INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 19, 2017) – Lemoore, California’s, Carson Macedo claimed victory over the border in Canada this weekend, winning the 13th Annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals presented by Arrow Express at Ohsweken Speedway. Macedo captured his 9th win of the 2017 season by edging out the No.79 of Jordan Thomas, and third-place finisher, the No.15h of Sam Hafertepe Jr.
“I ran the bottom in turns one and two pretty much the whole night,” explained Macedo. “The car handled great down there, so I just stuck with it. We got a win in one of the twin features the previous night, so we had a good idea what to expect for the big show. Joe Gaerte, Tim Norman, and Cindy Norman had the No.3G fast all weekend.”
The West Coast native took the heat race win over Mitch Brown, and earned a spot in the trophy dash.
Macedo started from the 4th position in the dash, quickly moved into 3rd on the start, and eventually passed Dustin Dagget for a 2nd place finish. Rolling off from the front row for the main event, Macedo would lay in wait behind pole sitter Sam Hafertepe Jr. for the majority of the race, before making his move with just 10 laps remaining. Macedo maneuvered his way around the No.15h of Hafertepe Jr. in lapped traffic, and went on to score a $12,000 pay day.
“During the feature I just maintained good speed, and followed Hafertepe for most of the race,” said Macedo. “I saw and opportunity in lapped traffic, and took it. I’m proud to get another win for the whole No.3G team.”
Macedo and Joe Gaerte Racing will be with the IRA Sprints September 23rd at Beaver Dam Raceway and the 24th at LaSalle Speedway. The event at LaSalle on Sunday is co-sanctioned with the Midwest Open Wheel Association and pays $5,000-to-win.
