DIRT TRACK DIGEST PRESENTS THE BILL AG MEMORIAL ONE-ON-ONE MODIFIED MATCH RACES THIS SATURDAY AT FONDA

By: Ron Szczerba

Fonda, NY – This Saturday June 19 at the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway a special night honoring the late Bill Anagnostopulos will take place as the current top five in Sunoco Modified points will compete in the Bill Ag One-On-One Match Races with a lot of money on the line from various sponsors going to the drivers competing in the event.

This event is held in honor of the late Bill Anagnostopulos who was the owner of the Winners Circle, which is a restaurant in Fonda, NY that is located just around the corner from the Fonda Speedway. Bill was a great friend to racing and sponsored many drivers at the speedway through the years. On a typical Saturday evening, he would get away from the restaurant to attend the races at Fonda where he had many friends in both the pit area and the grandstands.

“It’s an honor for us at DTD to be involved with the annual “Bill Ag Elimination Race” at the Fonda Speedway each year,” a representative for the event recently said.

Typically, the one-on-one elimination race features the top five in Modified points plus a random driver selected from points positions 6-10.

Since there is a tie in the Sunoco Modified points top five, there will be no “Random Draw” for this year’s elimination event, so the drivers who will be competing in the Bill Ag One-On-One Match Races are Josh Hohenforst, Craig Hanson, Jack Lehner, Rocky Warner, Ronnie Johnson, and last week’s winner Mike Mahaney. Johnson and Mahaney are currently tied for the fifth position in the point standings following the June 12 racing program.

Should one of these drivers sweep all five rounds of this event, he will be walking away with in excess of $4,000 for just ten laps of racing! Dirt Track Digest and all the organizers of this event wish to say a special thank you to ALL the sponsors who have donated to the event now, and over the years as it has certainly become a “must see” event.

This will be the 6TH Bill Ag Memorial One-On-One Match Race run at Fonda with past winners including Bobby Varin in 2014, no event in 2015, Ronnie Johnson in 2016 & 2017, Tim Fuller in 2018, and Stewart Friesen in 2019 with no event held in 2020.

Some quotes from the previous winners of the event:

“This is a very special event honoring Bill from the Winners Circle,” Friesen said in the Fuccillo Automotive Group Mike Cole Victory Lane after his win in 2019. “This is a cool mid-summer special race that has become a big event so thanks to all the sponsors and the organizers for their efforts.”

“When Josh (Hohenforst) got lane choice for the last race I thought that I was in trouble,” Fuller said after his win in 2018. “I was real concerned because he is fast here at Fonda on a heavy track. This event is a little different, it has a lot of pizzazz, and racing needs more of that.”

All regular divisions will also be in action on Saturday, June 19 including the Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman, the Algonkin Motel Pro Stocks, the Montgomery County Office for Aging Limited Sportsman, and the Fonda Fair Four Cylinders. Starting time will be 7:00 p.m.

The infield Drive-In area will be open on Saturday, June 19 for the “Dirt Track Digest Night – Bill Ag Memorial One-On-One Match Races” along with all regular divisions and you can reserve your spot on the infield by going to the Drive-In reservation request: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSeeT6Vnd40XrI…/viewform

Reservations will be accepted in the order they are received, $60/parking spot – includes 1-4 attendees of any age (ATTENDEES MUST ARRIVE TOGETHER – NO EXCEPTIONS). Reservations will be accepted until Thursday, June 17th at 8:00 PM, unless SOLD OUT prior. Credit card payment is required prior to the event. No refunds.

MAHANEY WINS SECOND OF THE SEASON AT FONDA

By: Ron Szczerba

Fonda, NY – Two weeks ago during the Twin 22 lap events at Fonda, Mike Mahaney was involved in a wreck that demolished his Adirondack Auto #35. On Saturday evening at the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway he used the repaired race car to win his second feature of the season and the fifth of his career at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds facility.

“A couple of weeks ago this car was demolished here at Fonda,” Mahaney said in the Fuccillo Autoplex of Nelliston Mike Cole Memorial victory lane. “Thanks to my crew and everyone who helped get it back together”.

