Nocella Tops Valenti Modified Racing Series Field

Posted by Wayne G. Barber

Oxford Plains Speedway, Oxford Plains, Maine

   Anthony Nocella of Woburn, MA. started tenth and methodically worked his way through the field, taking command on lap 63 and then held off late race charges by Jon McKennedy, David Schneider, and Todd Patnode to claim his third series victory of the year.
   "Every time we come here the car is pretty good, so we came back here with the same setup and just tighten it up a little bit extra. I just tried to keep the tires under it and slowly work our way to the front, the car was pretty perfect the whole race. It did wiggle the last five laps because we were pushing to get away from Jon. (McKennedy)  He didn't let us get away too easy. We had a plan and stuck with it" Nocella said.

   A steadily improving Colbey Fournier of Berkley,MA. and David Schneider of Northport, NY brought the field down to starter John Spence Jr.s green flag and Fournier proved he was a serious contender by taking the initial lead, but a lap one spin by Rob Richardi Jr. brought the first of three yellows of the event. Matt Mead was collected in the crash and eliminated from the event.
The restart now had Woody Pitkat of Sturbridge,MA. who muscled his way up from row two starting along side Fournier , who again jetted into the lead. Pitkat settled into second stalking Fournier until lap eighteen when Pitkat used an outside move and drove away with the lead.

   By the thirty lap mark, MRS heavy hitters David Schneider, Todd Patnode, Jon McKennedy, Chris Pasteryak and Anthony Nocella took advantage of a fading Fournier.

   Schneider flexed his muscled on lap 38 and drove by Pitkat who developed handling issues but a spin by Maine driver Bill Dixon caused the second yellow of the event and because the lap was not completed, Schneider had to drop back to second. Under caution Pitkat pitted for adjustments giving the lead back to the Long Island driver

   For the next thirty laps it looked like smooth sailing for Schneider while behind him the racing was getting more intense. Nocella was now in attack mode and picked off Pasteryak, then McKennedy and finally Patnode to move into Schneiders tire tracks. By lap 63 Nocella powered by Schneider with McKennedy following for second.
   A lap 66 spin by Fournier was the cause for yellow and the field was slowed for the final run to the checkers. The restart had Nocella taking charge with Schneider and McKennedy running side by side for the next five laps, neither could gain an advantage, finally McKennedy prevailed taking over second place then went after race leader Nocella looking inside then outside trying to make the winning move but Nocella was just to strong and held on for the win.

  McKennedy finished 1.045 second behind. "It was a good run for us, first half a little tight and last thirty laps had an awful push, over all it was a good night to get second and had a good battle for the lead. With 30 to go I was just hanging on, apparently we loss some stagger, about an inch. We cant win them all and still its been a great season" McKennedy said.

   Richmond, NH driver Todd Patnode pulled off a late race charge passing Schneider for third place on lap 96." I wasn't sure how to set this car up for Oxford, I thought I had a good piece at the beginning but it went really tight and wouldn't turn at all, but we pitted on a caution and flipped flopped tires which gave us a little stagger which made it a little too free, but free is drive-able, tight is not. So were very pleased with our finish." Patnode noted.

   Schneider held on to finish fourth while Donnie Lashua of Cannan,NH rounded out the top five. Schneider commented, "The car was good, very good, our plan was to let guys go and just save our tires and that's what we did. When Woody pitted and gave us the lead I was just still cruising. At lap 60 it tightened up and that's when some guys got by me but we're happy to come in fourth".

 This is the third win in 2016 for Nocella on a partial schedule and career win number five to tie driver Andy Seuss in this great touring series.

   Sixth thru tenth were 15ct.-Chris Pasteryak, 33- Rob Richardi Jr., 55- Joe Doucette, 16- Colbey Fournier, 93- George Sherman.

   Heat winners: Colbey Fournier, David Schneider

Bonsignore Drives Home Win At Riverhead

Posted by Wayne G. Barber
Justin Bonsignore celebrates his win Saturday night at Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway. It was Bonsignore's second NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win of the year and his 10th of his career.

