Matt Janczuk Triumphs Over Sportsman Field At Fulton – DTD Exclusive

By:  Steven Petty

FULTON, NY –  Matt Janczuk dominated the 30-lap Sportsman feature. With Janczuk up front and pulling away from the field, Garrison Krentz suffered a flat right rear tire to bring out the races’ first caution on lap six. Amy Holland and Cody Wolfe got together just two laps later to bring out the second caution of the night. Andrew Buff challenged Janczuk on the restart, but Janczuk was able to pull away. The field would slow down one more time on lap 22, as Ryan Shanahan came to a stop in turn three. Janczuk would cruise off the restart to grab the win, the tenth of his career at Fulton. Andrew Buff finished second for the second time during OktoberFAST. It was Buff’s second appearance on the Fulton highbanks. AJ Miller would round out the podium.

“This car has been awesome and glad to be back at Fulton Speedway”, stated race winner Matt Janczuk. “It feels really good to be here in victory lane in the month of October after giving one away last year”, Janczuk added. Janczuk was referring to leading the Sportsman Super DIRTcar Series race that Kyle Inman was able to win last season.
