CORNWALL – After a two week delay due to rain events this month, the Cornwall Motor Speedway had its opening night Sunday.

The night was dedicated to former driver Marcel Lafrance, who died during the off season.

Defending champion Alexis Charbonneau won the mini-stock race.

The modified division was a format of three, 15-lap races as a tribute to Lafrance, and finishing points were not awarded. The overall winner was Brian McDonald. Segment leaders had been Carey Terrance, Louie Jackson Jr. and Brian McDonald.

In the sportsman, Cedric Gauvreau took the checkered flag.

The pro-stock division win went to Bruno Richard while the vintage car race saw winners Steve Billings in the main class and Pat Charland in the older-car class.
