ALAN JOHNSON WINS FERNANDEZ AUTO MALL HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR AT BREWERTON SPEEDWAY FOR FIRST VICTORY OF THE SEASON
BREWERTON, NY...Alan Johnson claimed the win in the 45-lap DIRT Big Block Modified Fernandez Auto Mall Holiday Spectacular last Friday night at Brewerton Speedway. As hard as it seems to believe, the victory was the first of the season for the multi-time Track Champion at the D-shaped DIRT Demon. The win for the Jeff Rudalavage owned, Native Poker sponsored car was worth $2,300.
Matt Fink raced out to the early lead at the start of the Fernandez Auto Mall Holiday Spectacular from the pole starting position. The DIRT Big Block Modified rookie driver led the opening four circuits. Danny Johnson took the top spot from Fink on lap five. Johnson only led one circuit when his car owner and team-mate Jeff Isabell came away with the top spot.
Jeff Isabell led the quality field through lap-30. It was on lap-31 when Alan Johnson took the top spot away from Isabell. Johnson worked up patiently from the tenth starting position with the help of only two caution periods, the last that came on lap-14. Jeff Isabell turned in his best effort of the season with a strong second place finish. Stewart Friesen came home in third with Tim Fuller and Matt Sheppard completing the top five feature finishers.
Dale Caswell claimed his second 20-lap IMCA Modified feature race win of the 2006 season last Friday night. Rob Keller, Johnny Hill, Pat Pontello and Bill Anderson Sr. followed Caswell across the finish line. Dave Talbot led the first three circuits before Rob Keller took command of the field. Caswell made the winning move past Keller on lap eight.
Doug Williams won his fifth 20-lap ESDCA Mod Lite feature race last Friday night. Dan Williams, Tim Devendorf, Kevin Donhauser and Darren Austin finished in positions second through fifth respectively. Doug Williams made the winning move past brother Dan on lap-18. Kevin Donhauser led the first 13-laps of the main event before Dan Williams slipped by on lap-14.
Joey Delacruz won his fourth 15-lap Four Cylinder Super Stock feature race last Friday night. Chuck Powelczyk, Rich Rainville, Aron Backus and Jeff Herbert crossed the finish line in positions second through fifth. Rich Murtaugh led the first nine laps of the main event. Delacruz took the top spot away from Murtaugh on lap-10 and never gave it back.
Chad Guthrie earned the victory in the Four Cylinder Enduro feature race. Jerry Curcie Jr., Ron Hunt, Jack Simons and Josh Herbert completed the top five feature finishers.
