Modified Notes-

An unusual segment win scenario happened this week with 17 racers in the field all the segments were won by the first 4 finishers.  This weeks event the double header for the Sprints and IROC cars has been cancelled because of Stella.  Next event will be the Mighty Modifieds on the 8 lane.  Also a special 15 lap match race for the last 8 finishers will be held with parts prizes for the winner.  Thanks to Chris Brubaker and Hiester’s HO Raceway for the idea.

Congratulations to Cory Reinhard and TCS Racing

TCS Racing was in the winners circle with win in the Modified Feature last night at Randy’s Raceway.  We have all watched Cory grow up into a fine young man and a very good racer.  He has improved every year and capped it off with a great run on the Tri-Oval last night.  Team Reinhard had 3 fast racers in the field and after a tough week for Dad this win had to be extra special.  Just glad I did not have to ride home with Cory after that one.  Hopefully Toby and Savvy could stand it.  Way to go Team TCS we are all very proud of Cory.

Spoons Takes Cup Victory

Brian Sponagle won his second NASCAR Feature win at Randy’s Raceway on the Tricky Tri-Oval.  The first win was last season on the Tub Track road course. Spoons won 4 segments as he narrowly beat Randy Haydt by only 4 pieces of track.  Close racing all night prevailed with many torrid battles.  Eight different drivers won segments.  For Sponagle who is quickly becoming the driver to beat on the Tri-Oval this win follows up his impressive win 2 weeks ago in the Berks- Lebanon Series race.  Haydt ran off 4 straight segment wins on lanes 2 through 5 to earn his runner-up spot and now has a share of the Cup points lead.  Third spot went to Jim LeVan who won 2 segments and looked really fast all night.  [Read more…]
