who won bronze in 2007 as an assistant coach and silver as head coach in 2008, will make his fourth appearance with Team Canada East. Jamie McCaig (Edmonton, Alta./Alberni Valley, BCHL) will move into the role of director of operations for Team Canada West after serving as a goaltending coach for the past two years, winning gold in 2017 and bronze in 2018.

Dawson Creek will host the World Junior A Challenge for the first time, and the local host committee will look to continue its historic success with Hockey Canada events. The city most recently hosted Canada’s National Women’s Team Fall Festival in September 2018, as well as the 2015 and 2017 World Under-17 Hockey Challenges, and 2012 National Women’s Under-18 Championship.

The 2019 World Junior A Challenge represents a partnership between Hockey Canada, the CJHL, B.C. Hockey, NHL Central Scouting, and the local host committee. The international showcase features two Canadian teams – Team Canada East and Team Canada West – along with the Czech Republic, Russia, and the United States.
