Chuck Hebing saw second place in his heat win and talked about the good cars in his heat race.
Alan Fink benefitted from a caution at the right time and told me about making some gains.
Jason Parkhurst walked me through what he did as he made a last lap pass for a heat victory.
Tommy Sears had a different car at Fulton for his heat win and told me why he made the change.
Tim Kerr shot through the middle of a three wide deal to win his heat and talked about the track.
Chad Phelps had a car gaining on him in his heat win and talked about trying out some new shocks.
Torrey Stoughtenger had a bad crash in his Novice Sportsman race and told me how he was feeling.
After the features and the A-Main:
Jeremy Dygert won his first career Sportsman feature and talked about what he found early on.
Steve Poirier kept his lead in the Speedweeks points with a lead and talked about his victory.
Chuck Hebing talked about the battle he had to keep second and how tough the restarts were.
Jason Barney finished in third place and talked about what went wrong on the last restart.
Matt Parkhurst won his 1st Late Model feature and talked about how surprised he was to win early.
Jimmy Phelps came from 14th to 1st in 26 laps and spoke about some changes they made on Saturday.
What a night it was at Fulton Speedway as the Empire Super Sprints joined the regular show in front of a darned good crowd. The track was surprisingly tacky with the drought conditions we’ve had and it did throw a curve ball at a few of the teams.
It was a wild night with many hard crashes that caused the ambulance to come out on to the track on at least five occasions. There were no life threatening injuries thankfully but at least two people I know did take a trip to the hospital afterwards. We are praying and hoping everyone is alright.
Steve Poirier took home the win in the ESS race and extends his lead in the Donath Motor Worx Speedweeks standings although the $2,000 he won might be a fraction of what he is going to have to spend after this one. His engine went sour showing smoke after the final restart and when you hurt and engine is always costs more than that.
Jimmy Phelps had a strong run coming from 14th to the lead in 26 laps beating out Tommy Sears late in the race. It looked like Mike Bowman might come back from his flip to win the next night but his car faded and he finished tenth after running as high as second.
There were first time winners at Jeremy Dygert won the Sportsman race and Matt Parkhurst took home the Late Model victory. Nice job guys!
Today I should be at Utica Rome for the finale of Speedweeks as well as a Super DIRTcar Series race. There are two more SDS races this week with the rescheduled Albany Saratoga show on Wednesday and Mohwak International on Thursday.
