Story By: PAUL SZMAL / OUTLAW SPEEDWAY – DUNDEE, NY – The 30-lap Friendly Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Outlaw Modified feature got off to a rough start, with a multi car pileup on a lap 4 restart eliminating 3 cars, and on the next attempt, Jeff Daugherty went straight off the first turn into the protective foam.
When racing resumed, Ron Cartwright held the lead over Kyle Coffey with JIm LaRock and Phil Vigneri III battling behind them, joined by Bobby Varin. Coffey was able to wrestle the lead away from Cartwright on lap 23 and Cartwright’s car gave out of lap 26, moving Vigneri III to second.

In the 25-lap Lane’s Yamaha 360 Sprint Car feature, Jared Zimbardi blasted out to the early lead, but a caution a few laps in closed the field for a restart, allowing Johathan Preston to pick up a pair of spots to get to second place. Preston spent the rest of the feature chasing down Zimbardi, and the two put on a show over the final two laps, trading slide jobs back and forth as they diced for the lead. Zimbardi was able to hang on and brought home his first win of the year over Preston. Craig Lane was third, followed by Scott Holcomb and Jason Barney.
