(FONDA, NY) – Saturday night saw the traveling road show of the Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints joining a full night of exciting action on Autism Awareness Night at the Brett Deyo-promoted Fonda Speedway.
Darryl Ruggles, after pulling the number one pill in the redraw, alongside John Cunningham would lead the 18 car field to the green flag after motor issues sidelined the Cory Sparks and Travis Billington machines.
Ruggles would jump out to the early lead but racing action would slow on lap 2 for the slow cars of Mike Van Pelt and Ron Greek who were both able to limp their way back to the pit area under their own power ending their night.
On the restart Mike Kiser made his way up to second from his third place starting spot would immediately go to work on the Ruggles machine. The racing action would slow again on lap 4 for the spinning machine of Cunningham, who unfortunately was sitting right in the groove and was struck by the 18C of Dan Craun- ending Cunningham’s night.
Racing action would then resume with Kiser jumping out to the lead, but the red flag would be displayed for Dana Wagner who flipped on the back stretch- Wagner was okay. Racing action would resume, and Kiser would take the lead from Ruggles on lap 5 again after having to go back a sport after the lap was not completed prior to the red flag.
Jeff Trombley, who was making his way through the pack, would also make his way around Ruggles for the second place spot and would round out the podium. Chase Moran who started 5th faded early on in the race but would make his way back to the number 4 spot. Josh Flint who picked up the win back in June would hold on for a 5th place finish with the hard charging 66 of Chase Moran coming home in 6th.
The Powdertech Powdercoating Hard Charger Bonus saw an addition made to it by Bob and Darcy Gray of “Your Way Café” and went to Jordan Hutton who gained eight spots.
Kiser’s moves to take the lead not once but twice earned him the “Maguire Family of Dealerships Magnificent Move of the Race.”
The award drivers are appreciative of but don’t necessarily want to see at night’s end was awarded to Mike Van Pelt. An 18th place finish saw Van Pelt receive the “Midstate Basement Authorities Out of the Basement” award.
