BLAKE BARNEY GRABS CAREER FIRST WALL MODIFIED WIN

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Driving the bright red No. 14 for “Team 14,” one of the most famous and successful racing teams in Wall Stadium Speedway's 70 year history, Blake Barney of Jackson raced to his career first Modified stock car victory in the 40-lapper on Saturday night. Barney's victory came on the evening when the speedway's loyal followers honored the memory of photographer JJ Lane who passed away from natural causes during the off season.

Tyler Truex of Mayetta jumped to the early lead as Brick's Dom Fattaruso ran second. Barney had advanced to third by the ten lap mark and vaulted into second just past halfway. Lap 30 offered the final caution of he event when Robert French of Howell and Holmdel's Andrew Krause tangled in turn three. Lining up to the outside of Truex on the rolling restart, Barney made the outside lane work and powered to the lead for good.

Truex crossed the finish line second, but lost the position when it was found during post race inspection that his team had mistakenly bolted on a tire that was not recorded in the team's tire bank. That elevated Howell's Jimmy Blewett to second, with defending champ Steven Reed of Jackson, Fattaruso and Brick's Eddie McCarthy rounding out the top five.

“I want to thank my mother, my father and grandfather for all they have done for me,” Barney said in the winner's circle. “I knew that I was stepping into some big shoes when I started to drive this car. It is an honor to drive for a team that has had so many great drivers. The car is working real well on the outside here. I knew if I could get up to second I would have a chance.”

With just one early caution flag slowing the test, Neptune City's Bryan O'Shea used power and handling to race from an 11th starting spot to win his third straight 25-lapper for the Factory Stocks. Early race leader Kevin Flores of Brick and Howell's Brian Osborn crossed the finish line second and third but lost those spots after post-race inspections. Billy Both of Rahway and Howell's John Carpenter then wrapped up the top three, while Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. and Scott Riggleman on Manchester were fourth and fifth.

After suffering through bad fortunes in the first two events of the season, Jarret DiGiantomasso raced to victory in the Sportsman 25-lapper. Brick's Robert Sutphin was runner-up, with Manahawkin's Jake Nelke, Lanoka Harbor's Jonathan Laureigh and Neil Rutt III of Edison third through fifth.

Mike Alcaro took the lead on an early restart and raced on to his first Legend Cars 25-lap win of the year. Waldwick's Quinn Trimmer, Little Silver's Peter Bruno, Colin Milroy and Eugene Drew were second through fifth.

Buddy Sload won the 25-lap main event for the traveling TQ Midgets with Joey Bailey, Ryan Tidman, Kyle Taraska and Jeff Kott the remainder of the top five.

The 2020 Saturday night regular season continues this Saturday (August 15) evening with the Modifieds competing in the annual running of the 125-lap Garden State Classic. Factory Stocks, 4 Cylinder Stocks and Limited Late Models will also see action in 25-lap main events.

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ In front of a grandstand gathering that included Wall Township Mayor Carl Braun and Councilmen Tom Kingman, Tim Farrell and Kevin Orender, Jimmy Blewett of Howell won the “70th Anniversary Bash” 40-lap Modified stock car race at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night.

Blewett took the lead in the early going with an outside lane pass, but this race was far from over.

Andrew Krause of Holmdel and Jackson's Blake Barney both came from deep in the 22-car field to wrap up the top five.

HOPKINSON WINS THRILLING WALL STADIUM MODIFIED OPENER

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Derek Hopkinson raced from tenth on the starting grid to grab the lead with three laps remaining to win the long awaited season opening 40-lap Modified stock car feature race at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. Due to COVID-19 restrictions the spectator gathering was limited in size for the season opener that was delayed since late April.

Defending champion Steven Reed and Blake Barney, both of Jackson, wrestled side-by-side for the lead in the early going as Eddie McCarthy of Brock and Holmdel's Andrew Krause watched from third and fourth positions. Krause and McCarthy slipped into second and third spots near lap 15 with Krause soon swinging to the outside lane to battle side-by-side for the top spot.

Krause was finally able to inch into the lead at the halfway point, but this race was far from over. Meanwhile, Hopkinson had climbed into third position.

Reed regained the lead with an inside lane pass on a lap 27 restart and Hopkinson was quick to take over second. Hopkinson then shadowed Reed until lap 37 when he muscled his way into the inside lane and then raced on for the win. Reed, Krause, Barney and Manasquan's Kenny Van Wickle completed the top five.

“The car was great to be able to get me to the front from tenth,” Hopkinson said after the win. “At the end of the race I knew I had to get to the inside. I just had to drive it in there and hope for the best. It worked out for me tonight!”

Bryan O'Shea of Neptune City was in the spotlight the entire way as he won the 25-lapper for the Factory Stock cars. Billy Both of Rahway chased him to the finish, while defending champion Elliott Wohl of Beachwood was third. Manchester's Scott Riggleman and Howell's John Carpenter wrapped up the top five.

Early leader Alonzo Morales of Burlington and Wall's TJ Graves offered up a battle royal through most of the 25 lap 4 Cylinder Stock main event as Neptune City's Ryan Maher ran a tight third. But when the lead duo tangled on the front stretch with one lap to go and Graves spun from contention, Maher was able to avoid the mayhem and race to his career first main event win. Morales recovered for second, while Ian Ashford of Farmingdale, Chuck McDonald of Groton, Ct. and Doug Ashford of Farmingdale wrapped up the top five. Graves was scored 11th.

Howell's Eric Lane raced to victory in the season's first 25-lapper for the Sportsman racers. Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson was the early leader in this race, but when his motor exploded on lap seven the resulting oil spill also ruined the night for his brother, Carsten DiGiantomasso. Brick's Robert Sutphin was also involved in the resulting tangle but was able to continue.

Lane picked up the lead at that point and raced on to the win. Sutphin recovered from that early flat tire to finish second, while Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor, Jake Nelke of Manahawkin and Neil Rutt III of Edison were third through fifth.

Daniel Carter of Cortland, N.Y. grabbed the win in the Legend Cars 25-lapper, fighting off Kevin Nowak of Medford, N.Y. most of the way. Bryan Gardella of Brick and Quinn Trimmer of Waldwick wrapped up the top five.

Defending Limited Late Model champ Chris Silvestri of Hazlet outlasted the competition to win a shortened opening night main event. Jackson's Greg Gastelu, Mike Tillett of Bayville. Buddy Miller and Stephen Puglisi wrapped up the top five.

The 2020 Saturday night regular season continues this Saturday (August 1) evening with the Modifieds, Sportsman cars, Factory Stocks, 4 Cylinder Stocks, Legend Cars and the Limited Late Models in action. On this evening the speedway will observe its 70th anniversary with a celebration that will feature several special guests.
