Anthony Macri opens Tuscarora weekend with $8,000 preliminary score

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (September 8, 2022) – Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri remains perfect with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 at Port Royal Speedway in 2022, adding Thursday’s Tuscarora 50 preliminary event to his list of victories that already includes the Keith Kauffman Classic, as well as each night of the Bob Weikert Memorial. Thursday’s triumph, resulting in an $8,000 payday, was accomplished from the front row, battling by the “North Pole Nightmare” Bill Balog on lap eight and never looking back. The non-stop 30-lapper would give little trouble to the now seven-time All Star winner this season, weaving through waves of traffic with ease while keeping eventual runner-up, Danny Dietrich, at bay.Fading to third just after the initial start, then getting by Dietrich on lap five, Macri’s eventual winning move occurred through corners one and two, diving below Balog as the pair entered the corner then pulling ahead of the Anderson’s Maple Syrup No. 17 at the midpoint of the backstretch. Dietrich would actually follow Macri’s lead, also scooting by Balog just two circuits later.Dietrich did all he could to keep up with Macri’s pace, but his efforts fell short, falling to a margin of nearly four seconds.“I kinda wanted to play the beginning of that race a little calm and cool. Balog and Dietrich go out there pretty far…I figured they’re going for it, so I may as well go for it, too,” Macri said, driver of the J&S Classics, C&D Rigging, Valley Supply, No. 39M. “I pushed the issue a little bit harder…still driving smart and not blowing the tires off of it…here we are.”Tuscarora 50 competition will resume on Friday evening, September 9, with the annual Night Before the Tuscarora 50 awarding $10,000-to-win. The weekend’s headline event – the 55th running of the Tuscarora 50 – will go 50 laps in distance on Saturday night and will award a $60,000 payday. Originally paying $55,000, J&S Classics boosted the winner’s share to $60,000.For those who can not witness the All Star Circuit of Champions live and in person, FloRacing.com, the official media partner and broadcast provider of the All Stars, has you covered.
