WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Kyle Scisco continued an outstanding rookie season in the Snap On Tools Sportsman division by winning the 25 lap main event during Saturday’s “Pack the Track” festivities at Wall Stadium Speedway. The win was the third of the season for the Jackson resident.
Brick’s Mike Tidaback was the early leader of the contest before Howell’s Eric Lane took over on lap nine. Scisco soon completed his run to the front of the 17 car field and took the lead for good on a lap 13 restart. From that point on it was all Scisco although Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor was there to challenge in the closing laps. Jake Nelke of Manahawkin, Tidaback and Farmingdale’s Kenny Green wrapped up the top five.
“This season has been better than I ever thought it could be,” Scisco said. “I knew that my mom and dad would be big supporters of this and I knew that the guys working on this car were very talented. Still, to win three feature races is kind of overwhelming.”
Brian Osborn of Howell, who shares shop space with Scisco, made it a perfect night for the pair by winning the companion Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stock 25-lap feature race. Osborn battled his way through the pack to arrive in second spot by the halfway mark. Osborn soon throttled to the outside lane to take the lead but was forced to battle traffic in the final five laps before taking the checker flag. Early leader TJ Graves of Wall was the close runner-up, while Jackson’s Darren Burdge, Fred Cannock of Port Monmouth and Chris Silvestri completed the top five
Mike Montano of Fort Myers, Fla. took the lead on lap four and raced to victory in the O’Shea’s Auto Repair Factory Stock 25 lapper. Elliott Wohl of Beachwood, Union’s Joey Helberg and Manchester’s Scott Riggleman, all of whom snaked through a lap two crash on the backstretch, were second through fourth. Neil Rutt III was fifth.
Mike Alcaro of West Milford made it six wins in six tries by taking the victory in the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars 25-lapper. Early leader Richie Davidowitz was the runner-up and former champion Robert French of Howell was third. Nick Van Wickle of Edgewater Park and Vinny Troia of Browns Mills were fourth and fifth.
Harry Schaeffer of Carteret won is first feature in over a year in the 25-lapper for the Elite Maintenance Limited Late Models while Wall’s Cole Ormsbee was the second place finisher. Brian Doyle of Ronkonkoma, N.Y., Greg Miranda of Hazlet and Jackson’s Glen Conk completed the top five.
Chris Klotz of Bordentown won the scheduled 4 Cylinder car Demolition Derby while Norm Lane, Sr. of Howell won the crashfest for 8 Cylinder cars.
