Riverhead, NY July 15th.
It was Monster Truck Saturday at Riverhead Raceway with a large crowd on hand at the historic quarter mile oval on a warm & pleasant evening. In the headlining 50-lap Late Model feature event Chris Turbush of Wading River rewarded his hard working team who burnt the midnight oil during the week to repair a heavily damaged car by making a last lap pass of Kyle Soper of Manorville to claim the win. Rookie driver Michael Rutkoski of Mattituck scored his first career Eagle Auto Mall Modified Crate victory when he topped their non stop 30-lap main event.
Qualifying found Late Model championship leader Kyke Soper laying down the fastest lap at 12.827 edging out defending champion Jeremy McDermott who turned in a lap of 12.842. The top 4 would redraw for the race with McDermott picking the pole while Roger Oxee drew the outside of the front row with Soper and Chris Turbush making up the second row. When the race got underway McDermott took advantage of his pole position to race to the early lead with Roger Oxee in tow. The class which had a rough and tumble race the week prior clicked off a smooth race Saturday. Oxee seeking his 65th career win would chase McDermott until a 40th lap double file restart that would not only see a change for second but also be the start of several position changes in the top 4. Chris Turbush would make his way under Oxee for second when the field started the 41st lap and he set sail for leader McDermott. The duo went toe to toe for the lead and as they raced hard Kyle Soper was able to make an inside pass of both leaders on lap 45 to claim the top spot with Turbush moving by McDermott for what would new be second.
The second he got to second Turbush went right to work on Soper as they ran nose to tail with less that five laps remaining. Turbush was working the inside lane as they raced off the corner with the race coming down to the white flag lap. After taking the one to go signal Turbush started his inside pass of Soper off turn two as the tandem ran door handle to door handle. Entering the third turn Turbush muscled his way under Soper and it would be a drag race off turn four to the checkers. Chris Tubush steering his East End Building Chevy would collect his 6th career Late Model win in a thriller. “What a team I have” boasted Turbush after the hard earned win, “we’ve had to rebuild this car twice since opening night and my guys and especially Bootsy never say die, they just keep digging”.
Kyle Soper crossed the line second but was moved back to last of the lead laps cars (6th) for after race contact with Turbush. That turn of events moved Kevin Metzger of Massapequa to second his best effort of 2017 in the Complete Well & Pump Chevy with Eric Zeh of Selden coming home third in the Angela’s House racer. Jeremy McDermott of Riverhead and Scott Kulesa of Georgetown, Ma. completed the top five.
After honing his racing skills in the competitive INEX Legend Race Car division Michael Rutkoski and his grandfather & car owner Buzz Chew decided the next step for Michael would be the Eagle Auto Mall Modified Crate class and Buzz was all in purchasing an all new Troyer Engineering built car for his grandson. Saturday that decision paid dividends as Michael Rutkoski led from green to checker for his first career win. Defending champion Dave Brigati broke his own track record he set on June 24th of this year when he toured the track at 12.615 with Dylan Slepian second quick with a time of 12.660. The top six from time would redraw with Rutkoski pulling the #1 pill with Dennis Krupski drawing the outside pole.
When the green flag waved Rutkoski broke our front with Dave Brigati coming from his third place starting berth under Krupski for second. For the remainder of the race Brigati the leading winner in the Crate Mods with 7 victories between 2016 and this season would stay right in the tire tracks of the freshman driver Rutkoski. For the race leader even though there were no caution flags during the race with a driver of Brigati’s caliber filling his mirror Michael might have thought the laps were clicking off slowly. As the race hit it’s second half Rutkoski in the Buzz Chew Chevrolet machine was hitting his marks and if Brigati was going to get by him it would have to be the the outside as the leader did a masterful job of protecting the inside lane.
At the finish it was the thrill of a first career win for Michael Rutkoski as his grandfather, long time track pace car sponsor Buzz Chew & their family looked on with pride. Dave Brigati of Calverton put the pressure on the young driver but had to be content with runner-up money in the Quest Machining & Fabricating Chevy while CJ Lehmann of Center Moriches was third in the IGA Food markets entry.
