Sites Wins Second in a Row in NY Penn IMCA Modified Series at Woodhull

WOODHULL, NY – After day long rains, nobody expected racing to happen at the 1/3 mile Woodhull Raceway for the 2023 Close Racing Supply NY Penn IMCA Modified Series presented by M.R. Grafix…but the persistence of the track crew in not giving up and prepping the surface meant racing DID happen, and Eddie Sites won his second event of the season…in a wild finish.

Gary Roberts and Shawn Bruce brought the field to the green for the 25-lap feature event, with Roberts spinning in turn one, collecting Eddie Sites and Rodney Morgan. Rich Michael Jr took the lead on the restart as Bruce battled with Tyler Stoddard for third. Eddie Sites outdragged Michael on a lap 3 restart but the yellow flew for Brad Sites spinning on lap 5 to bunch the field once again. Rodney Morgan had a front end issue to bring out the next caution, and Jake Maynard snagged third from Tyler Stooddard before another yellow for Jacob McConell’s spin in turn four.

Eddie Sites and Michael Jr continued to battle for the lead through the second half of the race, with Sites fending off the challenges. Things got crazy on lap 23 when Sites went wide and Michael ducked underneath him, taking the lead as they both bounced over the cushion in turn three. Michael led across the line for the white flag, but went wide in turn one and Sites slid back underneath to retake the lead and nip Michael at the line for the win. Jake Maynard nipped Stoddard for third after a race long battle, with Bruce rounding out the top five.

Midosa USA Ltd 8 lap heat races were won by Eddie Sites and Tyler Stoddard, who beat Gary Roberts by a bumper at the finish.
