Andrew Ferguson enjoyed his best Modified finish ever and talked about coming home in fourth.
Jimmy Phelps gained 13 spots to finish 5th and told me about his car and Sunday in Weedsport.
Larry Wight moved up ten spots to finish sixth and talked about getting a little wide late.
It was a real fun night at Brewerton on Friday as three new winners graced victory lane and for one, it was their first win ever! A nice crowd was on hand and I got to watch the racing with a good friend that I don’t see at the tracks all that much. And I learned a lot of things in some off the record conversations…what? No I didn’t.
Matt Sheppard made a pass of Chuck Bower with three laps to go to win the Modified feature. Bower held on for second while Andrew Ferguson enjoyed his best finish ever in the class as he led 16 laps on his way to a fourth place finish where he was nipped at the line by Rob Bellinger. I got positions 2-6 for you and I hope you enjoy those.
Ronnie Davis III came from 14th to win the Sportsman feature as he picked up a spot a lap to take the lead on lap 14. From there was up front and unchallenged as he took home the plaque and got to visit victory lane. Joe Sobotka and Dylan Zacharias led laps early with Zacharias holding on for second place. The big mover of the race was Jordan Bennett who came from 19th to 4th after having trouble in his heat.
Congrats to first time ever winner Jeremy Isabell as he made a last corner pass of early hard luck award candidate Jim Bogett to edge him at the line by just 0.10 seconds. It was quite a race as the two ran side by side for lap after lap late in this one. Nice job Jeremy and hang in there Jim, a win has got to be coming soon.
And after a rash of bad luck in the first three races Chuck Powelczyk picked up his first Brewerton win of 2016. He also won last Saturday’s race at Fulton Speedway. Looks like Chuck has figured it out and is back his old self.
I will be in Volney today at the Oswego County Quarter Midget Club as they have their annual Try a Quarter Midget Day. Allie has been on my Playstation 3 practicing with the wheel and pedals so she is excited about sitting in an actual racecar to get in a few laps. After that I will be heading to Fulton for my favorite double header, Sprint and Modifieds.
I will be back with more for you tomorrow from the show tonight and will also be loading up the can with chats you can start to hear on Monday. And if Utica Rome falls victim to the weather this Sunday they have said they will be racing this Thursday so we’ll wait and see how that goes. I’ll have more on that later.
