KRAUSE TAKES EMOTIONAL FATHER’S DAY WALL VICTORY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Andrew Krause of Holmdel nailed down an emotional stock car victory at Wall Stadium Speedway on Saturday night of Father’s Day weekend in the All American Auto Group Racing Series. After his Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modified 40-lap win, Krause dedicated the victory to the memory of his father, Cliff Krause. The senior Krause, who passed away in January, promoted the speedway for several years. His family still promotes the track today.
Jackson’s Steven Reed took the lead at the drop of the green flag but Krause and a host of others were charging to the front. Krause was the first to get to Reed and made an outside lane pass on lap seven. Soon Eric Mauriello and Jimmy Blewett, both of Howell, joined Krause and Reed in the top four.
As the race neared the halfway mark Reed and Blewett battled fiercely for the runner-up spot before the caution waved when Blewett stopped with a flat tire. Once action resumed Krause raced home for the emotional victory and stopped Blewett’s win streak at five victories. Reed, Mauriello, Blewett and Ricky Collins of Willow Grove, Pa. completed the top five.
“This is a very emotional weekend for my family so this win really means a lot,” Krause said after the victory. “My father has done so much for me and my family. He has done so much for this great place.”
Eric Lane of Howell raced to his second victory of the year in the companion 25-lapper for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars. Lane took the lead near the halfway mark after early leaders Kevin Davison of Howell and Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson tangled in turn four. Lane then survived his own restart trouble before taking the win. Farmingdlae’s John McCormick, Davison, Brick’s Robert Sutphin and Eddie McCarthey of Pt. Pleasant wrapped up the top five.
Point race leader Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. took the win in the 25-lapper for the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks. Defending champ Scott Riggleman of Manchester was second, with Elliot Wohl of Bayville and Bob Haberstick and Bryan O’Shea, both of Wall, completing the top five.
Sal Liguori of Hazlet won his second straight Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stock main event over defending series champ Brian OsBorn of Howell. Wall’s TJ Graves, Neil Rutt and Mike Lavery were third through fifth.
Mike Alcaro of West Milford was tops in the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars 25-lapper with Nick Van Wickle of Edgewater Park and Kyle Dealaman completing the top three. Shannon Mongeau of Manchester won the 25-lap Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Model feature over Brick’s Joe Mongeau and Harry Schaeffer of Carteret.
The All American Auto Group Racing Series continues this Saturday evening (June 23) with the Modifieds in a 40-lapper, the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars in twin 25-lappers, the Factory Stocks in triple 25-lappers and the 4 Cylinder Stocks in a 25-lapper during Ladies’ Night activities.

MOMS TO BE HONORED WITH CONE RACES AT WALL SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Mothers will be in the spotlight at Wall Stadium Speedway this Saturday (May 12) evening as moms who enter the grandstand area will be rewarded with a discount admission price of just $15 and a free flowering plant courtesy of John Gasko and Son Farm and Greenhouses in Monroe while supplies. All of the fans who attend the evening’s events will be rewarded with high-speed All American Auto Group Racing Series action from four racing divisions in “cone races” on the high-banked third mile paved oval.
Grandstand seating will open this Saturday at 5:00 p.m., qualifying is set for 5:45 p.m. and main event racing will follow at 7:00 p.m.
The Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria Modified 40-lap “cone race” main event on the night is important in the race for the season-long driving title. Three-time winner Jimmy Blewett of Howell has looked strong in early season action as has two-time champ Steven Reed of Jackson, Eric Mauriello of Howell and Andrew Krause of Holmdel.
Also on the card will be 25-lap “cone races” for the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Models, the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars and the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks. The restored cars of the Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club will also be on hand.
In a “Cone Race” a traffic cone is placed on the backstretch at the one-to-go sign for a restart. Any driver can choose to go inside the cone or outside the cone. If the first four drivers choose the inside, for example, the fifth place driver can choose the outside and move up to the front row. Does a driver take the preferred inside groove and restart further back on the inside, or does he or she choose the shorter line of cars on the outside and hope he or she can make it stick? That’s the issue each driver will face on each restart.
Pit gates will open at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday; with practice starting at 3:00 p.m. Grandstands will open at 5:00 p.m., qualifying is then set for 5:45 p.m. with main events for all divisions to follow.
