Zach Latimer Wrecked Out of Autumn Colours Classic

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.”

Zach Latimer Goes Through Spin Cycle at Sunset Speedway

INNISFIL, Ontario — Zach Latimer would compete in his first ever Canadian Legends Nationals this past weekend at Sunset Speedway, but it would not go smoothly as hoped.

Following Saturday’s qualifying, Latimer would start deep in the field for the first feature, and experienced a rough beginning as he was caught up in an incident with another driver on Lap 2. Restarting from the tail of the field, he would begin to make up some ground through the pack, though ran into trouble with a spin in turn four on Lap 20.

Restarting once again at the tail of the field, he’d begin to make up ground once again, crossing the finish line in the 17th position.

As a result, he would be forced to the run b-main ahead of the second main event, which he would score a ninth-place finish.

Starting 19th for the second feature, he would look to make his way forward, though would come together with a fellow driver in turn two on Lap 13. Restarting at the tail of the field, he’d make his way up to 17th before the feature was called at just 17 laps of 30 complete due to rain.
