BREWERTON, NY – “Wow” was the word used by some fans in attendance last Friday night at the Brewerton Speedway that saw Larry Wight pick up his first ever Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modified feature win at the speedway.
Wight, who started 13th in the tough 26 car field was able to put his car in spots where others didn’t go, picking off cars till grabbing the lead on lap 21 in a bold move exiting turn four. Once in the lead, Wight drove away from the field putting cars a lap down till a late caution erased his lead setting up a shootout to the finish. When the green came back out, Wight wasn’t going to be denied as he was the first under the checkers for the popular win.
For his performance, Wight will receive $100 “NAPA Know How Performer of The Week” that is awarded weekly at both Brewerton and Fulton speedways to one driver that outperforms all others that week across all classes.
The new NAPA Brewerton and Fulton Speedway Racer Discount Card are again in place. Each active speedway competitor will receive a NAPA card that will provide discounted pricing on most racing related purchases throughout the 2012 race season. Drivers will need to sign up with speedway officials to be eligible for the program.
