†††††††††††††††††† Race Report by JohnSainz

 

October 8, 2011: It was a perfect day for racing with unseasonable warm temperatures and plentiful sunshine. Track was in excellent condition, thanks to John Diotte and his crew. Many people were on hand to race, with large entries in Lights, Heavys and Senior Stock. In the Heavys feature was a great racewith Bill Wood taking the win with Randy McCullough and Dennis Mathews right on his rear bumper. It looked like Dennis would take the win, but Bill took the lead with a few laps to go and reached the flag first. Also in this race was a nasty wreck involving Adam Fredericks, who had spun out and came to rest on the front stretch. A few other karts had made it past him, but Kevin Morgan came through and collided with him. Both men got up and were OK, Iím sure very sore today, but Kevinís kart was destroyed. I did not get a chance to speak with either of them after the races were over. Hope to see them back next week. In the Mediums class, a very fast Clark McCollum took the win over Dan Hoeffner. Adam Fredericks came in third. This race was run before the Heavys race.

†† In the Lights class, Steven Gully drove a great race to take the win, his fifth of the season, over Brandon Mullis and his daughter Stephanie Gully, who came in third. It was Stephanieís best finish this season. Good job! Jake Mason wins in Rookie Champ and Damon Paul took the win in Junior 1. In my favorite class, Junior Sportsman Champ, a great battle between Anthony Wood and points leader Sean (The Champ) Glennon ended with Sean taking the win after a corner caution caused Anthony to get off the throttle for a spun kart and Sean zipped on by him. He tried to catch Sean but ran out of laps. Good Race. Flyin Ryan Quackenbush came in third. It was Seanís eleventh win this season. In Junior Stock, Patrick Dempsey ran a great race and took the win over Dominick Roselli and a very fast McKenzie Hasenflue. It was Patrickís third win this season. Good job by Patrick and his crew. In our Senior Stock class, with a fifteen kart field of

older guys, (where were all these guys last year when I was in this class?!) it was a very fast Bill Wood just pulling away from the field to take the win by five seconds over a good race between John Wolfe and Mark Stanley. Mark held off John to take second.

†††† In Junior 3, points leader Patrick Hayes finally beat the Dominator Dominick Roselli to pick up his second win this season. Good job by Patrick! Patrick Kelly came home third. In Junior 2, Ryan Quackenbush took off like he was shot out of a cannon to lead the race and pull away, but got upa little high in turn 1 and 2 and spun out. Passing him were Lane Saville and Sean (The Champ) Glennon who battled for the lead the rest of the way. Lane Saville got to the checkered flag first with Sean right on his bumper. Sean was held up on the last lap a little by lapped trafficor else it would have been really close at the finish line. In Senior Champ, John Sainz took the win over Guy Hodecker. Thanks for coming Guy. Hope you can make it back soon.

†††† In Junior Slingshot, points leader Erin Paulison picked up her seventh win of the season by pulling away from the field. Jared Labagh took second and Isaiah Masker came in third. Way to go Erin!Mathew Deritter was our only Rookie Slingshot. In Senior Slingshot, Fast Eddie Reiley picked up his tenth win of the year over Joey Massimilla. Tyler Treacy made his return to Oakland Valley Speedway and came in third. The World Formula Modified Tour was on hand today and as always put on a good show. A very dominating performance led Dave Parker to the checkered flag ahead of the always fast Tommy Kosch. Kenny Lund came across third. Thanks to those guys for racing with us, always great to watch them run.
