Jordan Latimer Fights Through Contact for Top-10 at Sauble Speedway

SAUBLE BEACH, Ontario — Despite being right in the midst of the action at Sauble Speedway last weekend, Jordan Latimer was able to come out of there with a top-10 finish.

Putting down a lap of 15.849 seconds in qualifying, Jordan Latimer was able to qualify in the third spot. However, with an invert in-place, he would start the 50 lap feature from the fifth position. Off the drop of the green flag, he was able to move up into fourth, remaining there until the first caution at Lap 6.

Restarting in the second row, he once again moved up a position, now up to third, remaining there until the caution just before the halfway mark at Lap 21. Battling side-by-side for second on the restart, Latimer cleared Todd Davenport, but was passed back shortly thereafter, ultimately falling fading back to fourth by the next caution at Lap 26.

Restarting on the second row, he’d battle with Davenport once again, this time for fifth, avoiding contact ahead of him to remain in contention. He wasn’t so lucky on the restart, as when the leaders made contact ahead, he was hit from behind, spun right into the midst of the action, resulting in damage to the door of the No. 90 Super Stock. Latimer was able to keep going, though now scored back in 10th.

Restarting on the fifth row, he avoided another incident ahead of him, utilizing the close quarter action to move up to seventh before the next yellow with seven laps to go. Restarting on the fourth row, he’d move up another spot to sixth before yet another caution.

The final restart he was unable to make up anymore ground, ultimately crossing the finish line with a seventh-place finish.

Thank you to Craig Ellis and the sponsors for the opportunity, as well as the rest of the team for their hard work all day long.

Jordan Latimer Takes Flight at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest

MILGROVE, Ontario — Jordan Latimer was headed for a strong run in the second feature at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest, when he’d take flight after contact on the frontstretch ending his night early.

Latimer started off the afternoon by qualifying ninth for the first 50-lap feature, dropping back a couple spots in the opening laps of the feature. He’d quickly begin to make up lost ground, returning to the top-10 by Lap 10, before involving an incident ahead of him to move up to ninth.

Restarting on the fifth row at Lap 34, he’d hold off the challengers around to cross the finish line eighth in the first feature.

Starting sixth for the second feature following an invert of the lead lap cars, he’d make contact in the early stages of the event with Dennis Cybalski while battling for third.

Restarting at the tail of the field, he’d look to move back forward when contact on a Lap 11 restart with a fellow competitor sent Latimer’s nose up in the air, before coming down hard and the No. 90 Super Stock sliding through the turn one grass. Latimer was uninjured, but that unfortunately brought an end to his Frostoberfest chances, credited with a  16th-place finish in the second feature.

As a result of the extent of the damage, Latimer will be unable to participate in this weekend’s Autumn Colours Classic at Peterborough Speedway. The team will still be in attendance with Zach Latimer behind the wheel of his Ontario Legends Series entry.

Jordan Latimer Sees Velocity Weekend Cut Short by Mechanical Issues

INNISFIL, Ontario — After entering the Velocity 250 with confidence, things would not pan out as Jordan Latimer hoped.

He would start off the event strong, finishing fifth in his first heat. Though before the second qualifier, the team would run into mechanical issues that required their attention. They would work hard to try and have the car ready, just missing the green flag for the second qualifier.

The issues would remain, though, ultimately ending their weekend early without a chance to run Sunday’s feature.

Zach Latimer Shows Speed Before Mechanical Issues at Sunset Speedway

INNISFIL, Ontario — Racing his way into the top-10 in the Ontario Legends Series feature, Zach Latimer showed speed prior to mechanical issues taking him out of the running.

Continuing to gain experience as a rookie, Latimer took part in Sunset Speedway’s Friday practice prior to the Velocity 250 weekend, finding some speed late in the night. That carried over into Saturday, with Latimer being 14th quickest out of 35 cars at the end of the second session, just three tenths off of the leader.

The confidence showed in his first heat as he was able to score a fourth-place finish. He then ran up front once again in the second qualifier, running second until the car developed a loose condition off of the exit of the corner. Despite the ill-handling condition, he held on to finish sixth.

Starting 14th in the feature, he would make his way forward in the beginning stages, escaping the early incidents to break into the top-10. He was up to the eighth position by Lap 8, when the mechanical issues would strike.

“Off the restart, the drive shaft came loose due to the output shaft on the motor coming loose, ending our night early,” he said. “We were in the road to a top 10 finish for sure.”

Jordan Latimer Runs into Mechanical Issues at Sunset Speedway

INNISFIL, Ontario — Showing a lot of speed for the second straight appearance, Jordan Latimer would fail to finish the feature as a result of mechanical issues.

Latimer started off the night well, making a three-wide move during his first heat en route to scoring a second-place finish, just mere inches behind the race winner. He then backed it up with a fifth-place finish in the second qualifier.

Starting ninth in the feature, he began to make his way forward, moving up into the sixth spot by the ninth lap. However, his strong run came to an end on Lap 15 when he slowed with a mechanical problem. It turned out that a wiring issue would keep the No. 90 from contending on Saturday night.
