JIMMY PHELPS POWERS TO FULTON SPEEDWAY DIRT BIG BLOCK MODIFIED FEATURE WIN ON SYRACUSE CRUNCH NIGHT
FULTON, NY...Jimmy Phelps powered to his first Fulton Speedway DIRT Big Block Modified feature win of the season last Saturday on Syracuse Crunch Night. Phelps took the lead away from Jim Witko on lap-14 and never gave it back. The victory for the Phelps Racing, J&B Installations sponsored DIRT Big Block Modified team was worth $2,000.
Dave Axton raced out to the early lead at the start of the Syracuse Crunch DIRT Big Block Modified feature race from the pole starting position. After five laps Axton continued to lead and was being followed in the top five by Jim Witko, Ryan Richardson, Sean Beardsley and A.J. Romano. Axton would lead the opening six laps of the main event.
Witko took the top spot away from Axton on lap seven. Witko would lead the talented field through lap-13. It was on lap-14 when Jimmy Phelps took the top spot away from Witko. At the halfway mark Phelps was being followed in the top five by Witko, Tim Fuller, Matt Sheppard and Pat Ward. Alan Johnson, Axton, Richardson, Jeff Rudalavage and Scott Prentice raced in positions sixth through tenth at the halfway stage.
Fuller moved into the second position on lap-19 and started to close in on Phelps. The lead duo ran together for several laps, but Fuller jumped the cushion in the late going that gave the victory to Phelps in the closing laps unchallenged. Fuller held on for second with Johnson, Witko and Sheppard completing the top five feature finishers.
Dave Reilley won his first ever DIRT Sportsman feature race last Saturday night. It was Reilley's first ever main event victory in 25 seasons of competition. Greg Doust, Mark Yorker, Kevin Bates and Sam Reakes IV completed the top five feature finishers. Reilley led the entire 20-lap distance to earn the victory. He had to hold off Doust, Yorker and Bates to earn the victory.
Ray Maloney won his second 20-lap DIRT Pro Stock main event of the season last Saturday. Bob Buono, Jack Terrell, Bill Clark Jr. and John Pietrowicz finished in positions second through fifth respectively. Maloney took the top spot away from Terrell on lap six and in the closing laps held off the challenges of Buono to earn the feature race victory.
Ricky DeGroff claimed the win in the 15-lap Pure Stock finale last Saturday night. It was DeGroff's first win of the 2005 season. Rusty Marsden, Ron Marsden, Chad Crouse and Gary Barton followed DeGroff across the finish line. DeGroff led for the majority of the event and had to hold off the Marsden brothers in the closing laps to record the victory.

Devendorf won the three car shoot-out for the win over Doug Williams and Frank Doll Jr. Steve Miller and Dan Williams completed the top five feature finishers.
