Chemung Speedrome 2011 PR

June 11th, 2011
Zacharias, Potrzebowski, Alcaro, and Price victorious at the ‘Drome

By: Daryl Canfield

The Chemung Speedrome was back in action on Friday night June 10th with “Pack the Track Night.” A nice crowd was on hand to witness the racing action of week 2 at the ‘Drome.

The Bandolero division was in action for the first time in 2011. Anthony Reforgiato claimed the victory over David French in the 8 lap feature.

The INEX Legends were next to take to the asphalt at the ‘Drome. A great battle up front for the lead between Richie Vanderpool, Jimmy Zacharias, and Mike Alcaro got the action going. By lap 5, Alcaro had finalized the pass for the lead and started to pull away from the field. The caution flew as Barry Schrantz collected the turn 2 wall and sent him and Bethany Scherer to the pits for the remainder of the event. Alcaro went on to take the win with Daren Scherer in second, followed by Brandon DeBrakeleer, Jimmy Zacharias, and AJ Griffin in the top 5.

The Super Stocks were now ready to make their way onto the track. Terry Potrzebowski jumped out to an early lead and left Jeff Goodwin and Mike Nichols to do battle for second. Nichols and Goodwin rubbed fenders and swapped positions back and forth until Nichols checked out to chase down Potrzebowski. Nichols closed the gap quickly until his brakes got hot allowing Potrzebowski to maintain his lead and close out the win. Nichols came home second, followed by Goodwin, John Lane, and Terry Ostrander.

The 4 Cylinder Mini Stocks were next to excite the crowd during their feature event. Tony Gullo made his way to the lead early in the event, but last week’s winner Milton Price was on the charge. Price ran Gullo down and got under Gullo coming off turn 4 to take the lead. Price went on to win his second feature in a row, followed by Gullo, Gene Purvis, Phil Haner, and Joe Lane rounding out the top 5.

The Sunoco Modifieds were last to take center stage of the ‘Drome for a 40 lap feature event. Lee Sharpsteen and Rusty Smith led the field to the green flag to get the action started. Sharpsteen led the field with Jimmy Zacharias moving into second, with Smith and TJ Potrzebowski close behind. Sharpsteen held the lead until lap 5 when Zacharias made his move and took the lead. Zacharias pulled away from the field and took the win in a caution free 40 lapper. Rusty Smith got by Sharpsteen for second, Sharpsteen finished third, and TJ Potrzebowski and JR Kent closed out the top 5.

The Chemung Speedrome will return to racing action this Sunday, June 19th at 2:15 pm. The ‘Drome will be closed this Friday, June 17th for ROC Modified racing action at the Spencer Speedway in Williamson, NY. Sunday’s action at the ‘Drome will be jam packed with Sunoco Modified twin 30’s, Super Stocks, INEX Legends, 4Cylinder Mini Stocks, and Bandoleros. Hope to see you all this Sunday at the Chemung Speedrome!
