Kisthardt Scores Cup Win, ” Fitzy ” Takes IROC Win

Holiday doubleheader action was on tap at Randy’s Raceway on Tuesday night and in the Cup opener Bryan Kisthardt turned in a perfect run winning all 6 segments to score his 3rd Cup win of the season. Randy Haydt scored 3 segment wins on the inner lanes to turn in his best Cup finish of the year coming home 2nd. Billy Decker scored 3 segment wins on way to a solid 3rd place finish, his 4th straight Top 5 of the season. John Kosmoski seems to have the new Tri -Oval surface figured out as he scored his 1st segment win of the year and a good 4th place finish. Mark Williams had a solid run going winning 2 segments but a rare crash out on lane 6 hurt his chances but still came home with a 5th place finish.

6th Mike Fitzgerald / 7th Brian Sponagle / 8th Scott Bender / 9th Tony Zappacosta ( 1win ) / 10th Brian VanBuskirk


It was race 4 of the IROC season this race with AW SUPER III cars. The 6 lap segments lead to some very close finishes and some very hard wrecks, making his 1st appearance at Randy’s Raceway this year and on the new surface Mike Fitzgerald scored 4 segment wins on way to his 1st IROC win. Long time regular Alex Amore scored 2 segment wins on way to a good 2nd place finish. Only 8 pieces of track behind point leader Mark Williams scored 2 segment wins to finish 3rd. Trailing Mark by only 3 pieces of track Billy Decker and Scott Bender crossed the line in a tie for 4th.

6th Randy Haydt / 7th Bryan Kisthardt ( 1win ) / 8th Brian Sponagle ( 1win ) / 9th Cory Reinhart/10th John Kosmoski ( 1win ).

Good to see Bob& Alex Amore back with us along with Mike Fitzgerald. Good runs turned in by John Kosmoski 4th, Tony Zappacosta his 1st segment win and a 9th place finish, and Brian Van Buskirk 10th all in Cup action. Congrats to Mike F on the IROC win, and to Alex Amore finishing 2nd. Thanks to everyone who flagged, including Adam Zappacosta who flagged for his 1st time and did a good job. Fitzy’s win in IROC makes it 4 winners in 4 races. From 2nd to 9th in IROC were seperated by 1 lap. Thanks to Randy for preparing the cars, maybe we will see them later this year.
