WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ The list of Tour Type and Wall/SK Modified stock car teams planning to compete in the Thanksgiving weekend Turkey Derby continues to grow! Well over 80 race teams from all divisions were in the Wall Stadium Speedway pit area for both the November 16 and the November 23 final practice session. If these practice turnouts are any indication, the 46th running of the Turkey Derby stock car classic could feature a record setting field in both quality and quantity.

The Turkey Derby is presented on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend during the daylight hours.

Among the Tour Type Modified stock car standouts expressing interest in the annual classic are multi-time Turkey Derby winner Jimmy Blewett of Howell who tested his Wall and Tour Type Modifieds during practice. Also seen turning fast laps were Holmdel's Andrew Krause, Andy Jankowiac of Tonawanda, N.Y., Anthony Sesely of Matawan and Pennsylvania's Bobby Jones.

Former winner Eric Mauriello of Brick, Matt Hirschman of Northampton, Pa., defending winner Dave Sapienza of Riverhead, N.Y., Derek Hopkinson of Toms River, Zane Zeiner of Bath, Pa., Ricky Collins of Willow Grove, Pa. and Long Island racer Kenny Darch also reportedly plan to see action.

The speedway’s own Wall/SK Modifieds will also be well represented by both local favorites and invaders. Former winner Jimmy Blewett, newly crowned champ Steven Reed of Jackson, Jason Hearne of New Egypt, Brick’s Marc Rogers and Howell's Eric Mauriello are all reportedly planning to compete in the Wall Modified 100-lap feature. Mayetta's Tyler Truex, Kenny Van Wickle of Manasquan, Joey Merlino of Pine Hill, Shaun Carrig of Little Falls, Zack Alspach of Willingboro, Jackson’s Jason Treat and Chris Andretta of Neptune are also expected to be in the field.

KRAUSE WINS WALL STADIUM SPOOKY MODIFIED 75 LAPPER

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ After fighting through tough fortunes during the 2019 regular season Andrew Krause fought off the competition to win the 75 lap All American Auto Group Modified stock car feature race Saturday afternoon at Wall Stadium Speedway. The victory in the “Spooky Spectacular” racing program's main event was Krause's first of the 2019 campaign.

Adam LaCicero of Lavallette was the first leader of the event before Brick's Eric Mauriello took command on lap 10 with an outside lane pass. Krause, who had lined up sixth at the outset, also took the high road two laps later to race into second spot and chase Mauriello. The duo then wrestled, often times in side-by-side fashion, towards the halfway point of the test before Krause drove to the high side of a sliding Mauriello to take the lead near lap 25. The duo then continued their fight past the halfway mark as Derek Hopkinson of Toms River ran a tight third.

Just past the halfway point officials asked Mauriello to go to the rear of the pack because they felt that Mauriello had been warned about jumping on restarts too many times. This gave Hopkinson the chance to go after Krause and he took the lead with just over 25 laps remaining. Krause and Hopkinson then battled side-by-side after a lap 66 caution before Krause slipped back into the lead and raced on to the win in the 75 lap test. Hopkinson, Eddie McCarthy of Pt. Pleasant, who was in contention most of the way, Mauriello and Chris Andretta of Neptune wrapped up the top five.

“That was a real workout,” Krause said after the win. “I really have to thank my family and the crew for all the support they give me and the race team. Thanks to all of them we always come to the track with a car that is capable of winning.”

Bryan O'Shea of Neptune City continued his break through season with his sixth win of the campaign in the 50-lapper for the O'Shea's Auto Repair Factory Stocks. Newly crowned champion Elliot Wohl of Beachwood was the runner-up, while invader Rob McCormick, early leader Scott Riggleman of Manchester and Brick's Kevin Flores wrapped up the top five.

Newly crowned Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stock champ Neil Rutt III of Edison topped the 25-lap main event in convincing fashion over Brick's Ronnie Mullen, Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City, Hazlet's Sal Liguori and Todd Dige.

Young racer Mason Magee of Charlestown, Md. grabbed his third win of the season in the 25-lapper for the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars. Jim Sylvester, Quinn Trimmer, Mike Benton and Art Marrero were second through fifth.

The season-ending “Turkey Derby” is next on the schedule on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. More information on the event is available at wallspeedwayracing.com.

REED TAKES THIRD WALL MODIFIED TITLE; MAURIELLO WINNER SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Veteran All American Auto Group Modified stock car driver Steven Reed of Jackson claimed the Modified driving title at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night while Brick's Eric Mauriello won the final 40-lap main event of the regular season. The championship was Reed's career third while the victory was Mauriello's fifth of the campaign.

Andrew Krause of Holmdel charged to the lead in the early going and as the race wore on seemed to be on his way to his first win of the campaign. Krause's luck turned sour, just as it had often times this season, on lap 36 when his car swerved exiting turn two, the victim of a reported broken rear axle. Eddie McCarthy of Pt. Pleasant, who had chased Krause most of the way, then took over the top spot but Mauriello, who had raced from back in the pack, slipped into the lead on a restart to grab the win.

