SCISCO, MONGEAU (2), O’SHEA, RUTT AND LOESCH ARE WALL STOCK CAR WINNERS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Kyle Scisco of Jackson stayed in contention throughout the 25-lap main event and took over the lead late in the contest to win the Spooky Spectacular Center State Engineering Sportsman stock car feature Saturday at Wall Stadium Speedway. It was the Scisco Kid’s fourth win the the 2018 All American Auto Group Racing Series.

Louie Keraitis of Toms River led the race from the first green flag as brothers Carsten and Jarret DiGiantomasso, both of Jackson, moved into contention along with Scisco. Jarret DiGiantomasso left the race on lap 18 when he tagged the front stretch rail. Keraitis and Carsten DiGiantomasso then saw their great runs end on lap 21 when they tangled in the first turn with Keraitis spinning as a result. Officials then determined that Carsten DiGiantomasso contributed to the miscue and sent him to the rear of the pack.

That moved Scisco to the front with newly crowned champion Kevin Davison of Howell, who recovered from early trouble, racing in for second. Jackson’s Shanon Mongeau, Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor and Kyle Strohl of Palmerton, Pa. wrapped up the top five.

“We were a little off on the set-up today so we didn’t have our best car,” Scisco said after the race. “But it was good enough to stay in contention and that is what we needed.”

Shannon Mongeau had a great day with two wins in four feature race starts. In the first O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stock 25-lapper he jumped to the lead early and led all the way to the checker flag with Farmingdale’s Kenny Green, newly crowned champion Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y., Eatontown’s Ron Booth and Elliot Wohl of Beachwood wrapping up the top five.

Shanon Mongeau then won the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Model 20-lapper with a similar wire-to-wire run over his uncle Joe Mongeau of Brick and Mike Tillett of Bayville.

In the second Factory Stock feature race Wall’s Bryan O’Shea jumped to the lead early, fought off mid-race challenges from Booth and then beat Mongeau to the finish line for his first ever 25-lap win. Montano, Tom Rajkowski of Fords and Booth completed the top five.

Neil Rutt III of Jackson took the lead early and then raced on to win a 25-lap race for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks, his fourth of the year. Newly crowned champion Brian Osborn of Howell, Lavallette’s Christian LaCicero, Brick’s Randy Hart and Chris Silvestri of Hazlet wrapped up the top five. In the 25-lap nightcap Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City led almost all the way for the win over Rutt, Brick’s Robert Sutphin, Osborn and LaCicero.

Wall Stadium returns to action on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, during the daylight hours, of Thanksgiving weekend with the annual running of the “Turkey Derby.” The three day schedule, which will feature Tour Type Modified and Wall’s own Modified stock cars, will be announced soon and will be posted on the speedway website at wallspeedwayracing.com.

MAURIELLO MOTORS TO MODIFIED WIN AT WALL SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ In front of a large crowd that had gathered for NAPA Auto Parts Fan Appreciation Night action and an on-track party, Eric Mauriello was dominant in racing from the rear of the pack to win the 40-lap main event for the Pete & Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modified stock cars at Wall Stadium Speedway. The Howell speedster’s Saturday night win was his first victory of the 2018 All American Auto Group Racing Series.

The race did not start well for Mauriello as a first turn scramble at the initial green flag found his No. 31 sitting on the track in the wrong direction. He then righted his car for the restart and immediately began his march to the front. Jackson’s Jason Treat jumped to the early lead and was soon fighting off Manasquan’s Kenny Van Wickle and then Derek Hopkinson of Toms River for the glory. Meanwhile, Mauriello was charging to the front and arrived in third by the halfway mark. Without the benefit of a restart Mauriello then advanced to second by lap 30 and then dove to the inside lane to take the lead for good one lap later.

Mauriello then stretched his advantage to the checker flag with Treat, Hopkinson, point leader Jimmy Blewett of Howell and Jackson’s Steven Reed completing the top five.

“I am just so happy for Steve Ferrara and everyone who works on this car,” Mauriello said in the winner’s circle. “They pour their heart and soul into this team and we’ve had some disappointing outings. After that first lap mess when we were pointed in the wrong direction I thought this could be another one of those disappointing races. But they had this car running so fast! I think it was the best it has ever been!”

After his own fair share of disappointment this season Michael Rising of Red Bank raced to the win in the 25-lapper for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars. Rising took the lead on a lap seven restart, the final one of the event, and raced on to the impressive win. Point leader Kevin Davison of Howell was the runner-up, with Eddie McCarthy of Pt. Pleasant, Jackson’s Carsten DiGiantomasso and title contender Kyle Scisco of Jackson wrapping up the top five. Title contender Eric Lane of Howell suffered a reported broken wrist in a lap five tangle was was credited with 14th.

Shanon Mongeau of Jackson had a big night by winning both the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Model and O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stock 25-lap races. In the Limited Late Model ranks, where he has been undefeated this season, Mongeau was chased across the line by Joe Mongeau of Brick, Carteret’s Harry Schaeffer, Dom Casola of Holmdel and Bayville’s Mike Tillett.

In the Factory stock race Mongeau took the lead for good on lap 18 and was followed to the finish by point leader Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y., Beachwood’s Elliott Wohl, John Bowers of Pt. Pleasant and Gerry Koenig of Seaford, N.Y.

TJ Graves of Wall took the lead on lap six and raced to win the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks. Neil Rutt III crossed the finish line second but was moved to eighth in the final order for what officials felt was avoidable contact. Point leader Brian Osborn of Howell was officially second, with AJ Jadacki, Chris Silvestri and Nicole Razzano completing the top five.

Championship point leader Nick Van Wickle of Edgewater Park won his fourth Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars 25-lapper of the year over Peter Bruno of Little Silver, Joe Przybylinski, James Van Wickle and Roger Nickerson.

The All American Auto Group Racing Series regular season wraps up this Saturday with Champion’s Night action when the 2018 title winners will be crowned.