Other winners on Universal Warehouse/SLA Transport Night at Fonda were Cody Clark (Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman), Luke Horning (Algonkin Motel Pro Stocks), Taylor LaPlante (Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman), Wayne Russel Jr. (SOHC) and Slappy White (DOHC) in the Fonda Fair Four Cylinders.

The Mohawk Valley Vintage Dirt Modified Series (MVVDMS) were also on hand at Fonda with Jimmy Fugel (MVVDMS Antiques), Randy Delaney (MVVDMS Modifieds), Curtis Condon (MVVDMS Late Model), Stephen Denton (MVVDMS SPORTSMAN), and Mike Brown (MVVDMS Mystique) winning the feature events.

Saturday was also New York State Stock Car Association Night at Fonda with a first prize of $75 going to the first member of the organization to cross the finish line in each of the feature events and $50 to the second member of the organization to cross the finish line in each of the feature events.

Fonda Speedway NYSSCA representative Bonnie Mortensen presented the awards to the drivers along with NYSSCA Vice President Jann McGaffin, and Utica Rome Speedway NYSSCA representative John Keegan and Afton Speedway NYSSCA representative Jay Johnson.

Winning the NYSSCA awards in their respective divisions were Mike Mahaney and Craig Hanson (Sunoco Modifieds), Cody Clark and Addison Bowman (Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman), Luke Horning and Nick Stone (Algonkin Motel Pro Stocks), Taylor LaPlante and Clayton DuMond (Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman) and Slappy White and Wayne Russell Jr. (Fonda Fair Four Cylinders).

Special Thanks to LM Mason Contraction for the $300 bonus to the winner of the Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman feature along with the $100 bonus to the second and third place finishers. LM Mason Contracting is a sponsor on many of the race cars at the Fonda Speedway and we appreciate the support of both your sponsored drivers and the Fonda Speedway as well.

Special thanks also goes out to Todd Cipperly of the Farmers Insurance Cipperly Agency of Central Bridge, NY for the giveaways to the fans at intermission that were tossed from the flaggers stand by Race Director Denny Tillison and Ed Biittig Sr.

Congratulations to Mike from Broadalbin, NY who was the winner of the 50/50 which was worth $2099!

Chris Moore did the invocation followed by a beautiful singing of the National Anthem by Stephanie May.

The 30-lap Sunoco Modified feature began with JaMike Sowle and George Foley on the front row with Sowle taking the early lead. Mike Mahaney started the event on the outside of the second row in the fourth position but quickly moved into the second position at the completion of lap one after getting by Foley.

Ronnie Johnson and Adam McAuliffe also got by Foley for position while Mahaney closed in on Sowle for the lead. On lap five something broke on the right rear suspension of Sowle’s racecar dropping the right rear of the car and bringing out the caution flag with Mahaney taking over the lead.

The yellow was out again on the restart for McAuliffe who broke going down the backstretch with a single file restart ensuing because of two consecutive yellow flags with no laps completed.

As Mahaney continued to lead at the drop of the green flag, eighth place starter Craig Hanson was making his way to the front, going from fifth to third on the restart. Foley was one of the cars that Hanson passed but on the next lap Foley found the outside groove to his liking getting by both Hanson and Johnson for the second spot. At the halfway point in the event Mahaney was the race leader followed by Foley, Johnson, Hanson, and 11th place starter Rocky Warner.

Hanson got by Johnson on lap 19 for the third position and three laps later used a slide job pass in turn two to get by Foley for the second position. With five laps to go Hanson was closing in on Mahaney for the lead but couldn’t find a way by, trying both the inside and the outside grooves to get the job done.

At the drop of the checkered flag Mahaney went on to his second win of the season in the Adirondack Auto, George Huttig owned #35 followed by Hanson, Warner, Johnson, and Foley.

“This is way better winning two races instead of one in the same season,” Mahaney told Mimi Lazzaro in victory lane. “The top was the fast way around the track tonight, I had some practice last week on the outside on the slick track getting closer to the wall and tonight I had more practice doing it, but I’ve still got some room to go out further.”

“My car was good on the top but that was where the 35 (Mahaney) was running,” Hanson said in victory lane as he received the NYSSCA award for finishing second as a member of the organization. “I tried something different going to the inside but maybe I should have stayed on the outside on Mike’s rear bumper in the closing laps.”

