RICKY COLLINS TAKES FIRST WALL MODIFIED WIN SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Young stock car driver Ricky Collins raced to his first career All American Auto Group Modified stock car win at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. The Willow Grove, Pa. speedster’s win came in front of a large NAPA Night crowd. In addition to posted purse money, Collins, all race winners and random finishers earn additional bonuses from NAPA.

Jonathan Mandato of Jackson was the event’s first leader as Collins soon began to apply the pressure. Collins then used a lap 12 restart to power into the lead on the outside lane. Collins then fought through several caution flags as he held off Mandato’s charges while several other contenders lurked in a tight lead pack.

After the final caution waved on lap 36 Collins was able to power his way to the finish line for the win. Mandato was second while Brick’s Eric Mauriello came from deep in the field for third. Jason Hearne of New Egypt and Shaun Carrig of Little Falls completed the top five. Point leader Steven Reed of Jackson salvaged an eighth place finish after suffering through on track trouble while second place point man Andrew Krause of Holmdel left the race with mechanical trouble to earn 13th.

“I owe all this to my father and my family,” Collins said in the winner’s circle. “Doesn’t even feel real! Love everyone that gives me a hand on this thing. Driving is easy with the guys I have behind me!”

Bryan O’Shea of Neptune City won his fourth 25-lapper in the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stock division after early leader Billy Both of Rahway crashed in the closing laps. Tim Majek of Scotch Plains and Kevin Flores of Brick were second and third. Point leader Elliot Wohl of Beachwood was fourth and Manchester’s Scott Riggleman wrapped up the top five.

Shanon Mongeau of Jackson grabbed the win in the 25-lapper for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars after taking the lead just before halfway. Early Leader Michael Rising of Little Egg Harbor, Howell’s Eric Lane, Carsten DiGiantomasso of Jackson and Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor were second through fifth. Point leader Kyle Scisco of Jackson was sixth.

Mongeau then returned to make it a two for two night by winning the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Model 25-lapper over point leader Chris Silvestri of Hazlet. Michelle Moorman, Mike Tillett and Greg Gastelu wrapped up the top five.

Mason Magee of Northwest, Maryland grabbed his second win of the year in the 25-lap race for the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars holding of the advances of Pennsylvania’s Sean Verwys until lapped cars ruined his chances in the final few laps. Brick’s Joe McGrath, Howell’s Rob Silver, Peter Bruno of Little Silver and Verwys were second through fifth.

Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City topped the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks, fighting off the challenges of Brick’s Ronnie Mullen, Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim, point leader Neil Rutt III of Edison and Nicole Razzano of Cookstown.

MONGEAU AND KOENIG TOP WALL FACTORY STOCKS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Shanon Mongeau of Jackson and Jerry Koenig of Baldwin, N.Y. were big winners on “Pack the Track Night” at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night topping a pair of 25-lap main events for the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks. It was the first win of the campaign for each driver.

Once things settled down in the first race Tom Rajkowski of Fords was the early leader as Mongeau fought his way to the front of the pack. Mongeau arrived in second spot just past halfway and then shadowed Rajkowski until lap 21 when he dove to the inside lane in turn two to slip into the lead. Mongeau then powered on to the win while Rajkowski, Scott Riggleman of Manchester, point leader Elliot Wohl of Beachwood and defending champion Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y. completed the top five.

Koenig took full advantage of an up front starting spot to lead the 20-car field to the green flag in the second Factory Stock 25-lapper. He then fought off a host of contenders including former champ Joe Mongeau of Brick, Union’s Joey Helberg and eventual runner-up Shanon Mongeau. Helberg, Scott Riggleman and Wohl were third through fifth.

Neil Rutt III of Edison took the lead early in the 25-lap race for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars while Howell’s Eric Lane soon advanced to second spot. After Lane sized up his foe from second, this duo offered up a battle royal during the final laps. With bumpers and nerf bars banding and sparks flying this duo swapped the lead a couple of times before Lane came home with the win. Tommy Martino of Farmingdale, Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor and Shanon Mongeau completed the top five.

After a pre-race hot lap crash took out two of the entered cars, Shanon Mongeau came back to win the 20-lapper for the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Models over Chris Silvestri of Hazlet. Joey Bailey won the 25-lapper for the touring Three Quarter Midgets and Chris Klotz topped the Demolition Derby.
