Busti, NY (August 31, 2019): Champions were decided in all divisions at Stateline Speedway Saturday in the final points-paying event of the season. Joining the regular classes was the “Thunder on Dirt” Vintage Modified Series.
2019 champions awarded trophies in Victory Lane included Dennis Lunger in both the Outlaw E-Mods and Chris Whyte’s Spray Foam Options RUSH ProMods, John Boardman in the Penn-Ohio ProStocks, and Rick Feely in the Challengers. Max Blair, both Dave Warren Auto Group Super Late Model champion and Close Racing Supply RUSH Late Model champion, was not present to accept his awards.
After heat race action determined the feature lineups the Penn-Ohio ProStock main event was first on the track with Krug Schreckengost and Eric McCray leading the 19-car field to Spanky Hall’s green flags. Schreckengost led until getting to turn four when he spun into the infield and narrowly missed being collected by Justin Pratt. When lap one was finished it was McCray leading Steve Yokum, Dennis Asel, Dave Shagla, and Gary Fisher. In turn four of lap two after contact between McCray and Yokum, Yokum spun with David Schauers, Pratt, Donald Blood, Schreckengost, Bill Reeves, and McCray all involved. Reeves’ car wound up sitting on the hood of McCray. When green was again shown it was Asel leading Shagla, Fisher, John Boardman, and last week’s winner Jason Black. Boardman was up to second at the end of two laps with Fisher and Black now side by side for fourth. Blood then spun in turn tow, collecting Pratt again in a wreck not of his making. Black was solidly in fourth at the end of three. At four laps Boardman and Asel were near even at the line for the lead. Anthony Marotto spun in turns one and two at five laps, then Kevin Hill repeated the spin at lap eight. After green turns three and four were again the scene of a four-car spin out including Schauers, Blood, Kevin Hill, and Victor Redeye. Boardman, Shagla, Fisher, Black, and Yokum brought the race back to green. Fisher moved into second at lap twelve and Black led Shagla by half a car-length at the white flag for third. At the checkers it was Boardman, Fisher, Black, Shagla, and Yokum. Boardman took the championship honors for the third year in a row. 
June 29 winner Adam Ashcroft and C J Irons brought the sixteen-car RUSH ProMod field to green with Ashcroft leading when Stu Rickard hit the back stretch wall and was hit by Greg Johnson. When lap one was complete it was Ashcroft, Irons, former champion Scott Gurdak, Brian Mohawk, and two time winner Chad Carlson as the front five. Matt Putt spun in turns one and two with Nicholas Mohawk losing the majority of his right side sheet metal. When lap two was in the books Carlson had advanced to third when Nate Hartzell spun in turns three and four, again slowing the event. Vaughn Nystrom and Mike Johnstone were the next caution, at lap three. At four laps Carlson was second and next to Ashcroft for the lead at seven complete. At halfway Ashcroft was again the leader with Carlson, Irons, Gurdak, and 2019 champion Dennis Lunger up to fifth. Carlson led by mere inches at thirteen laps over Ashcroft. When the checkers fell it was Carlson for his third win of the season over Ashcroft, Irons, six-time winner and 2019 champion Lunger, and Gurdak, also a past champion. 

The Close Racing Supply RUSH Late Models had Andy Boozel and Chad Schauers in front for the start with two remaining side by side until turn four when Boozel established himself as the leader. Gary Troyer spun in turn three at lap three but kept moving, sparing the caution flag. At three laps David Lyon came into the top five. The halfway point had the top five as Boozel, Schauers, Darrell Bossard, Kyle Zimmerman, and Lyon. At thirteen laps it was Bossard and Schauers in a side by side duel for the runner up spot when Alex Haight spun in turn four. On the green David Parker spun in turn one. Bossard took the lead in turn one at the restart but at lap fourteen Boozel was again side by side with him fighting for the lead with Zimmerman now third, Schauers fourth, and Lyon fifth. Brian Larson had an encounter with the third turn wall at that point, slowing the race under caution. Scott Gurdak made his presence known at lap sixteen when he came into fifth. Gurdak, second in the championship standings, needed to finish third to take the title from Max Blair, who was not present. Parker again spun at lap seventeen, this time on the front straight. At the checkers it was Boozel, for his first Stateline win of 2019, over Bossard, Zimmerman, Lyon, and Gurdak, who was one half a car-length behind Lyon. 

The Outlaw E-Mods were shown to the green by Mike McGee and Ron Seeley with McGee leading the way at lap one over fourth starting and two-time 2019 winner Steve Rex up to second. Seeley was third with Butch Southwell fourth and 2019 champion Dennis Lunger fifth. Randy Hall replaced Lunger for fifth at lap two but Lunger again held it at lap three. At the halfway point it was McGee, Rex, Lunger, Southwell, and Hall. Deven Dudenhoeffer spun in turns one and two with Lunger and Mark Thrasher getting involved. With six to go it was a side by side battle for second between Rex and Southwell with Rex gaining the spot, then Hall getting by both for second at the finish. The order at the end of the race was McGee, his first of the year at Stateline, Hall, Rex, Southwell, and John Boyd, who took over fifth at lap fourteen. Lunger was the 2019 champion, a repeat of a year ago

The Dave Warren Auto Group Super Late Models finished their regular season with June 8 winner and defending class champion Ryan Scott on the pole position with Chris Hackett to his right. Hackett assumed the lead at the green with Ryan Scott, Wyatt Scott, Dave Hess, and David Scott filling out the top five. At lap two Hackett and Ryan Scott were side by side for the lead with Hackett slightly ahead. Hackett led lap three then he and Ryan Scott were again side by side at lap four. Caution flew at lap five when Easton Hedman spun in turn four. At six laps Ryan Scott was just inches ahead at the line. The Dave Hess joined the race for the lead and took it at lap seven by about three lengths. At this point Dutch Davies was third and Chad Valone fourth. At eleven laps Hess was leading Ryan Scott, David Scott, Davies, and Hackett, then at lap twelve Hackett spun in turn two. At the halfway point Hess led David Scott, Ryan Scott, Chad Valone, and Matt Urban. Valone got to third at lap fifteen with Hess and David Scott locked in a close race for the lead with Scott running the low line and Hess up against the wall. Hess’s lead was only one half car length at lap eighteen but he lengthened it to a full length at nineteen. Scott wasn’t done yet as he came back to half a length on twenty. At that point Hess started pulling away to a five-length lead at the finish. The top five were Hess, David Scott, Valone, Urban, and Davies. 
The Vintage Modified Series ran a fifteen lap feature with David Myers winning the Modifieds and Tim Natalino the Sportsmen. Steve Longo led from the green over Andy Imbaught, Myers, Rick Majka, and Luke Zimmer. On lap two Myers took over at the front. At the finish it was Myers, Imbaught, Longo, Majka, and Natalino.
The Challenger feature started with Patrick Oyer and Brandon Hall on the front row. Sullivan led lap one followed by Holden Heineman, Oyer, Hall, and Chris Horton. Horton was fourth at two laps. Yellow was shown at lap three for Jon Seekings and Hall in turn two. Tyler Walters got to fifth at lap eight when Oyer headed to the infield. At the checkers it was Sullivan for his first win, Heineman, Rick Feely (the 2019 champion), Walters, and John Mease. 
The final event of the 2019 season will be the World of Outlaws Late Model Series for the Dave Warren Auto Group Super Late Models on September for a $10,000 to win 50-lap main event. The Close Racing Supply RUSH Late Models and the Outlaw E-Mods will have regular shows of heats and features.
