The Sunoco New York Super Stocks by Insinger Performance found themselves on the card for
the evening at Wyoming County International Speedway. Twenty three cars and drivers would
sign in and run heats for their feature starting positions.
The #40 of Jason Dinzler and the #5 of Sam Rotunda would find themselves on the front row
with some stiff competition right behind them just waiting to get the chance to pounce. Jason
Dinzler would pull out to the front and take the early lead with the #91 of Dylan Bancroft falling
into second right behind him however on lap 8 caution would fly for the #78 of Robert Fink and
the #5 of Sam Rotunda who came together on the backstretch and ended up setting against the
wall. Unfortunately Dylan Bancroft would be forced to give up his second place running position
and retire to the pits.
That would put Chris Vogler who had been knocking at the back door of the #91 of Bancroft to
the outside pole for the restart. Vogler would take the lead and pull out in front with a
comfortable lead until the #15 of Nick Robinson who had started 11th and been gaining fast on
the leaders took over the second spot from the #38 of Shaun Frarey in just 6 short laps.
Vogler and Robinson would spend several laps battling side by side for the lead with Vogler
coming across the start finish line just one orange bumper ahead every time. Caution would fly
on lap 23 and we would lose the #14 of Paul Flye. On the restart Nick Robinson in his #15
would get the jump on Vogler and cross the line one time before a red flag would bring the field
to a stop. The #13 of Aaron Higgins and the #17 of Amber VanOrden would get hooked
together in turn 4 and require track personnel to help get them into their pits.
The #75 of Zach Willis who had started 10th was gaining positions fast going from 8th to 2nd in
just 5 laps. Then with 7 to go a caution would fly for the #81 spun in turn 2. On the restart
Vogler would choose the top side yet again because he told us later that the car was “a rocket
on the outside”.
He and Willis would go side by side through turns one and two and the second row of #25 Joel
Gleason and #71 of Eric Hadley would get together and spin into the grass on the backstretch.
Somehow the entire field was able to avoid and make it through unscathed. The #51 of Chris
Vogler was able to pull out his first win since the Sandra Vogler Memorial in 2016 with #75 Zach
Willis and super stock rookie driver #46 of Cole Hicks coming in third.
Chris would say in post race interview that the “race was awesome” and that this is his track.
Zach would say “it’s not always who has the fastest car just the one who is in the lane that is
