Aug 6, 2011 - updated Aug 6th, 2011 4:05pm
Web posted by Scott Running

Stafford Springs, CT --

For Immediate Release: August 5, 2011

After a week away, Stafford Speedway was back
racing with the 21st Annual Town Fair Tire 150 program. In NASCAR Whelen
All-American Series feature racing, Keith Rocco outdueled Ted Christopher to
take his third consecutive and sixth feature win of the 2011 season in the
SK Modified® feature, J.J. Hill scored a dominating first win of 2011 by
leading all 30 laps in the Late Model feature, Joey Cipriano nailed down his
fourth win of 2011 in the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature, Duane Provost
picked up his first career win in the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature, and
Josh Wood beat his father Don to the checkered flag to record his third win
of the 2011 season in the 15-lap DARE Stock feature.
In the 40-lap SK Modified® feature event, Chris Matthews took the lead at
the green with Michael Gervais, Jr. behind him. Sean Foster and Tom Bolles
were side by side for third place while Nichole Morgillo and Dan Avery were
side by side for fifth place. Bolles took the third spot and Avery took the
fourth spot while Ryan Preece moved into fifth place.
Preece was the car on the charge as he moved from fifth to second in the
outside groove. Keith Rocco was right behind Preece and he followed him
towards the front and occupied the third position while Matthews continued
to lead. Avery moved by Gervais for fourth place on lap-9 and Woody Pitkat
followed him by Gervais.
The lead changed hands on lap-11 as Preece and Rocco got by Matthews, who
dropped off the pace and came to pit road with a flat left front tire.
Preece and Rocco were now the leading cars, with Avery and Pitakt in third
and fourth, with Ted Christopher now in the fifth position. Pitkat moved by
Avery for third on lap-14 and the order changed again on lap-17 as
Christopher went by Avery in the outside groove and then moved to the low
groove to get by Pitkat in turns 3+4 to move from fifth to third place.
Heather DesRochers spun in turn 1 to bring the caution out with 18 laps
complete.
Back under green, Preece and Rocco were side by side for the lead while
Christopher and Pitkat were locked side by side for third. Avery and Frank
Ruocco were side by side for fifth behind them. Christopher went from third
to first on lap-21 with a power move in turn 4 to take the lead with Rocco
behind him and Preece in third. Christopher’s time at the front was short
as Rocco moved to the front on lap-24. Preece tried to follow Rocco by
Christopher, but he made contact with Christopher and he nearly spun.
Preece was able to gather the car back up and he settled into line back in
sixth.
Christopher went back by Rocco for the lead on lap-28, but Rocco was not to
be outdone as he moved back by Christopher one lap later. Adam Skowyra spun
in turn 2 to bring the caution out with 29 laps complete. The order for the
restart was Rocco and Christopher on the front row, with Eric Berndt and
Pitkat in the second row.
Rocco led the field back under green with Christopher falling into line
behind Rocco. Avery took a hard hit into the turn 3 wall to bring the
caution back out with 31 laps complete.
Rocco again took the lead back under green with Christopher right on his
bumper. Berndt was still third, with Preece in fourth and Pitkat and Ruocco
were side by side for fourth place. Christopher got into the back of Rocco
in turns 3+4 on the final lap and Rocco began to get out of shape, but he
gathered the car back up and was able to beat Christopher back to the
checkered flag to pick up his third consecutive and sixth overall win of the
2011 season. Eric Berndt finished third, with Preece and Ruocco rounding
out the top-5.
In the 30-lap Late Model feature event, J.J. Hill went around Tom Butler and
took the lead at the drop of the green flag. Butler settled into second,
just ahead of Mark St. Hilaire, Patrick Townsend, and John Kasper. St.
Hilaire got by Butler on lap-5 to take over second while Hill was the
fastest car on track and was pulling away in the lead.
The top-5 ran in line until lap-11 when Dillon Moltz and Woody Pitkat moved
past Kasper to drop him from fifth back to seventh. Hill was continuing to
set a torrid pace at the front of the field, while St. Hilaire, Butler and
Townsend ahead of Moltz and Pitkat. That order stayed the same until lap-15
when Moltz and Pitkat went by Townsend to drop him from fourth back to sixth
place.
The order remained the same until lap-24 when Moltz and Pitkat again made a
tandem pass, dropping Butler from third back to fifth place. Hill was still
setting a blistering pace at the front of the field, and he had a lead of
nearly a full straightaway over St. Hilaire in second with 5 laps to go.
Hill was unstoppable as he took the checkered flag to record his first Late
Model win of the 2011 season in dominating fashion, leading all 30 laps.
