REED AND HOPKINSON ARE WALL MODIFIED TWIN WINNERS

WALL, N.J. ~ Steven Reed of Jackson and Toms River’s Derek Hopkinson were winners in All American Auto Group Modified stock car twin 35-lap main events at Wall Stadium on Saturday night. The wins came in front of a large “First Responders Night” crowd.

In the first Modified race Reed and early leader Andrew Krause of Holmdel struggled for the top spot early before they touched on a restart. Krause went sliding as a result as Reed raced into the lead. Reed then fought off Brick’s Eric Mauriello in the late stages of the contest before nailing down the win. Roger Coss of Lafayette was third in the 20-car field, while Tyler Truex of Mayetta and Long Island’s Ken Matlach wrapped up the top five.

Hopkinson charged to the front at the outset of the second 35-lapper and never looked back. Matlach haunted him early before Truex advanced to second and challenged. Later in the race Truex had to divert his attention from chasing Hopkinson and fighting off the advances of Reed. Krause and Mauriello were fourth and fifth.

After his car was nearly destroyed in a wreck in his last race here John Carpenter of Howell took the lead with an outside lane pass and then raced to victory in the companion 25 lapper for the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stocks. Wall’s Bryan O’Shea and Manchester’s Scott Riggleman, who was involved in that recent wreck with Carpenter, was third. Shanon Mongeau of Jackson and John Bowers of Pt. Pleasant were fourth and fifth.

An outside lane pass was also the winning move for Carsten DiGiantomasso of Jackson in the 25-lap Center state Engineering Sportsman feature race. Micheal Carr of Pt. Pleasant advanced to second by the finish with Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor, Kyle Scisco of Jackson and Edison’s Neil Rutt III finishing third through fifth.

Point leader Rutt continued his winning ways by taking the top spot in the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks. Early leader Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim was second while Ryan Maher and Jeffrey Loesch, both of Neptune City, and Ian Ashford of Howell completed the top five.

Jackson’s Shanon Mongeau won the 25-lapper for the Mike’s Performance Center Limited Late Models over Bayville’s Mike Tillett, Chris Silvestri of Hazlet, Michelle Moorman and Greg Gastelu.
