Dwayne Baker, driving the No.48 Baker Performance Plus/Zancor Homes, utilized the final restart of the evening to make a lap 47 pass by Shane Maginnis (No.03 Budd's GMC) to win his second OSCAAR Super Late Model feature of the season at Sunset Speedway.
Baker, who won earlier this season at Sunset as part of the Don Biederman Memorial, started outside the front row for the 50-lap main event. The Stayner, Ont. based driver ran most of the night in second, until he was finally able to get my Maginnis, who held the lead for most of the night, with three laps to go.
Despite holding off Baker on numerous restarts in the final six laps, Maginnis fell three laps shy of his first OSCAAR victory of the season. Maginnis would finish third after Jeff Hanley (No.70 Raylene Racing) slipped past the No.03 with two to go, but the veteran driver was more than satisfied with his result.
The race was a war of attrition, with a total of 13 caution periods for the 21-car field.
The OSCAAR Super Late Model tour returns to action next Saturday August 3 at Peterborough Speedway as part of the Chase for the Colours for the first of three trips to the 1/3-mile oval in 2013.
The top two finishers in the event will be locked in to the front row for the Autumn Colours Classic.
