Jordan Watson Wins 44th Annual Camp Banes Benefit June 22, 2016

Jordan Watson Wins 44th Annual Camp Banes Benefit

By CHARLIE BROWN

DELMAR, DE – A 24-hour weather delay didn’t keep the 44th Annual Camp Barnes Benefit from being a huge success Wednesday night at the Delaware International Speedway. A strong turnout of 118 racers and a great crowd were on hand to watch invaders take home the lion’s share of the healthy purse.

Heat races were all important as the feature fields started heads up from the heat finishes. In the 30-lap Modified feature Bridgeport regular and former track champion, Jordan Watson, driving the Will Brown No. 1w started on the pole with last year’s winner and former track champ, Matt Jester, who was once again running a small block, starting in second.

From the drop of the green, Watson went to the top groove and set the pace. The big crowd got a great introduction to big block regular and division rookie, Carson Wright who followed Watson to the top and kept him in striking distance.

The first of three cautions came out on lap five and on the restart the outside groove continued to be the quickest as Jester took over the second spot behind Watson. By halfway, Watson was working traffic followed by Jester, Wright, Scott VanGorder and Howard O’Neal in the top five.

Two laps later, Clay Tatman rolled to a stop and on the restart Wright was able to regain the second spot. Beau Wilkins climbed into the top five and with five to go the final yellow flew. On the restart the top four remained unchanged while Wilkins and Joseph Watson battled for the fifth spot. Jordan Watson would drive to the $3000 win with Wright ending an impressive run in second. Jester finished in the third spot with VanGorder and Wilkins rounding out the top five. The feature was sponsored by Brett Deyo and the Georgetown Speedway.

Richards Captures Win No. 7 at Weedsport June 21, 2016

Richards Captures Win No. 7 at Weedsport

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. - June 21, 2016 – Josh Richards played tag from the front row Tuesday night at Weedsport Speedway (N.Y.), leaving only five cars on the lead lap of the Finger Lakes 40 in his seventh win of the season.

“I can’t thank my guys enough,” Richards said. “They worked their butts off, and I’m just glad I can put [the car] up front for them.”

Richards, who led the 24-car field into the green flag with his No. 1 Valvoline/ Seubert Calf Ranches Rocket car, held the lead for all 40 laps. Richards won his heat earlier in the night by more than a three-and-a-half second margin, but that gap was unparalleled to how much he pulled away from the pack in the feature.

Richards maintained a similar differential through the first half of the race. The true fight was from spots four through six. Shane Clanton, Rick Eckert and Brandon Overton jockeyed for position within the first 10 laps of the feature, nearly spreading three-wide across the 3/8-mile oval. Overton relied on the top groove early, but soon forfeited the high-side of the track to Clanton, who broke into the top 5 by lap 7.

While Overton continued to fade, Clanton and Eckert chased-down third place Steve Casebolt by lap 21. The trio bunched up, weaving as a unit through lapped traffic. It took a bold move on lap 17 from Clanton’s No. 25 Weldbank Energy/ Coopers Meat Packers Capital machine however to take third. With Clanton’s fender nearly grazing the wall with every lap, he set his sights on second-place Frank Heckenast Jr.

“We were just trying to bide our time and pick our line, and we needed to get by those guys,” Clanton said. “I knew I was better than them biding my time. I knew that Josh [Richards] was long-gone…we needed a caution there at the end to see if I had anything for him. But overall: good night.”

Though Clanton bided his time thereafter, he made his move 11  laps later on Heckenast’s No. 99JR St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part/ Storage Squares Capital car; Heckenast signed with Clanton’s chassis company one month prior. Using the top groove, Clanton built enough momentum to take sole possession of second. Heckenast managed to hold on to the final spot on the podium.

“We’ve had some good runs but just with bad luck,” Heckenast said. “I’m just trying to get the ball rolling, get some confidence back, make good runs, build the bank up and get confidence for my crew guys. We were definitely a third place car. Shane [Clanton] was better than us. But, this place is awesome. I wish we could race at facilities like this every week.”

