PITKAT SRVIVES TO SCORE WALL MODIFIED TOUR WIN

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ The wait was well worth it for Woody Pitkat.

The Stafford, Connecticut, native outlasted all competitors in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour return to Wall Stadium Speedway on Saturday and took the checkered flag in the first event for the series at the third-mile oval in 12 years.

It was the fourth career Whelen Modified Tour win for Pitkat, and his first in four years. It was also his first win driving for Danny Watts Racing in his 21st start with the team. Pitkat took over the ride after the passing of Ted Christopher in 2017.

“The biggest thing I told the guys today was that I wasn’t going to be over-aggressive,” Pitkat said. “I figured we wouldn’t qualify that great, but I knew I just needed to be there at the end. I was just trying to ride as much as I could. I really wasn’t sure how it was going to work out.”

The race didn’t look like it was going to fall into Pitkat’s lap until the final stages. Justin Bonsignore and Andrew Krause took turns leading early before Doug Coby took control of the race on lap 66 after starting sixth. He led a race-high 72 laps.

Coby was in control of the field on a restart on lap 138, and after contact with home town favorite Krause entering turn three, both of their chances ended. Krause, who was fastest in practice and led 35 laps himself, was done for the night.

That handed the lead to former series champion Ron Silk, who looked as though he would score his second win of the young season driving for Kevin Stuart. But, a restart with just five laps remaining ended Silk’s chances as contact sent him spinning in a wreck that collected many of the cars left on the track.

From there, the battle for Pitkat was underway on a green-white-checkered restart in NASCAR overtime, Pitkat lined up to the outside of Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Timmy Catalano on the front row. At the green, Pitkat powered by to the lead and never looked back, as the No. 82 Horton Avenue Materials Chevrolet started smoking when the nerf-bar starting rubbing on the right-rear tire.

In the end Pitkat made it around to the checkered flag at the top of the field.

In the late dash, rising star and local favorite Blake Barney powered his way to a second-place finish, his career best effort in Whelen Modified Tour competition. Veteran Rob Summers was third, followed by Catalano and Dave Sapienza. Sapienza crashed into an infield barrier at the finish, but no injury was reported.

Eric Goodale was sixth, followed by Ken Heagy, Ron Silk, Tommy Catalano and Doug Coby.

Kyle Scisco of Jackson won his second 25-lap main event of the young season in the companion Center State Engineering Sportsman main event. Scisco's win came after he and fellow Jackson resident Jarret DiGiantomasso touched and tangled on a couple of occasions during the closing laps. Mancester's Shanon Mongeau was able to slip into second spot in front of Carsten DiGiantomasso while Christian LaCicero of Lavallette and Howell's Kevin Davison wrapped up the top five.

Elliott Wohl of Beachwood led most of the way to top the 25-lapper for the O'Shea's Auto Repair Factory Stocks. Defending class champion Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. was the runner-up, while Farmingdale's Kenny Green, Tim Majek of Scotch Plains and Union's Joey Helberg wrapped up the top five.

Neil Rutt III of Edison took the lead on lap 17 and won the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks. Early leader Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City was second, with Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim, Edison's Darianne McLaren and Brick's Randy Hart were third through fifth.

The 2019 Saturday night regular season then continues on Saturday (May 25) evening with the Modifieds, Sportsman cars, Legend Cars and the Limited Late Models in action The open cockpit Three Quarter Midgets will make their first appearance of the season.

Bridgeport Speedway MASS Winner Jeff Geiges (Rick Sweeten Photo)



It was South Jersey Overhead Door Night at the Bridgeport Speedway for the first race on the Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile track.

Speedway management hoped for a big enough window in the weather to complete the Saturday night show but the window closed as the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman cars took to the track. One lap was completed before the rains came. The cars stayed on the track at first to try to preserve the surface. The starting line-up was then sent to the pits and returned a few minutes later when the rain stopped. But before the race could be restarted, the rain came again, forcing the cancellation of the rest of the show.

South Jersey Overhead Door competitor, Wayne Weaver was the race leader at the end of one lap. This race as well as the Spirit Auto Center Big Block feature will be rescheduled at a later date.

The DA’s Auto Body & Repair Rookies opened the show with their second feature event of the season. Scott Maher, Jr. jumped out to the early lead. Maher led every lap with last week’s winner, Justin Moench following in his tracks. Maher picked up his first victory over Moench and Kathy Buzby.

The Delaware Auto Exchange Mid Atlantic Sprint Series took to the track for their twenty lap feature event earlier in the evening. Jeff Geiges raced to the outside to take the lead as Mark Bitner, Jason Dunn, Andy Best and Tom Carberry followed.

Geiges led the way through the first eight laps with the first caution coming at the start of lap nine as third place competitor, Dunn, spun on entrance to turn one. Another caution followed when several cars tangled in turn two. The result was the No. 39x of Scott Frack taking a ride. There were no injuries.

