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.
The All American Auto Group Racing Series continues this Saturday evening (July 21) with another “Pack the Track Night” that features a discounted $10 adult grandstand admission. A Demolition Derby will be the finale of the program which also features double main events for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars, the Factory Stocks and the 4 Cylinder Stocks.

TRI-TRACK OPEN MODIFIED SERIES SET FOR SBM 125 AT WEBBER’S STAR SPEEDWAY ON JULY 28

Seekonk, Mass. (July 16, 2018): Since its inception only two drivers have ever found victory in the traditional SBM event at Star Speedway in Epping, NH. On Saturday, July 28, over 30 other drivers will look to add their name to this very exclusive list. SBM VII will feature– 125 Laps Tri-Track Open Modified Series and will also include Star Speedway regular divisions including Late Models, Strictly Stocks, Six Shooters and Roadrunners.

To date, only Matt Hirschman (4 wins) and Jon McKennedy can boast wins in this prestigious Modified event in the Granite State. But, while running strong, Hirschman of Northampton, PA, the defending series champion, has been shut-out of victory lane in TTOMS competition so far in 2018. He is undoubtedly the favorite going into the event on July 28.

With an expected roster of 30-plus cars an ‘upset’ could also be in the making. Ron Silk of Norwalk, CT, the most recent winner with the TTOMS, looks to go back-to-back. Ryan Preece of Berlin, CT, is always a threat to win and he has posted a number of strong finishes in the SBM races in the past. Les Hinckley of Windsor Locks, CT, has consistently been among the podium finishers at Star Speedway and is definitely due for a win.

Josh Cantera of Saco, ME, has also found himself on the podium a number of times in the SBM events. A former Star Speedway Modified Champion, Cantara could use ‘home track’ advantage to snag top honors.  Fresh off a win at Lee USA Speedway, young gun Sammy Rameau of Westminster, MA, is hungry for a lucrative win with the Tri-Track Series. Cagey veteran Russ Hersey of Swanzey, NH, has been strong this season and looks to turn consistency into a payday.

Other notables who have filed entries include Tommy Barrett, Rowan Pennink, Woody Pitkat, Anthony Nocella and Richard Savary. Andy Seuss will come home to NH in search of an SBM victory.

And, while the future looks bright for a host of drivers, fans can look forward to enhanced lighting at Star Speedway as well with the installation of LED lights on the track’s backstretch. Others have also been installed in the pit area. This is only one of several improvements that the Webbers have made over the last year that also includes expanded pavement in the pit area with more on the horizon.

Racing will get underway on Saturday, July 28 with heat races for weekly divisions at 4:30pm followed by heat race action for the Tri-Track Mods. Features for all divisions will roll-off at approximately 6:00pm and will culminate with the running of 125 laps of ground-pounding Modified action.

Grandstand admission is $30 for adults, $25 for Seniors and Juniors. Kids under 10 are admitted free. Early bird pit passes (that includes early practice) are $55. Pit gates officially open at 11:30am with a cost of $45. Practice of the TTOMS is scheduled for 1:00pm. More information can be found at StarSpeedwayNH.com.

The Tri-Track Open Modified Series is proud to be a part of the Star Speedway family.
