FULTON, NY – If you’re looking for a night of family, affordable fun with high speed racing excitement, the Fulton Speedway is the place for you this Saturday.
With last week’s rainout we still are honoring the memory of Kevin Ward Jr. this Saturday. Everyone please wear orange to support the Ward family and friends.
On the action packed race card presented by Burke’s-Do-It-Best Home Centers night is the Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modifieds, SUNY Canton Sportsman, NAPA Late Models, E&V Energy Novice Sportsman, A-Verdi Storage Containers 305 Sprints, Hilton’s Automotive Four Cylinders plus the Pro Race Cars Mod Lites.
After Mother Nature won the race program last Saturday with heavy rains blanketing the area late in the afternoon, points are critical now with only two point-paying races left to decide the 2014 track champions.
Two weeks ago in the Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modifieds Chris Hile put his family owned team in victory lane in front of a cheering crowd. For Hile it was his second career big block modified win at the speedway.
Coming into August 9, Larry Wight and Jimmy Phelps were in a tight point’s race sitting in the top two spots. In the 35-lap feature Wight had power steering issues ending his feature run. Jimmy Phelps was involved in a multi-car accident that sent his car to the pits for the night.
Top Five in the Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modifieds – Larry Wight (587) – Billy Decker (572) – Jimmy Phelps (551) – Pat Ward (528) – Rob Bellinger (524).
Tony Finch II shook off some recent bad luck by winning the 25-Lap SUNY Canton Sportsman feature on August 9. Finch held off a last lap furious challenge from Jeremy Dygert for his first win of the season. Ron Davis III was able to get by Dygert on the final corner to finish second and take the points lead.
Beth Schneider came into that Saturday as the point’s leader. During the feature she dropped out early with what would be discovered during the week as water in the racing fuel.
Top Five in the SUNY Canton Points – Ron Davis III (613) – Mike Button (592) – Beth Schneider (590) – Tony Finch II (577) – Corey Barker (525).
The ‘Mongoose’ AJ kingsley did something in the NAPA Late Models that not many have done, beat Tim Sears Jr. when he is in the lead during a feature. Kingsley not only got by Sears, he dominated the race once in the lead. Over the second half of the season Kingsley is the hottest driver in the division. For the season he has 5 feature wins, 11 top fives, 13 top tens in 13 starts.
Top five in the NAPA Late Models – AJ Kingsley (712) – Tim Sears Jr. (710) – Brandon Ford (546) – Johnny Hill (474) – Dave Talbot (468).
In the A-Verdi Storage Containers 305 Sprints John Cunningham got back on the winning track by winning his sixth feature by out-running Sprint Car veteran Gordy Button.
In the last 15-Lap E&V Energy Novice Sportsman feature run, Trevor Lindsey looked to be heading to a dominate win. In the late going Shannon Pitcher, without the aid of a caution to tighten the field up, ran Lindsey down from almost a straightaway behind for the impressive win.
After winning his 70th career Brewerton Speedway four cylinder feature on August 8 Powelczyk came back Saturday night winning his sixth feature of the year at the Fulton Speedway.
Top Five in the Hilton’s Automotive Four Cylinders- Chuck Powelczyk (578) – Justin Buske (538) – Skip DeGroff (526) – Mark Johnston (496) – Keith Zirbel (494).
