Jake Exton fights back to place in the top five over the weekend
Exton finishes racing season third overall
Jake Exton went into the season finale at Mont Tremblant on a high after his win at Mosport. Starting third on Saturday Exton ran as high as second for the majority of the race, unfortunately a stop and go black flag penalty was issued four laps from the end of the race dropping him to 12. Upon rejoining the pack he drove the race of his life in those four laps and finished an amazing 5th.
The damage had been done by the black flag, but post race proved to a furious Exton that it had been deemed a racing incident and no penalty should have been given, unfortunately the decision did not change the result.
Sunday broke with a bang, highly motivated to prove himself, Jake put his car (the oldest in the series) on pole by breaking the lap record at Mont Tremblant. Having lost third place in the championship on Saturday he proved his ability and raced from green flag to chequered flag leading every single lap, promoting himself back to third overall in the championship.
A fantastic end to the season, Exton thanked both main sponsors Alf Bowser Contracting and Bob Hunter for their support during the year, stating he would not have been able to finish the season without their commitment. With the season over a series of firsts for an Ontario Driver, the first to win a race, the first to get a pole position (2) the winner of the 50th race in the series, the first Ontario driver to win a race in Quebec and finally the first Ontario driver to finish on the season podium (third overall).
