Saturday Rain Forces Delay of Father’s Day Dollars at Land of Legends

Land of Legends Raceway - Kyle Coffey, Justin Haers

CANANDAIGUA, NY – With qualifying events already complete for all five classes, rains arrived from the south at 7:55 p.m. in Land Of Legends Raceway’s latest ‘Saturday Spectacular presented by A-Verdi Storage Containers. The wet weather stayed around in force for 20 minutes, just enough to end the racing action as the track became too slick for further competition.
Twenty-three 305s signed in for round #2 of the SuperGen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprint Car Series in Canandaigua. Heat winners for the winged warriors were all-time LOLR sprint winner Darryl Ruggles, female flash Alysha Bay and last week’s fairgrounds feature winner Brandyn Griffin.

The redraw took place in the pit area when the rains hit. Bay and Jason Whipple selected front row starting positions in the 20-lap A-Main that has been rescheduled for Aug. 14 when the CRSA Series returns to Land of Legends a third time in another Saturday Spectacular.
Twenty-two Pepsi Big-Blocks, 34 Speed Connection Sportsman, 17 Eldredge & Sons Scrap Recycling Street Stocks and 11 Lloyd’s Contracting Hobby Stocks were also on hand for a big night of racing at the historic half-miler. Sportsman and Hobby Stock qualifiers are scheduled to make up their features next week, June 26, while the Big-Block and Street Stock contenders are scheduled to run their main event make-ups on July 10.

Prior to postponement, two major incidents took place in the heat races. In the first CRSA preliminary, Kyle Pierce flopped onto his side in turn four on lap two. The safety crew righted his machine but a fuel leak forced Pierce to sit out the rest of the qualifier.

In the follow-up incident, rookie Sportsman driver Brandon Grover spun and made contact with the fourth turn wall in heat two. He was unable to return to the track the remainder of the night.

The end of June brings with it Mid-Season Championship Night at Land Of Legends Raceway presented by Pepsi & Geneva Club Beverage. The mighty Pepsi Big-Block Modifieds hit the Canandaigua clay for an extended 40-lap feature event with Speed Connection Sportsman (2 features), Mike Emhof Motorsports 305 Sprint Car, Eldredge & Sons Scrap Recycling Street Stock and Lloyd’s Contracting Hobby Stock (2 features) action filling out the fast five-star show.

A Girl Scout Troop 60487 Benefit raffle will be held during the night with practice sessions kicking off on-track activity at 5:30pm. Heat race qualifiers for all five divisions go green at 6:30pm with pit gates open at 3:30pm and spectators gaining admittance into the Ontario Co. Fairgrounds main grandstands at 5 o’clock.

And right on the heels of next Saturday’s Spectacular, the Land of Legends comes alive for a dynamic Super DIRTcar Series / Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprint doubleheader on July 1. Honeoye Auto Parts & Emerson Oil Company/Castrol present the mid-week twin-bill with Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 4 the charity of choice to kick off the holiday.

A strong Canandaigua contingent including Matt Sheppard, Erick Rudolph, Justin Haers and Peter Britten will be looking to defend home soil against fellow traveling series stars chasing top dollar in the headline ‘Liberty 100.’ Past LOLR winged winners Jason Barney, Davie Franek and Paulie Colagiovanni top the current ESS points chart and this talented trio is expected back when Canandaigua hosts round #2 of the 2021 PJC Spray Foam CNY Speedweek on Thursday.
