Can-Am on the Sovereign – 5/7/19


John Weaver and Ernie “The Ernstigator” LaChance joined seven MVH regulars to run Can-Am on the 220’ American Purple Mile this week. There were just enough drivers to cover the corners and race four lanes at a time in the 4/4 format.


Cars in Tech:



Weaver jumped out to an early lead and never looked back as his best lap time was almost a full 3/10ths faster than anyone else in the field. The fight of the night was for the other two podium positions as Ray Lee, Bob “Woody” Hazelwood, Richard Payne, The Ernstigator and Rich Girvin were all in the hunt. At the change to the inside lanes, Weaver was leading the field by 8 laps with a 94 lap total. Ray and Woody had both posted 88 and were followed closely by Richard P (87), Ernie (86) and Rich G (85). In 7th, Tom Smith logged 82 laps to Dan Savage’s 79 and Wayne Secore’s 72.


The race for the bottom two podium positions heated up after the move as Ray pulled away from Woody while Ernie was able to improve on his first half total, ultimately beating Woody by just 3 track sections to the final step on the podium. Dan and Tom had the other close race of the night as Dan slipped past Tom to take 7th by 10 track sections. Weaver won by a more-than-comfortable 10-lap margin.


Weaver also claimed the fast lap of the evening while Woody’s 2nd fastest time was only good enough for 4th place. The Ernstigator drove well as his 5th fastest time got him to the podium.
