Day said she didn’t think she was going to have a good night, as she suffered a flat tire on her race bike early in the night, but it was meant to be.

Day won Race 2 with Cold Shadow in 1:58.2 for owners Rebecca Geisel of Hanover and Shelley May of Walkerton, and Race 4 with Shes a star reporter in 1:58.1 for owner Wilbert Weatherall of Flesherton.
