As a result of rain on Aug. 12, the Modified and Pro Stock classes both had double features Saturday night at Lebanon Valley. Both races ended with drivers in need of pay dirt picking up important wins.
Modified feature No. 1 saw John Ruchel lead early from the pole. Kolby Schroder moved up from the third starting spot and proceeded to give chase.
Following a caution due to a Mike Keeler spin, Kenny Tremont Jr. was the man on the move. Tremont quickly moved up from the ninth starting spot to fourth, then pressured the front runners.
WEST LEBANON, NY – Last week, Brett Hearn indicated that he and Madsen Motorsports needed to up their game. They most definitely came to play on Saturday night.
Mike King inherited the pole after Rob Pitcher voluntarily dropped to the rear and led early. However, Andy Bachetti was hot on King’s heels. On lap 5, Bachetti was able to sneak past to take the lead.
At the same time, Hearn was on the move. By the time Bachetti took the lead, Hearn was already up to fifth. From there, it was a methodical move to the front. He dispatched of Brian Berger for fourth. Then it was Eddie Marshall (driving Kolby Schroder’s backup car) who was dropped like a bad habit.
WEST LEBANON, NY – Saturday night saw the Modifieds run double features in order to make up the race postponed due to lighting issues on May 6. Trouble here affected the rest of the night.
Denny Soltis started on pole, but quickly lost the advantage to Kyle Hoffman. Meanwhile, Brett Hearn started in fourth and wasted no time pressuring Hoffman’s Cyclone for the lead. On lap 6, Hearn took the lead and began to open up the advantage. Hoffman was able to hold off Eddie Marshall for second.
