Despite a five-week stretch between races, the northern Ontario racers were ready to compete on a very snowy and chilly -29°C (-20°F) race track.
On a very tight supercross style track, which included a hair-raising 100-foot double, good starts were essential if a driver wanted to be in the front-runner mix. Butler and Hayden proved they were more than up to the task to finish in the top-five both days.
In the feature race on Saturday, Butler finished a barnstorming second while Hayden had to take satisfaction with fourth place at the checkered.
In Sunday’s feature race, Hayden pulled out all the stops to lead Butler to the finish line while the rest of the field battled some distance behind them for the remaining positions.
On the strength of 2-2 results, Butler claimed the overall for the weekend. Meanwhile, Hayden snared second overall, thanks to his 4-1 finishes.
After two rounds Butler holds down the lead position in the title hunt while Hayden sits comfortably in second place.
“Lee, Iain, and the team staff worked hard to deliver top results this weekend,” says team owner Andre Laurin. “We wanted to come out of there with 1-2 and we did. They had a strategy on how to get their points and it paid off.”
