JOHNSON FLIES TO THIRD FULTON SPEEDWAY BIG BLOCK MODIFIED FEATURE WIN OF THE SEASON ON RAYMOND'S CAR CARE / FERRIS INDUSTRIES / BUDWEISER NIGHT
FULTON, NY...Alan Johnson dominated the 35-lap DIRT Big Block Modified feature race last Saturday at Fulton Speedway on Raymond's Car Care / Ferris Industries / Budweiser Beer Night. It was Johnson's third victory of the season at the Home of the Dynomax Victoria 200. The victory for the Jeff Rudalvage owned, WPC Associates sponsored car was worth $2,000.
Tony Buffa raced out to the early lead at the start of the Raymond's Car Care / Ferris Industries / Budweiser DIRT Big Block Modified feature from the outside pole starting position. After five circuits Buffa continued to lead the talented field and was being chased in the top five by Dave Rauscher, Ryan Richardson, Jim Witko Jr. and Tom Sears Jr.
Buffa would lead the first 11-laps of the main event when the second and final caution period of the race came about. Johnson was able to work under Buffa after the restart and led the field starting on lap-12. At the halfway mark Johnson was being followed in the top ten by Buffa, Pat Ward, Tim Fuller, Richardson, Sears, Billy Decker, Witko, Scott Prentice and Chad Phelps.
Johnson was able to run away and hide from the rest of the field as the event went 23 straight laps without a caution. The battle for second through sixth was a good one, however. Fuller won that battle to finish second with Ward, Decker and Matt Sheppard completing the top five feature finishers. Buffa recorded his best ever DIRT Big Block Modified finish at Fulton Speedway with a strong sixth place effort.
Alan Johnson won the eight lap DIRT 358 Modified mini-series race last Saturday night. Matt Sheppard, Dave Rasher and Donnie Wetmore Jr. completed the feature finishers in the cash dash type event.
Jim Bowman won his third 20-lap DIRT Sportsman feature race last Saturday night. Greg Doust, Jeremy Pitcher, Mike Bowman and Sam Reakes IV finished in positions second through fifth respectively in the wild event. Bowman took the top spot away from Doust on lap-13 and then held off all challengers for the victory. T.J. Fitzgibbons won his fourth 20-lap DIRT Pro Stock feature race last Saturday night. Ray Maloney, John Pietrowicz, Bob Buono and Jason Parkhurst finished in positions second through fifth respectively. Fitzgibbons led the entire distance in the non-point event.
The Pure Stock feature race was rained-out. The Pure Stock competitors will battle in double features this Saturday, August 27.
Professional DIRT Motorsports competition will continue this Saturday at 7 p.m. The DIRT Big Block Modifieds, DIRT Sportsman, DIRT Pro Stocks, double features for the Pure Stocks, Mod Lites and the Four Cylinder Enduro racers will make-up the huge race program.
