LAUREIGH WINS SPORTSMAN, MAJEK CASHES TO FACTORY WIN AT WALL SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor recovered from what has been a disappointing 2018 All American Auto Group Racing Series to win the 25-lap main event for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars Saturday night at Wall Stadium Speedway. Tim Majek of Scott Plains also had a night to remember as he won his career first 25-lap race for the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks and crashed just past the finish line.

Laureigh was an early leader of the Sportsman race but Eddie McCarthy of Pt. Pleasant and Toms River’s Louie Keraitis soon slipped into the top two spots. This duo then battled for the lead until lap 20 when McCarthy spun from the top spot in turn two. McCarthy went to the rear of the field for causing the caution while Keraitis also went to the back since officials felt he contributed to the spin.

That put Laureigh on top with Kyle Scisco and Jarret DiGiantomasso, both of Jackson, close behind. The final five laps saw this trio fight for first before Laureigh took down the win. DiGiantomasso grabbed second in the closing laps with Scisco finishing third. Point leader Kevin Davison of Howell and Carsten DiGiantomasso of Jackson completed the top five.

“We took home a wrecked car last week and came back to win tonight so this feels real good,” Laureigh said after the race. “I have to thank my mom and dad for all their hard work and of course my sponsors for their support. I know it is late in the season but I think we may have a couple more wins in this car.”

Majek led the majority of the regularly scheduled Factory Stock 25-lapper and fought off early challenges from John Bowers of Pt. Pleasant and Howell’s Richie Byrne. Point leader Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. took up the chase late in the race and shadowed Majek to the finish line. Majek’s big problem came about 50 feet past the finish line as lapped cars suddenly spun and he had no way to avoid them, badly damaging his winning car.

Montano, Shanon Mongeau of Manchester, Bayville’s Elliott Wohl and Byrne wrapped up the top five.

In a make-up factory stock 25-lapper from earlier this season Howell’s Johnny Carpenter raced to his second win of the year, taking the lead with an outside lane pass on lap ten. Wall’s Bob Haberstick, Montano, Majek and Howell’s Steve West were second through fifth.

Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City earned his second win of the campaign in the 25-lap race for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks, taking the lead on lap seven. AJ Jadacki and Brian Osborn, both of Howell, were second and third while Brian DeSarno and TJ Graves, both of Wall, were fourth and fifth.

Kyle Taraska won his first ever 25-lap main event for the visiting open cockpit Three Quarter Midgets and Joey Helbent of Pemberton won the big car Demolition Derby.

The All American Auto Group Racing Series continues this Saturday evening (Sept. 29) on “Fanfest Night,” sponsored by area NAPA dealers. The Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modifieds will return for a 40-lap main event, while the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks, Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks, Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Models, the Sportsman cars and the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars will all compete in a 25-lappers. Grandstands will open on hour early at 4:00 p.m., with the “On Track Party” starting at 4:30 p.m. Qualifying is set for 5:45 p.m. and feature race action set for 7:00 p.m.

Saturday night racing action continues through the October 6 “Champion’s Night” with schedule details at wallspeedwayracing.com. The Halloween themed “Spooky Spectacular” racing event is set for October 20 and the annual Turkey Derby is set for Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend.

TRUEX GRABS FIRST MODIFIED WIN,

MONTANO TOPS FACTORY STOCK THRILLER AT WALL SATURDAY
WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Tyler Truex of Mayetta won his first ever Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modified stock car 40-lap main event at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. The All American Auto Group Racing Series victory came in the 2017 Sportsman champion’s rookie Modified season.
Truex jumped to the lead early and was forced to fight off some of the division’s best drivers. Early on Steven Reed of Jackson and Holmdel’s Andrew Krause were on Truex’s rear bumper before Krause was forced to pit because of a faulty radiator cap. Truex then fought off Reed until just past halfway when defending champion and current point leader Jimmy Blewett of Howell slipped into second. Blewett then chased Truex the rest of the way but Truex seemed to have plenty of steam to the checker flag. Reed held on for third at the stripe with Shaun Carrig of Little Falls and Freehold’s Chas Okerson wrapping up the top five.
“I’m speechless,” Truex said after the impressive win. “The hard work the people behind the scenes do for me is unbelievable! It seemed to take forever but we finally won a Modified race here! So happy to take my family back to victory lane in the Modified division here at Wall Stadium! The history, family tradition, fans and support I have is unbelievable. No words can explain how thankful I am to each and every one of you! Thank you!”
Current championship point leader Mike Montano won the 50-lap race for the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks in what many called the most exciting race of the season. Montano jumped out to the lead early but then had to wrestle with Beachwood’s Elliott Wohl for the top spot. Wohl chased Montano until lap 15 and then took over the lead with an outside lane pass.
Montano never gave up and stayed right with Wohl as the pair sliced through lapped traffic. A lap 45 restart put Montano in the outside lane next to Wohl and the duo then raced side-by-side for the final five laps with Montano edging Wohl at the finish line by inches. Ron Booth of Eatontown crossed the finish line third, but when his car failed post-race inspection because of a problem with his front suspension Scott Riggleman of Manchester was promoted to the spot. John Bowers of Pt. Pleasant and Howell’s Steve west completed the top five.
Neil Rutt III of Toms River won his third straight 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks, racing through the pack to move out front near the halfway point. Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City, Howell’s Brian Osborn, Darianne McLaren of Edison and Hazlet’s Chris Silvestri completed the top five.
Shanon Mongeau of Manchester continues to be undefeated as he raced to victory in the 25-lap race for the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Models. Ken Matlach of New Hyde Park, N.Y. offered stiff competition before settling for second. Mike Tillett of Bayville, Carteret’s Harry Schaeffer, and Dom Casola of Holmdel wrapped up the top five.
The Limited Late Models were scheduled for two main events on the night, but when a tire order failed to arrive at the speedway, which meant that there would not be enough tires for the entire field for both races, the second feature was scrubbed.
The All American Auto Group Racing Series continues this Saturday evening (Sept. 8) on “Ladies Night.” The Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modifieds will race in a 40-lapper and the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars, the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars, the Factory Stocks and the 4 Cylinder Stocks will all compete in a 25-lappers.
