GULAR BESTS FIELD OF 77 MODIFIEDS AT OCFS, DECKER NORTH REGION CHAMP

MIDDLETOWN, NY – Second verse, better than the first.

In May, Pennsylvania small-block standout Mike Gular made his first-career start at the legendary Orange County Fair Speedway, finishing a respectable 11th On Thursday, Gular returned for the Behrent’s Performance Warehouse ‘Hard Clay Finale’ to kick off Eastern States Weekend and fared better – much better.

Gular, of Boyertown, Pa., upset a stacked field to win the Halmar International North Region finale for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco big-block/small-block Modifieds at the five-eighths-mile facility.

For the most lucrative victory of his career, Gular and his Terry Fasnacht-owned team pocketed $10,250 – $10,000 from the posted purse, $200 as the Superior Remodeling Halfway Leader and $50 from Rock Fantasy as a heat-race winner.

Gular started from the pole, but relinquished the lead at the outset to track regular Jerry Higbie. On lap nine, he reclaimed the top spot and authored a mistake-free drive for the remainder of the race’s 50 grueling laps.

“Of all the places we went this year for the series, can you believe I won one here?” Gular exclaimed after climbing to the roof of his big-block-powered No. 2A Bicknell mount.

Sidney, N.Y.’s Billy Decker, meanwhile, drove the Jeremy Smith Racing No. 91 to a conservative ninth-place finish after starting 17th and clinched the $12,500 STSS Halmar International North Region championship. While winless on the series, Decker’s consistency led him to the ultimate prize by a margin of just two points.

Gular, the champion at his home track of Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pa., showed speed in his qualifying performance. But it was Higbie – in the United Pump & Tank-sponsored No. 48 – who got the jump at the start of the main.

Gular stalked Higbie before working to his inside on the ninth tour to take over the lead.

But the challenge was far from over.

Gular not only had to conserve the rubber on his American Racer tires. He also had to stave off challenges from a number of drivers who occupied the runner-up spot during the remainder of the distance.

Higbie, Andy Bachetti, Matt Sheppard and ultimately Mat Williamson took shots at the leader.

However, it was Gular – who has attended every 2018 Short Track Super Series event in both the Halmar International North Region and Velocita-USA South Region – outrunning the field.

Gular became the 28th different winner in the 64-race history of the Short Track Super Series.

St. Catharines, Ont., native Williamson earned $5,050 as the runner-up in the Behrent’s Performance Warehouse No. 3, chasing Gular to the finish. Williamson ended the ’18 STSS North Region with back-to-back runner-up efforts.

After starting 11th, Middletown, N.Y.’s Anthony Perrego advanced to third ($4,000), filling out the podium in Brian Smith’s Superior Remodeling No. 44 small-block. Perrego fell just two points shy of earning the series championship.

Wallkill, N.Y.’s Tyler Dippel, who has been competing in NASCAR K&N East and Camping World Truck Series competition, made a rare dirt Modified start and authored an impressive drive from 21st to finish fourth, worth $2,500. Mike Mahaney of King Ferry, N.Y., advanced to fifth in the Buzz Chew Racing No. 88 ($1,800). Mahaney started 15th.

Finishing sixth through 10th, respectively, were Stewart Friesen of Sprakers, N.Y., who blasted through the field to sixth in the Halmar International No. 44 after pitting for fresh tires on lap 33 ($1,500); Newburgh, N.Y.’s Higbie, who led early on ($1,400); Hard Charger Danny Creeden of Wurtsboro, N.Y., up from 30th on the grid (a series provisional) earning $200 from Land Hoe Maintenance, a $200 Beyea Custom Headers Certificate and $50 QA1 Certificate ($1,000); series champion Decker ($1,200); and track regular Craig ‘Hollywood’ Mitchell of Wappingers Falls, N.Y., who had run as high as fourth ($1,150).

A record field of 77 STSS Modifieds attempted to qualify for the ‘Hard Clay Finale’ requiring seven heat races. Winners received $50 cash from Rock Fantasy Concert Shop and $50 certificates courtesy of Beyea Custom Headers. Heat victors were Stan Frankenfield, Higbie, Sheppard, Ryan Godown, Williamson, Gular and Sam Martz.

Consolation wins went to Brian Krummel, Shane Jablonka and Mike Ricci.

A special 3-lap Last Chance Qualifier saw Allison Ricci gain the 28th starting position for the main. Drivers missing a qualified spot by one in each of the consolations took part in this event.

For the first time, 360 Sprint Cars joined the STSS Modifieds on the ‘Hard Clay Finale’ program.

In a down-to-the-wire 25-lap event, Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg, Pa., held off a relentless Davie Franek to earn a $3,000 payday for his R.C. Faigle-backed Pabst Blue Ribbon team.

Wolfe started fifth and avoided a multi-car tangle in turn two on the race’s opening lap. Then, he jetted past outside-pole starter Franek to lead the second lap.

Franek was not done, however.

In the race’s final five laps, Franek powered his car to the topside and reeled in Wolfe, nearly pulling even with the leader entering turn three coming to the checkered flag. Wolfe prevailed off the fourth turn to take the win.

Franek, from nearby Wantage, N.J., placed second, followed by a rim-riding Billy Van Inwegen of Sparrowbush, N.Y., Montrose, N.Y., native turned North Carolina resident Justin Barger and Binghamton, N.Y.’s Coleman Gulick, who started 16th.

360 Sprint Car winners were Barger and Franek.

Next up for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series Fueled By Sunoco is Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend at Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, Del., Friday-Saturday October 26-27. The Velocita-USA South Region Modified title will be decided along with the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman championship. 10 divisions of racing are planned over the two days.

