Last year on May 22, 2021, the winners at Fonda were Mike Mahaney (Sunoco Modifieds), Chad Edwards (Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman), Jeremy Tyrrell (Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman), Luke Horning (Algonkin Motel Pro Stocks), Ken Hollenback and Slappy White (Fonda Fair Four Cylinders).
“It is so cool to be back here in Fonda’s victory lane,” Mahaney told Mimi Lazzaro after his win. “It has been harder for me to win a regular show here than other times that we have been here, and I have been able to win. We have been struggling here at Fonda and working hard to try to adapt to the track, but I have a great group of guys on my crew and great sponsors that are behind me, and I think we finally got it.”