Moltz made a move to the inside of St. Hilaire on the final corner and he
took second by a nose with Pitkat in fourth. XXX rounded out the top-5.
In the 20-lap SK Light Modified feature event, Steve Greer took the lead at
the green with Jay Goff moving into second behind Greer. Tony Santangelo
settled into third just ahead of Tommy Membrino, Jr. and Tony Membrino, Jr.
With 5 laps on the board, Greer continued to hold the lead with Goff several
car lengths behind him. Joey Cipriano had moved into fourth just ahead of
Tommy Membrino, Jr. in fifth while Tony Membrino, Jr. had moved up one spot
into third place. The caution came out with 6 laps complete for spins by
Jesse Ruocco and Harry Wheeler.
Greer took the lead back under green while Cipriano made a power move to go
from fourth to second as he dove under Goff and Tony Membrino. Cipriano
continued his charge as he moved to the front on lap-8. On lap-9, there was
contact between Kyle Spencer and Greer, which got both cars out of shape.
Spencer was shown the black flag for the contact and the caution came out
with 9 laps complete for a spin by Paul Tommasino in turn 1.
On the restart, Cipriano again took the lead while Tommy Barrett, Jr. was a
rocket ship on the outside groove and he moved into second with Chris Kopec
moving into third as Goff got out of shape and several cars had to slow down
to avoid Goff. Dylan Liseo was now in fourth with Tony Membrino falling
back to fifth. The caution came back out with 11 laps complete as Shayne
Prucker spun and hit the turn 2 wall.
Cipriano again took the lead on the restart with Barrett settling into line
behind him. Kopec took a look to the inside of Barrett, but couldn’t make a
pass and fell into line in third place. The fight for fourth was a side by
side duel between Tony Membrino and Santangelo, which Membrino got the
better of. Matt Galko moved by Santangelo to take over fifth on lap-16
while Cipriano was pulling away from Barrett by several car lengths at the
front of the field. Ruocco spun coming out of turn 4 to bring the caution
back out with 17 laps complete.
Cipriano was the leader back under green with Barrett, Kopec, and Galko
behind him, but the field only completed one lap before the caution came
back out for Tyler Lee Jackson and Ruocco, who came to a stop at the exit of
turn 2 and set up a green white checkered finish.
Cipriano took the lead on the restart with Barrett behind him. The last
time the SK Lights ran a feature, Barrett got by Cipriano on the final lap
for the win, but this time the roles were reversed as Cipriano was too
strong to be overtaken and he took the checkered flag ahead of Barrett for
his fourth win of the 2011 season. Galko finished third, with Kopec and
Spencer rounding out the top-5.
In the 20-lap Limited Late Model feature event, Duane Provost took the lead
at the green flag and he set the early pace ahead of Chris Cook, Dan
Flannery, Carla Botticello, and D.J. Burnham. The top-5 cars ran in line
until lap-8 when Cook got out of shape and slowed up, allowing Flannery,
Botticello, and Burnham to all move by Cook as he fell from second back to
fifth.
On lap-11 both Shawn Thibeault and Kevin Gambacorta moved past Cook while
Provost continued to hold the race lead ahead of Flannery, Botticello, and
Burnham. The running order remained the same until lap-18 when Thibeault
and George Nocera, Jr. both moved past Burnham to take over the fourth and
fifth positions. Gambacorta was now one spot behind Burnham in seventh
place.
Provost led the field around to the checkered flag to record his first
career Limited Late Model victory in dominating fashion, leading all 20
laps. Flannery finished second, with Botticello, Thibeault, and Nocera
rounding out the top-5.
In the 15-lap DARE Stock feature event, Kris Fluckiger took the lead on the
outside of Katie Brice to take the lead on the first lap, but Brice spun to
bring the caution out with 1 lap complete. Fluckiger went back to the front
on the restart with Albert Saunders behind him in second. Josh Wood was
third, but he was able to get past Saunders for second on lap-4 and he moved
by Fluckiger for the lead on lap-5.
Saunders and Andrew Hayes were having a great duel for second place behind
Wood, while Don Wood was now up to fourth and Kyle Casagrande and David
Arute were right behind Wood with 10 laps complete. Hayes was able to get
by Saunders for second, but before the lap could be completed, David Macha
spun in turn 3 to bring the caution out and Saunders was able to get his
spot back for the restart.
The restart came on lap-13 with Josh Wood taking the lead ahead of Don Wood,
Saunders, Hayes, Casagrande, and Arute. Casagrande made a move to the
inside of Hayes, but Hayes was hanging tough in the outside groove and he
was able to hold onto the third position.
Josh Wood led the field around to the checkered flag to pick up his third
win of the 2011 season. Don Wood came home second, with Saunders, Hayes,
and Casagrande rounding out the top-5.
