HALIFAX, NS : After a bumper falling off in his heat race, Danny Chisholm (Canning) rebounded nicely to win his fourth victory of the 2019 Hydraulics Plus Bandolero Outlaw season. Chisholm was smooth, making moves early to put himself up front and was lights out on the final restart at the halfway point in the 15-lap feature. Colton Noble (Upper Nine Mile River) was second with Nathan Langille (Coldbrook) completing the podium. Dylan Dowe (Bedford) and Owen Mahar (Hubley) both came back from issues in the heat race to finish fourth and fifth in the feature.
Nate Singer (Kennetcook) was impressive in the heat race, taking home the checkered flag in the qualifier.
With Chisholm’s stumble in the heat, Noble actually gained points on the evening. Regardless of heat race finishes, Noble can lock down his second straight Outlaw title in Halifax with a podium feature finish on Finale Friday.

Chase MacKay (Bear Cove) captured his second career Hydraulics Plus Bandit victory on Friday night in an effort to close the gap on the championship battle heading into the season finale. MacKay started on the pole on the final restart with ten laps to go and established a gap over championship leader Gage Gilby (Enfield), holding it to the finish. Gilby finished second with Ayden Christensen (Windsor Junction) looking underneath the No. 25 on the final corner but would have to settle for third. Dawson Noble (Upper Nine Mile River) dug deep on the final lap to capture fourth ahead of Brooke Dowe (Bedford).
MacKay completed the sweep for the evening as the heat race winner. A top two feature finish, regardless of what happens in the heat race, would clinch the championship for Gilby on Finale Friday the 13th.
