FULTON, NY – Charlie Sandercock from Trenton, Ontario won his third straight Pit Stop Convenience Stores NLMA Late Model championship 50 Friday night at the Fulton Speedway 33rd Annual SUNY Canton Outlaw 200 Weekend.
 
Sandercock who started 11th in the feature had a tight battle up front with Chad Homan finally making the winning pass on lap 38 and after that he would out-distance Homan for the win.
 
What made his win impressive wasn’t that it was his third straight win in the event. The weekend prior Sandercock broke his foot and didn’t know if he would be able to drive. His race team set him up a hand-control throttle and the way he raced you wouldn’t have known until he reached victory lane.
 
Other winners on night #1 were Michael Wagner-Fitzgerald (E&V Energy Novice Sportsman) Doug Williams (Dig Safely New York Mod Lites) and Chris Bonoffski (JB Logging & Firewood 4-Cylinders).
 
Almost 100 Sportsman ran 10 heat races and two of the five consolations (final three moved to Saturday) to try and earn a starting spot in Saturday’s $2,500-to-win Industrial Tire of CNY Sportsman Shootout 50.
 
Forty-four Modifieds took advantage of four 15-lap qualifiers with the winners earning 17th through 20th starting spots in Saturday’s Modified Outlaw 200. Those winners can improve their starting positions during Saturday qualifying.
 
Jimmie Johnson would take advantage of his front row redraw spot and jump out to an early 10-car advantage in the Pit Stop Convenience Store NLMA Late Model 50 while cars behind him were two and three-wide looking for any advantage in the early going.
 
With 10 laps showing on the scoring tower, Johnson, Chad Homan, Sam Pinancchio, and Jason Parkhurst ran in a tight pack battling for top-five positions.
 
Between lap 13 and lap 15 Johnson and Homan were putting on a show, swapping the lead back and forth all around the speedway.
 
On lap 20 Homan and Sandercock were in a two-car breakaway at the front of the field racing bumper-to-bumper and side-by-side in and out of lapped traffic. Pinancchio, Parkhurst and Dale Caswell ran in close quarters for third through fifth.
 
A yellow on lap 24 would erase the advantage Homan had, putting lap cars between himself and Sandercock.
 
With 20 laps to go, Homan and Sandercock were still in a two-car slugfest for the lead with Parkhurst, Kevan Cook and Caswell showing third through fifth.
 
Disaster almost struck for Homan on lap 36 when a lapped car spun in front of him in turns 3 & 4 with Homan missing the car by inches to bring out the yellow.
 
When the race went back to green it would take Sandercock two laps to drive by Homan and into the lead. Once out front Sandercock out-distanced Homan to the checkers. Dale Caswell, Jason Parkhurst and Kevan Cook finished third through fifth.
 
In the 20-lap E&V Energy Novice Sportsman Championship Michael Wagner-Fitzgerald and Kyle Hulsizer swapped the lead back and forth in the early laps.
 
Yellows late in the going on lap 13 and lap 18 would give the field one last shot at Fitzgerald for the win. In the end Fitzgerald would out-run Richard Murtaugh to the checkers. Jake Davis, Phil Desormeau and Quinn Wallis finished third through fifth.
 
Tracey Fritter would take the lead at the drop of the green in the 25-lap Dig Safely New Mod Lite Championship feature and looked to run away and hide in the early going.
 
Fritter would hold off all challengers until a yellow and restart on lap 20 that would see Doug Williams drive into the lead and go on to the win. Tracey Fritter, Mike Mullen, Paul Klager and  Joe Garafolo finished second through fifth.
 
Chris Bonoffski dominated the 25-lap JB Logging & Firewood 4-Cylinder open. The only thing that slowed him down throughout the race was cautions and restarts. Donte Mancuso, Nate Powers, Quinn Wallis and Chuck Powelczyk finished second through fifth.
