Daniel Hovey takes the main event and top points at the Tri-Port Speedway.

PORT HARDY— A smaller-than-usual field took nothing away from the action at the first of two make-up days for rained-out events at the Tri-Port Speedway.

An initial field of five was reduced by one when Brock Shore blew his transmission, with the remaining four drivers left to fight for the points.

Daniel Hovey took the fast time for the day while Glen Day took the Trophy dash. The pair battled for the top spots all day as Day took the first heat, holding off Hovey, Justin Reusch and Ryan Doyle respectively.

The second heat saw Hovey get revenge, beating Day to the top spot while Reusch and Doyle again chased the pair.

The main event proved to be a repeat of the second heat with the race finishing Hovey, Day, Reusch, Doyle, with the day’s points total in the same order.

Day retained his grasp on the season’s point lead and Hovey’s strong racing moved him to just six points behind Reusch’s second place total. Doyle’s points haul moved him to fifth for the season.

There will be one more make-up event at the Speedway to cap off the North Island stock car season, to be held Sunday, September 30.
