Driver Kevin Cummings took the spotlight on closing day at Buffalo Raceway on Sunday afternoon (July 24) as he guided home five winners on the nine-race program.

Cummings was the two-time defending driving champion at Buffalo Raceway, but a broken arm in an off-track mishap early in the year put him on the sidelines for several months and thus eliminated his chances of a three-peat.

But Cummings managed to climb his way up the standings once he returned and finished in third-place with 95 victories despite his shortened year. Jim Morrill Jr. took the title with 131 wins.

On Sunday, Cummings started the day by directing Freaky Flyer to a $58.50 victory and followed that up with wins aboard Sea Deuce ($4.20), Western ($4.40), Catch The Wave ($3.50) and Babe In The City ($8.20).

Vintage Fenom and driver Denny Bucceri produced the biggest bomb of the day as the duo combined to produce an $80.50 win price.

David McNeight III had a driving double while Richard Roth had two training wins.

Buffalo Raceway also announced its award winners for the 2016 campaign. That Horse JD was selected the Pacer Of The Year, Noble Legend earned the Trotter Of The Year award, Morrill Jr. took Driver Of The Year honours while JD Perrin captured the Trainer Of The Year title.
