BRIGHTON, Ont. (September 3, 2022) – Dale Curran was almost letter-perfect on Sunday night at Brighton Speedway, taking his first career Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s win during the second night of the Labour Day Classic weekend.

Curran drew the pole position for the 25 lap A-Main with Allan Downey to his outside. Curran fended off a lap one challenge from Downey and subsequently one from Mathieu Bardier. Curran later made contact with the front stretch wall, but otherwise ran the outside groove to perfection and successfully negotiated traffic.

The race went green-to-checkered without a stoppage in under six and a half minutes, and Jacob Dykstra ran out of time in his bid to catch Curran after starting in row four. Curran’s margin of victory was just over two seconds, with Dykstra settling for the runner-up spot. Bardier, Downey, and Austin Roes rounded out the top five.

The Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s will next be in competition at the Trailer Pros Canada Sprint Race Weekend at Brockville Ontario Speedway on Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10. Visit for more information.
