New on the Audio Page from Brewerton Speedway:
After the heat races:
Nick Krause led every lap to win his Sportsman heat and talked about being a little under geared.
Billy Clark made some substantial suspension changes that led to a win in his Sportsman heat.
Stephen Denton took over first when the leader blew an engine and spoke about his heat victory.
Todd Root pondered a shock change on the right rear and told me about his win in the final heat.
Rob Bellinger told me about his battle with the X car as he stayed ahead to win his Modified heat.
Tim Kerr pulled away to win his Modified heat and told me what he saw in the Sportsman consi.
Chuck Bower won an excellent side by side race and talked about the fun he had in his victory.
After the feature races:
Nick Krause won his first race of the season and talked about how similar it was to last week.
Todd Root had to settle for second after leading a lot of laps and talked about sealing up a tire.
Jeff Sykes ran a nearly flawless race to earn the Mod Lite win and told Adam Buchanan about it.
Dave Brown flipped his Mod Lite, drove away and told me what it was that sidelined him late.
Ray Bechler dominated the Four Cylinder feature and talked about the win with Bill Foley.
Jimmy Phelps led all but two laps in his win and told Adam Buchanan about his versatile car.
Chris Hile went from eighth to second and talked about having a very maneuverable racecar.
Rob Bellinger finished in fourth place and told me how good his car was as he hugged the inside.
Max McLaughlin reacted to his first top five finish and talked about how tough the competition is.
What a great night it was at the Brewerton Speedway opener. Even though it rained a good part of the day and again at about 4:30, it turned to be an awesome night with a smooth racing surface.
Jimmy Phelps won the Modified feature race to make it two in a row, he won last week at Fulton, and the final laps were wild with several position changes as well as cars falling out of the race with mechanical issues. You would have thought it was Friday the 13th of something. Oh wait, it was!
Nick Krause bounced back after his tough night at Fulton although for a while it looked like he would get passed in traffic by the same driver, Todd Root. But Krause was able to get back by Root and claim the victory. Yeah, he felt pretty good about it. Come back later in the week as he mans up to talk about what happened last week at Fulton an explains what turned his runner up finish into a last place run.
It was good to see Jeff Sykes win the Mod Lite race especially after heavy contact with a car in the closing laps. Jeff is known as a small block Modified racer from the North Country but did you know he was also Doug Fuller’s crew chief on the Outlaw Circuit? If you want to get him going, ask how his first hot laps in Doug’s car went. Love you Jeff and it is quite a story.
First time winner Ray Bechler took home the victory in the Four Cylinder Super Stock race. His son won last week at Fulton so it is a good time to be a member of the racing Bechler family.
There was some sad news however as a person was hit on Route 11 right in front of the speedway. At the time I write this I have no idea of the person’s condition but they were doing a reconstruction when I left so let’s put them in our prayers and hope for the best.
Don’t know what if anything I will be doing today as I am so far behind on things here at the house. And with the weather turning colder and wetter today I am just hoping for some racing at your favorite Saturday home. Come back tomorrow and we’ll have more for you and we hope you all have a great weekend.