The 25-lap Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman feature was a lead swapping affair between four drivers with six lead changes deciding the feature winner. It all began with Brett Mortensen the early race leader from his pole position start while Brendan Gibbons started on the outside pole and kept Mortensen in his sights. On lap two, Gibbons took over the lead with a pass on the inside of turn three, but Mortensen never let Gibbons get away and took the lead back on lap four.

Addison Bowman started the event in the seventh position but quickly moved to the front, taking the second position away from Gibbons on a lap five restart. Bowman got past Mortensen for the lead on lap seven with 10th place starter Cody Clark also getting by Mortensen for the second position.

Clark made a three wide move to get by both a lap car and Bowman for the lead on lap 18 but it only lasted for one lap as Bowman took the lead back on lap 19. A lap car came into play again on lap 21 when the leader Bowman was blocked by a lap car allowing Clark to get by for the lead and the win, his first win of the 2021 season and the 10th of his career at Fonda in the Upstate Motorsports #4 DKM.

Bowman finished second followed by 12th place starter Chad Edwards, sixth place starter Tim Dwyer, and 15th place starter Mark Mortensen with Gibbons and Brett Mortensen sixth and seventh, respectively.

“The last few weeks I finished second but just couldn’t get the job done,” Clark said in victory lane. “Tonight, I was able to get the win, and this is definitely a confidence booster for me.”

Event number three in the American Racer/Lias Tire Super Six Series paying $1,000 to win for the Algonkin Pro Stocks was another lead changing event with three lead changes among four different drivers starting with Shane Playford who led from his pole position start at the drop of the green flag.

Playford held the top spot until lap four when Jim Normoyle took over the race lead while outside pole position starter Kyle Hoard was close behind Playford in third. Hoard made a move from third to first on lap six to take over the lead in the event while 10th place starter Luke Horning and 12th place starter Nick Stone made their way to the front.

Horning took the lead away from Hoard on lap eight with a move on the inside of turn two with Stone also getting by Hoard four laps later for the second spot. The race stayed green the rest of the way and Horning was never seriously challenged as he went on to his second win of the season and the 23rd of his career in the division in the West End Towing & Repair #2H.

Stone, Hoard, seventh place starter Ivan Joslin, and eighth place starter Josh Coonradt completed the top five.

“I wanted to run the top, but I was trying to give it enough time to come in before going up there,” Horning said in victory lane. “Once I got up there, I just kept it to the floor after that.”

Jonathan Feagles led the first two laps in the Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman feature while third place starter Taylor LaPlante was in the second position by lap two. One lap later LaPlante took the lead away from Feagles and led the remaining laps for his second win of the 2021 season and the second of his career at Fonda in the gCrete 3D Printers & Printing #33.

Seventh place starter Clayton DuMond, eighth place starter Stephen Gray, sixth place starter Jeremy Tyrrell, and fourth place starter Kyle Dingman completed the top five.

Slappy White led the final 10 laps in the Fonda Fair Four Cylinder feature to take the overall win in the DOHC category. Ken Hollenback was the SOHC winner but was disqualified in post-race inspection handing the SOHC win to Wayne Russell Jr. For White it was his fifth win of the 2021 season and fifth of his career at Fonda while for Russell Jr. it was his second win of the 2021 season and the third of his career at Fonda.

Next week at Fonda will be Dirt Track Digest (DTD) Night with all divisions in action along with the Bill Ag Memorial One on One Match Races for the top five in Sunoco Modified points. Starting time will be 7:00 p.m.

12th TO FIRST FOR BOTH FRIESEN AND MORTENSEN AT FONDA

By: Ron Szczerba

Fonda, NY – 12th must have been the place to be at the start of the Sunoco Modified and Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman feature events at the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway on Saturday evening as both Stewart Friesen and Mark Mortensen took the feature wins in their respective divisions after starting from the twelfth position.

For Friesen it was his sixth win of the 2021 season at Fonda and the 74th of his career in the Sunoco Modified division as he currently sits fourth on the All-Time Win List in some very good company as the top three on the list are Jack Johnson with 149, Lou Lazzaro with 113, and Dave Lape with 99.

