FULTON, NY – This Saturday, July 18, the Fulton Speedway will roar to life when the Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility will present a night of action-packed racing for fans of all ages at family, affordable prices where adult grandstand admission is only $12 with everyone 18 years old and younger is free.
The night of racing will start off with the holdover from July 11 NAPA Late Model, E&V Energy Novice Sportsman and Hilton’s Automotive Four-Cylinder features. After that it will be a full race card of heats and features for the Tracey Road Equipment Modifieds, SUNY Canton Sportsman, Late Models, Novice Sportsman and Four-Cylinders qualifying and features.
Due to the night full of racing the Jr. Fan Club Bike Giveaway has been moved to July 25.
Here is a recap from the July 11 racing and a look at the top five divisional point standings.
Tracey Road Equipment Modifieds – One of the most popular drivers with fans in the stands finally got a big feature win. Jimmy Phelps, who always seems to be knocking on the door for a feature win, kicked the door open last Saturday. Phelps took the lead in the 35-lap feature on lap 10 and never looked back for his first Fulton win of the season.
TOP FIVE POINT STANDINGS – Billy Decker 468. Larry Wight 429. Danny Johnson 408. Jimmy Phelps 398. Pat Ward.
SUNY Canton Sportsman – There is nothing better than a first time winner in victory lane. That’s exactly what Wade Chrisman did in the 25-lap feature. Chrisman took the lead on lap 7 and held off a furious late race challenge from defending track champion Ron Davis III for his popular first ever feature win.
TOP FIVE POINT STANDINGS – Tony Finch II 424. Mike Button 410. Bill Clark Jr. 402. Ron Davis III 387. Jeremy Dygert 379.
The NAPA Late Models had their July 4th holdover feature and just like the Sportsman a first time winner graced victory lane. Jason Occhino in just his rookie season coming into Saturday had five top-five finishes and was fifth in points. Occhino grabbed the lead early on and dominated the rest of the feature for his first ever trip to victory lane.
TOP FIVE POINT STANDINGS – Alan Fink 408. Kevan Cook 402. Chris Fleming 398. AJ Kingsley 392. Jason Occhino 388.
Amy Holland was impressive in the July 4 holdover 15-lap E&V Energy Novice Sportsman feature. Holland took the lead on lap 9 from Zach Sobotka and never looked back for her third feature win of the season. Per track rules for the division, when a driver gets three feature wins they have to move up to the SUNY Canton Sportsman. With Holland’s natural talent she should have no problems in her debut this Saturday.
Hilton’s Automotive Four-Cylinder Top Five Point Standings – Tim Dunn 332. Skip DeGroff 326. Colby Herzog 286. Justin Buske 266. David DeNova 226.
David DeNova and his entire family would like to thank all the competitors and fans for their thoughts and prayers after his accident last Saturday at the Fulton Speedway.
After surgery on his leg and arm, he is on the road to recovery.
Cards of cheer can reach David at Upstate Medical Center room 7114. 750 E. Adams St., Syracuse, NY 13210.
The Fulton Speedway would like to welcome the employees from the Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility plant.