While the battles ensued, Richards increased his lead exponentially – especially within the final 25 laps of the race. Richards led by more than four seconds with 23 laps remaining, and then increased his lead to more than five seconds four laps later. At that trajectory, Richards’ largest lead was with four laps remaining at 11.116 seconds; he ultimately won by 10.363 seconds over Clanton.

Richards lapped into to top ten with 11 laps remaining. Four laps later, he passed three more drivers. His pursuit to lap the rest of the field fell just short out of the top 5.

“I really didn’t realize [how many drivers I lapped] until at the end when I saw Rick [Eckert] and [Brandon] Overton and glanced up at the board,” Richards said. “I didn’t feel like we were that good but the track was beautiful. That was the most fun track I’ve run on in a long time. They do a phenomenal job here. This is a beautiful place. I remember coming here ten years ago as a rookie and it’s really cool to come back here.”

Jeff Strunk Wins at Grandview June 19, 2016

Jeff Strunk Wins at Grandview

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. June 19, 2016 - Jeff Strunk, a ten-time Modified point champion, who reunited with former owner Glenn Hyneman and the No. 126 team, finished second two weeks in a row and he decided it was time to change the status. After a seven lap battle with Mike Kellner he finally got even enough and was able to move underneath Kellner off four with five laps to go and made the move stick as he was now first. Strunk continued the momentum and went on to score his first win of the season in the T.P. Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified All-American Racing Series 30-Lap

Mike Kellner put the Power Washers No. 57 into the lead at the onset of the Modified with pressure from Eric Biehn, Steve Swinehart, John Willman and Ray Swinehart.

It didn’t take long for the Lansdale leadfoot to increase the distance between himself and now Steve and Ray Swinehart, Biehn and Willman.

The first caution was when Ryan Grim spun along the homestretch on the 17th lap when last week’s feature winner Brett Kressley was clipped, did a 360 and continued, but later pulled in before action resumed. The restart was void since Frank Cozze failed to get away. Kellner continued his pace when action resumed, but by this time Strunk was second giving him a run for the top spot. Kellner held his outside line while Strunk tried feverishly to get underneath and advance.

Kellner held off Strunk’s moves until coming off four on lap 25. The bid held and Strunk was now ahead.

Strunk never surrendered first and pulled into the winner’s circle for the first time this year with Kellner a disappointing second trailed by R. Swinehart, Craig Von Dohren, Kyle Weiss, Duane Howard, S. Swinehart, Tim Buckwalter, Danny Erb and Jared Umbenhauer.

Heat winners were Strunk, Howard and R. Swinehart. Kressley won the consi.

Tim Fuller Checks Out For Canandaigua Victory June 18, 2016

Tim Fuller Checks Out For Canandaigua Victory

CANANDAIGUA, NY – ”We’ve finished second and third a lot this year. It feels good to win one,” stated Tim Fuller in victory lane last Saturday at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. “Sheppard always seems to have the edge here so winning is tough. We just keep plugging away.”

The 35-lap DIRTcar Modified feature saw Gil Tegg Jr. jump into the lead at the drop of the green. Mike Mahaney moved into second on lap three and began to challenge Tegg Jr. for the lead. Mahaney’s opportunity came on lap seven. Using the low side of the track, Mahaney charged up next to Tegg but could not complete the pass. Two laps later he tried the outside, but flying through the pack was Tim Fuller who moved to the middle making for a three wide charge for the lead. Fuller was able to take first and begin to draw away from the rest of the pack.

By lap 20 Fuller had pulled away to a full 3.45 second lead over Alan Johnson in lapped traffic. On lap 22, Sheppard drove hard to pass Mahaney for third. But even his charge would fall short as Fuller took the win followed by Johnson, Sheppard, Mahaney and Mat Williamson rounding out the top five finishers. The green-to-checkers finish saw the race average speed at 88.993 mph around the fast half mile oval.