Tom Rogers Jr. scored his second consecutive Figure Eight win his third overall this season as well the 29th of his career tying him with Tom Kraft for 4th on the all time win list. Rookie talent Greg Harris broke to the early race lead at the throw of the green with Charles Macwhiinie in tow for the first lap before a quick yellow came out. On the restart Tom Rogers Jr, who started the race from 8th quickly made his way to second with Harris still leading the contest until a lap 3 yellow set up another double file restart. On that restart Tom Rogers Jr. in his Bays Bar & Grill coupe made his way to the race lead with Tom Ferrara racing his way to second. For the remainder of the race Ferrara would fill the rearview mirror of Rogers but was never able to mount a serious bid for the lead. When the race concluded championship leader Tom Rogers Jr. padded his point lead over Tom Ferrara of Patchogue who was second in the Extreme Auto Body Cadillac. Early leader Greg Harris of Riverhead was third in the SGS Stone Works machine of Ken Hyde Jr.
In the 20-ap Blunderbust feature event popular Tom Sullivan of Massapequa seemingly had won his first race of the season but post race inspection would find his car being too low and he was moved to last in the running order. That turn of events moved “The Wildchild” Tommy Walkowiak of Ridge into victory lane in his Blaze Fuel Oil Caprice for the 62nd time in his illustrious career. Walkowiak moved by Bill Wegmann Sr. on lap 2 for second with an inside pass entering the third turn which would prove to be the winning pass of the race. Championship leader Tom Pickerell of Huntington was second in the Sequel Group Chevy while Max Handley of Medford was third in the Liccardi Builders Caprice in just his third start of his career.
On the strength of a late race pass Jack Handley Jr. of Medford scored his first Super Pro Truck win of 2017 in their 20-lap feature. Sophomore driver Sean Glennon led the way for the first lap of the race before he was passed by Jimmy Rennick Jr. on lap 2. Glennon chased Rennick until the 4th circuit when he was passed by Lou Maestri who’d run second until lap 9 before he was overtaken by Owen Grennan. Meanwhile Handley who started the race 7th was making his way towards the front of the pack and on the 18th lap made his way by Grennan for second. Once he got to leader Rennick’s rear deck lid Handley, the 2016 Blunderbust champion wasted no time in making a bid for the race lead. With the laps winding down Jack ducked inside of Jimmy to take the lead for good in the Hollis Court Collision Chevy driving off in his Mike Albasini owned truck. Jimmy Rennick Jr. of Howard Beach had his best run of the year coming within laps of his first career win before settling for second in the Metropolitan Recycling Chevy. Early leader Sean Glennon of Northport took home third place money in the Rib’s Deli machine.
Brian Brown of Baiting Hollow topped the 30-lap Street Stock event for his first career win. Brandon Hubbard zipped out to the early race lead and the second generation driver would lead the first five laps before disaster struck as the field started the 6th lap. Heading into the first turn Hubbard’s throttle hung wide open and the driver known as “Hubcap” was along for the ride hitting the wall hard. Fortunately Brandon was okay but his Royalty Tattoo Chevy was totaled. When the race resumed Brian Brown was the new race leader with Kyle Curtis running second until the 11th lap when he was passed by veteran driver Rhett Fogg. The challenger was able to stay in the leaders tire tracks but that be as good as it would get as Brian Brown drove the Staria Automotive Chevy to victory lane. Rhett Fogg if Westhampton was second in his McBetts Racing Engines Chevy with Anthony Pizzo of Lake Ronkonkoma third in the Fleming’s Landscape Design Caprice.
Joe Warren Jr. of Ridge would win the 40-lap Gut & Go Enduro after starting 17th in the 47 car field. Bryan Kelly showed the way at the throw of the green leading the first 19 laps of the contest before Warren came calling with an inside pass of Kelly racing into the first turn. As per usual once in the lead Joe Warren Jr. put the hammer down leading the reminder of the race. As his customarily does when he wins Warren dedicated the win to ‘Lil Jason Trinca and his mom Keri. The performance of the race belonged to runner-up Brandon Esposito of Farmingville who started the race in the 42nd position in his Hilltop Bagel Café racer. Christian Conklin of Flanders was third.

