On a night for the fans, they were greeted with perfect weather, and a great night of racing. There were many “firsts” for the drivers as well. Ryan Scott picked up his first ever Rusted Nutz RUSH Pro Mod feature win as Darrell Bossard picked up his first win of 2017 in the Overhead Door of Jamestown Super Late Model feature. Jason Genco was able to park his sharp looking 29J in victory lane in the Shults Auto Group RUSH Crate Late Model class. Greg Johnson picked up the Sugar Grove Beverage Outlaw E-Mod win, Brandon Groters won the Wellington Log Homes Street Stock finale, and Roger Hall won the Bailey’s Towing and Recovery Challenger feature. It was Tommy Kosinski picking up the Super Sportsman Special event to continue his great season thus far.

The first feature event of the night was the Rusted Nutz RUSH Pro Mods. New York’s Steve Dixon led the first five laps of the race with Jason Covey hot on his tail in second. Before the completion of lap six, the caution flew for points leader, Dennis Lunger Jr., spinning to a stop. On the ensuing restart, the 18 car of Chad Carlson was penalized one row for jumping the start. Carlson’s bad luck would continue as he would get in a pile-up with Brian Mohawk and Dennis Hagg Jr in turn two after the race went back to green. The yellow flag would again after only one more lap was completed for another incident in turn two; this time, involving the 4Q of Jarrod Silvis. The top five at the time was Dixon continuing to lead, Matt Harvey second, Covey third, with Brian Hartzell and Ryan Scott rounding it out. Scott would move into fourth and Lunger would enter the top five before Hagg Jr came to a stop on the front stretch on lap nine. The great racing continued with a four wide battle out of turn two for the second position. Ryan Scott would prevail with the position, followed by Lunger continuing his charge from the back in third. By lap fourteen, Scott was pressuring Dixon for the race lead. Cars would bottle up with the end result being another spin by the 71L of Lunger in the middle of turns three and four. Scott would grab the lead shortly after the race returned to green with Harvey following him into second position. Scott went onto win his first ever RUSH Pro Mod feature, with Harvey, Scott Gurdak, Lunger Jr, and early race leader Dixon rounding out the top five. Heat winners were Lunger and Covey.

Greg Johnson led the Sugar Grove Beverage Outlaw E-Mods from the pole for twenty laps of action. He quickly jumped out to an early lead and set a fast pace. By lap seven, he was already into lapped traffic, with Justin Carlson, John Woodward, Joel Watson, and Butch Southwell battling for the next four positions. Quickly after entering lapped traffic, the caution flew for the 38H of Brodie Hill spinning at the exit of turn four. Following the restart, Carlson got side by side with Johnson for the lead. Slight contact was made between the two cars, which opened the door for Woodward to take over the top spot from third position. The 38H machine Hill again spun coming out of four, freezing the field. Shortly after the caution came out for Hill; Butch Southwell, John Boyd, Troy Johnson, and Mike Kinney piled up in turn two. Under caution, Carlson began to smoke heavily, and retired to the pits. With nine to go, the top three were battling hard for the lead. Eventually, Greg Johnson would extend his lead, while Watson battled with Brewer for second. Brewer would prevail. Josh Ferry entered the top four by passing Shawn Shingledecker, while Woodward brought home fifth.  Heat winners were Brewer, Troy Johnson, and Watson.

Shults Auto Group RUSH Crate Late Models were led to green by the 29J of Jason Genco and the 0 of Ryan Scott. After the completion of one lap, Nathan Earle and Dylan Goodman tangled in turn four. After going back to green, Genco was able to lead the second lap as the rest of the field stayed double file with great racing action from the front all the way to the back. Genco would continue to extend his lead through five laps complete as Ryan Scott, Wyatt Scott, Max Blair, and Paul Norman rounded out the top five. At halfway, the top five remained the same with Wyatt battling his cousin Ryan for the second spot. With only five laps remaining, Darrell Bossard entered the top five as the rest of the top five cars battled through lapped traffic. Wyatt would finally secure the second spot with one lap to go, as Goodman would again come to a stop, setting up a one lap shootout for the win. Blair made it three-wide with both Scotts for second position coming out of turn two. At the checkers, it was Genco, Blair, Wyatt, Ryan, and Bossard. Heat winners were Genco and Dennis Lunger Jr.

