It will be another short report this week, due to the on going treatment of my Myasthenia Gravis.
My week started on Tuesday 6th Aug, with the first session of Apheresis at the hematology department of the Ottawa General Hospital, followed by further appointments on Thursday 8th Aug and Tuesday 13th Aug.
In between all that I did manage to get to a a couple of events.
On Friday 9th Aug, I had an early morning phone call from my buddy, Ron Morin, the former owner of the Cornwall Motor Speedway, and now there in the position of ‘Track Prep’ guy.
Renowned Dirt and NASCAR racer Kenny Schrader was there, giving a group of specially invited guests, the experience of solo driving one of his race cars, and getting a ride in the two seater.
I was there for the start and took a few pictures .
Unfortunately I left the track before the end of the event, and missed Ron doing a few laps, as well as Claudette Lavergne ( one of the present track owners) having a ride in the two seater.
I once again took a night off from racing on Saturday, deciding to take things easy during my treatment.
On Sunday night I was back again at mylocal Cornwall Motor Speedway for a show where Late Models replaced the Pro Stocks on the program.
I was still taking things at a slower pace, so decided before I even got there, that I’d leave once the Modifieds were done.
I’m not a big fan of the local Late Model scene, but these guys put on a pretty good show.
Winner was Steve Baldwin.
The Modified feature was next, and one interesting aspect of this, was the return of Stephane Lafrance in the # 87 car.
As for the race, it was a great joy to see my good friend Corey Wheeler take the checkers in this.
I believe it was his first Feature win of 2019
After I got my Victory Lane pictures, Ron Morin whisked me back to my car on his golf kart, and I was on my way home.
In my abssence, it was Moise Page in the # 66 that took the Sportsman Feature.
Monday was a day of rest around the home preparing for my third session of Apheresis in Ottawa on Tuesday.
