    It was a day late after Mother Nature rained down on Saturday delaying the John's Equipment Danny Reid Memorial and the McDougall Financial and Insurance Great Crate Race but that didn't deter Ryan Scott of Kingston, Ontario as he picked up $2000 and his first Danny Reid Memorial Trophy in three tries. Chuck Myers from New York, New York picked up his first ever win at Brighton Speedway to take home the $5000.00 pay day in the 2nd Annual Great Crate Race driving #25 Greg Belyea's backup car. Over 30 Late Models were in attendance for the rain date event! The sun shone down on the Sunday Afternoon and it wasn't long before the track blackened over and slicked off for this day time race. The track was dusty during the heats but with some maintenance at intermission it was all fixed up for the feature.
    The John's Equipment Danny Reid Memorial would hit the track and it was last week's winner #46 Warren Mowat and #33 Ryan Scott who had drawn the front row starting spots and from the green it would be Scott who jumped out to the lead with Mowat in tow. Scott would manage to stretch out his lead and the battle would heat up behind him as Mowat would battle it out with #11 Dan Ferguson , #87 Andrew Hennessy and the #76 J.J. Courcy. Scott would come up on lapped traffic and the group behind him would close in on him with Mowat actually looking underneath Scott in turn one a few times but could not get the pass done and Scott would open up the lead again for a few laps while the rest battled behind him. During a late race restart Mowat would make the contact with the wall and Hennessy would make a diving move into turn one to try and get by Scott that sent him spinning, sending Mowat to the pits and Hennessy to the back. On the restart Scott would once again pull away as Ferguson and Courcy were now chasing him with Ferguson making a charge on the last few laps but Scott would hang on to win his second ever feature at Brighton Speedway and his first Danny Reid Memorial. "This is the biggest win of the year" said Scott in victory lane. Last year's winner Ferguson would settle for the runner up position and Courcy from Mexico, New York who had dropped as far back as 11th earlier in the race recovered for a top three podium finish. Heat wins went to Scott, Ferguson and #84 Wally Alderdice.
    By the time the Late Models had hit the track for the McDougall Insurance and Financial 65 lap Great Crate Race the track had taken on rubber from the Modified feature and was once again racy from top to bottom. Twenty five cars took the green flag and #11 Corey Earl took off for the early lead over #R19 Dale Caswell of West Munroe, New York and Earl would lead the first 7 circuits around the track until the two came up on lapped traffic and Earl got caught up just slightly and Caswell wasted no time taking advantage. Caswell would lead the next 41 circuits until his tires would start to go away on him and the #28 of Chuck Myers would make his way past the 11P of Jordan Peters, Earl and Caswell to take the lead on Lap 48. The race had a number of cautions and was now into single file restarts. Earl would be all over Myers on a lap 54 and lap 57 restart but Myers continued to be strong late in the race while Peters would apply pressure to Earl for second. At lap 65 it was Myers who crossed the line first taking his first ever feature win at Brighton Speedway in only his second start of the season. "I would have never believed after the Qualifiers how good this track came in. It rubber'd up and was real fast for most of this race! We fell way back early on and I thought we were going to be in trouble but this Excel Tower Service Rocket came in and we were on rails" said Myers in victory lane. Earl was able to hold off Peters for third who was also holding off his father #1P Darren Peters who crossed the line forth ahead of rookie late model driver #5 Steve Baldwin rounding out the top five. Heat wins went to Myers, Earl, #3T Tim Sears Jr, and #98 of Rick Miller
    In the Bill's Johns Comp 4 it was #10 Travis Mclean taking home his first ever feature win and #06 Steve Wells won the Quinte Septic Stinger event.
