BLEWETT WINS WALL’S MODIFIED 100-LAPPER

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Defending Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modified driving champion Jimmy Blewett continued his impressive season on Saturday night by winning the 100-lap “Summer Scorcher” at Wall Stadium Speedway. The All American Auto Group Racing Series victory, Blewett’s seventh on the season, was worth $4,000.
Tyler Truex of Mayetta jumped to the lead at the outset while Blewett began his march to the front from the eighth starting slot. A couple of cautions slowed the early action and by lap 30 Blewett had advanced to third behind Truex and Jackson’s Steven Reed. Blewett then slipped into second on lap 46 before powering to the front in the outside lane on a lap 51 restart.
Blewett led the second half of the race but held off constant pressure from Truex who lurked in his shadow very lap. Holmdel’s Andrew Krause was third and Chas Okerson of Freehold was forth. In addition to the posted purse division sponsor Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria posted bonus money to the fifth through ninth place finishers. Reed earned purse money and a $500 bonus for fifth, while Shaun Carrig of Little Falls pocketed a $300 bonus for sixth. Seventh place finishing Jason Treat of Jackson earned a $200 bonus, while Zack Alspach of Willingboro and Adam LaCicero of Lavallette each earned a $100 bonus for their eighth and ninth place finishes, respectively.
“I know I say it over and over, but this all comes down to hard work,” Blewett said after the win. “Last night we were in the shop until 2 a.m. The night before until 1 a.m. My guys work real hard and give up a lot for the race team. I have to thank their families and my wife and family for there support. Tomorrow it is all about family time for me.”
John Carpenter of Howell took the lead early and fought off late race challenges to win the companion 25-lapper for the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks. Elliot Wohl of Beachwood and John Bowers of Pt. Pleasant both attacked the first time winner before settling for second and third, respectively. Point leader Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. and Ron Booth wrapped up the top five.
TJ Graves of Wall won his second straight Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stock 25-lap main event over Chris Silvestri of Hazlet. Neptune’s Jeff Loesch, Sal Liguori of Union Beach and Wall’s Rob Longo were third through fifth.
Howell’s Rob Silver won his first ever main event at the speedway taking to honors in the 25-lap main for the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars. Nick Van Wickle of Edgewater Park, Little Silver’s Peter Bruno, James Van Wickle and Art Marrero wrapped up the top five.

OKERSON GRABS WALL MODIFIED WIN SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ All American Auto Group Racing Series stock car driver Chas Okerson got a second chance at Wall Stadium Speedway. One week earlier while dominating the 40-lap Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria 40-lap feature race, the Freehold speedster suffered the failure of a small ignition part which not only stole away the victory but also knocked him out of the race. On Saturday night the four time Modified champion found himself in the same position as the week before, dominating the main event, and this time raced on to the victory.
While Okerson was romping out front, the big battle of the event was for second and Jackson’s Jason Treat fought off the advances of Holmdel’s Andrew Krause for nearly 30 laps to take the runner-up spot. Howell’s Jimmy Blewett and Kenny Van Wickle of Manasquan wrapped up the top five.
“As I was leading the race I was thinking about that part and how many things can go against your in a race,” Okerson said. “My family and crew go over every nut and bolt before every race and that is all you can. I thought about another part failure tonight, but I also thought about how good my crew is.”
Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. And Richie Byrne of Howell, later joined by Elliot Wohl of Bayville, wrestled furiously for the lead of the 25-lapper for the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks before point leader Montano edged ahead for his third win of the year. Montano, Byrne and Wohl were followed in the top five by Wall’s Bob Haberstick and Manchester’s Scott Riggleman.
Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson won his second Center State Engineering Sportsman 25-lapper with Howell’s Kevin Davison and his brother, Carsten DiGiantomasso, close behind. Louie Keraitis of Toms River and Michael Rising of red Bank were fourth and fifth.
Manchester’s Shanon Mongeau grabbed the win in the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Model 25-lapper over his uncle, Joe Mongeau of Brick. Long island’s Ken Matlach, Carteret’s Harry Scheaffer and Holmdel’s Dom Casola wrapped up the top five.
Nick Van Wickle of Edgewater Park won his second straight main event for the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars. Joe McGrath of of Middletown, Little Silver’s Peter Bruno, Rob Silver of Howell and James Van Wickle were second through fifth.
Cole Mullen of Brick won his first ever main event with the touring ATQMRA TQ Midgets at the track he grew up at on Saturday night. His father, veteran Wall driver Ronnie Mullen who was also in the race, joined him for an emotional victory lane celebration.
