Casey Burch Wins Seamens Auto Wrecking Super Challenger Special
Dutch Davies Makes it Two in Row Winning the Super Late Model Feature at Stateline Speedway

By Glenn Slocum

Saturday August 17th, 2013 Busti, NY: The Seamens Auto Wrecking Super Challenger Special was the featured event at Stateline Speedway but with just two nights of point racing remaining all of the racing intensified.

2012 Super Sportsman Champ Dan Nocero Jr. won his sixth feature of the season but still trails Jim Kibbe in the point standings.

Rich Michael Jr. continued to dominate the E-Mod division. Michael won their feature event his sixth win in seven appearances.

Chad Ruhlman passed point leader and defending Crate Late Model Champ Damian Bidwell just before the features half way mark for his first feature win of the season.

2012 Super Late Champion Dutch Davies made it two in a row winning the feature event. David Scott tested Davies several times and nearly completed the pass late in the event but jumped the heavy cushion allowing Davies to pull away.

Mark Ramsey was the Super Stock winner in a caution strewn feature event his second win of the season.

Ryan Scott took over the Limited Late Model point lead and the win column getting his fifth win of the season passing early leader Tyler Green for the win.

Super Challenger point leader Casey Burch made a late race pass of Tim Bender to win the Seamens Auto Wrecking Special. It was Burch's seventh win of the season.

Don McGuire caused the first caution of the Super Sportsman feature as lap two was starting. Michael Kosinski started on the pole and was the race leader with last year’s Champ Dan Nocero Jr. second and Matt Kosinski third. Nocero took the lead on the restart sending Michael Kosinski to second. Brent Crandall was fourth with point leader Jim Kibbe fifth. Mike Genco and Ron Burgun tangled in turn two for the second caution with eleven laps complete. Jim Kibbe was third after the restart chasing Nocero and Michael Kosinski. That was how the race ended. It was the sixth win for Nocero.

Steve Rex was leader on the first completed lap of the E-Mod feature, Butch Southwell led lap two and Rich Michael Jr. took control on lap three. Michael quickly began running away from the field and had a straight away lead over Southwell at the end of lap eight. The race was for second and Southwell, Leonard Enos and David Scott were all fighting for the spot. Southwell faded but point leader John Woodward Jr. joined the fray as the laps wound down. Scott grabbed second on the final circuit and Enos was nearly taken out by a spinning lap car. Michael won the race his 6th win in seven appearances.

Justin Smith and point leader Damian Bidwell were on the front row of the Crate Late Model feature and Bidwell was the first around. Justin Tatlow lost the handle on lap three collecting Joe Buccola and Bob Dorman for the first yellow. Dorman required a wrecker to return to the pits and Buccola left the speedway during the yellow. Luke Carlton had problems on the restart for yellow two. Chad Ruhlman was on the move after the restart coming to second. Justin Smith spun on lap seven collecting Jason Genco and Dave Shagla Jr. Ruhlman drove around Bidwell on the restart taking the lead just before the half way mark. Lap traffic became a factor on lap sixteen allowing Bidwell to closed with Ruhlman. Bidwell charged under Ruhlman with three laps remaining nearly regaining the lead but Ruhlman held on over the final laps for his first win of the season.

Dutch Davies and David Scott were one and two for the Super Late feature with Rich Gardner and Scott Gurdak in turn two and Doug Eck and Bump Hedman in row three. Davies got a huge jump on the start and easily led lap one. Scott was second with Gurdak third and Gardner fourth. Point leader Dick Barton was challenging for fifth from his ninth starting spot on lap five. At the half way mark Davies lead Scott by half a straight with Gurdak a distant third. Scott was able to close with Davies due to lap traffic but could not get close enough to attempt a pass. Barton continued to advance getting by Eck and moving up to challenge Gardner for fourth. Scott caught Davies on the white flag lap moved alongside in turn one then jumped the cushion allowing Davies to pull away. It was two in a row for Davies.

Mark Ramsey was the first to turn one in the Street Stock feature but a wreck on back stretch happened when Kyle Weilacher lost a left rear tire bringing out the yellow before the lap was completed for a complete restart of the event. Ramsey was again the first around with Jason Covey a close second and Richard Wojtowicz third. A spin by Mike Zemcik collecting Rodney Tomes brought out the second yellow. Four laps were complete with Ramsey out front, Covey second followed by Wojtowicz Dennis Asel and Gary Fisher. Point leader Brian Crandall was eighth. Two laps later Jason Bagdley spun in turn two for caution number three. Elaine Best spun in turn one with Todd Bacon and Tomes involved for caution four. Bagdley stopped up against the fence in turn three for caution five with nine of the fifteen laps complete. A spin by Victor Earle on lap eleven caused caution six. Ramsey took the win with Wojtowicz second and Covey third.

Tyler Green led the Limited Late Models around for the start of their feature event. Green Led the first circuit and Ryan Scott used the outside lane to pass Green on the second lap. John Cline Jr. and Nathan Short were third fourth. A lap five spin by Chad Schauers brought out the first and only yellow. Cline gained a spot on the restart taking second from Green. Short was fourth with point leader Steve Kania fifth. Scott finished the event for his fifth win.

Greg Rockwell and Butch Fish brought out the caution on the initial start of the Super Challenger Special. Travis Darling and Chad Bender were on the front row with Tim Fisher and point leader Casey Burch in row two. It was Bender, Burch and Darling at the end of lap one. Debris in turn four brought out the second caution just before the half way mark. The double file restart allowed Burch to pull alongside Bender for the restart with Darling third and Joe Beach, from twelfth, fourth. Bill Baker and Dustin Lamb ran afoul of the front stretch concrete on lap eight for caution three. Beach stopped in turn one for caution four with ten laps down. Bender was unable to hold back Burch on the restart. Burch led the final three laps for his seventh visit to victory lane.