Geiges restarted from the outside and maintained his lead over Bitner. Best, Carberry and Jon Haegele completed the top five at the half way mark.

The red flag was needed on lap thirteen as contact was made between the cars of Bryant Davis and Dave Brown. Brown ended up going over but neither driver was injured.

Geiges drove to his first win of the season and his first on the Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile track. Geiges credited his family, his crew and his sponsors for the win. After making adjustments throughout the night, Geiges had the winning combination. “Clean air is so important in these cars,” Geiges explained after the win.

Rick Stief, 2018 MASS Champion, Tim Tanner, Ricky DiEva, Larry McVay and Eddie Wagner rounded out the top ten.
Jason Dunn, Geiges and Best were the winners of the three MASS heat races.

Matt Peck and Jim Gallagher, Jr. picked the victories in the qualifiers for the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman.

David Hunt and Billy Pauch were the winners in the Spirit Auto Center Big Block Modified heat races.
Racing will continue on the Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile track next Saturday as the Spirit Auto Center Big Block Modifieds, South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman, Sunbelt Rentals Outlaw Stocks and DA’s Auto Body & Repairs Rookies. Sunbelt Rentals will be the sponsor for the first Bike Night of the 2019 season. Motorcyclists will be admitted free. Their bikes will be displayed throughout the night with awards being given in certain categories. A number of lucky boys and girls will go home with a brand new bicycle, courtesy of the competitors of the Bridgeport Speedway. Racing gets underway 6:30.

DA’S AUTO BODY & REPAIR ROOKIES (8 laps ) – 1. Scott Maher, Jr., 2. Justin Moench, 3. Kathy Buzby

PAPIEZ PILOTS HIS MODIFIED TO VICTORY LANE AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY

New Egypt, NJ (May 12, 2019) – At New Egypt Speedway’s Bordentown/Chesterfield Night, Brian Papiez piloted his ride into victory lane as he won the Vahlco Wheels Modified feature. JT Trstensky was declared the winner in the Hammer Sportsman race. The Larry's Hot Rods & Harley's Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars main event was claimed by Rich Mellor. Jon Meyer won the Street Stock contest while DJ Hunt took top honors in the Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman race.

As the 30-lap Vahlco Wheel Modified feature began, outside polesitter Brian Papiez sprinted out to the front. After a quartet of caution periods and six tours recorded, Papiez was still on top with TJ Lilly, fourteenth place starter Billy Pauch Jr. and PJ Oliver next in line. By lap ten, Papiez had built a solid advantage over Lilly and Pauch Jr. with Danny Bouc advancing into fourth and Oliver falling back into fifth. At the halfway point, Papiez’s margin was nearly a full-straightaway over Lilly, Pauch Jr., Bouc and David VanHorn. With seven circuits remaining, Papiez was beginning to approach the tail end of the field with Lilly and Pauch Jr. dueling for second. On lap twenty-six, Pauch Jr. swung by Lilly to gain second place. Over the final revolutions, Papiez continued his torrid pace to grab his second win of the season. Pauch Jr. captured the runner-up position. Bouc and VanHorn were able to pass Lilly as well in the closing laps to finish third and fourth respectively. Lilly finished in fifth. Cale Ross, Brian Papiez and Danny Bouc were victors in the Vahlco Wheels Modified heat races.

In the rain shortened Hammer Sportsman feature, JT Trstensky was declared the winner of the 12-lap affair. Ryan Heim crossed the line finish line first but his car failed to make the minimum weight. The victory was the second of Trstensky’s career. David Burns took second place. Will Trstensky, Steve Davis and Joseph Brown filled out the top five. Jason Kosch and Art Liedl won the Hammer Sportsman heat races.

In the 20-lap main event for the Larry's Hot Rods & Harley's Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars, Rich Mellor held off John Brammell on a final tour restart to claim his second checkered flag of the season. Mellor took the lead from Jermain Godshall with five circuits left. With Brammell finishing second, Heidi Hedin came home in third. Duane Nixon was fourth and Stan Ploski completed the race in fifth. The Larry's Hot Rods & Harley's Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars qualifying races were taken by Rich Mellor and Al Cheney.

Jon Meyer passed Bill Liedtka with five circuits remaining and led the remaining distance to grab the victory in the 15-lap Street Stock race. The win was the second in a row for Meyer. With Liedtka taking second, Vern McLaughlin came home in third. Billy Wroble and Brian Ludwig rounded out the top five.

DJ Hunt led from start to finish to capture his first win in the 8-lap Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman race. Ryan Godown Jr. slipped by Anthony Tramontana Jr. on the last circuit to take the runner-up spot. Ryan Krushinski was fourth and Zachary Merola finished fifth.
