BROCKVILLE, Ont. (October 14, 2023) – Night number two of the DIRT Outlaw Apparel/King Edward Auto Parts Fall Nationals saw another packed pit area and a packed grandstand at Brockville Ontario Speedway.
The Southern Ontario Sprints series held its season finale at Brockville, and Jordan Poirier was the dominant force early on, looking to join his uncle Steve as a Fall Nationals champion. Poirier led the way over Ryan Turner, Darren Dryden, Shone Evans and Matt Billings. Poirier was on autopilot, but Shone Evans was determined to get to the front; Evans was up to second on lap 15 and closing in on the leader.
A quick yellow bunched the field up for a final restart; when the green flew, Poirier got the jump he wanted and pulled away over the final laps to secure his first Fall Nationals 360 Sprint Car title. Shone Evans, Ryan Turner, Darren Dryden and Matt Tanner completed the top five.
Ryan Turner took the $100 Ackland Insurance Quick Time Award while Shone Evans earned the $150 Trailer Pros Canada Hard Charger Award.
Dylan Westbrook had already clinched the 2023 Southern Ontario Sprints championship before the season finale.
