A.J. Kingsley came from last to win his Late Model heat and talked about a very special day today.
Kevan Cook made a last corner pass to win his heat and told me about an early race incident.
Tim Kerr brought out a new car the night before and spoke about winning his Modified heat race.
Adam Roberts started out well with his new car and spoke about getting a heat win with his Mod.
Chuck Bower led every lap to win his Modified heat and spoke about the need to be better at Fulton.

A.J. Kingsley won his third Late Model feature in a row and talked about coming from deep.
Kyle Perry notched his first career win in the Novice Sportsman and chatted about his race night.
Richie Riggs dominated the second Novice Sportsman race and spoke about win number four.
Jimmy Phelps led the final 23 laps to win the Modified race and talked about his chassis change.
Chris Bonoffski swept the weekend again and spoke about how good his engine had been of late.
Todd Root dominated the Sportsman feature and talked about getting his program turned around.
Anna Mortimer spoke about winning the Sportsman Ladies Race and how much it meant to her.
I had a fun night although it was a hot one at Fulton Speedway. There was some wild action and more than a few racecars that are gonna need a lot of work before they hit the track again. Yep, it’s August alright and people ae pushing it hard.
Jimmy Phelps won the Modified race and in the process tightened up the point standings trimming Larry Wight’s lead to just six unofficially. Wight raced his way up to third which means he loses eight points but still keeps the lead. The night before was a tough one for Phelps as he pitted early to make a shock change and in the process lost the Brewerton point lead. There are still two races to go at each place to those two battles are not over by any means.
I felt badly for Jason Occhino and Johnny Hill as each had heave damage on their cars and Johnny was leading when he got punted from a car on the inside. His car may be junk. Best of luck to both of you and I hope we see you again real soon.
Todd Root dominated most of the Sportsman feature although point leader Ronnie Davis III came from 20th to second and was the only car who seemed to be faster than the race winner. Those two were clearly in a class to themselves on this night.
A.J. Kingsley is getting married today and celebrated his last night as a bachelor with a dominating feature win. He is going to have quite the day today. Don’t sweat the little stuff today A.J. just roll with it and have fun. It will be over before you know it so enjoy every minute.
The ladies put on a nice show although one of the Four Cylinders ended up on it’s roof. I always enjoy these ladies races and never leave before they were over. And congrats to Anna Mortimer for her Sportsman win and Jenn Cook for hewer Late Model victory.
Let’s hope Mother Nature is a race fan today as races are scheduled at Utica Rome and Weedsport. The people who make their living predicting weather say it won’t be a good day but let’s hope they are wrong as they often are. Keep your fingers crossed and let’s hope for the best.
