Thomsen Stretches Lead With Semi-Pro Win

Kimster Recent Posts

Cody Thomsen is beginning to put the hammer down on the Semi-Pro Super Stock class as he survived a first lap melee in Saturday night’s final and raced to a dominating victory. The carnage in the second corner of the opening lap claimed top qualifiers Darrin Mees and Kyle Pallin, as well as class heavies Derek Ellis and Colby Crapo.

As Thomsen worked a clear track, Mike Bauer gave chase with East Coast Snocross regular Lincoln Lemieux in third. Lemieux would get by Bauer for second in the closing stages, while Friday night’s winner Kaven Benoit, who had to race his way in through the last chance qualifier, put in another strong run coming from deep in the field to finish fourth.

Sportech rider Andrew Carlson turned in the strongest performance of his rookie season as a semi-pro, avoiding the early traffic and scoring a well-deserved fifth. The final results helped pad the championship lead for Thomsen but also mixed up and tightened up the order in the remaining top five.
