Once again it has been proved that age does not matter in sports. Sheldon Creed, a young lad of just 15 years have dominated the ultimate 6 laps of the Honda Indy that was held in Toronto. He is from Alpine, Calif. Have a view of some of the main events of the race.
The weather of the place was amazing even on the second day of the race. The whole race took place in the temporary constructed stadium that is known by the name Speed Energy Stadium. This was the round eight of the competition.
The line of round 8 was determined by inverting the completion times of round 7 that was held on Saturday. Paul Tracy, who is a native of Toronto, started the race from the pole position.
As soon as the green flag gave the signal the Tracy took a good move to come to the leading position. He was driving a SportsNet truck. But he has to give up the lead within a short time as he was overtaken by Jones. He was driving the powerful American Racing Wheels truck. Tracy gave up the fierce battle soon and settled in the behind Jones.
Creed raced steadily and managed to leave behind Jones in the third lap. He took the help of the jump section in the 1.75 mile course. Jones tried to apply constant pressure by banging the back of the Traxxas truck that Creed was driving.
As a result of this both the drivers came to the verge of losing the con tact of their cars very often. But eventually they were able to regain their position without stopping the race. A a result the front side of Jones’ truck was heavily damaged. This forced him to come out of the track to get the truck repaired.
This was his first victory in the super trucks category. The best thing about his victory is that it came in a convincing fashion.
