Ransomville, NY – Friday, August 29th, 2014 – Atwal Eye Care presented a Full Card of Racing last Friday night head-lined by a fifty lap special for the FinditQuick.com Modifieds. The Investor’s Services Sportsman, Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks, Gippster’s Collision 4 Bangers, and Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman filled the schedule. 2014 Track titles in the Modified’s and Sportsman also came to a close with Danny Johnson taking the championship in the FinditQuick.com Modifieds and Greg Martin in the Investor’s Services Sportsman.
Danny Johnson of Rochester, NY came into the night five points ahead of Erick Rudolph and nine points ahead of Ryan Susice for the 2014 title. Performing open throttle surgery on a lap seventeen restart, the Doctor went from fourth to first using the extreme outside lane. Rudolph would advance to second on lap 32 only to find Johnson with a full five second lead. Rudolph was able to close the gap slightly but to no avail as Johnson collected the win and the title aboard his Traction Grabber sponsored #27j. It was Johnson’s eighth track championship at the Big R – his last coming in 2003. “Thanks to my family, crew, sponsors, and to everyone for coming out tonight, “ commented Johnson trackside.
Erick Rudolph finished in the runner up position aboard his Snyder Industries sponsored #25 and would also finish second in points. Defending champion Pete Bicknell came home in the third position followed by Ryan Susice, and Ricky Richner. Richner led several laps early on.
James Michael Friesen won his fifth of the season in the Investor’s Services Sportsman division. Friesen of St. Catharines, Ontario took the lead away from Greg Martin on lap twenty of the twenty-five lap main event aboard his Manchester Cable sponsored #52 and held it the remaining five circuits. “I have to thank my crew and sponsors for their help this season” commented Friesen. “Also congrats to the Martin team on winning the track title.” Martin held on for second followed by Scott George, Nate Reynolds, and Boyd MacTavish.
Greg Martin of Wilson, NY won his first track title in the Investor’s Services Sportsman class. Martin came into the event eleven points behind defending champion Jesse Cotriss with Friesen nineteen back of the lead. While Friesen and Martin brought the field to the checkered with a one two finish, Cotriss suffered a flat tire just past half way sending him pitside. Piloting his Atwal Eye Care / NYDKS sponsored #4, Martin did a donut in celebration before joining family, crew, and sponsors in a trackside celebration.
Jaren Israel of Wilson, NY took top honors for the second time in 2014 aboard the Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stock division. Israel took control early on after contact from the front row on lap one sent the top two spinning. Israel maintained the lead through several caution periods which plagued the twenty lap event and took the win. Rookie Brett Senek came home in the second position followed by Alex Morris, Pat Dell, and Brian Lonneville.
Chad Lederhouse collected his second win of the season in the Gippster’s Collision 4 Banger division. Taking the win in an non-winner event earlier in the season, Lederhouse would enjoy his first points win over a field of twenty-one strong. Lederhouse held off persistent challenges from Justin McKay and Chris Leone in the closing laps. McKay, Leone, Anthony Hermanson, and Austin Susice rounded out the top five.
Dan Heschke took top honors in the Van Raine Construction Noviced Sportsman fifteen lap main. Heschke took the lead at the drop of the green and maintained it the entire distance. Zack Sam, Mike Martin, Randy Chrysler Jr., and Steve Lewis rounded out the top five.
Coming up next week, Sept 5th - the DIRTcar Sportsman Series plus a Full Card of Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks, a Gippster's Collision 4 Banger Non-Winner Race, and the Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman.
