CANANDAIGUA, NY – The Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour saw a familiar face and a fresh new one in victory lane here at the Land Of Legends Raceway this past Saturday night.
Romulus, NY native Jon Kuleszo would blast off from his pole starting spot by virtue of his heat race victory in the 15 lap affair and would cruise to victory. Bob Johnson of Horseheads, NY would finish a distant second with former Nostalgia division driver Ed Lawrence of Seneca Falls third. North Augusta, Ontario’s Megan Ciglich would round out the Modified field with her career best finish in fourth.
All the action was taking place in the Nostalgia division with Rochester, NY’s Richard Taggart claiming his first ever career victory in 40 years of racing. The 70 year old Taggart dogged the Jim Hilimire owned machine driven by Craig Chisom for most of the event, finally making the pass for the win coming out of turn four, placing 5th on the track under starter Jim Olin’s checkers but first in his class. Chisom would be followed by heat winner Darrell Wilson of Merrickville, Ontario.
