Wilson Wins First Career Street Stock Feature Before Rain Wins the Night

MALTA, NY – Joey Wilson won his first career Street Stock feature on Friday night at Albany-Saratoga. Wilson got out to the early lead and had to hold off Randy Miller who started 11th and worked his way to second in the early going. Miller tried to get around Wilson but the two made contact and Miller went pit side with a flat tire.

During the final lap of the 20-lap Street Stock feature, at about 8:30 p.m. rain started falling on the speedway. After a steady downpour for about five minutes, track officials were forced to postpone the rest of the evening’s feature due to the time it would take to dry the track. In addition, another round of showers was predicted for the area just an hour later.

Earlier in the evening 66 bikes were raffled off to children. The bicycles were donated by various race teams, fans, sponsors, crews and officials. Children were allowed to enter their name in the drawing for the bike of their choosing. After the bikes were awarded, the children, along with many of the people who donated the bikes, were allowed to parade their winning bikes in front of the main grandstands.

The makeup dates for the rained out features will be announced at a later date. Log onto www.albany-saratogaspeedway.com for further information.
