TREMONT OUTPERFORMS REST OF MODS, HARPER GETS CAREER FIRST IN SPORTSMAN

SATURDAY MAY 5, 2001
WEST LEBANON, NY- Kenny Tremont Jr won his third feature of the season at
Lebanon Valley Saturday night. Frank Harper piloted his sportsman car to
victory lane for the first time in his career. Robbie Speed was victorious in
the 20-lap Pro Stock main event. Madsen Overhead Doors, Bilinski and Boomers
Performance sponsored the great night of racing.
Maynard Forrette and Chris Moore led the modifieds down to the start of
the 30-lap feature. Forrette led the first two laps before Moore took the top
spot on lap three. The caution flew frequently during the feature, including
four times on lap five. Tremont moved up quickly from his 14th to sit seventh
by the second lap five caution. Tremont moved around Moore for the lead on
lap six and never looked back. Rich Ricci did a great job of missing the
ten-car pileup on lap five and was up to fourth by lap seven. A scary moment
happened on lap eight when John Lutes, John Tucker and Hollis Morrisey
crashed on the frontstretch. The red flag was brought out to clean up the
incident, fortunately all the drivers were okay. By the halfway point Ricci
had moved into the runner-up position with Moore, Tim Dwyer and Ronnie
Johnson rounding out the top five.
Donnie Corellis went pitside on lap 18. Steve Poirier made the long trip
down from Canada to compete at the Valley Saturday night. Poirier ran well in
his heat race and won the Dash for Cash sponsored by Madsen Overhead Doors.
During the feature he had a good run going and looked like he might get a top
five finish. A bounce off the backstretch wall slowed his momentum and
relegated him to an eighth place finish. Several restarts in the late stages
gave Ricci a chance at Tremont but Tremont pulled away on every restart.
Tremont was able to cruise home for his third victory of the season.
The modified drivers could have taken pointers from the sportsman
drivers. The 20-lap sportsman feature went green to checker with no caution
flags. Phil Arnold led the early portion of the event but got passed by Frank
Harper just before the halfway point. K.C. Goewey night almost ended early as
he almost hit the frontstretch wall on lap one. Goewey rebounded nicely after
losing many positions to get back up to fifth by lap 12. Goewey continued his
march toward the front and moved into the second position with two laps to
go. It was too little too late however as Harper had opened up a full
straightaway lead and took the checkered flag first. It was the first career
victory for Harper in his four seasons at Lebanon Valley. Danny Watson
finished third, Roy Bridge fourth and Sparky Lowe rounded out the top five.
Rob Yetman took the lead from Steve Brownell on lap nine of the 20-lap
Pro Stock feature. Yetman was the class of the field on this night and took
the victory easily. The most serious incident of the evening came on lap 14
when second through seventh piled up in turn four. Danny Sanchez spun out on
lap two of the race but recovered nicely to finish fourth.
The winner in the Pure Stock "A" feature was Ray Hall Jr. Peter Wiegand
won the Pure Stock "B" feature and John Denue won the Pure Stock "C" feature.
Buddy Hencke won the rookie feature for the fourth straight week and has
earned the right to move up to the pro stock division.