After winning his heat race earlier in the evening, Damian Bidwell sat on the point for the Overhead Door of Jamestown Super Late Models. Damian was sporting a #15 on the side of his car for a racing friend who had recently lost his life. Once the race was green, Bossard would secure first position as David Scott used the high side to fly into second place. Rich Gardner came to a stop in the middle of one and two to bring out the first caution of the event. Bossard got too low in turn one and David Scott would take advantage, bolting into the lead after the restart. Jacob Finnerty and Bidwell made it a three car battle with Bossard for second, as Scott continued to pull away. John Volpe moved into the fourth spot as Finnerty used the high side to take over second. Volpe continued his charge to the front with by passing both Bossard and Finnerty. By lap twenty one, Scott’s lead was cut from 2.5 seconds to 1.3 seconds as Volpe continued to be the fastest car on the track. Scott made contact with lapped traffic, collecting the leader, Volpe who was second, Rick Tripodi, Rich Gardner, and Breyton Santee. Finnerty inherited the lead with Bossard, Bidwell, Max Blair, and Dutch Davies your new top five with only four laps remaining. The new leader Finnerty pulled off under caution, before the race would return to green. Bossard, the new leader, went onto win his first super late model feature of 2017 with Blair, Bidwell, Davies, and Bump Hedman your top five. Heat winners were Bidwell and Nathan Hill.
The showcase event of the season for the Super Sportsman was next with Michael and Ted Kosinski leading the pack to the green flag. Tommy Kosinski moved his way into second by the completion of lap two. By the completion of lap four, Tommy Kosinski was the new leader. At lap six, it was Tommy Kosinski leading Dan Nocero, Michael Kosinski, Ted Kosinski, and Jim Kibbe. Nocero started pressuring Kosinski for the lead as Ted Kosinski and Kibbe moved past Michael Kosinski for third and fourth position. With three lap remaining, Brian Larson spun to a stop, collecting the top five cars of Ted Kosinski and Jim Kibbe. On the restart, the new top five was Tommy Kosinski, Nocero, Michael Kosinski, Ron Burgun, and Steve Longo. Nocero continued to pressure Tommy Kosinski for the top spot but his last lap pass attempt would come up short. Ted Kosinski, Jim Kibbe, and Ron Burgun filled out the rest of the top five. Heat winners were Kibbe and Nocero.

Brian Crandall and Dave Shagla were on the point for the Wellington Log Homes Street Stock feature. After only one lap, third place car Michael Reed lost the handle in turn three, bringing out the yellow. Anthony Marotto, John Boardman, and Brandon Groters were the current top five. On the ensuing restart, Groters would move into third, and then make it three wide for the lead at the flagstand on the following lap for the lead. After Groters got by Crandall and Shagla, they would tangle on lap three, bringing out the second caution of the event. It took three attempts at a restart before we would finally see some green flag laps. On lap four, Boardman was side by side with Groters for first. Boardman was unable to complete the pass as Kyle Couchenour, Gary Fisher, and Marotto were the remaining top five cars. On lap nine, Reed came to stop again for another yellow. After early trouble, Shagla moved into fourth, with Boardman again getting his nose under Groters for the top spot. Groters used momentum off the high side to protect his lead. Another caution would slow the field before Boardman would bobble trying to get the lead, allowing Shagla to make it a three car battle for first. Coming out of turn two, Boardman and Shagla made contact, resulting in both cars to make hard contact with the wall. Before the field could return to green, their time limit was reached, and Groters was declared your winner. Fisher, Couchenour, Marotta, and Bill Applebee was the rest of your top five. Heat winners were Shagla, Boardman, and Groters.

Dylan Greene and Jasmine Markham were the top two starters for the Bailey’s Towing and Recovery Challenger finale. Roger Hall took over first place just before halfway and Brandon Huffman would challenge him over last few laps for the top spot. Huffman would come up short as Hall went onto win his first feature of the 2017 season at Stateline. Rory Houser, Chris Horton, and Andy Proper finished out the top five positions. Heat winners were Proper, Kevin Covell, and Huffman.
