Story By: TOBY LAGRANGE / GLEN RIDGE MOTORSPORTS PARK – FULTONVILLE, NY – On what could only be described as a beautiful night in the Mohawk Valley, the Glen Ridge Motorsports Park roared back to life with another DIRTcar Sunday Night Show this week presented by Northeast Paving and Sealcoat. When the final checkered flag waved, many familiar faces had returned to victory lane.
Current Red Chair DIRTcar Sportsman points leader and defending track champion Andrew Buff made a strong statement in his quest for track title number three. The second-generation driver out of Latham picked up his fifth feature event win of the season. Early race leader Ricky Quick finished second with Derrick McGrew, Jr., third, Justin Buff fourth and Cody Ochs fifth. The heat races were won by Quick and Justin Buff.
Luke Horning continued his quest for a fifth track title in the Yurkewecz Auto Crushers DIRTcar Pro Stock division. Horning picked up the win over Jay Fitzgerald, Johnny Rivers, Shawn Perez, Jr. and early leader Steve Cosselman. The heat races were won by Fitzgerald and Cosselman.
Mike Hill held off current points leader Butchie Irwin to pick up the Cherko Fusco Realty Limited Sportsman feature event win. Lucas Duncan finished third with Jeffrey Bobilin fourth and Kirsten Swartz fifth. Swartz was making her first start ever in a full-sized stock car.