For Mortensen it was his first win of the 2021 season and the 24th of his career in the Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman division where he currently sits second on the All-Time Win List behind some good company as well with Rocky Warner top on the list with 25 victories.

Other winners at Fonda on Bill Lake Modular Homes Night at Fonda were Nick Stone (Algonkin Motel Pro Stocks), Clayton DuMond (Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman), Ken Hollenback (SOHC) and Kerrie Hollenback (DOHC) in Fonda Fair Four Cylinders, and Josh Flint (CRSA Sprints).

Congratulations to Lynn from Schenectady who was the winner of $2,373 in the 50/50 and special thanks to Todd Cipperly of the Farmers Insurance Cipperly Agency of Central Bridge, NY for the giveaways to the fans at intermission that were tossed from the flaggers stand by Race Director Denny Tillison and Ed Biittig Sr.

Madeline Downing performed a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem to start the racing program after the invocation given by Fonda Speedway announcer Chris Moore. Downing is a 2021 graduate of Northville Central School, graduating as Valedictorian.

Joe Kriss dropped the green flag on the front row of Brian Pessolano and George Foley with Foley the early race leader with fourth place starter Bobby Varin in second. Friesen started the event in the 12th position but by lap two he was already up to fifth. Using the outside groove or the “Stew Lane” as announcer Chris Moore referred to, Friesen moved up to the second position on lap three with a great move to get by Rocky Warner, Ronnie Johnson, and Varin.

One lap later on the outside of the backstretch, Friesen got by Foley for the lead, which he would never relinquish, at times holding a half track lead over his nearest competitor. Johnson took over the second position from Foley at the halfway point as Friesen continued to set a blistering pace in the lead with Warner, and Adam McAuliffe completing the top five.

The big lead that Friesen had built up was taken away on lap 19 when Pep Corradi slowed in turn two to bring out the caution with McAuliffe also forced to the pits while running fifth. Warner was the new second place car on the restart, with 11th place starter Mike Mahaney racing into the top five at that point.

One more yellow slowed the field with five laps to go when McAuliffe who restarted the race at the rear of the field on lap 19 spun in turn two while running 10th. Ninth place starter Craig Hanson made his way up to the fourth position by that point and while Friesen pulled away to yet another win the race between Hanson and Mahaney for fourth was the best race on the track.

At the checkered flag Friesen was the winner in the Halmar #44 Bicknell car followed in the top five by Warner, Johnson, Mahaney, and Hanson.

“I saw them putting water on the top of the track during intermission and we worked on setting the car up in order to get hooked up to the track,” Friesen told Mimi Lazzaro in the Fuccillo Autoplex of Nelliston in Memory of Mike Cole Victory Lane. “I was living on the top and I am really fortunate to have Fonda Speedway in my back yard, I love racing here.”

Jason Greco and Brett Mortensen started the 25-lap Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman feature on the front row with Greco taking the early lead. While Brett Mortensen was running a great race in the second position, his brother Mark Mortensen was using the same line around the speedway to get to the front after starting 12th, sitting in the sixth position by lap seven.

Greco was in lap traffic by lap 11 with Mark Mortensen continuing his march to the front, sitting in the third position by lap 16. One lap later the only yellow of the event was out for the lap car of Griffen Mansmith and Brett Mortensen who was collected when Mansmith tried to get off the track into the pit area and turned right in front of the field. Mark Mortensen was almost collected by the wreck as well but narrowly escaped by getting around the outside of both cars. Mansmith and Brett Mortensen were both done for the night at that point.

On the restart, Greco led through turn two until Mark Mortensen got a run on the outside to take over the lead by the time, they got to turn three on lap 18. Ninth place starter Cody Clark made a great move on the restart to get by Tony Farone and Chip Constantino into the third position and with three laps to go also got by Greco for the second position.

Mark Mortensen went on to the victory in the Jumpin’ Jack’s Drive-In of Scotia, Mohawk Honda sponsored #1M DKM car followed by Clark, Greco, Farone, and 15th place starter Chad Edwards.

“It’s been a crazy season,” Mortensen said in victory lane. “I’ve probably got the best car I’ve ever had, and I can’t screw that up so I’m pressuring myself to do better. Now I got the monkey off my back.”

