STSS Race Day at All-Tech: ‘Sunshine Swing’ Day No. 3 Storylines, Stars & Sleepers

LAKE CITY, FL- It’s another STSS Race Day!

It’s Day No. 3 of the ‘Sunshine Swing’ for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco.

Phoenix, N.Y.’s Larry Wight recorded his first career STSS victory, claiming $5,000 and Night No. 2 of the ‘Sunshine Swing.’

Once again, the stakes rise in the third edition, as the Modifieds chase a $6,000 payday in a 40-lap feature.

THE STORYLINES




Ransomville, N.Y.’s Erick Rudolph continues his strong performances in the Sunshine State, picking up a runner-up finish in Night No. 2, moving him to second in ‘Sunshine Swing’ points, five markers out of first.

Rudolph sits behind Billy Pauch Jr. in the ’22 ‘Sunshine Swing’ standings. The Frenchtown, N.J., native backed up his Night No. 1 runner-up with another podium run on Night No. 2.

Rochester, N.Y.’s Danny Johnson has demonstrated a resurgence with the Tim Gibson-owned No. 27J. ‘The Doctor’ now has two top-10 finishes to his credit this week.

THE STARS

Frenchtown, N.J.’s Billy Pauch Jr. continues to run well in the state of Florida. Back-to-back podium finishes have the ‘Kid’s Kid’ looking down on the rest of the field in ‘Sunshine Swing’ standings. He has also claimed heat race wins each of the first two nights.

Guilderland, N.Y.’s Marc Johnson has made his presence well known in the first two nights of the ‘Sunshine Swing.’ Top-10 finishes in each of the first two nights give Johnson a strong base to build toward his second career STSS victory.

Larry Wight continues his strong showings at All-Tech Raceway. Wight now has top-fives in four of his five races at the half-mile speedway. Wight joins Rudolph in the chase to catch Pauch Jr. at the top of the standings.

THE SLEEPERS

Horseheads, N.Y.’s Tyler Siri has put together two impressive performances to open the ‘Sunshine Swing.’ Siri has been one of the fastest cars in heat races for each of the first two nights and translated it to a seventh-place run on Night No. 2.

Pipersville, Pa.’s Danny Bouc made massive gains from Wednesday to Thursday. Bouc was the last car to qualify on the opening night, to making the redraw. Bouc will look to continue the improvements to find himself in contention the rest of the week.

David Schilling continues to impress with his ‘Weekend Warrior’ LS 427 engine, picking up a sixth-place run on night two and two appearances in the Beyea Custom Headers redraw. The East Greenbush, N.Y., native continues to showcase the new STSS engine package well.

ALSO IN ACTION

The STSS Crate 602 Sportsman will also see their stakes raise on Night No. 3. The Crate 602 Sportsman will race for 30-laps around the half-mile for a $2,000 top prize.

Delaware’s Scott Hitchens claimed the win on Night No. 2 pending further technical inspection.
