Lemieux & Ellis win at Halloween Classic

Lemieux & Ellis win at Halloween Classic

The 21st Annual Halloween Classic was hosted at its home track “The Gate” in Cleveland, Ohio. This race has gone back many years as the warm-up to the Cleveland Indoor Champs and has grown its own prestige over time. The event format was official practice on Friday with three qualifiers on Saturday and one qualifier on Sunday followed by the finals. This year’s race sold out at 220 entries in 90 minutes when the online sign-ups opened. This year it was considered the first race of carpet season for the US so it is fair to say that there was some big anticipation for everyone to get back to carpet racing.

Saturday was a long day with the three rounds of qualifying. The gate crew did a great job running the 99 heats. At the end of the day Paul Lemieux would sit in TQ in Touring Modified while Sam Isaacs grabbed the Touring 13.5T Stock TQ. In the Formula class Drew Ellis came out fastest and all three drivers would also hold on to the TQ positions after Sunday’s final qualifier. In the finals Paul Lemieux would be able to convert his pole position into a win to take the victory from runner-up Keven Hebert and third placed Andrew Hardman.
