JOHNSON BENEFITS FROM BOWER'S MISFORTUNE TO WIN FERRIS INDUSTRIES DIRT BIG BLOCK MODIFIED FEATURE
BREWERTON, NY...Alan Johnson benefited from Chuck Bower's misfortune to win the 35-lap DIRT Big Block Modified feature race last Friday at Brewerton Speedway on Ferris Industries Night. Bower appeared headed to victory before tangling with a lapped car in the third turn of the final circuit. Johnson made it through the mishap and went on to his fifth victory of the season at the D-shaped DIRT Demon.
Jeff Isabell raced out to the early lead at the start of the Ferris Industries DIRT Big Block Modified feature from the pole starting position. Isabell led the first three laps of the race. Chuck Bower took the top spot away from Isabell on lap four. With 10-laps complete Bower was being followed in the top five by Billy Decker, Jeff Isabell, Jim Witko and Johnson.
At the halfway mark Bower was being followed in the top five by Johnson, Isabell, Witko and Bob McCreadie. Steve Hulsizer, Tom Sears, Scott Prentice, Gary Tomkins and Matt Sheppard raced in positions sixth through tenth respectively at the halfway stage. In the closing laps it appeared that Bower was on his way to victory until the mishap on the final circuit.
Bower held the lead going down the back stretch of the final lap with Johnson closing in. Bower tangled with a lapped car entering the third turn and spun. This gave the lead to Johnson with the remainder of the field scattering. Bob McCreadie came from the 19th starting position to finish a strong second. Jeff Isabell, Jim Witko and Steve Hulsizer completed the top five feature finishers in the wild finish.
Sean Lias won his second 20-lap IMCA Modified feature race of the season last Friday night. Richard Townsend, Johnny Hill, Dale Caswell and Bill Anderson Sr. completed the top five feature finishers. Lias and Townsend had a great race for the feature victory. Lias took the lead away from Townsend for good on lap-19.
Doug Williams won his fourth 20-lap Mod Lite feature race of the season last Friday. Kevin Donhauser, Frank Doll Jr., Don Fenner and Tim Devendorf finished in positions second through fifth respectively. Williams took the lead away from Donhauser on lap-18 and never gave it back.
Glen Erwin won his second 15-lap Four Cylinder Super Stock feature race of the season last Friday night. Todd Williamson, Chuck Powelczyk, Russell Erwin and Lorrie Herbert completed the top five feature finishers. The former Brewerton Speedway Track Champion led the entire distance of the main event.