They tried but the young guns where no match for Eric Beers

By DINO OBERTO

(LEHIGHTON, PA. 7-8-17) Eric Beers outdueled a pair of young guns to take the lead and then held off top contender Kris Graver for his second Modified win of the year.

Front row starter Ely and Strohl remained in that order when the 35-lap event got going while eighth starting Beers joined them after a lap two restart.

Then began an intensely contested battle. Ely led the pack while Strohl and Beers went two-wide while also going after the leader.

On lap 23 Strohl was running on the bottom and saw a chance to get past Ely. As he dived underneath there was slight contact that caused Ely to slide a bit to the right and Strohl as well had to gather himself from spinning.

Beers would capitalize from that as he was high enough to throttle past them and take over the lead.

Not surprising point leader Graver was coming on by this point and got around Strohl and Ely with eight laps to go. Beers, however was in good shape to the finish and would notch his 54th career Mahoning win.

“That was some good racing out there tonight,” said Beers. “The three of us where under a blanket for at least 20 laps. I was trying to get on the outside of Jack (Ely) and Kyle (Strohl) at the same time was shooting to the inside of him and they made some contact and I was able to then get a good run to finally take the lead.”
The always improving Joey Jarowicz found a burst of speed over the final laps and took home a career best third. Ely and Strohl held on to complete the top five.

The racing program was almost cut short when a passing rain shower during warm-ups put a question mark on the rest of the evening. After a pole by the drivers it was decided to make a go of it although the track was a bit tricky to drive.

“It was pretty slick. The low groove had a little bit of grip and there was not a whole lot on the top but the bottom line is we’re racing on a Saturday night,” said Beers.

“I want to say a happy birthday to our promoter Floyd Santee. Hats off to him for sticking with the show and getting it all in tonight. Everyone stuck together and there may not have been a whole lot of gripe due to all the rain in the past two days but man did we put on a good show.”

Mike Sweeney not only raced to his division leading fifth Late Model victory of the season but it was also  a personal milestone as he notched his 50 career win with that class.

The feature was a cone race and under a process of cautions Sweeney was able to move to second spot by lap eight at which point he was behind Jeremy Miller.

Two laps later Sweeney was charging past Miller for the lead and once in front it was a smooth and steady ride to the checkers. It was also his second win in a row, following a victory the previous week at Evergreen Raceway.

Frankie Althouse, Miller, Lorin Arthofer and Broc Brown rounded out the front five.

“The cautions came out at the right times and we were able to choose the right lane for the restarts. We won last week at Evergreen and then to come back here and park in Victory Lane that’s what we work so hard for,” said Sweeney, who is the leading asphalt Late Model winner throughout the Northeast in 2017 with six wins to date.

Stacey Brown passed Jillian Long for the lead on lap four and would go the rest of the way from the top spot in capturing his first Street Stock win of the season.

Brown did a fine job of holding back his opposition as he showed little signs of wavering. Jon Moser was able to claw his way to second spot over the final half dozen laps but Brown had him covered.

In the Dirt Mods Mike Stofflet raced to a track record eighth consecutive feature win and in dominating fashion as he was the only car on the lead lap by race’s end.

Cody Kohler should think about more trips home from North Carolina where he attends school. For a fourth time in five starts Kohler scored a Pro 4 victory. His other finish was a scant second.

The Hobby Stock feature was quite the barnburner as Tiffany Wambold made a bold inside pass on Colton Perry in the final corner of the final lap for her second win of the year. After nine races Wambold becomes the first driver to repeat in the class.

