RUTSKI AND VACLAVICEK SCORE WINS ON TWIN TWENTY NIGHT AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY
New Egypt, NJ (April 29, 2018) – On Twin Twenty Night at New Egypt Speedway, Rich Rutski and Kevin Vaclavicek each scored a Modified feature win. The Crate Modified main event was won by Dan Fleming. Jon Meyer captured the victory in the Street Stock race. The Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman feature went to Bobby Holzwarth. Joe Garey, Sr. took top honors in the 4-Cylinder contest.
After three attempts, the first 20-lap Modified feature began with Dominick Buffalino taking command over Jeff Bubori and Rich Rutski. With six circuits in the books, Buffalino was running strong with Rutski advancing into second and Ryan Krachun running in third. On the eighth circuit, Buffalino, who had a full straightaway advantage over the field, pulled into the infield and retired from the race with a mechanical issue. Rutski, a teammate of Buffalino, became the new leader with Krachun taking over second and Danny Bouc moving into third place. Three laps later, Krachun was closing in on Rutski when the yellow flag waved for a spinning Kevin Vaclavicek. On the ensuing restart, Rutski held off a challenge for the lead with Ryan Godown charging into second and John McClelland taking over third. With two additional cautions and resumptions in the final six laps, Rutski held off additional threats to his lead and raced home to his second career win in the Modified ranks. The runner-up spot went to McClelland. With Krachun taking third, Godown slipped back in the final tours to finish in fourth. Jimmy Horton completed the top five.
As the top twelve finishers in the first contest were inverted, the second 20-lap feature got underway with second place starting Chad Barney grabbing the lead. Jeff Bubori and Kevin Vaclavicek were next in line. With three circuits in the books, Vaclavicek advanced past Bubori and began to track down Barney. On the fourth lap, Vaclavicek sped past Barney to become the new leader. Once in front, Vaclavicek began to pull away from the field. On the eighth circuit, Vaclavicek’s sizeable advantage was lost as Barney, who had lost second place to Bubori, spun while running in third place. After a few unsuccessful tries, green flag racing returned with Valclavicek maintaining his position, Ryan Godown in second and Matt Stangle in third. At the halfway point, Stangle drove by Godown to take over the runner-up spot. Over the final half of the affair, Vaclavicek drove flawlessly as he logged his first career Modified feature victory. Second place went to Stangle. Godown completed the race in third with John McClelland taking fourth and Jimmy Horton was fifth. The Modified heat winners were Rich Rutski, Blaine Bracelin and Dominick Buffalino.
In the 20-lap Crate Modified main event, Dan Fleming took the lead from Robbie Dunn on the eleventh tour and paced the field the rest of the way. The win was Fleming’s second career checkered flag in the division. Kyle Kania’s last lap charge past John Aumick earned him a second place finish. With Aumick in third, eleventh place starting Ryan Simmons was fourth. After starting in tenth, Johnny Bangs completed the race in fifth. John Aumick and John Criscione were victorious in the Crate Modified qualifying races.
Jon Meyer slipped beneath Lee Allen in the first corner of the last circuit to take the victory in the 15-lap Street Stock contest. Meyer, who was running in second when he was involved in an incident on the eighth revolution, was able to roar back through the field to collect his third career victory. Billy Wroble slipped by Allen on the final lap as well to take second place. With Allen finishing third, Jim Avery was fourth and Jerry Stanzione was fifth.
After taking the lead on lap five from Matt Miller, Bobby Holzwarth held off Sam Martz, Jr. in the final three tours to win his first Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman feature. The second place finish by Martz was his third consecutive in three events. Miller, who led the opening five circuits, came home in third. Kevin Borden, Jr. and Erich Conk completed the top five.
Joe Garey, Sr. led every step of the way to gain the checkered flag in the 10-lap race for the 4-Cylinders. Justin Dunn, Scott Miller, Scott Dunn and Joe Garey, Jr. followed the victor across the finish line.
