Kisthardt Wins Mod Main

Veteran racer Bryan Kisthardt continued his great start to the season winning his forth straight Modified main this week at Randy’s Raceway.  17 racers were in attendance  and the action looked close all night right from the practice sessions.  Kisthardt won all lanes except lane one to pick up the win in his brand new Amore body.  It looked like another veteran Jim LeVan was going to end a dry spell after a 19.13 on lane one he went on a tear and won 4 straight.  But really struggled on lane six and ran many laps on the bubble,  this relegated him to a fourth on the night.  Mark Williams won two segments to come home runnerup and had a couple of great battles with Tony Zappacosta on lanes four and five.  Third spot went to last weeks Sprint winner Scott Bender who continues his fine string of runs this year as well.  LeVan was fourth followed by Brian Sponagle who picked off a segment win on lane three and finished a strong fifth.  Rounding out the top ten were   Big T,   Cory Reinhard,   Randy Haydt,   Billy Decker    and   Chris Brubaker.

Modified Madness-

There never seems to be any boundary issues on the Tri-oval because we have green tape on the floor.  A special thanks to Randy for repaving the Tri-Oval after 15 seasons it was time and thanks to Jim LeVan for much of the track to complete the project we never missed a race and Randy spent a lot of time to make it right.  Thanks to Billy Decker and John Kosmoski for helping me with the flagger duties.  With a real strong field of 17 racers we had 8 different segment winners.  Tony Zappacosta had so much fun winning his first modified segment this season on lane four he came back and won number two on lane six.  Congrats to Tony who had a great run this week.  Good to have three veterans in the field again John Kosmoski, Big T and Bill Brenner.  Brian Vanbuskirk had a real good run on lane two and wound up 13th in the feature.  Hopefully Brian gets that segment win soon.  Also thanks to Gary Zappacosta for helping turn marshal (Ralph?)
