Finocchario Unstopable-Takes Win #5 n a Row

No Stopping Finocchario, Grabs 5th NYSS Win In A Row

Friday, the NY Super Stocks finished off their rain delayed feature from the 11th at Spencer Speedway. Heats had been completed the week before so the field was set and the racers were eager to run the last event before the big upcoming Dave London Memorial this coming Friday. After the redraw, Southern Tier ace (and new dad) Lee Sharpsteen found himself setting the pace for the field with Zach Willis outside pole. Mr. Domination, Chris Finocchario would be starting 9th with a lot of quick cars in front of him. Chris was not going to get to the front easily this night.

At the green flag Sharpsteen grabbed the lead with Willis dropping behind him to secure second. With the DLM on driver’s minds, the racing was close and clean. Lap four was the first of only four cautions on the night. Finocchario was not getting the benefit of cautions to help him move up. From lap 14 the crowd and teams watched Chris slowly work his way through the field, eventually securing second but with only five laps remaining, the raced look like Sharpsteen’s. Suddenly on lap 22, high point contender Chris Vogler spun after some contact and Briana Dinzler took evasive action to avoid hard contact negating her best run of the year. With three laps to go the restart saw Lee on the pole, Chris on the outside and the fans on their feet. Lee grabbed the lead but Chris was too close to be denied and took the lead on lap 23 and secured win #5 in a row! Sharpsteen rolled to second, Josh Schoonmaker came home third, his best ever finish. Willis held on for 4th and Dylan Bancroft took home 5th.

Notes: Dylan’s dad is home recovering from his shop accident, wanted to come watch his son, but momma said no (for now). We will be seeing him soon and wish him well. The only car not able to return was the #3 of Jimmy Steffenhagen Jr., Jimmy is the only driver to beat Finocchario this season.

Heats (8/11) were won by Billy Coyle, Finocchario, and rookie Mike Hyman (his first heat win).

Feature (8/18): FINOCCHARIO, Sharpsteen, Schoonmaker, Willis, Bancroft, Peckham, Hyman, Pesarek, Cheetham, Frarey, Coyle, J. Dinzler, Vogler, Lazzaro, S. Dinzler, Atkins, Blair, Gleason, B. Dinzler, Stone, K. Miller, Larner, Ide, J. Miller

I've got a lot of stories and a few of them are even true. I've just forgotten which are which.
