Dery Stays Hot, Capitalizes in Riverside 150
Quebec City’s Jean Francois Dery dominated the field on the way to his second victory in a row in the Riverside 150 at Circuit Riverside Speedway in St-Croix, QC on Saturday, July 14. Dery battled all race long with hometown heroes Dany Trepanier and Patrick Hamel who came home second and third respectively. 
The first 75 lap segment of two was dominated early by St-Edouard, QC’s Trepanier who started from the second position. A lap 31 caution restart, however, brought Dery to the front of segment one. Trepanier battled back on the inside lane on lap 35, reclaiming the lead for eight more laps, until a lap 44 restart brought Dery to the front row once again. Dery took off once again on the restart, leading until Trepanier took the lead for good on lap 54. 

Segment 2 featured battle-scarred Karl Allard, who was involved in a nasty multi-car wreck in his heat, starting from the pole to develop a large advantage over the field. Hamel slowly reeled him in for the lead, and finally stole it from him on the outside lane after a lap 31 caution. Hamel stretched his lead until a hungry Dery had made his way through the field to Hamel’s back bumper. Dery took the lead for three laps on lap 64, but Hamel drove to victory in the second segment to claim third overall, just one point shy of Trepanier for second.  
Patrick Cliche made his way to fourth overall, and David Michaud battled back in the second segment to complete the top five. Steven Boissoneault was sixth, defending Champion Patrick Laperle fought through a series of flat tires to come home seventh, and Jonathan Bouvrette, Allard, and Steve Lesage rounded out the top ten. Point leader Donald Theetge suffered a blown engine in segment 1, ending his day with a nineteenth place finish.
The race was completed in 2 hours 2 minutes and 27 seconds, and was slowed by 13 cautions.
Dery has already been invited to the Bond Auto ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 22.
Several Quebec teams will be in action for the TD Bank 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, ME his Sunday, July 22. ACT Serie Castrol will resume at Autodrome St-Eustache in St-Eustache, QC on July 28.
