BLEWETT (MODS), ALCARO AND KORNER (LEGEND CARS) ARE WALL WINNERS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Current Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modified stock car point leader Jimmy Blewett used not only speed, but also evasive driving techniques, to win the 40-lap All American Auto Group Racing Series main event at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. It was the Howell resident’s ninth win of the campaign.
Manasquan’s Kenny Van Wickle looked strong as he jumped to the lead at the outset. Meanwhile, Derek Hopkinson of Toms River, Jackson’s Steven Reed, Holmdel’s Andrew Krause and Blewett were fighting for second through fifth positions. When this battle finally overheated cars spun and tagged the rail but Blewett was able to avoid the carnage to advance to second. On the restart Blewett powered to the front in the outside lane and raced on to the win. Van Wickle was an impressive second, while Tyler Truex of Mayetta, Howell’s Eric Mauriello and Shaun Carrig of Little Falls completed the top five.
“You need to have a perfect car to be able to avoid things like that,” Blewett said. “You have to be able to steer it and it needs to go where you put it. My guys work real hard to give me a perfect car and it shows.”
The Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars share top billing with twin 25 lap main events with Mike Alcaro of West Milford and Noah Korner of Canton, Connecticut taking the wins.
The first race saw Korner lead early before Alcaro arrived at the head of the pack and took the lead with three laps to go. Korner nailed down second in this one with his brother Glen Korner finishing third. Alex McCollum of Phillipsburg and James Sylvester of Massapequa, N.Y. wrapped up the top five.
In the Legend Cars nightcap Korner took the lead by lap three and fought off McCollum at the finish. Howell’s Rob Silver, Nick Van Wickle of Edgewater Park and Peter Bruno of Little Silver completed the top five.
Howell’s Kevin Davison took the top spot from early leader Michael Rising of Red Bank with just four laps remaining to win the Center State Engineering Sportsman 25-lap feature. Kyle Scisco of Jackson was second at the stripe, while Howell’s Eric Lane, and brothers Carsten and Jarret DiGiantomasso, both of Jackson, wrapped up the top five.
A.J. Jadacki of West Freehold won his first ever 25-lap main event for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks in impressive fashion. Darianne McLaren of Edison crossed the line in second with Chris Silvestri of Hazlet, Nicole Razzano of Cookstown and Jeff Loesch of Neptune City finishing third through fifth.

BLEWETT (MODS), WOHL, BYRNE AND BOWERS (FACTORY STOCKS) EARN WALL WINS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ One of the largest crowds of the 2018 All American Auto Group Racing Series witnessed seven feature races at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night with Howell’s Jimmy Blewett taking his eighth Modified win of the year. With three main events on the schedule for the Factory Stocks Beachwood’s Elliot Wohl, Howell’s Richie Byrne and John Bowers of Pt. Pleasant were all winners on Snap On Tools Night.
Blewett started deep in the field in the Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modified 40-lapper and immediately started his run to the front. An early race scramble then claimed Blewett who was forced to duck into the pit area for repairs. Derek Hopkinson of Toms River and Manasquan’s Kenny Van Wickle then wrestled for the top spot before Blewett completed his run to the front and took over the top spot on lap eight. Blewett then led the rest of the way but was forced to fight off several attacks from Hopkinson. Howell’s Eric Mauriello and Steven Reed and Jason Treat, both of Jackson, wrapped up the top five.
“Tonight was for everyone who says we can’t pass on the outside,” Blewett said after the race. “Derek (Hopkinson) has a team on a budget and they do a great job. He gave me a lot of pressure.”
Elliot Wohl came from deep in the field to win the first of three 25-lappers for the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks. He finally powered to the top spot for good on lap 21 and was chased across the finish line by point leader Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y., Howell’s Steve West, Byrne and Tom Rajkowski of Fords.
After a season of bad fortunes third generation driver Byrne also passed a lot of cars to grab his victory in the second Factory Stock feature. Byrne took the lead on lap seven and was chased across the line by Manchester’s Scott Riggleman, Wohl, Montano and West.
Bowers jumped to the lead early and never looked back to claim his first win on five years in the Factory Stock nightcap. Wohl, Riggleman, Ron Booth of Eatontown and Montano were second through fifth in this one.
Kyle Scisco of Jackson raced to his first victory of the year in the 25-lap Center State Engineering Sportsman feature event. Louie Keraitis of Toms River led early before spinning from the top spot near halfway. Scisco then raced into the lead and on to the win followed by a top five of Jake Nelke of Manahawkin, Farmingdale’s John McCormick, Mike Brennan of Morristown and Jackson’s Carsten DiGiantomasso.
Shannon Mongeau of Manchester beat his uncle Joe Mongeau of Brick to the finish line after a torrid battle to win the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Model 25-lap main event. Holmdel’s Dom Casola, Mike Tillett of Bayville and Jackson’s Greg Gastelu wrapped up the top five.
Nick Van Wickle of Edgewater Park won his third Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars 25-lapper Saturday night over Chris Gall of Brick and Peter Bruno of Little Silver.
