HEARNE HURTLES TO MODIFIED RACE WIN AT WALL SATURDAY

WALL, N.J. ~ On the same speedway on which his father Gil Hearne won a record setting 101 times, New Egypt speedster Jason Hearne fought off some of the best drivers in the business to win the 40-lap “Ladies’ Night” feature race at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. The All American Auto Group Modified win was Hearne’s career fourth and his first in just over three years.

Hearne rocketed his famous family trademark No. 12 to the front at the outset but was never alone. Andrew Krause of Holmdel was the first to take a shot at the leader before Howell’s Kevin Davison advanced to second and went after the leader starting on lap 12. Krause later advanced to second and went after Hearne again while former champion and current point leader Steven Reed of Jackson was always in the mix in this high speed chase. This battle for the win became even more intense thanks to several restarts due to mostly minor incidents.

At the finish Hearne’s bright orange racer parked in the winner’s circle while Krause, Reed, Jason’s Jason Treat and Derek Hopkinson of Toms River wrapped up the top five.

“It feels great to win again,” Hearne said after the event. “Did I think I was going to win again? The way my luck has been going I didn’t think I was going to finish a race again! I have to thank Jim Wolf. He has been with me in this for 20 years. Also want to thank Bob from Echo Hills Farm. He is here every race.”

Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson raced to victory in the companion 25-lapper for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars taking the lead with just three laps remaining. DiGiantomasso took command when early leader Tommy Martino of Farmingdale got out of shape exiting turn two involving several racers including DiGiantomasso’s brother Carsten.

Wrapping up the top five at the finish were Neil Rutt III of Edison, Jackson’s Shanon Mongeau, Roland DeMartino of Beachwood and Lanoka Harbor’s Jonathan Laureigh.

After trying all season for a victory Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim grabbed two Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stock main event wins Saturday night. In the first race, rain postponed from earlier in the season, Morales chased Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City to the line. When Loesch’s car failed the post race inspection Morales earned the win over Rutt, Ricky Williams, Brick’s Randy Hart and Chuck McDonald of Groton, Ct.

Morales enjoyed the win in the second race as Rutt, Loesch, Ryan Maher of Neptune City, and McDonald wrapped up the top five.

Point leader Shanon Mongeau of Jackson won his sixth Mike Performance Center Limited Late Model 25-lap race of the season while Krause, Hazlet’s Chris Silvestri, Andy Gamble and Jim Moorman were second through fifth.

BLEWETT TAKES $5,000 SUMMER SCORCHER PRIZE AT WALL

WALL, N.J. ~ In front of a large grandstand crowd that included over 50 of the speedway’s past driving champions Jimmy Blewett of Howell won the “Summer Scorcher 125” for All American Auto Group Modified stock cars at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. The victory earned Blewett $5,000 and a watch from sponsor Mertens Jewelers.

Tyler Truex of Mayetta was the first leader of the contest as Holmdel’s Andrew Krause quickly moved in to challenge. Krause was finally able to charge into the top spot on a lap 26 restart. Blewett then wrestled Truex for second before taking over the spot on lap 42. Another caution slowed the race a few laps later and Krause became one of the first to duck into the pit area for a pair of new tires.

Blewett stayed on the track, took command on the restart and led through the middle stages of the race before changing two tires near lap 70. Krause then had climbed back through the field before taking the lead near lap 80. Blewett then had his turn to climb through the pack and landed in second spot just past lap 90. Blewett then shadowed Krause for several laps before racing into the lead in the outside lane on lap 97.

From that point on Blewett held his ground as Krause fought back while running second. The top two were in tight formation at the finish with Blewett taking the checker flag. Ricky Collins of Willow Grove, Pa. Was impressive in finishing third, while Danny Bohn of Mooresville, N.C. and Kenny Van Wickle of Manasquan completed the top five.

“Great to be in Victory Lane tonight at Wall Stadium,” Blewett said after the win. “Thanks to Rob Ormsbee, Tom Martino, Rob Fuller, Woody’s, my crew, my spotter Tim Riggleman, Wall Stadium management and the fans who packed the place tonight.”

Beachwood’s Elliott Wohl caught early leader Scott Riggleman of Manchester in the first half of the race and challenged him for the top spot before taking the lead near the halfway point. Wohl then dedicated his win to his mother Ruth who was celebrating a birthday. Riggleman, the returning Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y., Wall’s Bryan O’Shea and Jackson’s Shanon Mongeau completed the top 5 in the 25-lap race.

Point leader Neil Rutt III of Edison continued his winning ways in the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder stocks topping the 25-lapper after a side-by-side battle with runner-up Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim that lasted for the final five laps. Ryan Maher of Neptune City, Edison’s Darianne McLaren and Brick’s Randy Hart were third through fifth.

Mike Alcaro of West Milford won the 25-lap race for the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars. Invader Mason Magee crossed the finish line second but failed the post race inspection. Howell’s Rob Silver, Sean Verwys, Joe McGrath of Brick and Joe Przybylinski were second through fifth.

Auto racing continues at Wall Stadium Speedway this Saturday (August 3) night. Action is slated for the Modifieds, Sportsman, Limited Late Models and 4 Cylinder Stocks. Grandstand gates open at 5:00 p.m., qualifying begins at 5:45 p.m. and features start at 7:00 p.m.
