FULTON, NY – Over 200 race cars greeted race fans Friday for the first day of the 34th Annual Stadium International Trucks Outlaw 200 Weekend.
One of the best races of the weekend was in the Late Model division. This year’s Pit Stop Convenience Stores NLMA Late Model 50 didn’t disappoint.
Twenty-six Late Models took the green flag with Brandon Mowat and Kevan Cook leading the early laps until lap 7 when three-time defending event champion Charlie Sandercock blasted into the lead.
With 15 laps showing on the scoring tower, Sandercock was driving away from the field while Cook, Sam Pennacchio, Mowat and Andrew Hennessey were putting on a show for second through fifth.
In the late going when it looked like Charlie Sandercock would cruise to his fourth straight Outlaw Weekend victory, all that changed with late yellows.
Sandercock would first hold off team-mate Andrew Hennessey and then it looked like he would hold off Fulton Speedway Late Model track champion Chad Homan to write the winner’s check in his name. Someone forgot to tell Homan.
On the final lap, Homan got a run down the back straight and threw it into turns 3 & 4 as hard as he could with a textbook slide job in front of Sandercock exiting turn four. Sandercock was able to turn under Homan setting up a drag race to the checkers. It was so close a finish it took the the car transponders to call Homan the winner by 0.012 at the checkers. Andrew Hennessey, Jimmy Johnson and Steve Baldwin finished third through fifth.
Not to be outdone the U.S Air Force Mod Lites Championship had an edge of your seat finish.
The majority of the 25-lap feature saw great side-by-side racing throughout the field while out front Canadian Champion Jeff May and local favorite Clayton Brewer III were the show.
May and Brewer raced side by side, lap after lap, each leading at different spots on the speedway. On the final lap, like the Late Models, it came down to a drag race out of turn-four to the checkers as the went dead even under the flag stand. It took computer scoring to say Clayton Brewer III won by 0.002 of a second. Justin Williams, Mike Mullen and Tom Mackey finished third through fifth.
Richard Murtaugh defended home turf with a big victory in the E&V Energy Novice Sportsman out running Cody Manitta who also led the event. Payton Talbot, Josh VanTassell and Michael Grover finished third through fifth.
The most dominant race of the night was in the Fleet Repairs Truck & Trailer Repair four-cylinder open that had 30 cars signed into the pits.
In the 25-lap feature, it was total domination by Mike Stone from Campbell, NY. The only thing that slowed down Stone down was caution periods. Quinn Wallis, Jacob Dupra, Trey Palmer and Chuck Powelczyk finished second through fifth.
An All-Star field of Sportsman ran ten-heats and five-consolations setting up Saturday LCQ and then the lucrative Industrial Tire of CNY Sportsman Shootout 50.
Over 40 Modifieds ran four 15-lap qualifiers with the winners awarded 17-20 starting spots in 34th Annual Stadium International Trucks Modified Outlaw 200. Peter Britten, Stewart Friesen, Larry Wight and Ron Davis III took the wins.
This Saturday, October 12 will be the season finally at the Fulton Speedway.
