BLEWETT GRABS MODIFIED WIN AT WALL SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ By both avoiding a couple of accidents and passing several cars in the early going Jimmy Blewett of Howell raced to victory in the 40-lap Downs Ford Modified stock car main event at Wall Stadium Saturday night. It was his first win of the season here.

Jason Treat of Jackson was the early leader as Blewett began his march to the front from 14th on the grid. A couple of cautions for minor incidents slowed the pace early and Blewett was able to move into striking distance. Blewett then chased Treat for a couple of laps before taking the lead for good.

Howell’s Eric Mauriello, who was debuting a new car, soon charged into second and chased Blewett to the finish. Derek Hopkinson of Toms River, Howell’s Justin Gumley and Trevor Alspach of Willingboro wrapped up the top five.

“Troyer Race Cars has really come up with a great car and Rob Ormsbee knows the details to make it fast,” Blewett said. “As far as getting through those accidents I guess you can say I have a guardian angel up there.”

Shanon Mongeau of Manchester won his second Snap On Sportsman race in three starts Saturday night. He chased down early leader Larry Thompson of Parlin in the early going before the duo touched exiting turn two on the 23rd lap. With Thompson momentarily loosing control Mongeau was able to race the final seven circuits to the win. Kevin Davison of Howell was the runner up with Ricky Collins of Willow Grove, Pa., Manasquan’s Kenny Van Wickle and Thompson rounding out the top five.

In a wild O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stock 25-lapper former champion Scott Riggleman of Manchester came from the rear of the pack twice to take down his first win of the year. Last year’s champion Joe Mongeau of Brick was the runner up with John Bowers of Pt. Pleasant, Jerry Koenig and Tom Rajkowski completing the top five.

Long Island racer Richie Davidowitz won the 25-lap Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars main event over opening night winner Kevin Nowak. Louie Keraitis, Malcolm Campbell and Vinny Troia were third through fifth.

Dalton Rovira won the 20-lapper for the Sunday Series Microstocks.

Racing returns this Saturday evening (May 14) with grandstand seating opening at 5:00 p.m. and qualifying at 5:45 p.m. Main event action, which will start around 7:00 p.m., will see the Sportsman cars compete in a 30-lapper and the Factory Stocks, Limited Late Models, 4 Cylinder Stocks, ATQMRA TQ Midgets and the Dirt Cars also in racing action.