Andy Graves led the first two laps in the Algonkin Pro Stock feature with eighth place starter and defending track champion Nick Stone up to second at the completion of lap two. Stone was utilizing the outside groove just as Friesen and Mortensen were and quickly moved in on Graves for the lead which he took over on lap three.

Another car on the move was 12th place starter Luke Horning who was second on lap four with Jason Morrison now third after also getting by Graves. On lap nine Horning was forced to the pit area with a flat tire possibly caused by a scrape to the wall in turn one as Horning was running way outside like Stone was. Horning replaced the flat tire and restarted in the 19th spot.

Another driver on the move was 10th place starter Josh Coonradt who was the new second place car on lap 10 after getting by Morrison. At the halfway point the top five consisted of Stone, Coonradt, Morrison, last weeks winner Kenny Gates who started 11th, and Graves.

As Stone pulled away to a big lead the driver to watch was Horning who quickly made his way back to the front after restarting in 19th on lap nine, as he was in the top five on lap 13. With three laps to go Horning got by Coonradt for the second position with the checkered flag flying over Stone who took his third win of the season and the 56th of his career in the division over Horning, Coonradt, Gates, and Morrison.

“There was a nice groove on the outside, but nobody was going up there to use it,” Stone said in victory lane. “So, I went up there and stayed there for the entire race. This car is owned by Todd Hoffman and his crew maintains it, I go to his shop to scale it on Saturday mornings and the car is always flawless and ready to race when I get there. My crew maintains my car and running two cars with double crews takes a lot of pressure off me.”

A childhood dream was realized in the CRSA Sprint car feature when Josh Flint took the victory for his first career win in any division at the Fonda Speedway. Flint started on the pole after winning his qualifying heat race, but it was by no means an easy win for Flint as he had to hold off a hard charging Jeff Trombley for the win.

Flint took the lead at the drop of the green flag with Chase Moran in second. Trombley and Mike Kiser made there way to the front after starting together in row four with Trombley in the third position by lap four while Kiser broke into the top five. Trombley and Kiser both got by Moran for the second and third positions on lap 11 with Flint now in lap traffic.

One caution flag slowed the field on lap 12 and on the restart, Kiser got by Trombley for the second position, but by the time the lap was completed Trombley had taken the spot back from Kiser. Trombley put constant pressure on Flint over the remaining laps, but Flint drove a great race to take the win followed in the top five by Trombley, Kiser, Moran, and JR Hurlburt.

“I earned that one,” Flint told good friend Mimi Lazzaro in victory lane. “Jeff (Trombley) was right there, and he is someone I respect and was happy to race with for this win. “I grew up here at Fonda, my grandfather used to bring me here as a kid to watch my father (Russ Flint) race. I was once asked if I were able to get a series championship or a win at Fonda which would I prefer. I definitely chose to win at Fonda.”

A little history about Josh’s father Russ Flint, he was the 320-Modified Track Champion at Fonda back in 1987 with one career win in that division. Russ was in victory lane with Josh on Saturday evening to celebrate his win saying, “there is nothing better than a win at Fonda, this is such a family sport.” Russ builds the motors that his son Josh uses in his Sprint car making it all even more special!

On a side not Russ Flint also found out on Saturday evening that he will be inducted into the Fonda Speedway Hall of Fame this year during ceremonies which will be held at the Fonda Speedway Museum later this year. Josh Flint has said that he was going to retire at the end of the 2021 season so will this win at Fonda change his mind? We will all have to wait to find out.

Jonathan Feagles led the first four laps of the 15-lap Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman feature until seventh place starter Clayton DuMond took over the lead on lap five. DuMond went on to a back-to-back win after winning last week in the DKM #314 car followed in the top five by eighth place starter Jeremy Tyrrell, fifth place starter Carter Gibbons, sixth place starter Taylor LaPlante, and Kyle Dingman.

Kerrie Hollenback led the final 10 laps in the 12-lap Fonda Fair Four Cylinder feature, taking the overall win in the event as a DOHC. John Napoli finished second overall with the first SOHC car finishing third with Kerrie’s brother Ken Hollenback getting the win as a SOHC. Slappy White and Tyler White completed the top five.

