Brian Calabrese Fails Short Track Super Series Inspection; Michael Ballestero Awarded Victory Friday At All-Tech

Story By: CODY MANMILLER / SHORT TRACK SUPER SERIES – LAKE CITY, FL – An apparent career-first Short Track Super Series victory for Johnstown, N.Y.’s Brian Calabrese Friday evening at the All-Tech Raceway was nixed in post-race technical inspection.

Calabrese fended off the advances of Michael Ballestero in the final laps of the 30-lap, $2,000-to-win main event.

However, Calabrese’s win was negated due to a rocker arm infraction.

Ballestero is credited with the win pending further inspection.

Dylan Madsen, Alex Bell, Scott Hitchens and Payton Talbot completed the front five.

One final night remains in the Sunshine Swing, as the STSS Modifieds will race for $8,000 on Saturday night.
