Tim Sears Jr. Wins Fulton Speedway Modified Points Opener Saturday Night
FULTON, NY – (May 7, 2022) – Saturday night at the Fulton Speedway it was race number one for weekly battles for wins, top finishes, and ultimately drivers trying to put their name in the record book as a track champion at seasons end.
Winners on Compass Credit Union night were, Tim Sears Jr. (Modifieds). Andrew Buff (Sportsman). James Donaldson (Novice Sportsman) Casey Cunningham (Hobby Stocks).
Defending track champion Ron Davis III blasted from his front row starting spot to set the early pace in the 35-Lap Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modified feature while behind him the racing was two and three-wide.
By lap five Davis and Tim Sears Jr. were in a two-car breakaway battle for the top spot with Jeff Taylor, Corey Barker, and Todd Root showed in the top-five.
With ten laps showing on the scoring tower, Davis still led with Sears right in his tire tracks. Taylor, Barker, and Root were still locked in a close three-way battle for third through fifth.
Davis and Sears would put on a slugfest race for the lead in and out of heavy traffic with the winning move made on lap seventeen. Sears was able to use a back-marker as a pick trapping Davis behind the car as he blasted by to be scored the new leader.
The yellow flag would wave on lap 21 erasing Sears 2.6 lead giving the rest of the field a final shot to steal the away the win as the final laps started to click off the lap counter.
Over those final laps and no yellows nobody seriously challenged Tim Sears Jr. the rest of the way grabbing the popular victory with fans. Ron Davis III, Corey Barker, Todd Root, and Dave Marcuccilli completed the top-five.
The caution free 25-Lap DOT Foods DIRTcar Sportsman feature would see Austin Germino and Andrew Buff jump out to the top-two positions early setting a quick pace at the front of the field.
Germinio and Andrew Buff would run side by side for a number of laps with neither gaining much of advantage until Buff made the winning pass on lap eleven. Once out front there was no stopping Buff as he cruised to checkers. Emmett Waldron who ran with the leaders all race finished second. Amy Holland, Austin Germinio, and Teddy Clayton finished second through fifth.
Josh Fellows would lead the opening three laps of the E&V Energy Novice feature when the yellow would wave slowing the pace. James Donaldson took advantage of the caution and would take the lead on the restart. Once out-front Donaldson put on a clinic winning by six seconds at the checkers. Josh Fellows. Brianna Murtaugh, Justin Liechti, and Danny Allen finished second through fifth.
Casey Cunningham won his second straight 20-Lap Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux Hobby Stock feature in convincing fashion. Adam Hunt, Ron Hawker, and Dan Marsden completed the top-five.
