Finocchario Wins NYSS Firecracker 50 at Adirondack International Speedway
Saturday July 1, 2017

New Breman, NY- Amid strong thunderstorms across Central NY, the NY Superstock Series gambled that mother nature would give everyone a break and allow some racing up in the North Country on this holiday weekend. Drivers itching to get back to racing drove for hours from all across NY state, PA and NC to do battle, and battle they did. After some fast and clean qualifying events, the main event would prove to be an unintended enduro. Eleven cautions, mostly for individual spins or two car tangles, would result in some wary drivers and a couple cars running out of fuel.

The NYSS presented by Aratari Auto Finishers started 22 cars in the Northcoast Performance Parts 50 Lap special with Joe Miller and Chris Finocchario leading them to the green. After a great side by side first lap Chris took the top spot from Joe but quickly, a multi car accident on the front straight collected several cars and brought out the first of many cautions. This wreck would eventually be the demise of top performer, Jim Steffenhagen Jr. and Rookie of the Year contender Joel Gleason. Finocchario would hold the top spot through the entire event fending off challenges from several drivers who had run AIS in the past. On one restart 2016 AIS Champion Dylan Bancroft nearly grabbed the lead away with a strong inside move. Chris fought hard to secure the lead and was never seriously challenged the rest of the race. Chris would bring his beautiful car home for the win followed by Dylan Bancroft, Billy Coyle, rookie Kenny Atkins (his best finish of the season) and Hard Charger Chris Vogler who started last in the 22 car field.

The Aratari Auto Finishers NYSS next event will be July 14th at Spencer Speedway in Williamson, NY
