Dave Johnson wins at Canadian on-road nationals

Dave Johnson wins at Canadian on-road nationals

The Canadian on-road nationals is Canada’s biggest on-road event held in the middle of Sea Way Mall in Welland Ontario. With well over 290 entries for touring car, VTA, 12th scale, and Mini, this is clearly the biggest event in Canada. US national champion and indoor champion Dave Johnson attended this event and ran the highly competitive 17.5 blinky touring car class as well as full blown open modified class. The VBC driver took TQ by 4 seconds over the other 89 entries in this class. In the main Dave got away to a good lead after 3 laps from current Canadian champion Philippe Gelinas who had got around Rob Say for 2nd place. Philippe would get within a second of Dave before the latter started to put together blistering laps to pull out to a 6 second lead over second place.
