50-lap "Mike Mazzara Memorial" was also Arre's second straight victory.
Arre's Ford powered racer started the race in the 16th spot, while
youngster Ryan Seaman of Toms River rocketed into the lead. Soon Seaman was
battling with Brian Scisco of Bradley Beach for the as the first ten laps
went into the record books without a problem. The Seaman/Scisco fight for
first finally boiled over with 14 laps down when the duo tangled exiting the
second turn. Scisco's mount then ramped over the nose of Seaman's car and
flipped on its roof before sliding upside down the length of the backstretch.
Scisco climbed from his battered mount uninjured.

the first for first on the restart as Arre soon moved into contention. Arre

Carpenter of Brick was fourth and Felix Verlangieri of Lavallette was fifth.

of the year by crossing the finish line second, while Neptune's George
Andretta, defending champ Rob Williams of Farmingdale and Jim Vogt, also of
