JEREMY WONDERLING AND MIKE KNIGHT AND CAPTURE PHOTO FINISH WINS ON FIRST NIGHT OF FALL CLASSIC AT FREEDOM MOTORSPORTS PARK

DEVELAN, NY…..It was a wild night of action for the BDK Construction Fall Classic at Freedom Motorsports park, highlighted by photo finishes in both the Super Late Model and Crate Late Model divisions on the first of two nights of racing.
The 30-lap Super Late Model feature saw Mike Knight and Ryan Montgomery battle for the early lead as they pulled away from Wyatt Scott.  Jason Genko and Garrett Mott batlled for fourth and fifth at the halfway point, with Genko getting the position on lap 16.  The event went caution free till lap 28 when Mott broke and hit the backstretch wall, which bunched the field for a final restart.  Montgomery had the lead on the white flag lap, but Knight rolled past coming off turn four on the final lap to snag the win.  Scott had an issue coming off turn four to the checkers, allowing Greg Oakes to slip past for third and Jason Genko got by Wyatt for fourth as they came across the line.
Super Late Model heats were won by Mike Knight and Ryan Montgomery.  The fast time in the Super Late Models in qualifying was set by Mike Knight at a 13.762.
In the 30-lap Duke Duclon Memorial for the Crate Late Models, Bryce Davis outdragged Brady Wonderling for the early lead, but a multi car crash involving Kurt Stebins and several others brought out a red after 2 laps.  While many were able to continue, Brian Kotarski and Paul Grigsby wound up on the hook after the meleee.  Davis pulled away on the restart, with Jeremy Wonderling and Mike Wonderling making moves to close in on the leaders.  Chris Fleming’s car came to a stop on lap 11 which set up another restart.  Homan spun in turn two, which created another multi car spin situation and collected Matt Latta and Steve Dixon.  Genko snuck into second on the restart as Jeremy and Brady Wonderling battled.  As Davis hit traffic, Genko and Jeremy Wonderling closed in and the final five laps saw them all dicing back and forth, trading the lead.  The trio came three wide off the final corner and in a flat out drag race to the line, Wonderling took the win by less than half a car length over Genko and Davis in an absolutely thrilling finish.  Brady Wonderling and Holmes rounded out the top five.
Crate Late Model heats were won by Jeremy Wonderling, Jason Knowles, and Brady Wonderling .  The fast time for the Crate Late Models was set by Jeremy Wonderling at 15.158, which earned him a $111 cash award from Max and Brandy Blair.
The 20-lap Pro Mod feature started with Adam Ashcroft taking the early lead and finding himself in lapped traffic early with Zain Harvey giving chase, while Steve Dixon broke into third and tried to chase down the lead duo.  The first caution flew for Victor Earle and Chad Arnold’s spin on lap 10, setting up a restart.  Dixon grabbed second on the restart and snagged the lead from Ashcroft before another yellow flew.  Harvey slid wide o the next restart, which allowed Brodie Hill to take third as Dixon and Ashcroft battled for the lead.  A spin by Andy Eastman set up a two lap shootout to the finish.  Dixon held off Ashcroft for the win, followed by Hil, Critter Hemphill, and Tyler Oakes.
Pro Mod heats were won by Adam Ashcroft, Tyler Oakes, and Critter Hemphill.
In the 29-lap Russ Prentice Memorial for the Street Stocks, Dale Rissinger and Justin Neff battled for the early lead as Tom Kemp rocketed into third spot.  Byron Dewitt made a great moved on the restart to take the top spot and pulled away from Neff and Kemp as Rissinger slid to fifth behind Kurt Stebbins.  A red flag flew on lap 14 when Steve Skalar rode up on the frontstretch wall and did a roll onto his roof.  He was OK.  When racing resumed, Kemp grabbed second and tried to chase down Dewitt, grabbing the lead on lap 19 when Dewitt bobbled.  Neff and Gage had separate incidents on lap 20 that knocked them to the back of the field and under the ensuing yellow Stebbins had a mechanical issue and had to get towed to the pits.  In the final run to the finish, Kemp pulled away from Dewitt for the win, with Bill Taylor, Bobby Lippa Jr, and Bill Taylor rounded out the top five.
Street Stock heats were won by Tom Kemp, Kurt Stebbins, and Sherman Gage.
The 15-lap Mini Stock feature started with DJ Williams and Andrew Kreamer trading the lead back and forth and they were soon joined by Andy Schumaker and Brad Whiteside.  Schumaker grabbed the second spot on lap 4 and Whiteside moved into third just before a caution flew for Holden Heineman smacked the wall in turn four to bring out a yellow.  Whiteside got second on the restart and chased after leader Williams while Trever Putt battled Bryson Hill for fifth.  Williams pulled away in the closing laps and took the feature win, followed by Whiteside, Schumaker, Kreamer, and Fisher.
