PORT COLBORNE, Ont. (July 30, 2021) – Jacob Dykstra took a home track win on Friday night at Humberstone Speedway in the first of two Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s events taking place during All-Canadian Championship weekend. The win was worth $1,500 thanks to Sundance Restaurant Services.

Curtis Gartly and Eric Gledhill made up the front row for the 25 lap A-Main, but the race was quickly halted for a crash in the first turn which took out Steven Beckett and Derek Miller. Following the red flag and another minor yellow flag, the race went green the rest of the way. Curtis Gartly led the first 15 laps, but row four starter Jacob Dykstra moved steadily through the field and made the winning move in traffic.

Allan Downey moved up to take the runner-up spot, followed by Gartly, Gledhill, and Brett Stratford. Dereck Lemyre, Terry Baker, Darren Dryden, Jesse Costa, and Lucas Smith rounded out the top ten. Heat race wins were claimed by Dereck Lemyre, Lucas Smith, Jacob Dykstra, and Allan Downey, while Johnny Miller won the B-Main.

The Action Sprint Tour will next be in action on Saturday, July 31 at Humberstone Speedway. Visit www.actionsprinttour.com and www.humberstonespeedway.com for more information.
