I had a fun night on Wednesday as I traveled south of Cortland for a mid week show at Skyline Raceway, one of my favorite tracks from back in the day. I was first exposed to Skyline back in the early 90’s as they used to run a lot of late season specials so it was fun to go there for a mid week special in August.
Jonathon Carpenter to the Boynton owned Street Stock to victory in the 30 lap Fight Night Series race and had Earl Zimmer right there as the two raced out front. It was a classic battle and I forgot how fast these Southern Tier Street Stocks are.
Kevin Jordan took an engine back from the builder that he had planned to freshen up and it was good enough to get him the win in the 30 lap Sportsman race. Nick Nye was on him and if Jordan had slipped at all it may have been a different story altogether but he didn’t and got a big win.
And Mike Robinson took out a great looking Pontiac Sunfire and was clearly the fastest car in the STAR Series Four Cylinder feature race. The show was run off quickly and they were done by 9:45 which got me and everyone else home well in time to get a good night sleep for today.
Now my old computer is moaning and groaning but we do have another one. The bad news is that the monitors are so big that I am going to have to gut my studio and start all over again. So when this old one does die expect us to be down for a few days as I make the necessary changes here. I will keep you posted.
Be sure to come back tomorrow for more from Skyline. I will be at Glen Ridge again on Friday to announce and Fulton on Saturday. See you guys soon.
