ISABELL WINS VICTORIA 200 ALL STAR RACE QUALIFIER AT BREWERTON SPEEDWAY / JOHNSON CLAIMS ANOTHER TRACK TITLE
BREWERTON, NY...Jeff Isabell picked a good time to win his first ever 35-lap DIRT Big Block Modified feature race at Brewerton Speedway last Friday night. Isabell earned the victory in the main event that offered a spot in the Victoria 200 All Star Race at Fulton Speedway on October 1. Veteran Alan Johnson claimed his third track title at the D-shaped DIRT Demon in the last four seasons in the Jeff Rudalavage owned car.
Isabell raced out to the early lead at the start of the DIRT Big Block Modified feature from the pole starting position. Action was stopped on lap one when Pat Ward and Tom Sears tangled in the second turn. Ward's car would flop over, but both drivers were able to restart the event. With five laps complete Vic Coffey, Bob McCreadie, Ryan Phelps and Tony Buffa followed Isabell in the top five.
At the halfway mark of the fast paced event Isabell, Coffey, McCreadie, Phelps and Tim Fuller raced in the top five. Dale Planck, Matt Sheppard, Alan Johnson, Buffa and Gary Tomkins battled in positions sixth through tenth respectively. The second and final caution period of the race came for debris on the track on lap-21. The field regrouped behind Isabell, but the outcome didn't change.
Isabell won his first ever DIRT Big Block Modified feature race at the D-shaped DIRT Demon and in the process earned a Fulton Speedway Victoria 200 All Star Qualifying race spot. Coffey had to settle for second with McCreadie, Johnson and Phelps completing the top five feature finishers. Johnson earned the 2005 track title for yet another time, his third in four seasons.
It was a night for the Anderson's last Friday in the IMCA Modified class. Bill Anderson Jr. won his first ever 20-lap main event. Bill Anderson Sr. earned the 2005 track title, his second in three seasons. Johnny Hill, Erie Nier, Tony Finch and Carmen Vona Jr. completed the top five feature finishers. Anderson Jr. took the top spot away from Les Hubbard on lap-16 and would never give it back. Anderson Sr. missed a few minor tangles on his way to his seventh place feature finish which was good enough for the track title.
Tim Devendorf won his fifth 20-lap Mod Lite feature race of the season last Friday night. With the victory Devendorf added to his point lead with the final point show slated for September 16. Dan Williams, Kevin Doll, Frank Doll Jr. and Steve Miller finished in positions second through fifth respectively. Devendorf made the winning move past Miller on lap eight.
Russell Erwin made it a clean sweep in the Four Cylinder Super Stock division. Erwin won the 15-lap main event as well as the 2005 season track title. Joey Delacruz, Todd Williamson, Rich Rainville and Sam Curcie finished in positions second through fifth respectively. Russell Erwin passed his brother Glen Erwin to take command of the field on lap eight.
Chad Guthrie won both of the Four Cylinder Enduro features last Friday night. Josh Herbert, Jerry Curcie Sr., Chad Dupra and Sam Curcie trailed Guthrie in the opener. Troy Engerbretsen, Chad Dupra, Art Dupra and Andy Butless followed Guthrie in the second event.
The next event at Brewerton Speedway is slated for Friday, September 16. The Sunoco Race Fuels combined Sportsman Super DIRT Series will invade the D-shaped DIRT Demon plus the Lias Tire IMCA Modified Series. The Mod Lites, Pure Stocks, Four Cylinder Stocks and Four Cylinder Enduro racers will also be in competition.
