Friday Washout Sets up Double Features at Chemung
by Carol Houssock

  Weather forced the cancellation of Chemung Speedrome’s Friday night program. In a year with little rain, this is just the second time the show did not go on.

  The races lost will not be made up, however this Friday the track will run twin 20-lap features for the Sunoco Modifieds. They will be in action along with the Super Stocks, 4 Cylinders, INEX Legends and Bandoleros. The following week, August 26th, the INEX Legends will run twin 15-lap features. They were scheduled to run for double points, so they will do this now by running two features on the 26th.

  The season now boils down to those two remaining Friday nights. Point leaders looking to claim the 2016 championships include TJ Zacharias (Sunoco Modifieds). He enters this Friday night’s twin bill with a 43-point advantage over Zack Curren. Nick Robinson is almost assured the Super Stock title, leading Chad Lane by 127 points. Monica Green is on track to defend her 4 Cylinder title representing the FWD contingent as overall point leader. Jordan Mathews is 80 points back, but leading among those in RWD cars. Alexandria Smith is three races away from her third consecutive title in the INEX Legends division, currently leading Matt Evans by 77 points. And in the Bandolero division ‘Smokey and the Bandit’, Garrett Zacharias and Bryce Bailey, will likely share the honors in that division representing the Outlaw and Bandit drivers.

  This Friday pits open at 4 PM, grandstand gates open at 5:30 and practice begins at 6. First race starts at 7 PM. Admission is $13 for adults, $11 for seniors 65+, $5 for kids 6-12, and free for kids 5 and under. Fans who bring their adult or senior grandstand ticket stub from August 6th will receive $3 off their admission price.
