DECKER RETURNS TO FULTON SPEEDWAY WINNERS CIRCLE
FULTON, NY...Billy Decker ended a recent spell of bad luck and claimed the 35-lap DIRT Big Block Modified feature win last Saturday at Fulton Speedway on Promotion Speed Supply Night. Decker took the top spot away from Scott Prentice on lap-14 and then held off a strong running Jimmy Phelps to earn his third victory of the 2005 season at the Home of the Dynomax Victoria 200.
Chad Phelps jumped out to the early lead at the start of the Promotion Speed Supply DIRT Big Block Modified feature race from the pole starting position. After five circuits the DIRT Big Block Modified rookie driver continued to lead and was being followed in the top five by Prentice, Dan Vauter, Decker and Ryan Richardson. Phelps would lead the 25-car starting field for the opening seven circuits.
Prentice took the top spot away from Chad Phelps on lap eight. Prentice would lead the field though lap-13. Decker was able to take the top spot away from Prentice on lap-14. At the halfway mark Decker was being chased in the top five by Prentice, Jimmy Phelps, Chad Phelps and Tim Fuller. Richardson, Vinnie Vitale, Matt Sheppard, Tom Sears and Alan Johnson occupied positions sixth through tenth at the halfway mark.
Just when it appeared that Decker would go on to an easy victory the second and final caution period of the race came out on lap-26. After the restart Jimmy Phelps made several strong runs at Decker, but was never able to move around for good. Decker earned his third feature race victory of the season in the Gypsum Wholesalers ride. Phelps had to settle for second with Fuller, Alan Johnson and Prentice completing the top five feature finishers.
Brett Tonkin won his first ever 20-lap DIRT Sportsman feature race last Saturday at Fulton Speedway. Mike Bowman, Matt Janczuk, Jim Bowman and Kevin Bates followed the young driver from the State of Pennsylvania across the finish line. Tomkins took the lead away from Mark Davison on lap two and then held off Bowman for the hard earned victory.
T.J. Fitzgibbons won his second 20-lap DIRT Pro Stock feature race of the 2005 season last Saturday night. Billy Clark, Jack Terrell, Jason Rood and Dick Parkhurst followed Fitzgibbons across the finish line. Fitzgibbons took the lead away from Jack Terrell on lap seven and would then lead the rest of the distance. The victory was a crucial one for Fitzgibbons in his search for the track title.
Rusty Marsden won his fifth Pure Stock feature race of 20-laps last Saturday night. Ron Hawker, Dan Hofmann Sr., Chad Crouse and Jay McGillicuddy finished in positions second through fifth respectively. Rusty Marsden inherited the lead on lap-19 after race leader Ricky DeGroff slowed with a flat tire. Marsden took advantage and claimed another victory in the division.
Doug Williams won his second straight 20-lap Mod Lite feature race last Saturday at Fulton Speedway. Joe Abbass, Dan Williams, Tim Devendorf and Darren Austin followed Williams across the finish line. Williams took the top spot away from Austin on lap eight and he would never give it back.