FRIESEN ROMPS TO HARD CLAY OPEN WIN AT OCFS TUESDAY (5-8-18)

MIDDLETOWN, NY – He just keeps on winning.

For the 11th time in his career with the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco, Stewart Friesen romped to victory in Tuesday night’s ‘Hard Clay Open’ at Orange County Fair Speedway.

The Sprakers, N.Y., driver earned a $5,200 payday in the opener for the STSS Halmar International North Region at the five-eighths-mile oval in dominant fashion after starting seventh in the 30-car feature field.

“These guys gave me an awesome car tonight,” offered Friesen, 34, after exiting his Halmar-backed No. 44. “When you’re out front you never know who’s coming, especially here. It’s a long race.”

A field of 48 talented STSS big-block/small-block Modified drivers signed in for the first midweek show under a new era of racing at OCFS under the Orange Motorsport and Entertaining LLC banner.

The 50-lap fifth annual ‘Hard Clay Open’ saw Mike Mahaney’s Buzz Chew No. 88 lead the field to the green flag. Ryan Godown, however, put the Lincoln Auto Body No. 5 into the top spot on the opening tour.

Friesen cracked the top-five on lap five. A lap later, he advanced to third behind Godown and Mahaney.

On lap eight, Friesen slipped past Mahaney to the runner-up spot.

Two circuits later, he took over a lead he wouldn’t relinquish.

Behind Friesen, battles raged throughout the top-10.

Godown’s stellar drive derailed with 15 laps remaining when he slowed on the frontstretch with a flat left-rear tire.

Rick Laubach then inherited second in the Ryan Kerr-owned No. 1K.

Despite three cautions inside the final dozen laps, Friesen’s only challenges came on restarts as he was able to pull away during green-flag runs.

“These Short Track Super Series races attract the best drivers from all over,” Friesen said. “It always feels good when you can get a win in one of these shows.”

Hellertown, Pa.’s Laubach enjoyed a steady drive to place runner-up after starting fifth.

“We’re trying to run the whole series – North and South – this year,” Laubach said. “I really wanted to get off to a good clean start here to have a good points position going into the next few races and we did that.”

Driving Steve Lowitt’s United Pump & Tank No. 48, Newburgh, N.Y.’s Jerry Higbie completed the podium. Higbie started ninth and battled back-and-forth on restarts to earn his third-place result.

“That was fun racing out there,” Higbie said. “Every restart I was counting off cars hoping I’d be on the outside. I’d gain a few, get caught in the wrong line and lose a few. This series is the best around.”

After starting 23rd as a consolation winner, OCFS all-time leading winner Brett Hearn of Sussex, N.J., drove to fourth at the finish, surging forward in the race’s second half.

Billy Decker of Unadilla, N.Y., however, was the race’s Hard Charger in Jeremy Smith’s No. 91. Decker started 25th and drove to fifth, an advance of 20 positions. He received $500 courtesy of Grand Rental Station Middletown, $200 from Land Hoe Maintenance and product from QA1 and Beyea Headers.

Finishing sixth through 10th, respectively, were Mahaney, of King Ferry, N.Y.; Tommy Meier of Waldwick, N.J., driving the Jeff Behrent-owned No. 3; Matt Sheppard of Waterloo, N.Y., who pitted for a tire and to repair a right-side sail panel issue on lap nine with the Hurlock Auto & Speed ride; Duane Howard of Oley, Pa., in the first-ever appearance by Norm Hansell’s No. 357 on the Hard Clay; and veteran Jeff Heotzler of Wallkill, N.Y., who recovered from a flat tire on lap 18.

Heat winners – receiving $50 cash from Rock Fantasy Concert, Smoke Shop & Pinball Room of Middletown and product certificates from Beyea Headers – were Mahaney, Meier, Laubach, Godown and Higbie. Consolation victors were Heotzler, Billy Pauch Jr. and Brett Hearn. Bob McGannon won the 3-lap Last Chance Qualifier.

A late arrival to the speedway, Brad Horton pocketed $1,000 in the accompanying OCFS Sportsman 20-lap main. Horton started last in the final heat race after missing the initial draw for position. He worked through for a redraw position and started the main from fourth on the grid.

Horton worked forward and grabbed a lead he wouldn’t relinquish at the midway point of the main.

“We did our homework on this car,” offered Horton. “It definitely paid off tonight.”

Mel Schrufer pressed the leader late in the event, earning a $500 runner-up finish, with Pennsylvania teenager Alex Yankowski in third followed by 12th-starter Cory Cormier and Tyler Johnston, who started 11th.

Crate 602 Sportsman heat winners were Corey Cormier, Jesse Leiby and Johnston. All 27 cars present started the main.

Racing resumes for the STSS on Memorial Day Weekend with a doubleheader. On Thursday, May 24 Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Del., hosts Round No. 3 of the STSS Velocita-USA South Region plus Crate 602 Sportsman (Race No. 3) and Delaware Super Trucks.

On Sunday, May 27 the STSS Halmar North Region returns to action at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Center Lisle, N.Y., plus the opener for the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman North Series and Street Stocks.

MIDDLETOWN, NY – A one-month delay has only built more anticipation for the ‘Hard Clay Open’ at Orange County Fair Speedway Tuesday, May 8.

This event marks the first midweek event under the Orange Motorsports & Entertainment LLC management group topped by Chris Larsen of Halmar International and general manager Michael Gurda IV.
