Finocchario Brings Home the Checkers at Spencer

The first of 6 races for the NYSS series was held at Spencer Speedway on June 2. A total of 23 cars raced their way into the 25 lap feature. Drivers from all over NY state participate in this series that has brought back full fender racing to our local tracks.

The 3 heat races were won by Dylan Bancroft, Zach Willis and Nate Peckham. 

Kenny Atkins started on the pole of the feature race with the beautifully prepared #17 and led the first 5 laps. The first caution flew for a spin in turn 4 and on the ensuing restart Peckham shot into the lead. His place at the front of the pack ended on lap 8 when Chris Finocchario passed him for the lead. Four more cautions would slow the race, leaving some banged up cars in the pit area. When the checkered flag fell, Finocchario claimed his first ever win in a full fendered car. Rounding out the top 10 were Chris Vogler, Peckham, Steve Pesarek, Willis, Atkins, Billy Coyle, Dale Lazzaro, Terry Cheetham and Shaun Frarey.

During his interview, Finocchario was happy to thank all his sponsors and crew for helping him to his first win of the year. He also gave a shout out to Bobby Lippa Jr. for starting this series and putting in all the hours that are needed to make it successful.

The next NYSS series race is scheduled for June 16 at Spencer Speedway. Racing starts at 7:15 pm.

Jim Steffenhagen Jr.  Wins NYSS at Lancaster

The NY Super Stocks series held their opening race of 2017 at Lancaster National Speedway and 29 cars entered the pits ready to do battle for the Mike Julicher Tribute race. Julicher was a lifelong race fan who helped with the family race cars and gave support to young drivers from the Buffalo area. He was well known at Lancaster. He passed away during the winter. The 50 lap race in his honor was sponsored by TDH Refrigeration of Cheektowaga and added over $1000 bonus money to the purse.

The 8 lap heat races were won by Jake Wylie, Chris Finocchiaro, Jeff Whalen and Kevin Ide. 

A total of 27 cars started the feature and the first caution flag was thrown on lap 2 when leader Tommy Krawczyk blew his motor. When racing resumed the competition was fierce throughout the pack. Kevin Ide brought out the second caution when he spun down the frontstretch. On the restart, leader Scott Wylie suffered a right front flat in front of the field and this put Jimmy Steffenhagen in the lead which was shortlived as Jake Wylie 

On lap 14 Jake Wylie was leading the race and his car lost power exiting turn 2. Thankfully the entire field was able to move around him without incident. Steffenhagen was once again the leader when the race resumed. On lap 24 Tim Gullo and Kyle Sharp raced hard into turn one and got sideways. Gullo was able to save his car, but Sharp spun and the field took evasive action. However, the result was 7 cars were involved in the melee and the red flag was displayed.  

Racing resumed with 16 cars still in action. Steffenhagen was able to fend off any challenges for the lead. He sailed to victory in the first race of the year. In victory lane, the driver was ecstatic! He thanked his sponsors and family for all their support. His excitement was electric and the crowd responded with applause.

Drivers finishing in 2nd through 11th places received an additional $100. The Hard Charger award was presented to Dylan Bancroft who started 23rd and finished 8th. The Hard Luck award was given to Tommy Krawczyk.

The next race for the NYSS is June 2nd at Spencer Speedway in Williamson, NY. Racing starts at 7:30 pm.

Finocchario Wins NYSS Firecracker 50 at Adirondack International Speedway

New Breman, NY- Amid strong thunderstorms across Central NY, the New York Superstock Series gambled that mother nature would give everyone a break and allow some racing up in the North Country on this holiday weekend. Drivers itching to get back to racing drove for hours from all across NY state, PA and NC to do battle, and battle they did. After some fast and clean qualifying events, the main event would prove to be an unintended enduro. Eleven cautions, mostly for individual spins or two car tangles, would result in some wary drivers and a couple cars running out of fuel.

The NYSS presented by Aratari Auto Finishers started 22 cars in the Northcoast Performance Parts 50 Lap special with Joe Miller and Chris Finocchario leading them to the green. After a great side by side first lap Finochario took the top spot from Miller but quickly, a multi car accident on the front straight collected several cars and brought out the first of many cautions. This wreck would eventually be the demise of top performer, Jim Steffenhagen Jr. and Rookie of the Year contender Joel Gleason. Finocchario would hold the top spot through the entire event fending off challenges from several drivers who had run AIS in the past. On one restart 2016 AIS Champion Dylan Bancroft nearly grabbed the lead away with a strong inside move. Finochario fought hard to secure the lead and was never seriously challenged the rest of the race. Finocchiro would bring his beautiful car home for the win followed by Bancroft, Billy Coyle, rookie Kenny Atkins (his best finish of the season) and Hard Charger Chris Vogler who started last in the 22 car field.

The Aratari Auto Finishers NYSS next event will be July 14th at Spencer Speedway in Williamson, NY
