Dery Does The Job At St-Eustache

ST-EUSTACHE, Quebec — Jean-Francois Dery found redemption with a huge victory at Autodrome St-Eustache Saturday night.

Dery had to fend off a challenge from former Serie ACT Castrol Champion Sylvain Lacombe, as well as a late-race charge from defending champion Patrick Laperle in third.

St. Jean Chrysostome’s Patrick Cliche took the early lead from veteran racer Claude Leclerc on lap ten of the 100 lap event, and dominated the next 23 circuits before defending champion Laperle was brought to his outside on a lap 33 caution flag. Laperle surged ahead of the field on the restart, looking well on his way to his second win in a row on the Serie ACT Castrol, but on lap 79 of the event Laperle had a fuel filler hose come loose and was forced to head down pit road.

Point leader Donald Theetge inherited the lead for the next five laps, until a heart breaking spin on lap 85 of the event during a hard fought battle with Dery for the win. Dery, after losing the point lead two weeks ago due to a rock coming through his radiator, vindicated himself and took home the victory.

David Michaud and Dany Trepanier came home fourth and fifth, respectively. Theetge recovered to finish sixth, and Patrick Cliche, Patrick Hamel, Stephane Descoste, and Jonathan Bouvrette completed the top 10.
