Champions Crowned at UPIR Season Finale

After a rain soaked week in the Upper Peninsula, the crew at UPIR put together a spectacular track and readied themselves for a fantastic send off of the 2016 racing season.

In appreciation of the race fans, all concessions were marked down to $2 and fans even had a chance to take part in a UPIR first, the UPIR Ride Along Car! The lucky winner was Brenda Clark, who sat shotgun for 5 laps around UPIR. The excitement and smiles which came from Brenda were priceless! The fans also had a chance to win a UP Pendant donated by Richardson Jewelers, and bicycles and backpacks donated by Jim Cayer #81 Modified and Jonathan Pepin #V2 Street Stock.

As the final race of the 2016 season began, only #2 Matt Valiquette in the Modified division had secured a points championship. Five other divisions were still up for grabs and the night would prove to be one to remember.

In the Junior Micro Sprints, #11 Avry Corrigan only held an 8 point lead over #23 Brett Labre. The two driver would battle over second while chasing down the leader, #22 Elliot Corrigan. Racing came to a quick halt as #119 Brennan Swanson and #01 Cole Constantino collided and Swanson's car flipped hard. Thankfully both drivers walked away safely. After racing resumed, Elliot Corrigan would hold off a charging Labre and grab his first ever feature win. Avry Corrigan would finished 3rd and solidify his second consecutive Championship in the Junior Micro Sprint division.

In the Sportsman Micro Sprint division, #8 Logan Getzloff went on the sweep the night with a heat and feature win and snag the championship from #99 Dave Hosking and #58 Michael Ault.

Coming into the night, #21 Christian Groleau held a 25 point lead over #42 Matt Peterson, but Groleau would need the assistance of Jordan Ives to help him hold on to the top spot. Groleau was hospitalized a week prior due to an emergency appendectomy. Peterson did all he could to steal the championship away by winning his heat and the feature, but it wasn't enough as Ives wheeled the #21 to a solid finish and Christian Groleau would hold onto the 600 Micro Sprint championship.

The Street Stock's saw point leader, #01 Max Constantino battle hard to end the season with a win, but was contested by #V2 Jonathan Pepin and #5 Paul Wagner. Pepin went on the grab his first feature win of the year but Constantino finished with a strong third place and came home the champion in the Street Stock division.

#2 Matt Valiquette had a 69 point leader over #4 Pat Richer in the Modified division and had already locked himself into the top spot, but charged hard and finished the season off in style with a feature win.

In the Sport Four division , #79 Luke Vermote held a solid lead over his competition going into the final race. He battled his way through the pack for a top 5 finish and nabbed his first ever championship in the division. Meanwhile, #107 Craig Klotz would go on to win his first feature race of the season.
