Willy Decker told me about his Modified heat win as well as the new deal he has for the 2016 season.
Pat Ward made a last corner pass to win his heat and told me about his uneasy race day stomach.
Matt Hulsizer rebounded after a wreck on Friday to win his heat and talked about good it felt.
After the feature races:
Haiden Burdick spoke about his victory in the first of two Novice Sportsman feature races.
Willy Decker won his Novice Sportsman feature and spoke about winning for two weeks in a row.
Tyler Trump earned his first Sportsman win and talked about the lines he ran as well as restarts.
A.J. Kingsely ran the top exclusively in his Late Model win and talked about a problem they had.
Tim Sears Jr. took the lead with six laps to go and talked about how he ran down the race leader.
Billy Whittaker enjoyed his best Mod finish in 20 years and told me how happy he was with 2nd.
Andrew Ferguson led 29 laps before falling back to 3rd and talked about his best weekend ever.
Mike Bowman finished in fourth place and talked about the need to get better off the bottom.
Jimmy Phelps told me about his fifth place finish as well as how he got down into the infield.
We had a fun day as a family as we headed to Volney to start our day at the Oswego County Quarter Midget Club event which allowed young people to try out a Quarter Midget. They provided everything and Allie was excited and did a great job…more on that later. But everyone could not have been nicer. It was a ton of fun!!!
Then I grabbed a sub on the way (There are no Firehouse Sub locations in Fulton yet so I had to hit another of the chains.) and headed to Fulton for my favorite double header…Mods and Sprints.
With Oswego Speedway off, there were a lot of asphalt fans in the house according to my Oswego friends, and they enjoyed a nice night of racing although a shower was surely needed afterwards as Mods and Sprints do beat up a racetrack.
Andrew Ferguson followed up his career best finish from Friday and did one better finishing third while leading the first 29 laps. Tim Sears Jr. and Billy Whittaker ran him down and each got by in the closing laps. Sears tried low first and then moved to the middle to get around Ferguson who was as committed to the bottom as could be.
It was career Modified win number five for Sears and a career best since his comeback for Whittaker. I got the entire top five so be sure to give them all a listen as well as our heat winners.
Danny Varin made up for his second place in Fulton’s first race of the year as passed Larry Wight with eight laps to go and held off Wight and Chuck Hebing in the final laps. Earlier in the year Varin led until late at Fulton only to see Steve Poirier get by to take the win. This one had to feel good for Varin!
Fifteen year old Tyler Trump won his first race in impressive fashion. They young man is in just his second season in the class and is turning some heads for sure. He may be soft spoken but the young man can really drive a racecar.
A.J. Kingsley won with a motor that was popping for a portion of the race. Willy Decker Jr. won the second race in a row while Haiden Burdick won the first Novice Sportsman feature. Yes, they ran two feature again as they had 19 cars.
I will be doing voice work today and do hope to get a few things done in the studio. We have 26 interviews in the can including one with Allie after she did her hot laps in a Quarter Midget. She did really well. Anyone want to by us a Quarter Midget? We could use one I fear.
Have a great Sunday and I hope it stays dry where you are and you can close your weekend out with a trip to the racetrack.