Next week June 12 at the Fonda Speedway, School House Pools Night presents all regular divisions in action along with the Mohawk Valley Vintage Dirt Modifieds. The Algonkin Pro Stocks will compete in the American Racer/Lias Tire Super Six Series Event No. 3 paying $1,000 to win.

It will also be New York State Stock Car Association Night (NYSSCA) Night next Saturday with monetary awards handed out by the organization for the top two finishers in each division who are NYSSCA members. Starting time will be 7:00 p.m.

Since 1953, the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway has hosted the best in stock car racing. Under the management of BD Motorsports Media LLC, the speedway will operate weekly on Saturday nights from April through August plus several special events. Fonda Speedway is located on the Montgomery County Fairgrounds off New York State Thruway Exit No. 28 at 21 S. Bridge Street Fonda, NY 12068.

FRIESEN WINS BOTH TWIN 22’S ON DAVE LAPE TRIBUTE NIGHT AT FONDA

By: Ron Szczerba

Fonda, NY – Every race night at the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway is special. It means so much to win there, to even race there. Saturday evening was even more special as one of the legendary drivers at the speedway was honored with a special tribute night. As the winner of both Twin 22 lap Sunoco Modified features said in victory lane “the track was challenging tonight, it had some character.”

Dave Lape Tribute Night started out on Saturday afternoon at the Fonda Speedway Hall of Fame & Museum when a special ceremony was held to honor the driver from Canajoharie, NY. A whose who list of people were on hand to honor Lape including the founder of DIRT Motorsports Glenn Donnelly who came all the way to Fonda from his home in Florida, Shane Andrews, Lew Boyd, Dick Berggren, Adam Fusco who is the son of Lape’s great friend the late Andy Fusco, Matt Noles, many of Lape’s former crew members, business partners, and friends.

When the final checkered flag flew, Sprakers, NY driver Stewart Friesen continued his dominance at Fonda with wins in both feature events which were worth $1,722 to win each one thanks to a $220 bonus for both events from one of Lape’s business partners back in the day of Champ Car, Jim Senzio of Fulton County Electrical & Electronics. The wins for Friesen were the 72nd and 73rd of his career at the “Track of Champions”.

Senzio of Fulton County Electrical & Electronics also sponsored a $100 bonus for the 10th place finisher in both Sunoco Modified feature events along with a $122 bonus to each of the winners in the Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman and Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman features plus a $50 bonus to the 10th place finishers in both of those feature events.

The bonuses continued this special night in each of the Sunoco Modified heat race events as Hazer’s World donated $122 to each of the winners.

In victory lane after the first of two Twin 22-lap features Friesen was surprised when Lape along with his wife Jackie and daughter Jessica joined him in victory lane to celebrate his win. “That was pretty wild,” Friesen said in the Fuccillo Autoplex of Nelliston Mike Cole Memorial Victory Lane after the win. “Dave Lape is one of my hero’s and my friend, he used to come to Ransomville to race back when my family owned the speedway.”

“I was actually hoping for a rerack a little sooner,” Friesen continued to say after taking the lead after a restart on lap 15. “I loosened it up for this feature and found the outside but for the second feature we’re gonna have to tighten it up.”

Other winners on M.W. Roosevelt & Son/Roosevelt’s Towing & Recovery Night at Fonda were Tucker O’Connor (Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman), Kenny Gates (Algonkin Motel Pro Stocks), Clayton DuMond (Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman), Ken Hollenback (SOHC) and Tyler White (DOHC) in the Fonda Fair 4-Cylinders.

The evenings sponsor M.W. Roosevelt & Son/Roosevelt’s Towing & Recovery was a sponsor on Dave Lape’s race cars from the beginning of his career right until up until the end.

Sara Porter from Cobleskill, NY sang the National Anthem as the Fonda Speedway celebrated Memorial Day weekend and congratulations to the winner of the 50/50 which was worth $2,388!

The first 22-lap event which was led in the parade lap by one of Dave Lape’s former race cars was led by pole position starter David Schilling at the start with the red flag out shortly after lap one was completed for Steve Akers who got up and over in turn one with other cars also piling in. Nobody was injured in the wreck.

