BY THE NUMBERS

So as our season is coming to an end here are some numbers as compiled by Scott and Mark.  We have 3 Modified and single Sprint and NASCAR events left for the season.  We have had a good year as far as attendance and competition.  The myth surrounding the lane 2 pill is uncovered for Jim’s piece of mind.  Although he says he always gets #2 actually this season he did get it 4 times, Mark got it 3 times and Cory and Spoons got it twice.  10 drivers got it just once so it was fairly even. 

Also our numbers for driver entries in Modified are up almost 2 per week.  The season average in Modified is now 19.2.  In NASCAR numbers are up by almost 5 drivers per week to a season average of 18.3.  Sprint entries are up about 1 driver for a 14.3 per race average.

SOME NUMBERS REVISED

The lane two facts are although Jim has picked lane 2 four times in reality his % is much higher because he now waits until that number has been pulled so he really pulled it all most every time he drew this season.  Now if only he could pull the winning 50/50 every week…………………..

Williams Falls Short of Sweep

Mark Williams won his second Modified feature in a row this time on the smooth new 8 lane just missing a sweep scoring a 19.31 on lane one.  Williams won for the fifth time this season.  Randy Haydt scored 19 in all 8 lanes as he ran side by side with the eventual winner all evening.  Third spot in his best finish of the season was veteran Billy Decker.  Decker scored a segment win on lane three and had at least 19 laps on every lane but lane one.  Fourth spot went to Scott Bender in his fast Modified stocker winning a segment on lane two.  Rounding out the first five was Cory Reinhard who won 3 segments on the evening.  The rest of the top ten were, Mike Feltenberger (1 win), Bill Rowley (1 win),Laudan Seyfried (2 wins), Jim LeVan and Brian Sponagle.

 

Newsworthy-   Good having Mike Feltenberger in the field again this week keeping my string going of racing with him since around 1973.  He must be getting old.  16 racers signed in the pit area this week as Bruce and Bill made another start on the super 8 lane.  Bill had some strong runs going including a segment win on lane six and a fine 7th place finish in the main event.  Team TCS racer Cory Reinhard continued his great season with another top five in his family owned Modified.  Cory has been in contention almost every week this year.

Williams Wins 4th Modified Feature

Mark Williams won for the fourth time this season at Randy’s Raceway using the Tri-Oval to record a 6 pieces of track win over last weeks race winner Randy Haydt.  Williams won 5 segments after struggling on lane 1.  Haydt won a single segment on lane 3 in a torrid battle with Jim LeVan.  Third spot went to Toby Reinhard from Boyertown.  Reinhard won three segments in the ride normally driven by his son Cory.  TCS Racing had three in the top 8 this week.  Scott Bender finished fourth with a good ride despite breaking a nub in the final segment with just 2 laps to go.  Rounding out the top five was Jim LeVan who won his segment on lane one which is not an easy feat to do.  This was the only segment win on the night in lane one.  Six different drivers won segments including 2 by Savvy and 1 win for Laudan.

Back next week on the super speedway freshly repaved 8 lane for Sprint action.
