MAURIELLO TOPS MODS, MAJEK, O’SHEA AND RAJKOWSKI ARE WALL FACTORY STOCK WINNERS

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Eric Mauriello raced to his third win of the season in the 40-lap main event for the All American Auto Group Modified stock cars at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. The Brick resident’s victory came in front of a large crowd on the first Saturday night of the summer season at the Jersey Shore.

Kenny Matlach of New Hyde Park, N.Y. was the first leader of the contest but Tyler Truex of Little Egg Harbor soon advanced to second to challenge. Mauriello was on the charge from deep in the pack and arrived in third spot soon after. The top runners raced in tight formation until lap eight when several made contact and Matlach spun as a result. Mauriello then used the outside lane, as he had to advance through the pack, to race into the lead and was never headed the rest of the way.

Holmdel’s Andrew Krause advanced to second by lap 12 and then raced home for second with Roger Coss of Lafayette, Toms River’s Derek Hopkinson and recent Garden State Classic winner Steven Reed of Jackson wrapping up the top five.

“Steve and the crew have this No. 31 running great,” Mauriello said after stretching his point lead. “Inside or outside the car is fast and handles well. It really works good in the outside lane.”

The O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks were featured in three 25-lap main events. Tim Majek of Scotch Plains grabbed his second career win in the first race after early leader John Bowers of Pt. Pleasant spun after the duo made contact in the heat of battle on lap 18. Bryan O’Shea of Neptune City, Manchester’s Scott Riggleman, Gerry Koenig of Merrick, N.Y. and Howell’s Nick Kilmer wrapped up the top five.

The second main event saw O’Shea take the after jumping into the top spot early. Koenig, Tom Rajkowski of Fords, Elliott Wohl of Beachwood and Brick’s Joe Mongeau completed the top five.

Rajkowski then took over the lead of the third main event on lap seven and raced on to his first ever main event win. Koenig, Wohl, early leader Joey Helberg of Union and Mongeau wrapped up the top five.

Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson took an emotional victory, dedicating the win to a friend who recently passed away, in the Center State Engineering Sportsman 25-lapper. Michael Carr of Pt. Pleasant was second with Howell’s Eric Lane, Tommy Martino of Farmingdale and Michael Rising of Little Egg Harbor finishing third through fifth.

Neil Rutt III of Edison to the lead early and raced to a convincing win in the 25-lap race for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks, his third of the season. Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City, Darianne McLaren of Edison, Sal Liguori of Hazlet and Ryan Maher of Neptune were second through fifth.

Defending Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Model champion Shanon Mongeau of Jackson won his fifth 25-lapper of the second over Jerick Johnson of North Carolina, Hazlet’s Chris Silvestri, Jim Moorman of Brooklawn and Jackson’s Greg Gastelu.

REED WINS THIRD GARDEN STATE CLASSIC AT WALL SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Veteran All American Auto Group Modified stock car driver Steven Reed survived most of the carnage and raced on to victory in the Garden State Classic auto race at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. It was the Jackson speedster’s third victory in the 125 lap grind.

Tyler Truex of Little Egg Harbor was the early leader of this 59th edition of the race as Reed lurked in the top pack for most of the early going. Reed pitted earlier than most for new tires and he felt that may have been the winning move. When Truex and a host of others headed to the pit area for a tire change around lap 80 Reed took over the top spot.

The race was a tough one for most competitors as the 26 car field was forced to endure several caution flags for accidents, an oil down which stopped the race when the track crew was faced with a massive clean-up and a hard hit by Willingboro’s Trevor Alspach in the fourth turn guardrail. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

For the final laps of the race Reed fought off the attacks of Derek Hopkinson of Toms River who battled side-by-side with Reed for many of the closing laps before finishing second. Holmdel’s Andrew Krause was in contention most of the way before finishing third while Truex finished fourth. Howell’s Eric Mauriello wrestled through many problems before finishing fifth.

“The pit strategy that we used tonight won the race for us,” Reed said in the winner’s circle. “This is our third win in the race. We never pitted in the first one and short pitted in these last two wins.

“Taking this win on Father’s Day weekend is pretty big for me. My father has been with me ever since I started racing so this win is for him.”

Like the Modifieds, the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks also saw plenty of action in their 25-lapper before Neptune City’s Brian O’Shea raced to his second straight victory. Union’s Joey Helberg was second, with Scott Riggleman of Manchester, Nick Kilmer of Howell and Beachwood’s Elliott Wohl wrapping up the top five.

Neil Rutt III of Edison raced through the pack and took the win in the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks. Brian DeSarno of Wall, Farmingdale’s Doug Ashford, Neptune City’s Jeffrey Loesch and Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim were second through fifth.

Rob Silver of Howell took the win in the 25-lap Green Flag Driving Experience race after the No. 88 of Sean Verwys, which crossed the finish line first, failed a post-race inspection. Peter Bruno of Little Silver, Brick’s Joe McGrath, Kyle Dealaman of Warren and Jim Downey of Cliffwood Beach wrapped up the top five.

Auto racing continues at Wall Stadium Speedway this Saturday (June 22) night. The Modified cars will battle in a 40-lapper and the Factory Stocks are set for three 25-lap main events. The Center State Engineering Sportsman cars, the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Models and the 4 Cylinder Stocks are all set for 25-lap feature races. Grandstand gates open at 5:00 p.m., qualifying begins at 5:45 p.m. and features start at 7:00 p.m.
