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

 

August 20,2011: Seems like itís been forever since the last race report. The August 6 race had been rained out and the following week August 13, we had run through the first round of heat races with only two classes completing their second round when the rains came again. This race was carried over to this week to finish the second round of heats. Racers were scored their finishing position by how they would have lined up for the feature. Then with that completed, we began the races for today. Due to time restraints, we ran only one heat, with that and our points position determining our starting position for the features, which were twenty laps. The first feature run was the Junior Sportsman Champ class. A very good race with these kids, with Sean Glennon taking the win and Anthony Wood taking second. Ryan Quackenbush was third. The Heavys were next and Scott Thomas and Corey Wood battled each other for the lead and it was Scott taking the lead with a couple laps to go to take the win. Corey held on for second with George Bark placing third.

††† In the Light class, Alex Arndt picked up his second win of the season with Danny Hoeffner right on his bumper for second. Dennis Mathews was third. In the Rookie Champ class, Devin Greer took the win over Jake Mason, and Joe Mattera, making his racing debut, took third. In Junior Slingshot, Brandon McGill picked up two wins tonight, one from last weeks race and the other from todayís race. Points leader Erin Paulison took second and Evan VanValkenburg returned to the track for third. Junior 1 saw Anthony Roselli win and in Junior Clone, Trevor Ross picked up his eight win this season. In Junior Stock, a very fast McKenzie Hasenflue pulled away from the field to pick up her fourth win of the year, with Dominick Roselli second and Patrick Dempsey third. In Senior Stock last week there were fourteen entered with eight returning this week. John Wolfe took the win for last week and a fast Scott Thomas took the win this week. Aaron Turner took second last week and third this week.

††† In Junior 3, the Dominator, Dominick Roselli took the wins in both races making it eight wins in this class, Carissa June took second both races and Charlie Lowther was third in both races. The Mediums race was a good one with a very fast Roger Belanger stretching out a huge lead, but a last lap caution for a spun out kart bunched up the field for a one lap shoot out. Dan Hoeffner got by Roger on the start and took the win with Dennis Mathews following a close second and Stan Tabaka third. Junior 2 was another great race with Sean Glennon leading most of the way, but it was Colin Belanger, starting in the rear of the field after a spin earlier in the race, running Sean down and making the pass for the win. Sean came in second and Ryan Quackenbush took third. We had two Junior Rookies on hand tonight and it was Garrett Lawlor taking the win over Damon Paul. The Senior Slingshot class had Joey Massimilla pick up his first win of the season over Matt and Eddie Reiley.

†† The track was fast and in great racing condition thanks to John Diotte and his crew. Great job! Thanks to all of our racers for coming out to race with us and withstanding the rain these past few weeks.
