ALAN JOHNSON WINS SECOND STRAIGHT AT BREWERTON SPEEDWAY ON FERRIS INDUSTRIES NIGHT
BREWERTON, NY...Alan Johnson won his second straight 35-lap DIRT Modified feature race of the season last Friday at Brewerton Speedway on Ferris Industries Night. Johnson took the top spot away from Vic Coffey on lap-30 and went on to the hard fought victory in the WPC Associates ride. The victory for the Jeff Rudalavage owned team was worth $2,000.
Vic Coffey raced out to the early lead at the start of the Ferris Industries DIRT Modified main event. With just five circuits complete Coffey was being chased in the top five by Jim Witko, Dale Planck, Mitch Gibbs and Tom Sears. Racing was slowed for the first time when multi-time Track Champion Bob McCreadie slowed in the third turn. On the restart Gary Tomkins, Pat Ward and Sears came together in turn three.
When the event restarted Coffey was looking to run away and hide from the remainder of the all star field. At the halfway mark Coffey, Planck, Alan Johnson, Witko and Danny Johnson raced in the top five. Tim Fuller, Billy Decker, Matt Sheppard, Chuck Bower and Mitch Gibbs raced in positions sixth through tenth respectively at the halfway stage.
Alan Johnson moved into the second position on lap-21. He completed his charge from the 15th starting position into the lead on lap-30. Once in front Johnson went on to the victory. Decker also got by Coffey in the late going to earn a strong second place finish. Coffey settled for third with Fuller and Planck completing the top five feature finishers. Only two caution periods slowed the event.
Bill Anderson Sr. also made it two for two during the young season at the D-shaped DIRT Demon in the IMCA Modified division. Johnny Hill, Mike Jeffries, Les Hubbard and Bill Anderson Jr. finished in positions second through fifth respectively. The elder Anderson recovered from the rear of the field after a first lap tangle to earn the victory.
Doug Williams was the winner of the 20-lap Mod Lite main event last Friday. Williams won the main event by inches ahead of opening night feature winner Tim Devendorf. Darren Forbes, Mark Cooper and Don Fenner completed the top five feature finishers. The 30-car Mod Lite feature race was hotly contested from the drop of the green flag until the checkered flag.
Todd Williamson was the winner of the 15-lap Four Cylinder Super Stock main event. Russell Erwin, Chuck Powelczyk, Jeff Herbert and Daryl Carl completed the top five feature finishers in the 20-car starting field. Williamson took advantage of his up front starting position to lead the entire event.
Race competition will resume this Friday at Brewerton Speedway with the DIRT Big Block Modifieds, IMCA Modifieds, Mod Lites, Four Cylinder Super Stocks and the Four Cylinder Enduro racers all in action. One on One Spectator Races will also be contested. Race time is 7:30 p.m. For more information please call the track office at 315-668-6906 or go on line to www.brewertonspeedway.com.
