Mat Williamson Earns $53,000 Speed Showcase 200 Victory, Brian Krummel Crate 602 Star at Port Royal

Written by Chris Moore Photo:Tom Morris/Myracenews


PORT ROYAL, PA –
 An unforgettable, inaugural ‘Speed Showcase 200’ at Port Royal Speedway was capped off with a 200-lap main event for the ages Saturday night.


St. Catharines, Ont., native Mat Williamson grabbed the checkered – and the biggest paycheck in Northeast dirt Modified racing this season for the Behrent’s Performance Warehouse No. 3 team.


The win netted ‘Money Mat’ $53,000-plus, and another high-paying event added to his resume. Along with the large paycheck, it was Williamson’s first career Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Modified victory.


“Thanks to Brett Deyo (STSS promoter) and Port Royal for doing this. It’s incredible to be able to race for $53,000 in the times we’re in right now,” Williamson proclaimed in Victory Lane.


Williamson is not just racing for the paychecks; he keeps on winning them.


A pair of Keystone State drivers – Alex Yankowski and Danny Bouc – led the 42-car field to the green in the first ever ‘Speed Showcase 200’ edition.


Williamson quickly showed his Bicknell Race Cars mount as one of the fastest cars on the track: climbing from his ninth starting position to take the lead for the first time with just 16 laps completed.


An otherwise clean-and-green start to the 200-lap event came to a grinding halt, literally, on lap 42, as Frenchtown, N.J.’s, Billy Pauch Jr. had a throttle stick on his Rick Holsten-owned No. 96, sending him head on into the third-turn guardrail. Fortunately, Pauch Jr. walked away after flipping violently.


The guardrail suffered extensive damage and required the Port Royal track crew to complete repairs.


Middletown, N.Y.’s Anthony Perrego found the top side of the ‘Speed Palace’ to his liking when racing resumed after an hour-and-a-half delay and used the top line to take the lead and ultimately lead the field to the lap-100 halfway break.

The lead at the race’s midpoint earned Perrego the $600 halfway bonus courtesy of Precision Hydraulic & Oil.

Following the halfway break – with some cars using the hot pit area and others remaining on the speedway to advance positions – Sprakers, N.Y.’s, Stewart Friesen established himself as the car to beat in the second half of the main event. Friesen stretched out his lead and carved through lapped traffic with ease.

A lap-180 caution flag changed the complexion of the race.


Friesen’s lead evaporated and Williamson pulled alongside Friesen for a double-file restart.


Friesen chose the inside lane. Williamson remained event down the long Port Royal frontstretch. When Friesen drove hard into turn one and slid across the track, Williamson shot the gap to the inside to take a lead he would not relinquish.


Despite a late-race, single-file restart that put Friesen back on Williamson’s bumper, Williamson was able to repel Friesen’s bold outside-lane tactics to score the STSS breakthrough triumph.


Sprakers, N.Y.’s Friesen settled for a $20,000 runner-up finish and snagged an additional $1,000 via the Mike’s Racing Heads Hard Charger Award for his 38-position ascent from 39th starting position. Friesen took a series provisional to start the 200 after losing an engine in his Friday night Dirt Track Digest-sponsored Qualifying Race.


Savannah, N.Y.’s, Matt Sheppard charged late with fresh rear tires to secure a podium finish and accompanying $10,000 payday for his Hurlock Auto & Speed-sponsored team.


Perrego held onto a fourth-place finish aboard Brian Smith’s Superior Remodeling No. 44 and Larry Wight of Phoenix, N.Y., charged through traffic in the final laps to complete the front five driving the Gypsum Racing No. 99L. Wight started the 200 from 14th position.


Mooresville, N.C.’s, Max McLaughlin ran inside the top-10 for much of the event, finishing sixth aboard a Sweeteners Plus No. 32c. Completing the top-10 were Ryan Godown of Ringoes, N.J., up from 15th in the Steve Searock No. 26; Andy Bachetti of Sheffield, Mass., who started 29th on the grid; pole starter and early leader Alex Yankowski of Covington Township, Pa.; and Sidney, N.Y.’s Billy Decker recovering from a turn-three melee with the Jeremy Smith Racing No. 91. Decker started 26th.


Saturday B-Main winners were Decker and Brandon Grosso. Matt DeLorenzo topped a special 3-lap Dash to earn the 38th starting position in the 200.

The Ice Less LLC-sponsored ‘Speed Showcase 50’ for the Crate 602 Sportsman did not lack drama – just like its Modified counterpart.  


Middletown, N.Y.’s, Brian Krummel continued his impressive return to racing, winning the $2,500 payday. Krummel charged from his ninth starting to position to take the lead on lap 17. Despite several challenges Krummel never faltered in his Howie Finch Jr.-owned No. 4, taking home a $2,995 payday including bonuses and special awards.


Upper Makefield, Pa.’s Joe Toth did all he could, as he charged in the late stages to second; but was unable to find a way by Krummel working a lower lane on the half-mile oval. Toth had surged forward from 10th starting position.


Geneva, N.Y.’s, Kevin Root followed Toth on the late-race charge, but he – like Toth – ran out of laps. Root started the event from 11th position.


