Middleport NY pilot Jason Boyle led all 30 laps in the caution
filled ARANY Mr. Dirt Pro Stock event at Gasport Speedway Sunday Night.
41 Pro Stocks attempted to qualify for the 30 car starting field thru 5
heat events and 2 consis. Boyle in just his 2nd season of racing showed
his cool in taking the first of 5 heats putting him on the pole for the
main event.
Boyle sat alongside Mike Ward and Boyle jumped out into the lead
and he was pressured throughout but Pete Stefanski and Jipp Ortiz made
contact and sent Ortiz realing the remainder of the event. 6 cautions
and 1 red slowed Boyle's pace. At the end it was Boyle, Pete Stefanski,
Jon Miller, Ken Sargent, and Beamer Guzzardi. Boyle, Mike Ward, Jipp
Ortiz, Ken Sargent and Stefanski won the heats. Danny Gilbert and Andy
Dembek won the consis.
In the 20 lap Sprotsman feature it was led to the green by Brian
Elliottson and Brian Page with Elliottson as the early leader but a
great 3 wide move to the inside put Rob Pietz into the 3rd spot. Lap 5
Adm Ferri made a nice inside pass to take the top spot did some fine
driving to hold off Pietz. 5 cautions slowed the pace. On 2 restarts
Ferri and Pietz played mental games for that edge for the lead and were
both warned by the starter but at the end of the 20 laps it was the
rookie Ferri holding off Piez for the win and they were followed
byPaulgaboury, Jeff Leggett and Page. Leggett and Ferri were the heat
The 15 lap Street Stocks had Bill wade and John Dietz leading
the field and it was the rookie Dietz in the early going with Nick
Micallef and Fred Korton giving chase. Lap 5 Dietz was forced to the
outside by Micallef holdingdown the fort. Lap 7 Mark Loveland was in the
runnerup spot but on lap 9 Loveland bobbled and lost 3 positions back to
5th and Alex Morris took over 2nd. Morris took the lead from Micallef
and would hold on until the final lap as Morris drifted too high in turn
3 and Loveland took the lead and the win with Morris, Micallef,Chris
Crawford, and Korton. Morris, Loveland, and Micallef were the heat
In the 15 lap Mini Stocks Jamie Gilbert took the lead from Norm
