Szoke, the current circuit champion, won two of three races last weekend in a hat-trick at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ont.

“The day certainly didn’t start out very well, but everything went well so we knew we would be there and stay positive,” Szoke said in a press release after finishing sixth in the first race of the day.

“The depth of the field is so deep that there are about 10 guys fighting for the win in every race. So we’re just happy to get rid of the bad luck and get some wins for the fans. “

Szoke finished with a pair of thirds in the opening races of the season.

And, with his results from last weekend, he managed to close the gap between himself and series leader Alex Dumas to 30 points with two races remaining.

The series concludes at Calabogie Motorsports Park on September 17-18.

Szoke is the all-time leader of CSBK in terms of wins (78) and national championships (14).

Hear from top to bottom

David Hearn of Brantford sits tied after the first round of the Albertsons Boise Open from the Korn Ferry Tour.

At the time of going to press, with about half of the field still on the course, he was tied for 44th.

Hearn’s top nine included five pars, two birdies, a bogey and a double bogey. Circling one over par, the Brantford Golf and Country Club member had six pars, two birdies and a bogey on his back.

Hayden Buckley was the clubhouse leader after shooting a 64 of seven under par.

Hearn, a regular on the PGA Tour, competes in the last three events of the Korn Ferry Tour. He hopes to finish in the top 25 in the last three tournaments, which would improve his status on the PGA Tour.

Hearn starts the 10th hole at 3:03 pm Friday for his second round.