McCarthy, Derek Hopkinson of Toms River and Mayetta's Tyler Truex wrapped up the top four. Reed's fifth place finish cemented the title.

“This car has been great all season,” Mauriello said. “I have to thank Steve Ferarra and the entire team for letting me be a part of it.”

“I wanted to win the race tonight for my daughter's birthday,” Reed said to the large Champion's Night crowd. “I do have to thank my family, my crew and my sponsors for all they have done for me. It has been a great season and this is a special championship.”

Bryan O'Shea of Neptune City raced to his second straight win in the O'Shea's Auto Repair Factory Stock 25-lapper. Elliot Wohl of Beachwood stayed on his bumper most of the way and became the 2019 Driving Champion. Defending Champion Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. was third and Jackson's Shanon Mongeau and Scott Riggleman of Manchester completed the top five.

Invader Richie Davidowitz of Center Moriches, N.Y. won the 25-lapper for the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars as Kevin Nowak of Medford, N.Y. was the runner-up. Sean Verwys of East Stroudsburg, Pa. crossed the finish line third to win the season-long driving crown, while Mason Magee of North East, Md. And Howell's Rob Silver completed the top five.

Brick's Ronnie Mullen won the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks while Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim and Neil Rutt III of Edison were second and third. That finish earned Rutt the driving title. Sal Liguori of Hazlet and Cookstown's Nicole Razzano were fourth and fifth.

Manchester's Shanon Mongeau won his second straight Center State Engineering Sportsman 25-lapper over a top five of Howell's Eric Lane, Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson, Jake Nelke of Manahawkin and Michael Rising of Little Egg Harbor. Jackson's Kyle Scisco crossed the line sixth to clinch of the driving title.

Mongeau also took the win in the 25-lapper for the Mike's Performance Center Limited Late Models while second place finisher Chris Silvestri of Hazlet wrapped up his first ever driving title. Mike Tillett of Beachwood, Jim Moorman of Brooklawn and Jackson's Greg Gastelu were third through fifth.

The Willow Grove, Pa. speedster's win came in front of a large NAPA Night crowd. In addition to posted purse money, Collins, all race winners and random finishers earn additional bonuses from NAPA.

Jonathan Mandato of Jackson was the event's first leader as Collins soon began to apply the pressure. Collins then used a lap 12 restart to power into the lead on the outside lane. Collins then fought through several caution flags as he held off Mandato's charges while several other contenders lurked in a tight lead pack.

After the final caution waved on lap 36 Collins was able to power his way to the finish line for the win. Mandato was second while Brick's Eric Mauriello came from deep in the field for third. Jason Hearne of New Egypt and Shaun Carrig of Little Falls completed the top five. Point leader Steven Reed of Jackson salvaged an eighth place finish after suffering through on track trouble while second place point man Andrew Krause of Holmdel left the race with mechanical trouble to earn 13th.

“I owe all this to my father and my family,” Collins said in the winner's circle. “Doesn't even feel real! Love everyone that gives me a hand on this thing. Driving is easy with the guys I have behind me!”

Bryan O'Shea of Neptune City won his fourth 25-lapper in the O'Shea's Auto Repair Factory Stock division after early leader Billy Both of Rahway crashed in the closing laps. Tim Majek of Scotch Plains and Kevin Flores of Brick were second and third. Point leader Elliot Wohl of Beachwood was fourth and Manchester's Scott Riggleman wrapped up the top five.

MONGEAU AND KOENIG TOP WALL FACTORY STOCKS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Shanon Mongeau of Jackson and Jerry Koenig of Baldwin, N.Y. were big winners on “Pack the Track Night” at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night topping a pair of 25-lap main events for the O'Shea's Auto Repair Factory Stocks. It was the first win of the campaign for each driver.

Once things settled down in the first race Tom Rajkowski of Fords was the early leader as Mongeau fought his way to the front of the pack. Mongeau arrived in second spot just past halfway and then shadowed Rajkowski until lap 21 when he dove to the inside lane in turn two to slip into the lead. Mongeau then powered on to the win while Rajkowski, Scott Riggleman of Manchester, point leader Elliot Wohl of Beachwood and defending champion Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. completed the top five.

Koenig took full advantage of an up front starting spot to lead the 20-car field to the green flag in the second Factory Stock 25-lapper. He then fought off a host of contenders including former champ Joe Mongeau of Brick, Union's Joey Helberg and eventual runner-up Shanon Mongeau. Helberg, Scott Riggleman and Wohl were third through fifth.

Neil Rutt III of Edison took the lead early in the 25-lap race for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars while Howell's Eric Lane soon advanced to second spot. After Lane sized up his foe from second, this duo offered up a battle royal during the final laps. With bumpers and nerf bars banding and sparks flying this duo swapped the lead a couple of times before Lane came home with the win. Tommy Martino of Farmingdale, Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor and Shanon Mongeau completed the top five.

After a pre-race hot lap crash took out two of the entered cars, Shanon Mongeau came back to win the 20-lapper for the Mike's Performance Center Limited Late Models over Chris Silvestri of Hazlet. Joey Bailey won the 25-lapper for the touring Three Quarter Midgets and Chris Klotz topped the Demolition Derby.
