A Record Turnout For Day One Of The Fulton Speedway Outlaw 200 Weekend; Charlie Sandercock, Jeff May, DJ Forbes, Michael-Wagner Fitzgerald, Corbin Millar Winners
FULTON, NY – September 30, 2017 – A record 265 cars signed in the Fulton pits for day one of the 32nd Annual Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility Outlaw 200 Weekend Presented by SUNY Canton.
Charlie Sandercock (Late Models) Jeff May (Mod Lites) DJ Forbes and Michael-Wagner Fitzgerald (Novice Sportsman) Corbin Millar (4-Cylinders) put their names in the record books as Outlaw 200 Weekend feature winners.
It took 10 heats to qualify 110 Sportsman who were pit-side to try and make it into the Industrial Tire of CNY Sportsman Shootout 50. The five consolations that were set to run were moved to Sunday due to the late hour.
Forty-Four Modifieds ran four 15-lap heat races to lock in the 17-20 starting spots for Sunday’s Outlaw 200. Drivers with those spots could improve their starting spot in Sunday heat races. Billy Decker, Gary Tomkins, Chris Hile and Chad Phelps picked up the wins.
Robbie Wilson and Ahnna Parkhurst brought the field down to the green for the Go Nuclear Late Model Series Pit Stop Convenience Stores 50 with Parkhurst grabbing the early advantage.
While Parkhurst was dealing with lapped traffic, it allowed Sandercock to reel in and pass Parkhurst to be scored the new leader on lap-14.
The first yellow waved on lap-25 to tighten up the field after Sandercock held a 2.2 seconds lead.
With 30-laps in the record books Sandercock held a ten-car length advantage over a close battle between Fleming and Cook with Belden and Jason Parkhurst showing on the scoring tower.
After a couple cautions on lap-32 and lap-35 Sandercock and Fleming were putting on a show, running bumper to bumper and side by side with Cook not far behind ready to pounce on any mistake by the top two.
With 10-laps to go Sandercock and Fleming would swap the lead back and forth with neither racer gaining a big advantage as back markers would start to play a role in the race.
On lap-44 Fleming got caught behind a lapped car, letting Sandercock shoot back into the lead. Once Fleming cleared the lapped traffic he was able to retake the lead on lap-47.
Lap-48 was the difference in the race. As Fleming and Sandercock came under the start-finish line they tried to split two lapped cars in a four-wide move. In just a racing incident contact was made with Fleming’s car by a lapped car sending Fleming around and doing serious damage to the rear of his car, ending his run for the win.
When the green came back out Sandercock was first under the checkers for his second straight Outlaw 200 Weekend Late Model win.
In the TUSA Mod Lite Doug Cooper Memorial 36 the winner was in doubt until the checkers in close, bumper-to-bumper and side-by-side racing at the front of the field. Justin Williams, Jeff May and Zack Babcock all lead laps. When the checkers waved it was Jeff May picking up the victory. Zack Babcock finished an impressive second with a damaged right front on his car. Casey Sykes, Justin Williams and Brian Meyers finished third through fifth.
The E&V Energy Novice Sportsman ran a pair of 20-lap features.
In the first feature Greg Henry lead the opening 7-laps before DJ Forbes took the top spot. Once in the lead Forbes was able to pull away late for the victory. Greg Henry, Remington Hamm, Tyler Rogers and Wesley Hayes finished second through fifth.
In the second 20-lap feature Michael-Wagner Fitzgerald grabbed lead on the opening lap and looked to run away and hide. Late in the race Fitzgerald would have to hold off serious pressure from Chris Bonoffski for the win. Robert Gage, Kearra Backus and Jake Davis finished third though fifth.
A strong field of 4-Cylinders showed up for the 20-lap JB Logging & Firewood 20-lap feature. The battle inside the top-five was tight throughout the entire race with Canadian Corbin Millar picking up the narrow win over a hard-charging Quinn Wallis. Ray Bechler, Chuck Monica and Justin Buske finished third through fifth.
