It’s the prelude to the Hot Shoe 100 and the second annual Baby Shoe is in the books at Kinross Speedpark.

After running the third best qualifying time at 14.254 seconds, Steven Ulman won the event, earning a spot in the Hot Shoe 100 later this summer at the track.

The Hot Shoe 100, which brings with it a first-place price of over $10,000 had many drivers making the trip to Kinross to try to earn a spot in the event, including Ulman.

The Baby Shoe featured 22 modified cars, including a handful from the Ontario side of the border.

Among the Canadian entries in the event were Dustin Jackson, who finished fifth, and Jay Palumbo, who finished eighth.

It was a good day for John Carter in the ABC Stock division as the Sault driver picked up a heat win while also winning the A Feature in the division.

A pair of Sault products took second and third in the B Feature as Brad Bibeau, who finished second in a heat race, took second and Daniel Bibeau took third.

Sault Ste. Marie’s Keenan Spurway was the fast qualifier in the division with a time of 14.777 seconds.

Todd Nyberg won the B Feature.

Rebecca Fewchuk, who entered the weekend on the heels of a third-place feature finish and four-car dash win as well as being the fast qualifier two weeks earlier, finished second in the Four Cylinder feature behind John Weinman.

Rob Wagner was the fast qualifier with a time of 16.990 seconds.

Fewchuk also won the dash in the division over the weekend.

The next event at Kinross is July 27 while the Hot Shoe 100 is scheduled for the weekend of Aug. 8 to 10.