The field was slowed again by a caution on the second lap with Schilling continuing to lead when the race restarted with fifth place starter Jack Lehner the new second place car on lap four. Schilling led at the halfway point in the event followed in the top five Lehner, Josh Hohenforst, 12th place starter Stewart Friesen, and Jessica Friesen.

When JaMike Sowle slowed in between turns three and four on lap 13 it brought out the caution and, on the restart, Stewart Friesen was able to get by both Hohenforst and Lehner for the second spot. One lap later Stewart Friesen went by Schilling on the outside like he was standing still and led the remaining laps for the victory over Lehner, Schilling, Hohenforst, and 11th place starter Bobby Varin.

An invert of four saw Hohenforst and Schilling on the front row for the second Sunoco Modified 22-lap event with Schilling leading at the drop of the green flag. By lap four, fourth place starter Stewart Friesen got by both Hohenforst and Lehner for the second position with the yellow out on lap 11 for Bobby Varin after something broke in the left rear of his racecar.

Schilling chose the inside for the restart with Stewart Friesen on the outside and going into turn four to the start, Schilling pushed Friesen out towards the wall and held the lead going into turn one while Friesen dropped to third. Exiting turn two Friesen made a three-wide move by both Hohenforst and Schilling to take the lead and led the remaining laps for yet another victory. Lehner, 28th place starter Rocky Warner, Hohenforst, and Schilling completed the top five.

“I couldn’t catch the 20 (Schilling), he was running the same line as I was,” Stewart Friesen said in victory lane. “I think he over thought the restart, ran me up to the wall, and I’ll remember that for the next time.”

The Mortensen brothers Brett and Mark started the 25-lap Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman on the front row after both won their respective heat races. Mark was the race leader when the first of five yellow flags flew in the event at the completion of lap one. On lap three, eighth place starter Tucker O’Connor moved quickly up to the third position with another yellow flag out on lap four.

On the restart, O’Connor took the lead and pulled away with the yellow out again on lap seven for Tim Hartman Jr. who slowed in turn two for a flat tire. Hartman went to the hot pit for a new tire and returned to the rear of the field. O’Connor led through two more caution periods and went on to his first career win in the division followed by Mark Mortensen, 10th place starter Cody Clark, Hartman Jr., and fifth place starter Aaron Burton.

“It finally happened,” O’Connor told Mimi Lazzaro in victory lane about the win. “We had a good starting spot and just tried to stay out of the holes.”

The 20-lap Algonkin Motel Pro Stock feature saw five lead changes between five different drivers starting with outside pole position starter Andy Graves taking the lead at the drop of the green flag. When Graves slowed in turn two while leading it brought out the caution flag with Steve Cosselman taking over the lead on the restart. Chuck Dumblewski started the event in the sixth position but moved quickly to the front and was the new race leader on lap seven after getting around Cosselman on the outside of turn four.

Another driver who moved quickly to the front was last week’s winner Luke Horning who started the event in the 12th position but was running in the second spot by lap eight. One lap later the inside of turn three, Horning passed Dumblewski on the inside of turn three for the lead but that only lasted for one lap as Horning drove to the infield on the backstretch with mechanical issues handing the lead back to Dumblewski.

Seventh place starter Kenny Gates was the new second place car by lap 10 when he was side by side with Dumblewski for the lead. Dumblewski held on to the lead for one lap before Gates took over the lead and led the remaining laps for his All-Time Win List leading 84th career win and his first of 2021 followed by Dumblewski, Cosselman, 10th place starter Frank Hoard Jr., and 16th place starter Bill Knapp.

“This feels fantastic,” Gates said referring to his first win since September of 2019. “The car has been good, and we’ve been running top five and knocking on the door, tonight we finally knocked the door in.”

Bill Port led the first five laps in the 15-lap Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman feature until fourth place starter Clayton DuMond took the lead on lap six on the inside of turn two. DuMond went on to his first career win at Fonda over fifth place starter Carter Gibbons, ninth place starter Kyle Dingman, eighth place starter Jeremy Tyrrell, and third place starter John Young.

Tyler White (DOHC) led the last two laps in the 12-lap Fonda Fair 4-Cylinder feature to take the overall win with Ken Hollenback finishing second to take the win in the (SOHC) class. Slappy White, Kerrie Hollenback, and John Napoli completed the top five.
