ANDREW KRAUSE WINS DAD'S MEMORIAL RACE AT WALL SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Using speed, handling and a strategy that included a late race pit stop for two new tires, Andrew Krause of Holmdel raced through the field in the closing 28 laps to win the third annual “Cliff Krause Memorial” presented by NAPA Auto Parts Modified stock car race at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. Andrew Krause also won the first edition of the event in 2018.

The race, which paid $7,127 to the winner, is contested each season to honor the man who is credited by most for reestablishing the third mile paved oval's rich racing heritage. Cliff Krause passed away in January, 2018, of natural causes. His family continues to operate the speedway.

2019 race winner Eric Mauriello of Brick was the first leader of the contest as Krause began his climb to the front of the 24-car field from a 12th starting spot. Mauriello fought off a host of contenders, including Jason Hearne of New Egypt, Jon Mandato of Toms River, Tyler Truex of Little Egg Harbor and Howell's Jimmy Blewett, through the caution plagued first 79 laps. During a lap 79 caution Mauriello and many of his fellow top runners ducked into the pit area for tires and Krause took over the lead.

During the following 20 laps the new tires on the top runners' cars proved to be important as the group tracked down Krause. Krause then elected to pit on lap 99 for two new tires and the added traction propelled him from the rear of the field to the front. Krause then wrestled for the top spot with 15 laps remaining before securing the lead and racing on the to emotional win. Blewett and Mauriello were second and third, while Steven Reed of Jackson, who was always in contention, was fourth and Truex was fifth.

'I wish my dad was here to enjoy this win with me,” Krause said after the race. 'He was my best friend and I miss him so much. He loved this place just like my mother and sister do. Wall Stadium meant a lot to him.

“I have to thank my family and everyone who works on the car for this. I think a lot of people were second guessing us when we pitted late for tires. I guess it worked!”

Former champion Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. won the companion 25-lap race for the Factory Stocks, grabbing the lead from Howell's John Carpenter near the 20-lap mark. Elliot Wohl of Beachwood, Rahway's Billy Both and point leader Bryan O'Shea of Neptune City wrapped up the top four. Carpenter was fifth.

Point leader Ryan Maher of Neptune City raced to the lead on lap 18 and took his third win of the season in the 4 Cylinder Stock 25-lap race. Alonzo Morales of Burlington raced to second and early leader Ian Ashford of Farmingdale was third. Hazlet's Sal Liguori and Billy Pross of Hazlet were fourth and fifth.

Mike Alcaro of New Milford took the lead early and never looked back in winning the Legend Cars 25-lapper. Riley O'Keefe, Wall's Rob Silver, Peter Bruno of Little Silver and Quinn Trimmer of Waldwick wrapped up the top five.

The 2020 Saturday night regular season continues this Saturday (Sept. 26) evening with the Modified stock cars racing in a 40-lap event while the Factory Stocks, 4 Cylinder Stocks, Sportsman cars and the Limited Late Models are on the card in 25-lap main events.

RUTT WINS WALL STADIUM SPORTSMAN RACE SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Third generation stock car driver Neil Rutt III of Edison raced through the pack to win the 25-lap Sportsman stock can feature race Saturday night at Wall Stadium Speedway. It was the first win of the 2020 season for last season's 4 Cylinder Stock Driving Champion.

A handful of cautions for minor incidents slowed the early going before Eyres took the lead near lap ten as Rutt followed him through for second. Rutt then shadowed Eyres until the 14th lap when Eyres drifted high in turn two and Rutt dove low to take the lead. Carsten DiGiantomasso of Jackson then took over second and haunted Rutt to the finish line. Eyres held on for third, with Jake Nelke of Manahawkin and Jackson's Jarret DiGiantomasso fourth and fifth.

“We have had a couple of tough races this season, but when you see how hard your car owner and crew members work you just keep digging,” Rutt said in the winner's circle. “You just never give up!”

O'Shea then took the lead near lap 20 and raced on to the win over the challenges of Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y.. Billy Both of Rahway, Tom Rajkowski of Fords and Brick's Kevin Flores completed the top five.

COSS WINS WILD WALL STADIUM MODIFIED RACE SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Modified stock car racer Roger Coss admitted that, after the first lap of the 40-lap race Saturday night at Wall Stadium Speedway, if you told him he would end up the Modified feature winner he would not have believed you. The Lafayette based driver, who races here only as time allows, was making his first appearance of the season. Mechanical problems burdened his No. 17 during early evening practice and more problems developed during qualifying forcing him to start last in the 22-car field. Things then only got worse for Coss as he was involved in a first lap accident. Fortunately, he was able to continue.

