By Glenn Slocum

Saturday July 20th, 2013 Busti, NY: Rain was reported all around the speedway but just a light sprinkle occurred before the qualifying heats were run. The Community Bank E-Mod Special was the featured event and there were 26 E-Mods on hand to collect. Rich Michael Sr. started fourth and charged to the front passing early leader Alex Froman on lap five of the twenty-five lap event for the win his third of the season.

Dick Barton led from the initial green to win his 78th Super Late Model feature at Stateline now just one behind all-time win leader Bobby Schnars. The win helped Barton extend his Super Late Model point lead. Barton has been the Stateline Point Champion nine times,

Mark Ramsey visited the Street Stock victory lane winning the feature from his fourth starting spot. Ramsey took control with 5 laps remaining.

Michael Kosinski took the Super Sportsman lead on lap two beating last week’s feature winner Jim Kibbe to the line. Kosinski went on to win the event his second win of the season.

Jason Genco led every lap for his second Crate Late Model win out running point leader Damian Bidwell.

A lap car ended the fight for the Limited Late Model win as early leader Nathan Short and runner-up point leader Ryan Scott tangled with the lap car ending their race for the win setting Steve Kania up for his third victory.

Travis Darling, Casey Burch and Coty Schauers were three wide at the line with two laps remaining in the Super Challenger feature and Darling came out on top for his second win.

On the initial lap of the Street Stock feature Nick Reale found the turn one wall causing a complete restart. Gary Fisher and Jason Covey were on the front row with point leader Brian Crandall third and Mark Ramsey fourth. Fisher led by a bumper on the first green circuit then it was Covey by a nose as the yellow flew for Victor Earle, Earl Harvey and Dennis Asel. Covey was out in front on the restart with Fisher second, Crandall third and Ramsey fourth. With five laps completed Ramsey was third with Crandall fourth and the leaders were entering lap traffic. The third yellow appeared with seven laps complete for Paul Nelson and Todd Bacon. Covey controlled the restart and one lap was completed before the fourth yellow appeared this time for Elaine Best stopped sideways in turn three. Covey led on the restart but Ramsey moved alongside and led lap 10 just before yellow number five. Covey lost second to Fisher and with two laps remaining yellow six occurred. The leaders for the restart were Ramsey, Fisher, Covey, Mark Thompson and Richard Wojtowicz. Ramsey held on the win his first of the season.

Last week’s feature winner Jim Kibbe was on the pole for the Super Sportsman feature. Second starting Michael Kosinski took the lead from Kibbe on lap two. At the end of five laps Kosinski was out in front by ten car lengths with Kibbe second and Ron Burgun a distant third. Lap traffic became and issue on lap eight allowing Kibbe to close with Kosinski. With two to go the first yellow of the race occurred when Alan Yarbrough stopped facing the wrong way in turn four. Kosinski handled the Kibbe challenge on the restart winning the race by two car lengths for his second win of the season.

Alex Froman started on the Community Bank E-Mod Special pole and led the first circuit. Rich Michael Sr. started fourth and was second on lap three followed by Butch Southwell. Michael continued his charge taking the lead on lap five. Darren Tarabori, Ron Seeley and Dan Sasso tangled on lap six for the first yellow. Michael began to build a lead after the restart then the second yellow collected Brian Wilson, Leonard Enos and T J Downs. Seven laps were complete and Michael was the leader followed by Froman, Nathan Hill, Butch Southwell and Dan Davies. David Scott joined the top five on lap nine as Davies slipped to sixth. The third yellow appeared after Wilson’s car erupted in steam. At the half way mark Michael’s had a ten car length advantage over Froman and Butch Southwell trailed Froman my eight car lengths. Chad Carlson lost the handle with nineteen laps down for yellow four. Six laps remained for Michael. As the starter showed the two laps to go sign Justin Chaddock spun for yellow five. No one could catch Michael over the final two laps giving him the win his third of the season.

Dick Barton was the early Super Late Model leader taking full advantage of his front row starting spot. David Scott was second followed by Scott Gurdak, Andy Boozel and Chris Hackett. The first 10 laps were all green and Barton was in cruise mode extending his lead on every lap. Scott running second was also all alone with nearly a half lap lead on the rest of the field. The battle was for third between Gurdak and Boozel. The lap car of Doug Eck slowed the leader momentarily but Scott was unable to take advantage. Barton caught the tail end of the field with two laps to go but his commanding lead let him cruise to his 78th Super Late Model feature win just one back of all time leader Bobby Schnars.

Jason Genco was on the pole for the Crate Late Feature and led the first two laps then a yellow flew for Garret Stephen stopped against the concrete in the exit of turn two. Last week’s winner Scott Gurdak was second with Cody Mason third and point leader Damian Bidwell fourth. By lap six Bidwell was third and Joe Buccola fourth. Dave Shagla stopped up against the turn two wall causing caution number two with fifteen laps complete. Genco was still the leader with Bidwell second and Gurdak alongside. Gurdak lost two spots on the restart letting Buccola and Mason by. Genco won pulling away for his second win in 2013.

Nathan Short brought the Limited Late Model field around to Spanky Hall’s green flag and became the race leader. Steve Kania was second with point leader Ryan Scott third. Scott grabbed the runner up spot just before the yellow flew for Wade Watson stopped in turn four. Hall waived off the first attempted restart and accepted the second. Jake Finnerty spun on the restart collecting Bill Reeves for yellow two. Kania and Scott were side by side on lap eight for second with Scott coming out on top for the spot one lap later. Short was five car lengths ahead Scott. Scott was able to slowly close with Short and was just a car length behind with five laps remaining. Lap traffic changed the race as the white flew, Short and Scott both tried to pass the lap car of Wade Watson causing all three to make contact taking out Scott and Short for caution three. Kania was the benefactor assuming the lead with Steve Moynihan second. Kania led the final circuit for his fourth win of the season.

Coty Schauers led the early laps of the Super Challenger feature and with two laps to go Casey Burch, the point leader, and Travis Darling were three wide with Schauers at the line. The yellow flew setting up a two lap dash for the win with Darling beating Burch to the finish by a car length.
