Fuller Scores Back To Back DIRTcar 358 Modified Wins At Can-Am

By:  Tim Baltz

LAFARGEVILLE, NY –  Active-Duty Military were honored Friday night at the Can Am Speedway in Lafargeville New York and were treated to some exciting racing in 5 divisions, which saw three drivers go back to back, while two others took their first wins of the year, on DP Bartlett and Sons Plumbing Heating and Air Conditioning night.

Brockville’s Jarrett Herbison was the dominant factor at the start of the Whiteboro Plowshop DIRTcar 358 Modified feature. Herbison jumped out to a big lead to start the race, with Ryan Bartlett, Dan Beachard, Tyler Meeks and Scott Webb on the charge behind him. On lap 9 Bartlett would take over the lead after a battle with Herbison and would start to pull away from the field. Bartlett had a stout car but Tim Fuller started 12th on the grid and would move into 2nd on lap 15, after getting by Scott Webb and would run down Ryan Bartlett. On lap 17 Fuller made the move to take the lead for good, as he used the bottom to get by and would start to pull away. From there it was no contest as Tim Fuller would drive away to score his 2nd straight win. Bartlett would take the runner up spot, over Scott Webb Tyler Meeks and Billy Dunn.

Rookie Brennan Moore would jump out to a comfortable lead at the start of the 20-lap Bob Johnson Auto Group DIRTcar Sportsman feature, over Billy Eisle Jr., Jonathan Murphy, Tyler Stevenson and Dustin Hutton. As Moore continued his early race dominance, the driver on the move was Tyler Stevenson. The Watertown native would move to 2nd by lap 6 and was pressuring Moore for the lead. On lap 7 Moore got loose in turn 4 and Stevenson took advantage and grabbed the top spot. From this point on Stevenson was running fast as he pulled away, until lap 14 when the yellow flew for Tiger Chapman, who slowed on the back stretch. On the restart Stevenson continued to show how good his car was, but Mike Fowler was also on the move as he got to 2nd. Despite several perfect laps from Mike Fowler, Tyler Stevenson was not to be denied as he became the 3rd different winner in 3 races to start 2022. Fowler came across the line 2nd, while Josh Reome overcame early race struggles to finish 3rd. Gavin Eisle and Ryan Shanahan would complete the top 5.

Anthony St. Mary Jr. led the early portion of the 15 lap Marsha Gibbons TLC Real Estate Thundercar feature over Joe Orvis and Chuck Monica. On lap 3, opening day winner Justin Pope would charge to the lead, but opening day winner Joe Orvis was right there with him to move to 2nd. These two drivers would be the class of the field as they raced out to a commanding lead over Anthony St. Mary Jr., who was battling with Chuck Monica for 3rd. On lap 11 the yellow flew as OJ White lost a motor, which resulted in flames from underneath the car. White was not injured and flames were quickly extinguished. On the final restart Joe Orvis put the pressure on Pope for the lead as the top 2 once again drove away. On this night, it was Justin Pope taking his 2nd straight win, while Orvis crossed in the runner up spot for a second straight week. Anthony St. Mary Jr. Justin McIntyre and Chuck Monica filled out the top 5 finishers.

The comeback story of the year would have to go to Josh Verne Jr. in the Panther Frameworx 602 Crate Sprints. Logan Crisafulli would be the best car at the start of the 15-lap feature, over Ken Klinkowski and Jonah Mutton. Crisafulli would hold over a straightaway lead and it looked like the bad luck was finally over. Josh Verne Jr, had other plans as he charged to second on lap 9 but had work to do to catch the leader. By lap 12 Verne had made up the difference, as Crisafulli was trying to hold on. On lap 14 Verne would make the pass for the lead and drive on to score back-to-back wins. Crisafulli would cross in 2nd while Taylor Doxtator would cross in third.

Keegan Nier and Paul DeRuyter would stage a battle for the lead at the start of the Donath Motorworx Limited Sportsman. The top 2 would pull away from the field in the early going of the 12 lap feature. On lap 5 the red flew as Cole Perry and Joey Wilcox made contact on the backstretch, resulting in Wilcox spinning out. Holly Denard had no place to go and collided with Wilcox and flipped upside down. Denard was shaken in the crash, but would be ok. Wilcox was also uninjured in the wreck. When the green flew Keegan Nier would make the final 7 laps count, as he ran a perfect race and held off Paul DeRuyter to claim his first win of the season, with opening day winner Owen Nier crossing in third.

Next week the Can Am Speedway will be off for Memorial Day weekend, but will return on June 3rd with a full show, including the FABCO DIRTcar Pro Stocks, who make their 2nd Friday night appearance of the season.