TOM ROGERS JR. STEERS FAMILY CAR TO VICTORY LANE IN BALDWIN, EVANS & JARZOMBEK 77 AT RIVERHEAD RACEWAY SATURDAY NIGHT

Riverhead, NY July 8th.

With the Joe Ambrose owned NASCAR Modified Tom Rogers Jr. of Riverhead normally drives at Riverhead Raceway on the sidelines Tom strapped into his family owned car for the second week in a row Saturday night promptly steering the car to victory in the annual Baldwin Evans & Jarzombek 77. The victory was the 45th of Tom’s career as he closes in on Jim Malone Sr. (50) for second on the all time win list at the track.

Prior to the feature racing Ed Brunnhoelzl Jr. of Levittown a 22 time NASCAR Modified winner at Riverhead along with former three time Figure Eight champion Tom Kraft of Mastic Beach who won 29 times in his driving career and Danny McNamara of Water Mill the leading all time INEX Legend Race Car winner were all inducted onto the Cromarty Wall of Champions. Track owners Eddie & Connie Partridge and Tom Gatz debuted a new Cromarty Wall of Champions housed at the turn three entrance gate for all to enjoy.

15-year old Dillon Steuer of Bohemia set the standard in qualifying with a lap of 11.905 with defending champion Shawn Solomito of enter Moriches second at 11.950. In the redraw among the top six  Chris Young would pick the pole while Steuer the outside pole. At the throw of the green to start the 77 it would be Young motoring out front with Steuer tucking into second and Shawn Solomito who started fourth settling into third. Solomito on lap 4 made his way by Steuer for second and just three laps later was able to work his way by Young for the lead on lap 7. Solomito once to the lead starting to get away from Steuer who himself completed a pass of Young for second on lap 8. Steuer would soon be entrenched in a fight for second a third of the way through the race with Tom Rogers Jr who started the contest in 6th.

After testing Steuer for several laps Rogers was able to slip by the teenage sensation on lap 34. Rogers then quickly turned his attention on catching race leader Solomito who was seeking his third win of 2017. Once he got to the back bumper of race leader Solomito little time was wasted by Rogers making a bid for the top spot as he raced his way under Shawn entering the third turn on lap 48. Just laps later Solomito’s race would end with a spin off turn two with his team pointing to a broken wheel as the culprit. A highly motivated Eddie Brunnhoelzl III made his way to second on lap 53 and for a spell seemed poised to make a run at Rogers for the win. However as the race hit it’s final stage Brunnhoelzl would actually try to fend off John Fortin Sr. for second allowing Rogers to pull away. Fortin was able to get by Brunnhoelzl for second with five laps remaining in the race.

After taking the checker flags and being presented the prestigious Baldwin, Evans & Jarzombek trophy by Tom Baldwin III the race winner reflected on the past two weeks of the season, “we wish Joe (Ambrose) was here with us for this and hopefully we’ll do some racing again later this year. I wasn’t happy with our family car last week so during the week I threw a bunch of shock and spring changes at it”. Back driving in a car he and his family fund Tom admitted racing life is different for he and his team, “we’re going race by race with the purse money we earn and some great sponsors like SGS Stone Works & Stakey’s Pumpkin Farm hopefully we can finish out the year strong”.

John Fortin Sr. of Holtsville the 2016 winner of the 77 was runner-up in his John’s Tree Removal Chevy while Eddie Brunnhoelzl III of Levittown crossed the line a solid third in the JTEC Electrical Contractors Chevy with many family members and friends watching on this special night. Brendon Bock of Franklin Square and Dave Brigati of Calverton completed the top five.

