Points update & more

With the Sumer racing season complete and the Fall big events left on the Schedule. It is time to see the official top 10 in points OFFICIAL TOUR POINTS AS OF SEPTEMBER 27TH
1 AARON BOWES 64 NAZARETH 2519 Leader 2 RICHIE HITZLER 9 2293 -226 3 MICHAEL BURROWS 55 ANNVILLE PA 2252 -267 4 JONATHAN PEPE 17,08V OREFIELD PA 2055 -464 5 JOSH PEPE 27 NAZARETH PA 2031 -488 6 IAN WILLIAMSON 10 1820 -699 7 JONATHAN JOSKO (R) 08 TELFORD 1790 -729 8 KAMDIN MABY 56K LANESBORO 1771 -748 9 ABBEY PRICE 9A 1723 -796 10 NATHAN BRINKER 14N NAZARETH 1676 -843

Abbey Price sits in the 9th Position. The Season had been good so far for the young driver in the X-cel 600 Modified Tour Series on the tough North East Dirt Circuit. A few mechanical problems led to DNF”s that caused Abbey to drop back in the points chase a few times this season. Abbey was not able to attend a tour race two weeks ago due to a Family Function. With the Five Mile Point tour race the 9a team will be looking to move up in points.

Most teams will be glad when the Season is over but not Abbey and the 9a team. The Talented racer will be in the hunt for more top finishes before the 2014 season draws to an End. Don’t Forget some of our sponsors that keep Abbey Price on the dirt tracks.

Linda Speedway Results Sept 28,2014

Abbey 2014 Wow what a night that night at the Leon Grubber memorial race at Linda’s Speedway.

Abbey was surprised by a whole trailer load of friends and family including her mom. This had Abbey all amped up and driving hard.

Time trials did not go as well as planned. 34 cars and we timed 24. Last race at Linda’s we discovered the perfect setup for the feature. Now my note book will also read to loose for time trials.

Starting 7 of 10 in heat. 9a drove to staging area but would not fire for heat race. No start for us, fuel relay bad. Now Abbey really has pressure with showing her family and friends what she does.

Rich hitzler along with half the pits worked to get that problem solved. Thank you

Abbey rolls out in last chance consi 18th of 18. 12 laps top 8 move on. She had a provisional in her back pocket to move on. I told her her options, take green and pull off, run some laps and pull off or get better than 8 to improve her starting position as you are points racing sitting in the top 10 overall.

Abbey ran hard in consi Abbey was in 6th passing for 5th when she got her car I. The marbles on the last lap and lost just enough positions and needed to use her provisional anyway.

Started the feature in 26th. Ran a great race. Abbey was in 10th with under 5 to go. Multiple restarts shuffled her to a respectable 12th place finish. She was exhausted after the race and left everything on the track. 62 laps at Linda’s in a short period of time takes heart. Good job Abbey you made everyone proud!!

Thunder Mountain Speeway results

Abbey and the 9a race team headed to the Thunder Mountain Speedway on Sunday night. A great run in the heat race set Abbey up for the feature event. The track did not change in the direction Chip wanted. Setting up the car for dry slick conditions never happened. Instead a tacky smooth track presented Abbey with a challenge. In the feature at the drop of the green there was a tangle. Abbey had to start in the back. Once the green came out Abbey charged her way to the front. Late in the feature Abbey spun and went to the rear again. This time Abbey charged her way towards the front again but ran out of time.  She was passing 1-2 cars a lap as the checkered waived. The results do not show it was a fun productive night. Abbey wants to Thank all  her fans , sponsors and family for the support this season.

The 9a race team of Abbey and Chip Price towed up to the 1-88 Speedway Friday night for the X-cel 600 Modified tour race. The car went out in the heat race will a gearing package, Chip wanted to try out on  the Dirt oval. The car handle great on the dirt track but the experiment lead to interesting results.  So some new notes to were added  as, the potent 600 modified racer, never got the chance to move forward in the heat race.

