O’SHEA FACTORY STOCK WINNER AT WALL SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Bryan O’Shea of Neptune City raced through the field to win the 25-lap Factory Stock car main event at Wall Stadium Speedway. O’Shea’s second career victory came in front of a large “Pack the Track” night crowd Saturday.

Nick Kilmer of Howell was the early leader of the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stock race as Tom Rajkowski of Fords stayed right on his bumper. Meanwhile, O’Shea was coming from a mid-pack starting spot in the 23 car field and arrived in third by lap eight. The top three then raced in tight formation for the next eight laps before both Rajkowski and O’Shea used the inside lane to take over the top two spots.

The leading duo then wrestled for three laps before O’Shea took over the lead and then raced on to the win. Rajkowski was second at the stripe with Beachwood’s Elliott Wohl, Kilmer and Scott Riggleman of Manchester completing the top five.

“The car was on rails tonight,” O’Shea said after the contest. “We only had one caution in the race and that came early. The way my car was running that helped us a lot.”

Ronnie Mullen of Brick hitched a ride for the first of two 25-lap races for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stock and raced from the rear of the field to take the win. Neil Rutt III of Edison finished second after fighting the leader with Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim, early leader Ryan Maher of Neptune and Mike Lavery of Orangeburg, N.Y. completing the top five.

Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City raced into the lead with a daring move on the first lap and then held off runner-up Rutt to win the second 25-lap race. Morales, Brick’s Randy Hart and Darianne McLaren of Edison were third through fifth.

Kyle Scisco of Jackson raced to his third win of the campaign in the 25-lapper for the Center State Engineering Sportsman cars. Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson, Louie Keraitis of Toms River, Micheal Rising of Little Egg Harbor and Brick’s Robert Sutphin wrapped up the top five.

The Mike’s Performance Center Limited late Models raced in two 25-lappers, the first rain postponed from May 11. Defending class champion Shannon Mongeau of Jackson swept both races. Chris Silvestri of Hazlet, Bayville’s Mike Tillett, Jackson’s Greg Gastelu and Jim Moorman of Brooklawn were second through fifth in the rain postponed test. Mongeau beat Tillett, Silvestri and Moorman to the line in the regularly scheduled race.

Chris Minton of Kunkelstown, Pa. Won the Demo Derby while Eric Zweibek was second and Norman Lane was third.
