August 31st, 2012 - David Scott Super Late Model Winner on 1st Night of Fun Fest at Stateline Speedway

By Glenn Slocum

Saturday August 31st, 2012 Busti, NY: Perfect weather and a tacky race track made for exciting racing on the first night of "Fun Fest" at Stateline Speedway. The events sponsored by Cargo Auto Parts and Roberts Trucking featured five of the seven racing divisions with the Limited Late Models and Street Stocks sitting out on the first night and the Super Challengers and Super Sportsman will be sitting out on Saturday.

Time trials were held for the Super Late Models and Robbie Blair set fast time with 15.91 lap two tenths of a second faster the runner up Darrell Bossard. Blairís average speed for the fast lap was 75.226 MPH. Doug Eck jumped the cushion and did two barrel rolls in the second Super Late Model qualifying heat. Eck was unhurt but the flip ended his night of racing.

Dave Hess Jr. passed David Scott on lap three of the $1500 to win E-Mod event and never looked back while the race for second was heavily contested between Scott, Randy Hall, Brent Rhebergen and Ron Davies with Scott taking the position.

David Scott had better luck in the Super Late Model feature starting on the pole then using the top of the speedway to lead every lap. It sounded easy but strong challenges from Robbie Blair, Chris Hackett and Ron Davies gave Scott no rest. Davies tested Scott several times in heavy lap traffic and could pull alongside in the turns then would fall back on the straights.

Jason Genco came close to repeating his win of last Saturday but with two laps remaining mechanical problems ended his race and setup Max Blair for his fifth win of the season.

Kelly Frederes out ran 2012 Super Sportsman Champ Dan Nocero Jr. to win the Sportsman feature event. Frederes took control on lap three passing early leader Wade Watson.

Chad Bender was the only 2012 Champ to win his feature. Bender led the Super Challenger from the start for his eighth win.

David Scott and John Boardman were on the front row of the E-Mod feature with Brent Rhebergen and Mike McGee in row two. Scott led the first lap with Dave Hess Jr. second from his firth starting spot and Rhebergen third. Hess passed Scott and became the new leader on lap three .By lap seven Hess led Scott by 15 car lengths and was closing on the rear of the field as the race stayed green. On lap ten the first yellow was displayed for Steve Dixon stopped in turn two. With half the race complete Hess, Scott, Rhebergen and Randy Hall were the leaders. Ron Davies moved into the top five and was third on lap thirteen. Hess was once again way out in front as Scott, Rhebergen, Hall and Davies fought for second. With eighteen laps completed the second yellow occurred because of Shagla stopped in turn three. Hess, Scott, Davies, Hall and Rhebergen were the leaders. Hess was not tested running the final two laps unchallenged with Scott second and Davies third.

David Scott was also on the pole for the Super Late Model feature with Darrell Bossard alongside. Robbie Blair was in row two with Chris Hackett. Scott won the race to turn one and using the top of speedway began putting distance between himself and the rest of the field. John Lacki, Andy Boozel, George LaBarberra, John Volpe and Jason Morell were all tangled up in the exit of turn two for the first caution with three laps in the books. Scott, Bossard, Blair, Chris Hackett and Ron Davies were the restart leaders. Blair moved up behind Scott on the restart and the pair ended lap four first and second as the second yellow occurred this time for Chuck Parker in turn four. Scott and Blair were the class of the field after the restart. After contact with LaBarberra Volpe spun to a stop in turn two for caution number three. Blair lost second to Ron Davies on the restart then slipped to fourth as Dave Hess Jr. moved into third. With Scott up high and Davies in the middle groove and Hess waiting for a break the top three ended half the race. Davies would get under Scott but Scott would pull away coming out of the corners. On lap twenty one all of the leaders were in heavy lap traffic. Davies closed with Scott again on lap twenty five but could not get enough of a bite in the low groove to complete the pass. Scott never gave up the high groove winning the event just a car length ahead of Ron Davies.

Jason Genco and Bob Dorman started first and third and were one and two at the end of the first lap of the Crate Late Model feature. Mark Thrasher was third followed by Max Blair and Matt Cobb. Blair was third by the end of lap six and closing with the second place Dorman. Blair caught Dorman just the caution flew for Skip Jackson in turn four. Blair beat Dorman into turn one to right up behind Genco. After a couple attempt so pass Genco Blair settled into second. Jackson had more trouble and cautioned out of the event on lap thirteen. The first restart was waived off and the second accepted by Starter Mark Matthews. Ryan Scott and Dorman made contact spinning Dorman around on the front stretch while Brian Haggerty and AJ MacQuarrie were spinning in turn four. Genco continued to lead after the restart. As the two to go signal was given Genco slowed with obvious mechanical problems ending his race allowing Blair to assume the lead. Ryan Scott was second with Thrasher third and Cobb fourth. As the white was about to fall MacQuarrie spun between turns one. Blair easily controlled the restart for the win with Scott several car lengths back in second.

Wade Watson started on the pole and was the leader of the Super Sportsman feature when the yellow flew for Tom Kosinski. On the restart Allen Haskins and Andy Melice spun for caution two. Watson led lap two then gave way to Kelly Frederes on lap three. Frederes had caught the back of the field on five then one lap later Melice was once more stopped on the track. Frederes, Tim Card, 2012 Sportsman Champ Dan Nocero Jr., Don McGuire and Jake Eller were the leaders. At the half way point Frederes led Card by ten car lengths. With two laps remaining Eller could not avoid a spun Haskins setting up a two lap dash for the win. Nocero was unable to keep up with Frederes giving Frederes his second win in the last Sportsman event of the season.

2012 Super Challenger Champ Chad Bender started on the pole and led every lap winning his ninth of the season.
