FULLER PASSES WARD ON FINAL LAP FOR DIRT BIG BLOCK MODIFIED FEATURE WIN AT BREWERTON SPEEDWAY
BREWERTON, NY...Tim Fuller won his second straight Brewerton Speedway DIRT Big Block Modified 35-lap feature race the hard way last Friday. Pat Ward took the top spot away from Fuller on lap-33 while racing in lapped traffic. Fuller came charging right back though and stormed around Ward for the victory coming out of the fourth turn of the final lap. To say that the race was a crowd pleasing affair would be an understatement.
Scott Prentice raced out to the early lead at the start of the DIRT Big Block Modified main event. After five circuits Prentice continued to lead and was being followed in the top five by Danny Johnson, Sean Beardsley, Tony Buffa and Chuck Bower. Prentice was looking to run away and hide from the field, with battles being staged throughout the field for position.
At the halfway stage Prentice continued to lead and was being followed in the top five by Danny Johnson, Beardsley, Fuller and Bower. Billy Decker, Ward, Gary Tomkins, Alan Johnson and Steve Hulsizer raced in positions sixth through tenth at the halfway mark in the highly competitive field. At several times during the event fans were treated to plenty of three wide racing.
Prentice led the opening 22-laps of the main event. Danny Johnson slipped by for the lead on lap-23. Fuller started his charge to the front by using the top side of the multi-groove track. Danny Johnson's lead was a brief one as Fuller took away the top spot on lap-26. In the late stages of the event Ward was the man on the move. Ward closed in on Fuller and boxed him in behind a lapped car to take the lead on lap-33.
Fuller wasn't about to quit and came right back at Ward. Fuller kept charging and swept around Ward coming out of the fourth turn of the final circuit for the thrilling victory which was worth $2,000 for the B&F General Machine team. Ward had to settle for second with Danny Johnson, Tomkins and Alan Johnson completing the top five feature finishers in the wild event.
Dale Caswell won his first 20-lap IMCA Modified feature race of the season in a torrid battle over defending Track Champion Johnny Hill. Tony Finch turned in his best effort of the season with a strong third place finish. Two time feature winner Bill Anderson Sr.finished fourth with Ken Rogers completing the top five. Caswell took the top spot away from Hill on lap-15 and the duo raced side by side until the finish.
Darren Forbes claimed his first 20-lap Mod Lite feature race victory of the season last Friday night. Steve Miller, Kevin DonHauser, Lowell Zehr and Mark Cooper finished in positions second through fifth respectively. Forbes took the top spot away Williams on lap-11 and held off Miller for his first victory since his season ending injury last season.
Chuck Powelczyk continued the string of first time winners this season and won his first 15-lap Four Cylinder Stock feature event of 2005. Powelczyk was the winner in a photo finish ahead of Todd Williamson. Rick Angle, Russell Erwin and Joey Delacruz completed the top five feature finishers. Powelczyk passed Williamson on lap-13 and held on for the victory.