RIVERHEAD, N.Y. -- Justin Bonsignore came up short at home in June. He wasn't going to let it happen again Saturday night.
The 28-year-old from Holtsville, New York, held off the charge of brother Timmy and Shawn Solomito to score the victory in the Riverhead 200 at Long Island's Riverhead Raceway. It was a night of milestones for Bonsignore, who earned his 10th career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour win in his 100th career start.
Bonsignore kept the No. 51 Phoenix Communications Inc. Chevrolet out front for a race-high 117 laps. He kept the Solomitos behind him on a final restart with nine laps remaining to secure the win.
In June, Bosignore finished second to Timmy Solomito on a green-white-checkered finish at Riverhead. Bosignore, both Solomitos and fourth-place Tom Rogers Jr. are all Long Island natives. It was Bonsignore's fourth win at his home track, where he was the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I champion in 2011.
Timmy Solomito led 70 laps on the quarter-mile but had to settle for a runner-up finish this time. Shawn Solomito won his first career Coors Light Pole Award earlier in the day -- knocking Timmy off the provisional pole as the second-to-last driver to make a qualifying lap -- and led the other 13 laps.
In addition to the win, Bonsignore cut Doug Coby's championship points lead to 13 with five races remaining. Timmy Solomito remains 35 points back of Coby, who finished 15th.
Jimmy Blewett, Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate Craig Lutz, Max Zachem, Frank Vigliarolo Jr. and Eric Goodale rounded out the top 10.
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour heads to upstate New York next Saturday for the Toyota Mod Classic 150 presented by McDonald’s at Oswego Speedway.
The Riverhead 200 will air on NBCSN on Thursday, Sept. 1, at 7 p.m.

Payea Takes Third Win of Season in Thriller at Oxford

Posted by Wayne G. Barber

Oxford, ME – Colchester, VT’s Scott Payea emerged as the victor in a heavyweight thriller at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, August 27, beating out Eddie MacDonald, Dillon Moltz, and Brad Babb for his third American-Canadian Tour (ACT) win of the season in the Dave’s Small Engines/Ferris Mowers 100.

Payea, Babb, and MacDonald had engaged in a three-way battle for more than half the race, with Payea and Babb swapping the lead numerous times while MacDonald lurked in the wings. Payea finally gained the edge for good shortly after a lap-79 caution for Emily Packard’s spin, sweeping around the outside of Babb for the event’s 13th lead change. The title contender then held on through two more restarts for his eighth career ACT Late Model Tour victory and first at Oxford.

Hinesburg, VT’s Bobby Therrien, the winner at Oxford in the ACT season opener, led the first five laps from the pole before Rich Dubeau got around him following a hard duel to lead his first laps ever in ACT competition. Babb followed Dubeau up the outside line, then swung to the outside himself to nab the point on lap 18.

Payea and MacDonald worked their way to second and third shortly thereafter, and following a lap-29 caution for an incident between Walter J. Hammond and Mark Jension, the three began their battle royale. Babb and Payea, constantly swapped lanes and the lead, with MacDonald sticking his nose into second multiple times in his own attempt to get the top spot. At one point, Babb and Payea rode through turns three and four sideways as they went three-wide around lapped traffic, with neither willing to give an inch. Meanwhile, Moltz steadily moved up from his 19th starting position, and looked to be one caution away from joining the fray.

The two traded the lead three more times on successive laps following the lap-79 restart before Payea finally gained control. MacDonald followed him into second and made bids for the lead following cautions on laps 88 and 90, but it was Payea who would ultimately wear the championship belt.

MacDonald settled for second, while Moltz  swiped third in the closing laps. Babb faded to fourth, followed by ACT point leader Nick Sweet in fifth. Unofficially, Sweet’s lead over Payea will shrink to just two points, with MacDonald 16 points back in third.

Rookie Ryan Olsen earned a career-best sixth-place finish, while Rowland Robinson, Jr. roared back from an early pit stop to take seventh. Packard recovered from her misfortune to finish eighth. Scptt Dragon and Dubeau completed the top-10.

The ACT Late Model Tour concludes its Maine swing with a return trip to Scarborough’s Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18 for New England 500 Weekend. Qualifying will be held on Saturday, with the Fall Foliage 200 on Sunday marking the next-to-last event of the 2016 season. The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models and Valenti Modified Racing Series will also be in action. Post time is 12:00pm both days.

