TRUEX TOPS WALL MODIFIEDS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Tyler Truex turned a disappointing season into a rewarding one Saturday night by winning the 40-lap main event for the All American Auto Group Modified stocks cars at Wall Stadium Speedway. The victory was the first of the campaign for the Mayetta resident.

Eddie McCarthy of Pt. Pleasant was impressive early in this race as he led Derek Hopkinson of Toms River through the first ten laps. The duo then touched at this point with McCarthy spinning from the lead. Hopkinson was then the leader of the test but Truex had now completed his run from sixth to second and applied the pressure. On the 16th lap Truex powered to the outside lane to take the lead.

The final half of the event saw Truex fight off the advances of Holmdel’s Andrew Krause and Hopkinson who eventually finished second and third. The returning Ron Frees of Lanoka Harbor and Howell’s Kevin Davison were fourth and fifth.

“This win is for my father,” Truex said in the winner’s circle. “He is fighting health issues and I am so glad he is here tonight. He is the reason that I am a Modified driver today. Andrew Krause may have had the better car late in the race but he drove me clean all the way.”

The Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks battled in twin 25-lap main events with Neptune City’s Jeffrey Loesch winning the first after taking the lead on lap eight. Howell’s Brian Osborn, Ryan Maher of Neptune, Edison’s Neil Rutt III and Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim completed the top five. Championship point leader Rutt returned to win the nightcap over a top five of Morales, Maher, Loesch and Ian Ashford of Farmingdale.

Michael Rising of Little Egg harbor fought off the advances of Howell’s Eric Lane for most of the first half of the 25-lapper for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars before the duo touched and Rising went spinning from the lead. Lane then took command and raced on to the win over Farmingdale’s Tommy Martino. Rutt, Jackson’s Jarret DiGiantomasso and the recovering Rising wrapped up the top five.

Sean Verwys of East Stroudsburg, Pa. got his first win in the 25-lapper for the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars fighting off Mason Magee most of the way. Invader Ron Milroy, Peter Bruno of Little silver and Joe McGrath of Brick were third through fifth.

ANDRETTA, KILMER AND MARTINO ARE FIRST TIME WALL WINNERS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Chris Andretta of Neptune, Nick Kilmer of Howell and Farmingdale’s Tommy Martino were all first time winners in their divisions during Labor Day weekend Saturday night stock car competition at Wall Stadium Speedway. Limited Late Model winner and point leader Chris Silvestri of Hazlet enjoyed his second career victory.

Kenny Van Wickle of Manasquan was the first leader of the All American Auto Group Modified 40-lap race as a mid-pack battle for position raged during the first ten laps. Andretta was in third behind Jackson’s Jason Treat by lap ten before Treat suffered big trouble with the front stretch guardrail just before halfway. Point leader Steven Reed was involved in the scramble but continued on. Brick’s Dom Fattaruso and Boonton’s Tom Catanzaro were also involved in the tangle.

Van Wickle and Andretta then battled side-by-side for the lead on the restart before Andretta took command near halfway. Holmdel’s Andrew Krause saw his run to the front spoiled by a tire rub and Brick’s Eric Mauriello arrived in second before mechanical woes knocked him from the race.

Andretta then raced on to the landmark win over Van Wickle, Derek Hopkinson of Toms River, Reed and Eddie McCarthy of Brick.

“To return to this track and to win a Modified race is like a dream come true,” Andretta, who won nine times here in the old Pro Stock division between 2003 and 2006, said. ‘To win here in a Modified No. 25 is great! I thank my father and Pete and Elda’s Bar/Carmen’s Pizzeria for all of it.”

After finishing second to Scott Riggleman of Manchester the previous week Kilmer charged back to take his first ever win in the O’Shea’s Auto Repair 25-lapper. Kilmer led this race from the start but was forced to fight off title race leader Elliot Wohl of Beachwood and Neptune City’s Bryan O’Shea in the closing laps. Kevin Flores and Joe Mongeau, both of Brick, were fourth and fifth.

After Michael Rising of Little Egg Harbor led early before crashing on a lap five restart, Martino charged to the front of the 25-lap Center State Engineering Sportsman race and drove on to his first win over Jarret DiGiantomasso and Kyle Scisco, both of Jackson. Edison’s Neil Rutt III and Carsten DiGiantomasso of Jackson wrapped up the top five.

When early front runner Mike Tillett of Bayville spun from the lead in the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Model 25-lapper, point leader Chris Silvestri raced on to a convincing win. Joe Mongeau was second and Jackson’s Shanon Mongeau, the defending division champion, was third. Michelle Moorman and Andy Gamble were fourth and fifth.
