New on the Audio Page from the Brewerton Speedway opener:
After the heat races:
Ronnie Davis III talked about his win in the first Sportsman heat and how he made a pass down low.
Rocco Leone pulled away to win his Sportsman heat and talked about returning to Brewerton weekly.
Earl Rudy was second in heat number two and told me why he backed out of it on the first lap.
Brent Joy just barely won the final Sportsman heat and explained what happened on the last lap.
Dave Marcuccilli walked me through his second place finish as he came up a few inches short.
Pat Ward won the second Modified heat race and spoke about how he made the pass for the lead.
Mike Bowman picked up a comfortable win his Mod heat and talked about the race line he ran.
After the feature races:
Zack Babcock celebrated with his team as he spoke about his first career Mod Lite victory.
Chuck Powelczyk started off his 2017 season with a win and talked about his off season work.
Larry Wight passed his teammate for the Mod victory and spoke about the track he raced on.
Jimmy Phelps finished in second place in the Mod feature and told me about the final restart.
Matt Hulsizer told me about his fourth place finish and the jingle he had in his heat race earlier.
Max McLaughlin picked up fifteen spots to finish fifth and described his very busy race night.
I had a fun night as I dropped Allie off at the NYS Fairgrounds for some hot laps and then headed to Brewerton Speedway for their opener. It was a great night of racing and I got a lot recorded, half of which is up today.
There was a first time winner in the Mod Lite feature race as Zack Babcock picked up his first win. I know...technically he won before when the class was split in two but on that night he was not the first car across the line so I am calling it his first win.
Larry Wight won his heat and the Modified feature passing teammate Pat Ward on lap 13 and holding off Jimmy Phelps on a late race restart with eight laps to go. We’ve got his victory lane interview so enjoy that was well as four of the top five.
I left after the Modified feature as it rained and I really did not think they would get back to racing but they did with Alan Fink winning from his number three starting spot. And Chuck Powelczyk won the Four Cylinder race as he hopes for another championship.
This morning I’ll be heading to the NYS Fairgrounds again to work with Allie and the Kuleszo Race Team as we have qualifying heat races on tap later this afternoon. We’re a little short staffed this morning and anyone who knows me well knows I can’t do ANYTHING when it comes to doing anything with a tool in my hand. I’m just hoping to get through it and have an incident free day as Allie continues to learn.
After that if everything works out I will head to Fulton and then do it again tomorrow as we race with Allie in the afternoon and then hopefully they’ll get done in time so I can go to Utica Rome. I know it’s asking a lot with the weather forecast we’ve got but I’ll hope for the best and take it as it comes.
I hope you all have a great day today and I hope you all get to go to your favorite Saturday night track and have fun.