The 25-lap Late Model feature event was a caution marred affair with Eric Zeh of Selden rising above all that went on behind him to score his second win of 2017 in the Angela’s House Chevy. Ray Minieri paced Shawn Patrick when the race got underway but the first of many yellows waved on lap 2 setting up a double file restart. When the race resumed Minieri stayed out front with Eric Zeh sliding under Shawn Patrick for second as the field started the third circuit. One lap later Zeh moved his car to the outside to work his way by Minieri for the race lead. Minieri ran second until lap 6 when he was overtaken by Ken Matlach who in turn two laps later was passed for the position by defending champion Jeremy McDermott on lap 8. While McDermott was able to stay in Zeh’s tire tracks he’d never get close enough to make a bid for the lead allowing Eriz Zeh to take down the win. Jeremy McDermott of Riverhead was runner-up in the JDP Mechanical entry while championship leader Kyle Soper of Manorville was third in the Eastport Feeds Pontiac.

Jim Laird of Riverhead scored his first Blunderbust win of the season when he topped their 20-lap main event in his My Country 96.1 FM Caprice. Popular Tom Sullivan broke out to the early race lead with Tommy Walkowiak tucking into second. Walkowiak, the all time leading winner in the class with 61 wins was able to make his way by Sullivan for the lead on lap 8 with an inside pass exiting the fourth turn moving Sullivan to second. The car on the march belonged to Jim Laird who made his way from a 6th starting position to third and with Walkowiak & Sullivan dicing for the lead on lap 11 Laird made a bold move to pass the top two cars in one clean sweeping move. Walkowiak ran second until lap 15 when he was passed by Tom Pickerell to the inside in turn two. The only hope Pickerell would have at making a run at Laird would be for a late race yellow to bunch up the field and low and behold that yellow waved after the 16th lap was completed. With 20-time winner Pickerell lined-up to his right Laird would need to have the restart of his young career and indeed he did as he kept the lead fending off the multi-time track champion. Tom Pickerell of Huntington was runner-up in the Makely Industries Chevy while Eric Zeh of Selden was third in the Westhampton Auto Salvage Cadillac.

Brendon Bock of Franklin Square is on fire winning his third straight INEX Legend Race Car 20-lap main event. Pole sitter Ed Cheslak leaped out front at the throw of the green with Eric Hersey giving chase. Lap 4 saw Hersey dive under Cheslak for the lead entering the first turn moving the early leader back to second. tested tough veteran Kevin Nowak who started the raced from 7th flexed his muscles prior to the halfway point of the tilt racing by Cheslak for second on lap 7. However Brendon Bock is on a tear and after starting 9th on the gird Bock as the field received the halfway signal moved to second to the outside of Nowak. With the momentum he built up to pass Nowak he was able tot sustain that forward motion as he race by Hersey for the race lead to the outside on lap 11. Once out front Bock in the Jim Sylvester owned Oval Speed machine never looked back earning his 7th career win in the class. Kevin Nowak of Medford in his self funded racer was runner-up while championship leader John Beatty Jr. of Merrick crossed the line third in the Giella Electric mount.

Could be the Long Island Vintage Auto Racing Series group might put a bounty on former five time NASCAR Modified champion Don Howe of Water Mill who is now three for three on the season with LIVARS. Mark Miller did a great job leading the way in his Tony Hirschmann tribute car before yielding to Don Howe just prior to the halfway mark of the 20-lap race. Once out front Howe steering the Carl Zeh Auto repair Cavalier stayed out front for the win. Jim Kelly of East Moriches was third in the East End RV Pontiac while Frank Saladino of Huntington was third in his Richie Evans Rusty Nail Special tribute coupe.

Gene Burbol of Brookhaven crossed the line first in the 40-lap Truck Enduro but in post race tech inspection would lose that win for an unapproved exhaust. It was Gene’s contention his exhaust pipe broke during the race in which he took the lead on lap 13. However the track officials deemed the rule is a rule and Burbol was stripped of the victory and moved to last place. Championship leader Don Nelson Jr. of Rocky Point who finished second was declared the race winner in his Abner Tree Experts Chevy. Hank Hallock of Riverhead was second in the Westhampton Auto Salvage Chevy while Bobby Pease of Medford was third in his Fit Spot Gym entry.
