Dan Marsden Tops Record Kart Count to Claim $2,000 Octoberfest 40 Title at Weedsport

WEEDSPORT, NY (October 19, 2020) – Weedsport Kartway welcomed 366 weekend entries through its gates over the weekend with Dan Marsden claiming the top prize of $2,000 by winning the third annual Octoberfest 40 in the headline PRO Clone 360 division.

Marsden bested a field of 33 PRO Clone 360 entries to earn the Sunday finale over Jon Keister, Quentin Graham, Josh Ostrander and Chris Pier.

Weedsport track record holder, Jared John, set fast time for the 40-lap affair, but would have to start scratch in the main event following an engine change earlier in the day. The scratch start by John would put Jon Keister on the pole position with Ostrander, Marsden and Jamie Shutts just behind.

Early on Ostrander seemed poised for the lead, but would get crossed up in a bid for the point and would have to restart at the tail of the field. Following a restart, Keister would lead Marsden and Shutts, before Marsden made a move for the top spot in his No. 81.

Marsden, Keister and Shutts were the karts to beat early on as defending champion Jeremy Tuttle, Quentin Graham, Chris Natoli, Pier, Dimm, John and Ostrander began to race their way through the pack.

As the race wore on into the late stages it became evident that the battle for the $2,000 prize would come down to Marsden and Keister as Shutts, Tuttle and Natoli would all run into issues with under 10-laps remaining.

Meanwhile Ostrander had raced his way back into the top five positions as Keister gave all he could to Marsden in a race for the win. But when all was said and done, it was Marsden crossing the line first ahead of Keister, Graham, Ostrander, Pier, Dimm, John, Trent Curtis, David Hackett Jr., and Ryan Edwards.

While Tuttle was not able to defend his Octoberfest 40 crown from 2019, he did manage to drive to victory in Saturday night’s $1,000 to win Octoberfest 30. Tuttle topped Richard Murtaugh, Keister, Shutts and Hackett for the PRO Clone 360 prelim win.

Other PRO winners on the weekend included Seth Whitney in PRO Blue Clone and PRO Jr. Unrestricted, as well as Matt Chavis, who drove to the win in Sunday’s PRO Clone Super Heavy main event.

A total of 27 racers took on the third annual Burris Racing Tire NYS Clone Invitational on Saturday with Marsden again finishing on top to win another $500. Marsden edged 2018 Invitational champion, Tuttle, for the win head of Tanner Emmons, Hackett, Murtaugh, Dan Kapuscinski, Chavis, Sabrina Palmer, TJ Clayton and Madison Myers.

Two full days of points racing was also on the card through the weekend, with track champions being declared in all classes.

Levi Herriven won both Jr. Red Clone mains on the weekend to earn the Jr. Red Clone track championship over Wyatt Mullen. Herriven had four wins on the season, while Mullen earned one.

Connor Crane swept Jr. Green Clone for the weekend, but Ayden Silvernail is the 2020 Weedsport track champion. Silvernail scored two wins and three second place finishes this season.

Chris Duclos and Parker Allen split Jr. Purple Clone main events over the weekend, with Allen going on to claim the track championship. Allen won four of five main events at Weedsport this season.

Chayton Young, Lane Snook and Lathan Good all won Jr. Blue Clone mains during Octoberfest. However, Seth Whitney would go on to claim the Jr. Blue track title with finishes of second and fifth.

Logan Crisafulli continued his winning ways in Jr. Unrestricted, earning wins on Saturday and Sunday. Crisafulli’s sweep of the weekend was more than enough to earn the Jr. Unrestricted track championship.

Tyler Brown and Owen Dimm won the Clone Light points main events, but the championship battle was to be decided between Thomas Montgomery and Richard Murtaugh. Each scored two top five finishes on the weekend, resulting in a tie of 449-points after five events. The championship tie breaker goes to whichever driver had the most wins on the season and Montgomery’s lone win on opening day was enough to earn the title over Murtaugh.

Despite failing short in Clone Light, Murtaugh dominated Clone Heavy all season long to earn the Weedsport championship over Chris Pier and Nick McGill. Clone Heavy points wins on the weekend went to John and Keister.

For the second year in a row, McGill is the Weedsport track champion in Clone Super Heavy. Octoberfest points wins went to John on Saturday and Chavis on Sunday.
