It wasn’t Indianapolis and the yard of bricks, but it didn’t matter to Shane Pecore as he jumped out of his Sportsman near victory stage at Oswego Speedway on Sunday afternoon.
Pecore, with a last lap pass of Robert Bublak Jr., captured the biggest win of his career in winning the Chevy Performance 75.
He climbed from the car, dropped to his knees and kissed the ground.
Shane Pecore had won at Oswego.
Pecore said, “We are a very small team that has accomplished big things. This is a dream come true. I’ve finished second or third at the Mile, but haven’t really done well here.”
On his pass for the lead he said, “I knew where Rob was going and he was keeping to the bottom between three and four. I saw him down there and that lapped car. I knew he was going to be held up so I just rode the top. It paid off.”
Throughout the race Pecore tried lap after lap and at times pulled alongside, but couldn’t complete the pass.
Shane said, “Whenever I showed him a nose he would steal the line from me. I really think I was better in lapped traffic and had better restarts today.”
Pecore said, “I’ve had a good year. We won the series opener at Fulton and this caps the year for us. We are probably fourth in points”
He’ll be at Brockville this weekend and trails Kevin Root, Brad Rouse and Dave Marcuccilli in the point standings. It really doesn’t matterwhat the outcome is as Pecore has celebrated with the biggest win of the year.
