Sodus, NY - Tim Lapp, of Accord, NY, won the second race on the 1999 Woodard's Concrete Products/CNYMS Tour at the Afton Speedway in Afton, NY on Friday, May 14th. Lapp powered his Henchcraft Mini Sprint to the front of the 18 car field in a race where the top five finishers were about equally matched. Dave Perworchik, of Harporsville, NY, dominated the early part of Friday night's race, moving out from his fourth starting position to almost a half-straightaway lead. Two cautions on laps 4 and 5 bunched the field. When racing resumed, Lapp put the pressure on Peworchik, as Dennis Fink, of Germantown, NY, and Jeff Lamothe, of Easthampton, MA, moved up through the field. Lapp was finally ab le to overtake Peworchik and hold on for the victory. Fink finished third, Lamothe fourth, and Joel Batzel, of Windsor, NY, rounded out the top five. Heat race winners were Mike Emhof, of Sodus, N Y, and Paul James, of Albany, NY.

In addition to the winner's purse on Friday night, Lapp took home a gift certificate from Seymour Enterprises, a distributor of performance race products for open wheel and stock car racers. The Pen nzoil product contingency award went to Darl Ellis, the eighth place finisher. The Pennzoil award is based on a random drawing of all the feature finishers by the feature winner and is made possible by Slate Belt Auto Parts in Bangor, PA.,