Donny Schatz Wins for Eighth Time at River Cities Speedway

Posted by Wayne G. Barber
GRAND FORKS, N.D. - August 26, 2016 - Donny Schatz scored a pair of sweeps on Friday night with the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series at River Cities Speedway in his home state of North Dakota. First, he completed a clean sweep of the night, setting fast time, winning a heat race, winning the dash and winning the 40-lap A-Feature. Second, he completed a sweep of both legs of the Gerdau Northern Tour at River Cities Speedway for 2016.
The win for Schatz was his fourth straight with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series at the high-banked, action-packed bullring. In his career, the seven-time and defending Outlaws champion has now won eight times with the series at the track.
"This race team is incredible, it's not me," said Schatz of his success at River Cities Speedway. "The things they think of to make this race car better is amazing. I just have a habit of having a dumb way of driving it. I like it laying on the right rear like the late model. It really works, especially here. Sunday at Angell Park, I thought I had the best race car I had ever driven. That thing was awesome, but tonight, it was unbelievable. I think one of my eight-year-old nieces could have won that race in that race car. This race team is on their game. It's what they do, day in and day out. I'm just the lucky guy that gets to drive it."
Schatz started on the pole and led from the drop of the green flag. The first caution of the night fell on the second lap. He chose the low side of the track on the double file restart and opened a quick lead, as Logan Schuchart, Brad Sweet and David Gravel waged a side-by-side battle for the second spot for several laps. The second and final yellow flag of the night flew on lap-13, with the remainder of the race going green, putting Schatz in heavy lapped traffic for most of the duration of the 40-lap contest in his Bad Boy Off-Road J&J.
"It was fun in traffic," said Schatz. "If you're not leading and in second or third, you want to use that traffic to your advantage to try to move around. When you are leading, it's what you look forward to and try not to make mistakes, because it can gap you between yourself and the field. I could run the top and the bottom and threw enough stuff off the bottom that you could run in the middle. We were lapping some really, really good cars."
Schatz now has won 17 A-Feature events in his career with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series in his home state of North Dakota, at four different tracks. He has one more chance to add to that on Sunday at his home track of Nodak Speedway in Minot.
"I'm a damn proud North Dakotan," said Schatz. "This state is where I grew up. We are fortunate in North Dakota to have a lot of great race tracks. Everybody needs to keep that in mind and keep supporting them. This is a part of the country that still has a lot of dirt track racing and it's disappearing in other parts of the country. It's strong here and let's keep it that way."
Brad Sweet picked up his third consecutive podium finish over the last week and a half, as he crossed the line second. After battling Schuchart and Gravel in the early going, Sweet moved into second on the seventh lap. He was able to gain a little ground on Schatz in traffic in the middle portions of the race, but was never able to gain enough ground to make a bit for the lead.
"Donny (Schatz) was awfully good, like he's been the last four or five times here," Sweet shared. "It's tough to beat him at one of his home state tracks, just like any other place. We are pretty happy with how the car handled tonight. To be up here on the front straightaway with Donny is all good. We are still chasing him and trying to get our program a little better so we can win these races."
Sweet started fourth and was able to quickly move forward and maintain his spot near the front of the field aboard the Ollie's Bargain Outlet machine. With his runner-up finish, Sweet moved into the second spot in points.
"We had great speed all night," said Sweet. "Getting through lapped traffic, Donny was just a little bit better. He was able to go in the middle and do a few things we weren't able to do. We'll go back and do our homework. I have to thank my guys for working hard."
Mark Dobmeier, who hails from Grand Forks, made a late-race charge to finish third. Dobmeier started seventh and fell back a few spots early in the race, before gaining quite a few positions in the final 20 laps of the 40-lap race.
"About halfway through, the car really came on," explained Dobmeier. "I knew it was a long race and I had to save my (right rear) tire a little bit. I saved it up for a bit. I don't know if it was me getting on the gas or these fans, but we got some electricity going and this thing was charging forward. We turning as fast of laps as we could. We just needed a caution or something at the end to bunch them up again. That's what you get for starting sixth, but I got up on the wheel and got it going."
Dobmeier, who is the winningest sprint car driver in River Cities Speedway history, has been close on several occasions to scoring a win with the series at his home track. While he has three career World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series wins on his resume, one at River Cities is what still eludes him.
"I would give up a Knoxville Nationals win to win one here with the Outlaws," said Dobmeier. "I've won a couple in Sioux Falls, which is kind of a second home track to me, and the crowd gets electric, but it cannot beat the crowd at Grand Forks when these guys get on their feet and cheering."
Logan Schuchart finished fourth on Friday night to earn his second straight top-five finish at River Cities. Joey Saldana was fifth, with Daryn Pittman coming home sixth. Jason Johnson was seventh, while David Gravel was eighth, Shane Stewart ninth and Dusty Zomer 10th.
The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series returns to action on Sunday, August 28 at Nodak Speedway in Minot, North Dakota, with the running of the Gerdau Magic City Showdown.
