Cody McPherson completed his regular season and had his view set ahead on the Mr DIRT-CAR Sportsman Tour. After some success on the local 3 race Niagara swing of the Tour and a fine 3rd place finish at Super Dirt Week at Syracuse left the remaining event at Brockville Ontario Speedway was ahead in his path. Only a win would give him a chance in his run for the Sportsman title. McPherson came through with his only win of the Series. That win would be very substantial as he would eventually finish in tie with Martin Pelletier. Merrittville teammate Brandon Easey would finish 3rd in the series points battle. McPherson’s win in the finale at Brockville would be the end all tiebreaker that would put him on top of the DIRT-CAR Sportsman pedestal.
The 5th year St Catharines, Ontario pilot has made his third year in the Sportsman his best to date. Also part of McPherson’s 2012 resume will include Championships at his home tracks of Humberstone and Merrittville Speedways. McPherson’s accomplishments served notice as he took the Humberstone and Merrittville championships in 2 different rides. His Friday night home at Pt Colborne Ontario’s Humberstone was behind the wheel of the Brian Staff sponsorship along with McPherson Trucking Family owned ride taking home 3 wins. Cody’s Saturday night mount also tallied 6 wins at Thorold’s Merrittville Speedway at the controls of the Bobcat of Hamilton and Advantage Trailer Sales Lucky 7, Both of which are Bicknell chassied rides. Both of which had more talent than Luck!
McPherson also served notice on the DIRT-CAR Sportsman Tour. Competition came from many different drivers but some of his toughest came from Brother Tyler. Tyler picked up 3 wins in the same weekend at Ransomville, Merrittville and Humberstone Speedways in the Niagara swing of the tour. Along the Tour, C-Mac scorched the field with 3 top 5 finishes and 7 top 10s in his 8 Mr DIRT-CAR Tour Starts including 3rd at the “Moody Mile” in Syracuse.
The McPherson credits his success to Dad Guy, Mother Lori as well as Brothers Tyler and Josh for their assistance along the way and also the Ownership of the Gord McIntosh for creating a path to his most successful season to date. He will be honored soon at Merrittville’s upcoming Banquet at Port Robinson’s Club Castropignano October 27th. He will also pick up the Gold at the Humberstone Speedway Banquet November 11th at the Americana Resort and Spa in Niagara Falls Ontario. And he will also be led to the head of the DIRT-CAR class at the upcoming Banquet at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona NY at a date to be named later.
