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

 

September 10, 2011: It was back to racing at Oakland Valley Speedway after a couple weeks off due to labor Day Weekend and more weather. What a difference from last season when we never got rained out. Hats off to John Diotte and his crew for getting the track into great shape considering all the flooding everywhere. Now to the races! The first feature of the evening was Senior Stock and it was a very fast Scott Thomas picking up his fourth win of the season. Tom Brundage came in second with David Thatcher, Sr. third. In the Heavys class, Corey Wood pulled out to the lead and never looked back. He picked up his second win of the season and was on a rail. LJ Lombardo, making his return to Oakland Valley Speedway after a seven year absence, took second and Scott Thomas came in third. In the Lights Class, a close race between Geoff Feola and Alex Arndt, with Geoff taking the win, his second this year. Scott Thomas, running his third class, came in third.

††† In the Junior Sportsman Champ class, Sean Glennon picked up his tenth win of the season after passing Anthony Wood to take the checkered flag. Anthony came in second and Ryan Quackenbush took third. In Rookie Champ, after improving every week out there, Jake Mason picked up his first win of the season over Devin Greer. Great job by Jake. In Junior 1, Anthony Roselli took the win over Tighe Sherlock and Trevor Ross took the win, his ninth, over Garrett Lawlor.. In Junior Stock, a very fast McKenzie Hasenflue pulled away from the field and picked up her fifth win of the season. Patrick Dempsey came in second and Logan Cole was third. In Junior 3, with itís biggest field to date, the Dominator, Dominick Roselli picked up his ninth win of the season, but not without a battle from Kelby Quackenbush, who returned to racing after some time off and was very impressive in her return. Patrick Hayes placed third after tagging the wall in an earlier heat race. His crew chief scrambled to get his kart ready for the feature and it turned out pretty well. Good job.

†† In the Mediums class, a very good race between LJ Lombardo and Allison Lockhart came to the flag with LJ taking the win. Good to see LJ and his dad at the track. Allison came in a close second and David Thatcher,Jr was third. In Junior 2, Sean Glennon picked up his fifth win in this class over Ryan Quackenbush and Jake Lowther. In the Junior Slingshot class, Cole Hentschel picked up his first win of the season over points leader Erin Paulison. Leo Fotopoulos was third. In the Senior Slingshot class, Fast Eddie Reiley picked up his ninth win of the season, with Phil Collins (not the singer) coming in second in his first time at the track this year. Zack Masker came in third. And I was the only Senior Champ.
