GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alberta — 19 year-old Jamie Krzysik continued his complete dominance over the IMCA Modifieds at Edmonton International Raceway, snaring his fourth win of 2010.
Krzysik is a member of the Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle driver development program based in Sacramento, Calif. He was the 2009 IMCA Canadian Rookie of the Year and is currently in the running for the championship in 2010.
In time trials, Krzysik timed in third quick with a time of 15.27 seconds.
Krzysik was unable to win either of his heat races, but finished strong in the first heat with a third place effort. The second heat race saw Krzysik make a quick move to the front only to be freight trained the rear. He made up some ground before the finish and came home fifth.
Krzysik started second in the 25 lap feature and challenged for the lead before the caution came out on lap five.
For the next 15 laps, the top-three cars ran nose-to-tail with Krzysik maintaining second. At the line with four laps to go, Krzysik moved to the outside and ran side-by-side with the leader.
A lap and a half later, Krzysik broke through and cruised to the checkers for the victory.
Krzysik unofficially leads the points at both Edmonton International Raceway and in the overall IMCA Canadian Championship.
Krzysik will take a break before returning to racing for Ron Sutton’s Winner’s Circle Ford Focus Midget team on July 17 at Stockton 99 Speedway in Stockton, Calif.
“Another great run for Jamie before he gets back into a Midget,” said driver coach Ron Sutton. “I am very optimistic that he can be in contention for the race win in July!”
