Brewerton Speedway – Oswego County Modified Class Champ Jimmy Phelps Today
BREWERTON, NY — Jimmy Phelps has been consistent near the front of the pack at Brewerton Speedway all season in the Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds.
One thing eluded him, a journey to the path of victory. That all changed on Friday night as we headed towards victory lane after the 35-lap finale.
Phelps would battle Tom Sears Jr. for several laps for the lead when Phelps would finally see the opening he needed on lap eighteen when he was able to drive under and powered by Sears in the lead, and from there sailed to victory popular.
The other winners of the Reagan Companies night were Amy Holland (DOT Foods DIRTcar Sportsman) Larry Wight (Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints Speedweek).
The modified 35-lap feature would see Joe August lead the first three laps, when Nick Krause in his small block would lead in first place.
Krause and Tom Sears Jr. would have a close battle for the lead, with Sears dodging under and by Krause on lap ten. Jimmy Phelps was there with the top two, with August and Adam Roberts in the running for fourth and fifth.
With fifteen laps completed, Sears and Phelps were in a two-car breakaway having a close battle for the lead while Krause, August and Max McLaughlin who started tenth, showed up in the top five.
After trailing Sears for several laps, Phelps dove under Sears and took the lead on lap eighteen.
A caution on lap 20 would slow the pace, putting Phelps, Sears, Krause, McLaughlin and August in the top five for the restart.
With ten laps to go, Phelps was on rails at the bottom of the fast lane opening up a half lead straight away. Sears and McLaughlin were in a tight fight for second, with Jackson Gill and Chad Phelps in fourth and fifth.
In the final laps, no one seriously challenged Jimmy Phelps as he rode to his first win of the season. Max McLaughlin, Tom Sears Jr., Jackson Gill and Tim Sears Jr. rounded out the top five.
Nick Krause, Andrew Ferguson and Bob Henry Jr. won all 358 Modified Weekly Bonuses of $300. $200. $100.
Robert Gage would lead the first five laps of the 25-lap Sportsman feature, when Austin Germinio would drive in first place.
With ten laps posted on the scoring lap, Germinio would immediately take the lead with Gage, Zach Sobotka, Amy Holland and Chris Hulsizer locked in a tight fight for second through fifth.
Germinio still led the way with ten laps to go as Holland started to nibbling the lead with Gage, Sobotka and Hulsizer still in the top five.
On lap nineteen, Holland would use the traffic to his advantage as he passed Germinio to become the new leader.
The final caveat of the race came on lap twenty-third, setting up a green, white and checkerboard finish.
When the green came out, points leader Amy Holland was on her way to her first win of the season. Austin Germinio, Zach Sobotka, Robert Gage and Alan Frink finished second through fifth.
Twenty-nine Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints signed into the pits for their annual Speedweek.
The 25-lap A-Main would see Larry Wight take the lead at the start and on lap five would open an immediate lead while Shawn Donath, Matt Tanner, Jason Barney and Chad Miller raced in the top five.
Shawn Donath took advantage of a yellow in round six as he struggled against Wight’s header on the restart.
On lap ten, Wight did some classic sliding work to regain the lead. Behind Wight and Donath were Barney, Danny Varin and Tommy Wickham in their own battle for third to fifth place.
With ten laps to go, Wight built up a huge lead while easily putting the cars down a lap. Donath, Varin, Barney and Wickham were still in the top five.
In the remaining laps no one challenged Larry Wight the rest of the way as he won by over three seconds for his third straight win at the Brewerton Speedway ESS. Dylan Swiernik, Jason Barney, Jordan Poirier and Shawn Donath complete the top five.
Ray Bechler led the first five laps of the 15-lap Mirabito four-cylinder event before Chris Bonoffski took the lead and from there rode to victory. Eric Rawley, Damien Bechler, Ray Bechler and Clayton Koch finished second through fifth.
