| New on the Audio Page from Brewerton Speedway:
After the heat races:
Zach Sobotka won the first heat of the night and told me about what he doing on corner entry.
Will Shields pulled away to win his heat race going away and talked about three bad weeks.
Corey Barker earned his 1st Sportsman heat win of the year and spoke about the moved ute tires.
Jim Witko was fastest in hot laps, fastest in his heat and talked about why he had to switch cars.
Matt Hulsizer led every lap to win his heat and explained why he bobbled once in turns 3 & 4.
Tim Sears Jr. got the win in the final Modified heat and told me what he learned about the track.
Sam Curcie told me about his 4 Cylinder heat win as well as who hit his bumper late in the race.
After the feature races:
Jim Bogett won his second Mod Lite feature in a row and talked about how he got the lead.
Chris Bonoffski dominated the Four Cylinder feature and spoke about why he could not go low.
Tyler Trump talked about his first ever Sportsman win at Brewerton after last week’s DNQ.
Tim Sears Jr. spoke to me after winning his first Brewerton feature after so many second places.
Larry Wight finished in second place and spoke about changing his racing line three times.
Ryan Phelps ran as high as second place and told me how he fell back at the end to finish third.
Tommy Sears came home in fourth place and spoke about watching his nephew win the feature.
Pat Ward chatted about his sixth place finish, how a lapped car hurt and where he can be better.
It was a fast night on the track and on the watch as Brewerton Speedway changed up their format and complete their show in 2 hours and 15 minutes. They ripped right through everything and only took a break right before the final race of the night…the Modified feature.
Tim Sears Jr. won at Brewerton in a big block for the first time after a handful of wins at Fulton and celebrated with his family afterwards. Not much time to savor it for the Sears bunch as they are going to do it again at Fulton tonight so enjoy it guys and who knows…maybe they’ll do it again.
Sixteen year old Tyler Trump won his first at Brewerton also after failing to qualify the week before with multiple generations of his family on hand. Did you know his family once owned the Brewerton Speedway? I didn’t until I met some of his family last week at Brewerton. So you know this one felt really good.
Jim Bogett won for the second week in a row after several runner up finishes. This one was a little more comfortable that last week as he cruised in the final laps. And Chris Bonoffski became the third different winner in the Four Cylinders as he won in dominating fashion.
Like I said, the show was the quickest I can remember at Brewerton and they are really trying to bring in new fans and I think a quick, tidy 2 hour and fifteen minute show might do that. Most young people like to go out after the races and if you get done after 11 p.m. it becomes hard for them to do so. Of course the teams had to work harder to keep up the pace but if this works in the long run it will be good for everyone involved.
I’ll have more for you tomorrow including a chat with Dave Blaney who jumped back behind the wheel after six weeks off due to a concussion. Great to see you back Dave and nice to see you afterwards at the local McDonalds. I hope you had fun running with us.
I hope you all enjoy this summer like day and have a great Father’s Day on Sunday.
