The first of the semi-weekly mod shows at Claremont. Even though it was a short field, watching Rusty Ball come back through the field after being put tail and then wage a torrid but clean battle with Joey Jarvis for the win (Jarvis prevailed) was worth many times the price of admission.
...Stewie Friesen and a guy named Dylan Dewart side by side battle for nearly 20 laps. The finish was tempered a bit by a late race caution, but it was still an amazing display of hard racing and respect for one another.............................kt
Oswego Supers because of the speed was an awesome display of driving with the cars really hanging it out exiting the turns and still averaging over 130mph each lap. Woodhull race was great as KT said for the final side by side laps on a real dirt bullring. Cornwall SDS Mod race with Hearn coming on after the final restart was pretty good and Danny Johnson passing Pat Ward at 5 Mile on the final lap was a good one as well. Take your pick as I saw a variety at a bunch of different tracks in 2015.
Canandaigua Motorsports Park. NASCAR Night. Dave Roberts reports:
August 10, 2015
CANANDAIGUA, NEW YORK_
A large crowd made their way through the gates last Saturday night at the Canandaigua Motorsports Park with the Lucas Oil Sprints making their second appearance of the 2015 season at the Ontario County Fairgrounds for round number two of Sprintacular sponsored by Cobra Motorhomes/Wilkins RV and Northeastern Pool and Spa.
In the 35 lap Big Block Modified feature, Justin Haers won for the third time at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in 2015. Haers came on late in the main event after starting in the thirteenth position.
?I was getting ready to go to the pits on caution to change the right rear tire,? said Haers afterwards.
Haers took the lead on lap 30 after chasing down then leader Mike O?Brien,who led much of the race and finished second. Vic Coffey was third. Early leader Dave Ruscher was fourth while Chad Homan was fifth.
You have no idea how bad my nails were chewed to a nub. First I was screaming for Vic (I was sitting with his wife and kids), and then... HOLT SH!T!!! Justin has the lead... I think I scared some people that night....
Close second is Vic Coffey's win the night before the New Yorker at Utica. I think it was the third night out with the new 2016 Bicknell X and there he was, in Victory Lane.
