Jody Jamieson of Canada was the winner of the World Driving

Championship at Yonkers Raceway on Friday, besting a field of nine

other drivers from around the world.

It was the second championship for Jamieson, who also won in

2001.

The tournament began July 31 at Harrah’s Chester outside

Philadelphia, moved to Tioga Downs and Monticello Raceway in New

York, as well as The Meadowlands in New Jersey, before the

concluding card at Yonkers.

Jamieson beat Corey Callahan, representing the US and Juan

Antonio Riera-Rossello of Spain, who was third.

”All of us in harness racing, we have extreme high and extreme

lows and I’ve experienced that to the max this week,” said

Jamieson, who had five winners in the last two legs of the

tournament. ”I got so lucky to get good horses and I can’t tell

you how pumped I am to be the World Driving Champion. I couldn’t be

prouder.”
