OSWEGO, NY -Out of 93 Sportsman entries, four drivers have scored a checkered flag during NAPA Super Dirt Week. Robert Bublak, Will Shields, Dave Constantino, and Ryan Stabler claimed the four Sportsman Quad 15 qualifiers on Friday night, solidifying their spots in Sunday’s show.

Bublak led wire-to-wire in the first Sportsman Quad 15, holding off Bob Henry, Andrew Buff, James Michael Friesen, and Andrew Smith. Henry and Buff swapped spots a number of times, never letting Bublak get more than six car lengths away, but Bublak held strong for the win. Polesitter Dave Marcuccilli opted to start at the tail of the field, keeping his car away from any possible trouble.

Shields had a solid run in this event a year ago with an eighth place finish in the 75-lap finale, and continued his success into 2018. Shields led all 15 in the second Sportsman Quad, going relatively unchallenged the entire distance. Martin Pelletier held off Kyle Inman for second, while Jessica Power and Pablo Pascarella completed the top five.

Constantino played hard defense to win Sportsman Quad 15 number three. While Constantino led the whole distance, Connor Cleveland spent much of the race hunting the #7 DKM, even poking a nose out front on a number of restarts. However, Constantino held on for the win, with Cleveland, Daryl Nutting, Robert Delormier, and AJ Lloyd filling the first five spots.




Ryan Stabler ran away and hid with the final Sportsman Quad 15, ditching the field over the span of the event to claim the the victory. Jeremy Pitts held off the consistent advances of Tyler Thompson for the runner up spot, with Alan Fink and Brianna Ladoucer finishing fourth and fifth.
