By: Ashley McCubbin – Terry Woodley would battle hard the entire 25-lap feature at Sunset Speedway on his way to a 17th place finish. He would then make his first trip to Kawartha Speedway for Mini Stock Nationals, finishing 22nd.
Woodley kicked off Saturday night by finishing seventh in his heat, forcing him to run the b-main. Woodley would start mid-pack in the b-main and battled hard all race long, finishing sixth to qualify for the main event.
Per Sunset’s qualifying format, Woodley’s starting spot would be determined by a random Frisbee draw, which placed him in 10th starting spot. With the faster cars coming from deeper spots and a mix of three-wide action, Woodley would fall back to the 17th spot by the first caution at lap three.
Once the race went back green, Woodley would continue to fall back, running 20th at the halfway mark. Unfortunately, with five laps to go, Woodley would go a lap down to the leaders. In the process of the final half of the race, Woodley was able to gain back three spots to finish 17th overall.
Woodley then kicked off Sunday at Kawartha with a ninth in his first heat, followed by a eighth in his second heat. As a result, Woodley would start in the second half of the pack for the 35 lap feature, running 25th as of the first caution at lap 12. He would begin his climb, moving up to 22nd by the third caution, though dropped back to 24th with 10 laps to go. Woodley battled hard the final 10 laps, scoring a 22nd place finish against the best 31 cars in the province.
