STEVEN REED TOPS WALL MODIFIED OPENING NIGHT THRILLER

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Three-time Wall Stadium Modified stock car driving champion Steven Reed raced in contention for most of the season opening 40-lap main event to put himself in the right place to take the win in the final few laps of the Saturday night main event. This victory brought back memories of ten years earlier when the Jackson resident won the opening night feature and proposed marriage to Katie in victory lane.

Saturday night’s race saw Tommy Martino, Jr. of Farmingdale, Howell’s Jimmy Blewett, Tyler Truex of Little Egg Harbor, Holmdel’s Andrew Krause and Reed wrestle in the top five for most of the event. A lap 38 restart saw Blewett and Truex, who made up the front row, tangled and spin exiting turn two while Reed was able to dart past the carnage and then race on to the win. Martino, Krause, Dom Fattaruso and Eddie McCarthy, both of Brick, wrapped up the top five.

“We had a good top five car tonight and the rest was up to me,” It gave me the chance to be in the spot I was in to take a win. Thanks to Harry and everyone on the car, we were there to take the win.”

After battling with leader Nick Catone of Brick most of the way, former champ Elliot Wohl of Beachwood fought off Howell’s Brian Osborn and Jackson’s Shanon Mongeau to win the 25-lap Factory Stock opener. Defending champ Bryan O’Shea of Neptune City was second when the dust settled, with Howell’s Johnny Carpenter, Robert Stack of Manahawkin and Osborn wrapping up the top five.

Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson fought off several challengers to win the 25-lapper for the Sportsman cars. Hazlet’s Chris Silvestri was the former champs constant rival before finishing second, with Neil Rutt III of Edison, Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City and Tyler Ferris of Freehold rouding out the top five.

Quinn Trimmer of Waldwick fought off constant pressure to win the 25-lap main event for the Legend Cars over a hard charging Alex McCollum, Kevin Nowak, Richie Davidowitz and Nick Morabito.

Billy Pross of Hazlet battled with competitors early and then ran from the field in the second half of the 25-lapper to win his second Fast 4 division feature race. Mike Lavery of Orangeburg, N.Y., Wall’s Alex Graetz, defending champ Alonzo Morales of Burlington and Cookstown’s Nicole Razzano were second through fifth.

Buddy Sload raced to victory in the 25-lap race for the visiting TQ Midgets.

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Jimmy Blewett raced from a seventh starting spot and contended every lap of the 150-lap distance before winning the Tour Type Modified main event during the 48th annual Turkey Derby at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday. It was the Howell resident’s 13th Modified win in in the annual event that returned to the traditional Thanksgiving weekend dates after being postponed by COVID restrictions last fall.

Matt Hirschman of Northampton, Pa. jumped to the lead from the pole on the 24 car field while others including Blake Barney of Jackson, Long Island’s Timmy Solomito, Tyler Truex of Egg Harbor Township and Blewett tried to track him down. When Hirschman dropped from the race on lap 67 with mechanical woes, Solomito took command and stayed in the top spot until lap 82 when he, Blewett and a host of others pitted for tire changes.

Anthony Sesely of Keyport and Holmdel’s Andrew Krause were the top two when action resumed before Krause took command on lap 90. Truex soon raced into the top spot and held the lead until a lap 113 restart when Blewett powered to the front. From that point on Blewett was impressive while Barney raced to second over first time Wall Stadium visitor Andelo Belsito of Oxford, Mass. who qualified at the rear of the field through the last chance race. Solomito and Danny Bohn of Mooresville, N.C. wrapped up the top five.

“This is for all the people who we have lost these past few years,” an emotional winner said after a post race display of burn outs. “We have all lost a lot of relatives and friends and I’ve wanted to dedicate a win to then for a while. I am just so happy to get this win for this new team and team owner Ryan Fisher.”

Note: The Tour Modified finish remains unofficial until results from tire samples return from testing at a laboratory.

Mike Alcaro won the companion 30-lap Legend Cars main event on Saturday over Noah Korner, Luke LeBrun, George Tomko and Joey Braun. Friday’s 40-lap Legend Car main was won by Daniel Carter, with Kevin Nowak, Tomko, LeBrun and Quinn Trimmer wrapping up the top five.

Neil Rutt III of Edison topped Saturday’s Limited Late Model 50-lapper over a top five of Howie Conk, Brandon Turbush, Ray Minieri and Eric Zeh. Saturday’s 50-lap Dirt Modified race was won by Dillon Steuer over Andrew Krause and Ed Dachenhausen. The Dirt Outlaw Stock 25-lapper saw Jaramy Doerr, Spider Ensinger, Sr. and Spider Ensinger, Jr. complete the top three. Briggs Danner won the 30-lap race for the Three Quarter Midgets.

On Friday, Ryan Flores was the winner of the Factory Stock 100 lap race, with Robert Stack, Brian Osborn, Scott Riggleman and Joe Mongeau completing the top five. Ryan Maher won Friday’s Fast 4 Stock feature over Alonzo Morales.