Come feature time the NJ based race team would start the feature in 15th place. Changes had been made to make the 9a competitive in the main event.. Abbey started in the 15th position and was eager for the race to begin. The green flag was dropped and Abbey was on the move, passing one car by another Abbey moved into 6th position and was on the hunt for a top 5 finish.

Suddenly a car in front spun out, and Abbey was collected in the skirmish. The yellow drop and the 9a racer had a chain issue causing the night to come to an  end.  The 9a was inspected in the pits and needs roof and bumper repairs. The weekend is not lost ! Chip was going to fix the body and bumpers today!

The 9a will be staying in New York to run the Thunder Mountain Speedway this Sunday night ! Congratulations to Aaron Bowes on your Win last night at the I-88 Speedway.

Upward Swing: Mike Clapperton Reaches High On Roller-Coaster Season, Wins Second Thunder Mountain Speedway Modified Feature Of 2014; Leet, Underwood, Green, Eastman, Morse, Sinsabaugh & Applebee Also Visit Victory Lane As 104 Cars Fill Pit Area

CENTER LISLE, NY – Mike Clapperton’s roller-coaster 2014 season took an upward swing on Saturday night at Thunder Mountain Speedway.

Clapperton, of Sidney, N.Y., won his second big-block/small-block Modified main – and first since May 31 – at the Center Lisle, N.Y., three-eighths-mile oval in an exciting 30-lap main event. The 52-year-old driver started from the pole, dropped back to third, and rode the outside lane back to the lead en route to a $1,200 payday for his self-owned No. M16 team.

A large crowd filled Thunder Mountain’s concrete grandstands with 104 race cars jamming the pit area.

“It’s been an up-and-down year for us,” Clapperton said. “We’ve been having trouble here the last month or so. That’s why we were starting on the pole. It’s good to race clean, side-by-side, like we did tonight.”

Clapperton led the opening six laps of the main before Billy Spoonhower, who started fourth, powered off the top groove on a double-file restart to take command. Modified rookie Chris Stull followed into second.

The lead trio remained in tight formation, lap after lap, with Spoonhower occupying the middle lane, Stull working down low, and Clapperton rim-riding.

At lap 15, the top-three drivers fanned out three-wide at the exit of turn two. Stull emerged with the top spot and Clapperton relegated Spoonhower to third. Point leader Brent Wilcox, who started eighth, closed in as he broke free from traffic.

Working the high lane, Clapperton edged ahead of Stull on the 18th lap. However, running wheel-to-wheel, Clapperton didn’t gain sole possession of the top spot until the 25th lap.

“Once I got heat in the tires and found bite up high, we got rolling really good,” Clapperton said.

Stull, of Cortland, N.Y., registered a season-best runner-up finish, followed by Binghamton, N.Y.’s Wilcox. Spoonhower, of Berkshire, N.Y., settled for fourth and seventh-starter Brian Malcolm of Lake Ariel, Pa., completed the front five.

Eric Leet won his second 20-lap Sportsman main of the season in impressive fashion for a $700 payday. The Marathon, N.Y., driver started fifth and worked the extreme inside lane en route to the front. Leet cleared point leader Billy Spoonhower at the halfway mark and was never headed.

Spoonhower, who led laps 3-9, settled for second. Brothers Chris and Kevin Jordan and rookie Geordie Decker completed the front five.

Joshua Underwood of Berkshire, N.Y., capitalized on a late-race tangle involving the leaders and drove to his first-ever win in the 12-lap Rookie Sportsman main event.

Butch Green of Newark Valley, N.Y., picked up the ride in the second Steven Deinhardt No. 73 Street Stock and parked it in Victory Lane following the 20-lap main. He earned $500 courtesy of Shadow Landd Auto Body. Green started eighth and took over the lead on lap five with an inside pass on Daryl Krebs.

Green survived a final yellow on lap 17 to hold off his teammate, point leader Deinhardt, who started 15th. Jonathan Carpenter, driving his own No. J12, finished third, followed by Krebs and Tom Savercool.
