Tony Zapacosta Scores First Career IROC Win

It was race 3 of the IROC season running Aurora T-Jets, the 5 lap event turned out to be 1 of the closest  IROC events ever run. The entire field was separated by 1 lap and 1 piece of track. Tony Zapacosta needed a win in his final segment on lane 7 and he scored that win, which was just enough to claim his 1st career win at Randy’s Raceway. Tony’s slim win was by only 5 pieces of track ahead of new comer this year Ed Kenderdine who was making his 1st IROC start. Ed scored a segment win on lane 4 turning in a very good 2nd place finish. Only 2 pieces of track behind Jim LeVan scored 1 segment win his 3rd Top 5 IROC finish this year finishing 3rd. Trailing Jim by 1 piece of track Cory Reinhard scored his best IROC finish this year coming home 4th. Scott Bender had a steady run to finish 5th.

6th Brian Sponagle ( 2 wins ) / 7th Randy Haydt ( 2 wins ) / 8th Toby Reinhard / 9th Brian Van buskirk ( 1 win ) / 10th Tie Savvy ( 2 wins ) / Billy Decker ( 1 win ).


Thanks to Brian Sponagle for his work on the IROC cars were really a lot of fun and great racing, maybe we will see them later this year. Good having Ed Kenderdine making his 1st start in both Cup and IROC. Congrats to Savvy for scoring her 1st 2 segment wins in IROC. More details were discussed about the hard body race coming in December.