Jackson, N.J.’s, Steve Davis, Krummel’s Ice Less LLC teammate, challenged Krummel up front early on, but faded to a fourth-place finish. Niskayuna, N.Y.’s, Tim Hartman Jr. moved forward from 15th starting position to complete the front five in Michael Parillo’s No. 22.  


Saturday Crate 602 Sportsman B-Main winners were Dakota Kohler and Grant Hilfiger. The last-chance 3-lap Dash went to Trent Willey in a thriller over fellow Delaware resident Sean Metz.


The three-day inaugural ‘Speed Showcase 200’ weekend was well-received by fans and competitors alike. Port Royal Speedway promoter Steve O’Neal and STSS organizer Brett Deyo are already working on plans for a 2021 edition.

MATT SHEPPARD KICKS OFF SPEED SHOWCASE WITH THURSDAY PORT ROYAL VICTORY

Written by Chris Moore Photo STSS


PORT ROYAL, PA –
 Dominant. That is the only word to describe the performance of Matt Sheppard’s performance.  


After narrowly losing out to Anthony Perrego in the most recent event held at Port Royal Speedway last March, Matt Sheppard got retribution Thursday night at the Speed Palace. The Savannah, N.Y., driver topped the ‘Speed Showcase 40’ for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Modified Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central.


Sheppard was clearly the dominant force in an event run on the tacky half-mile clay oval, earning $5,450 for his efforts: $5,000 from the posted purse, $400 as the Danny’s Pizza Pizzazz Halfway Leader and $50 as one of six Ad-Art Sign Company heat winners.


“I led a lot of the race the last time I was here (in March 2019),” offered Sheppard after climbing from his Hurlock Auto & Speed No. 9s. “We had a really good car tonight. I was being conservative and trying to keep the car straight once I got out front.”


Sheppard will start Saturday night’s ‘Speed Showcase 200’ no worse than 13th via his victory on Thursday. He can improve that position via Friday night’s Dirt Track Digest-sponsored Qualifying Races but is guaranteed to fire off from the seventh row in the 200.


‘Super Matt’ worked past pole starter Joseph ‘Jo-Jo’ Watson on the fourth lap of the 40-lap event. Max McLaughlin, making his Short Track Super Series debut, challenged Sheppard through numerous restarts before slapping the outside wall in the Sweeteners Plus No. 32c to draw the caution.


As Sheppard led, all eyes were on the Rick Holsten-owned No. 96 driven by Billy Pauch Jr. The ‘Kid’s Kid’ started 22nd and sliced through the field to arrive in the runner-up spot by the halfway mark.


With the race’s second half spun off under green-flag conditions, Pauch Jr. closed on Sheppard but took starter Joe Kriss’ checkered flag by roughly a straightaway.


The win for Sheppard was his 11th career STSS Modified victory, second of the season and first-ever at Port Royal.


Pauch Jr. finished second, earning the Southern Super Modified Series-sponsored $200 Hard Charger award, bringing the Milford, N.J., resident’s earnings to $3,200 for the runner-up effort.


Mike Mahaney of King Ferry, N.Y., authored a stout drive to complete the podium in the Adirondack Auto No. 35. Mahaney challenged Pauch heavily in the final five laps for third.


Mat Williamson of St. Catharines, Ont., powered from 19th starting position to finish fourth in the Behrent’s Performance Warehouse No. 3 and Australian Peter Britten completed the front five.


Sheppard, Pauch Jr., Mahaney and Williamson will start no worse than 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th in Saturday’s 200-lap main event.


Finishing sixth through 10th, respectively, were Rocky Warner of Gloversville, N.Y., who ran inside the top-five for much of the race; Stewart Friesen of Sprakers, N.Y., rebounding from a pair of pit stops after impacting the turn-three wall on the race’s opening lap; Richie Pratt Jr. of Woodbury Heights, N.J., in the Daniel Sommeling No. 51; Danny Bouc of Pipersville, Pa.; and Ryan Godown of Ringoes, N.J., who rallied late for a top-10 finish.


A huge field of 61 STSS Modifieds signed in for competition, requiring six heat races. Taking the $50 Ad-Art Sign Company victories were Alex Yankowski, McLaughlin, Michael Maresca, Sheppard, Josh Hohenforst and Bouc.


Three B-Mains were run with victories going to Williamson, Friesen and Billy Decker.


A massive turnout of 65 Crate 602 Sportsman took part in four rounds of practice sessions throughout the night. Garden State driver Stephen Kemery turned the quickest lap of the night (21.305 seconds) and received $50 cash courtesy of Evergreen Fuels.


Tonight (Friday), Bob Hilbert Sportswear presents Qualifying Night with Dirt Track Digest-sponsored, $750-to-win STSS Modified 20-lap qualifiers and Belmont’s Garage $250-to-win Crate 602 Sportsman 15-lap qualifiers plus Four Cylinder Pure Stocks racing for $500 to win in a 20-lap feature.


Gates open at 4 p.m., with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m.


In-person attendance is permitted and the event will be streamed live on Dirt Track Digest TV (www.dirttrackdigest.tv).


Grandstand admission is $15 for Adults, $10 for Seniors (ages 13-18) and Children 12 and under are FREE. Pit admission is $35, with no license required.
