The evening started out with action packed heats from the NYSS with lots of action in the first heat including side by side racing for the 3rd and 4th positions being decided by the yellow flag flying for several spun cars around the race track. Chris Finocchario and his #8 ride would lead the
heat from wire to wire and secure himself a redraw spot that would put him on the outside pole of the feature race later in the evening. The second heat would see the #84 of Josh Schoonmaker take the checkered flag after starting in 5th place and being sent
pit side on lap two for inspection of a possible leakage problem. The third heat was won by the #91 of Dylan Bancroft who also took the race from the pole to the checkered flag with ease.
The three heat winners would redraw the first three starting spots for the feature and would ensure the enormous crowd on hand that a race was for sure to come. The #8 of Finocchario would take the early lead and would have a 1⁄4 of a straightaway lead by lap 3. The battle for second heating
up behind him between the #15 of Nick Robinson and the #90 of Nate Peckham with the #15 coming out on top on lap 6. Caution would fly on lap 7 as the #6 of Griffin Miller, the #77 of Jim Helt and the #12 of Matt Larrivee would all collect in turn three causing
some front end damage for the #77 and sending the #12 and the #6 pit side for the night. Under caution we were able to communicate with the #5 of Sam Rotunda who said of his competitors that “you can hear ‘em and you can feel ‘em” coming up alongside you while you are racing. Green flag would come back out and again Finocchario would take a large lead over the field with Nick Robinson being the only one able to even try to keep pace with him. Lap 13 we would see yellow fly again, this time for the #17 of Amber VanOrden sustaining some major rear end damage
after coming together with the #40 of Jason Dinzler. Nothing a little duct tape couldn’t fix for her though as she returned to bring up the rear of the field for the green a third time.
Finocchario would find himself in a pack all alone with the #15 of Nick Robinson giving it his all trying to get the drop on the #8 without success. Chris would take the checkered flag for the second time this year at Spencer Speedway saying in post race interview that the “car handled
the same- little bit better” and “it’s fun to win, that’s why we keep working hard.”
The Sunoco New York Super Stocks would like to send a big shout out to Aratari Auto Color & Detail for their sponsorship of the evening and can’t wait to see everyone back at Spencer Speedway in two weeks (June 29th NYSS Race #3 Rapid Express Night) for another great show.