After battling with Matawan's Anthony Sesely at the outset, Holmdel's Andrew Krause was the early leader until a fluid leak forced him to the pit area for the night. Kevin Davison of Howell, Brick's Eddie McCarthy and Ron Frees of Lanoka Harbor then wrestled for the lead through several cautions as Coss picked his way to the front..

A big turning point came on a lap 19 restart when McCarthy and Frees, who were fighting for the lead, tangled exiting turn four. The ensuing restart saw Davison and Coss fight for first before Coss was able to slip into the lead and then race on to the win. Davison was the runner-up, while Jackson's Jason Treat, Ricky Collins of Willow Grove, Pa. and Jason Hearne of New Egypt completed the top five.

“First off, I want to dedicate this win to my father,” Coss said in the winner's circle. “He has been with my racing since the start, but we lost him during the off season. I don't get to race as often as I'd like to now because I an a one man show in the race shop. The way things were going earlier this evening I never thought I could win tonight. You just have to keep pushing.”

When the first 18 laps of the Sportsman 25-lapper went off without a hitch, everyone thought a clean race was on the slate. But once the first caution flag waved many more followed. Robert Sutphin of Brick and Manahawkin's Jake Nelke were the top two in a big pack in the final laps before a big scramble ensued before Nelke crossed the finish line first.

The official order of finish then changed, however, when officials announced that, in their opinion, Nelke contributed to the race ending scramble and awarded the win to Sutphin. Neil Rutt III of Edison, Freehold's Tomas Stainionis, Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson and Howell's Eric Lane were second through fifth.

Wall's T.J. Graves took the lead just before the halfway point and raced on to win the 4 Cylinder Stock 25 lapper. Sal Liguori of Hazlet crossed the finish line second, while point leader Ryan Maher of Neptune City, William Cross of Hazlet and Sean Vuksanic of Wall wrapped up the top five.

Peter Bruno of Little Silver grabbed his first win of the year in the Legend Cars 25-lapper. Quinn Trimmer of Waldwick, Red Bank's Eric Green, Brick's Bryan Gardella and Joe Przybylinski of Fairfield completed the top five.

Jeff Kott took the win in the 25-lap race for the visiting Three Quarter Midgets over Geo Sutton, Ryan Tidman, Joey Bailey and Tim Proctor.

The 2020 Saturday night regular season continues this Saturday (Sept. 12) evening with the Sportsman cars, Factory Stocks, 4 Cylinder Stocks, Legend Cars and Limited Late Models all seeing action in “Carnival Night” main events. The pit area will open at 1:00 p.m. Grandstands will open at 4:30 p.m., qualifying starts at 5:30 p.m. and main event action starts at 7:00 p.m.

CONE RACES FOR STOCK CARS AT WALL SATURDAY (AUG. 29)

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ All of the fans who attend this Saturday (Aug. 29) evening’s stock car racing events at Wall Stadium Speedway will be rewarded with high-speed action from five racing divisions in “Cone Races” on the high-banked third mile paved oval. Modified, Sportsman, Factory Stock, 4 Cylinder Stock and Limited Late Model racers will all be in the spotlight.

Grandstand seating will open Saturday at 4:30 p.m., qualifying is set for 5:30 p.m. and main event racing will follow at 7:00 p.m.

The Modified 40-lap “Cone Race” main event on the night is important in the race for the season-long driving title. Two-time winner Blake Barney of Jackson has looked strong in early season action as have former champ Steven Reed of Jackson, Jimmy Blewett of Howell, Andrew Krause of Holmdel and Toms River's Derek Hopkinson, to name a few.

Also on the card will be 25-lap “Cone Races” for the 4 Cylinder Stocks, Sportsman cars, Limited Late Models and the Factory Stocks.

In a “Cone Race” a traffic cone is placed on the backstretch at the one-to-go sign for a restart. Any driver can choose to go inside the cone or outside the cone. If the first four drivers choose the inside, for example, the fifth place driver can choose the outside and move up to the front row. Does a driver take the preferred inside groove and restart further back on the inside, or does he or she choose the shorter line of cars on the outside and hope he or she can make it stick? That’s the issue each driver will face on each restart.

Pit gates will open at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday; with practice starting at 3:00 p.m. Grandstands will open at 4:30 p.m., qualifying is then set for 5:30 p.m. with main events for all divisions to follow.
