KENNY BRIGHTBILL AND DOUG HOFFMAN TAKE DIRT TRACK MODIFIED WINS AT EAST
WINDSOR SPEEDWAY FRIDAY NIGHT
EAST WINDSOR, N.J. ~ Pennsylvania residents Kenny Brightbill and Doug Hoffman
took the big money home to the Keystone State Friday evening after winning
twin 20-lap main events for the dirt track Modified stock cars at the East
Windsor Speedway. Bright was in fact in a position to sweep the double bill
until a late race tangle knocked him out of the second event.
Mike Franz of Paulsboro led the initial feature race early while Sinking
Spring's Brightbill was charging from 16th. Fred Dmuchowski of Neshanic
Station took command on lap four, but Brightbill advanced to second moments
later. This duo tussled for a couple of laps before Brightbill took the lead
for good. Brightbill then held his ground to the checker flag, while
Allentown's Hoffman was second. Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, Fritz Epright of
Whitehouse Station and Dmuchowski completed the top five.
While the first feature was slowed just twice by minor incidents, the
second Modified race was a different story with several yellows interrupting
the action. John Oliver of Flemington led early while Brightbill again
marched to the front. Brightbill took the lead on lap seven, while Hoffman
advance to second a few laps later.
Brightbill then appeared to be headed to his second straight win until he
tangled with Oliver's mount, which was by then going a lap down, right at the
end of the race. This moved Hoffman into the top spot, while Epright, Pauch,
Jimmy Horton of Neshanic Station and Dmuchowski were second through fifth.
Paul Marra, Sr. of Bordentown led the initial eight laps of the companion
Sportsman 20-lapper, but it was Art Liedl, Jr. of Somerville who charged to
the front near the half way mark and raced on to his second win of the year.
The race for second was a thriller with Stan Janiszewski of Trenton taking
the spot at the line over Richie Pratt, Jr. of Hurffville. Marra and Ryan
Godown of Ringoes were fourth and fifth.
Lady driver Carol Whitehouse of Hamilton fought a fierce battle with
defending champ Al Cheney of Cranbury before winning the 15-lapper for the
Street Stocks. Third place finisher Paul Marra, Jr. of Bordentown had the
best seat in the house while Whitehouse and Cheney swapped the top spot
during the closing laps. Phil Retter of Easton, Pa. and Jackson's Rob Ormsbee
were fourth and fifth.
The East Windsor Speedway returns to action this Friday evening (July 27)
with the popular "Run What Ya Brung" format in effect for all three
divisions. The Modifieds will run a 25-lap main event, Sportsman racers have
a 20-lapper planned, while the Street Stocks will battle in a 15-lapper. It
will be Country Club Sunoco Night with plenty of fan give aways. Drivers Fred
Dmuchowski and Mike Johnston will bring their cars to the grandstand mid-way
starting at 5:00 p.m. to meet with fans, pose for photos and sign autographs.
Friday night's races begin at 7:30 p.m.
