Bergeron takes home the win at Lanier in the Sprint Cars!

Sunday, March 4, 2018 (Lanier Speedway) - Quebec Driver Alex Bergeron Racing continued his great form in the X.CELERATED Sprint Car Series presented by Dirt Collective with his first win of the season in Week 3. Bergeron held off challenges from Nick Cooper, Joel Berkley and Chris Brenner to get the victory at the third mile speedway.

Bergeron started on the pole after the turning the fastest qualifying time and weaving through the field of his heat to a transfer spot after the six car invert. Due to an admin error, Bergeron missed all of the warm-up session before the feature but was still able to take home the victory over the 22-car field.

Bergeron’s biggest challenge of the night came fromUWU Motorsports driver Chris Brenner through much of the race. Brenner was hot on the tail of Bergeron until an error on a late restart by fellow front-runner Joel Berkley caused Berkley to spin his tires and shoot down the track into an unsuspecting Brenner. This incident allowed series points leader and two-time race winner Nick Cooper a chance to pressure Bergeron, but the Canadian had more than enough speed to hold off Cooper’s attempts.

After the dust settled, Nick Cooper crossed the finish line in second, Jason Brown in third, Austin Matthews in fourth and Anthony LoPresto filled out the top five. 

Tommy Rowe takes home the Hard Charger award in the 410 sprints, slicing his way from 19th to 9th in the feature. Chris Brenner takes home the Team Friday Fast Lap award after turning a 12.459 on his second lap. (

In the 360 Sprints, Cody Olsen picks up the victory after starting third. Olsen edged out Kevin Loveys in second, Britton Roxberry in third, Kyle Scott and Devon Borden in fourth and fifth respectively. Shawn Wallenfelsz Jr. would take home the Dirt-All Access Hard Charger award in the 360 Sprints after moving from his 20th starting position to sixth.

The series will continue next Sunday night live on the Dirt Collective facebook page!
