"It's been a while" said Jim Mahaney after winning the Greg Page Construction Modified feature at I-88 Speedway on Friday night. "I don't know how to do this anymore. It's been since 2004, it's been a long time coming. We've been fighting this thing all year and it finally felt good tonight."

Mahaney, of King Ferry, started on the pole and led all 30 laps of the race, edging out Mitch Gibbs who put on a late race charge only to come up a half car length short.

The race went green until lap 24 when a caution for debris bunched the field for a restart with Mahaney leading, Steve Babicek, of Binghamton, second, Otego's J.R. Hurlburt third and Gibbs fourth. When the green came out Gibbs, of Norwich, slipped under Hurlburt to take over third while Mahaney opened a three car length lead over Babicek.

The race restarted with Susquehanna Pa.'s Darwin Greene leading Tonkin. Alex Tonkin, also of Carbondale Pa. was in third with Binghamton's Ken Titus fourth and Nick Nye, of Cortland running fifth.

When the race restarted a three car battle for sixth developed between Mitch Gibbs, Andy Bachetti and Mike Mahaney. After a three wide charge off turn four, Mahaney, of King Ferry, would take over sixth before passing Titus on lap six to break into the top five.

Mike Mahaney capitalized on a last lap caution to take his fifth Greg Page Construction Modified feature win of the season on Curtis Lumber and Fred's Body Shop Night at I-88 Speedway. With one lap remaining Norwich's Mitch Gibbs led Mahaney but as the leaders entered turn three the caution came out when Oxford's Rusty Smith spun in turn four. On the ensuing restart Gibbs pushed up the track in turn two allowing Mahaney, of King Ferry, to slip by and take the win.

"That was heartbreaking for Mitch Gibbs, having the right rear tire go down" said Mahaney in Victory Lane after the race. "Sometimes that's the way it goes. I've had it happen to me too, here. That's the way racing is. It really is a tough sport. It's not my favorite way to win."

Jim Mahaney took the lead at the drop of the green but front row partner Steve Babicek, of Binghamton, would slip under the King Ferry driver to lead the first lap. Babicek would open a half straightaway lead until the caution waved on lap three as Mahaney came to a stop in turn two.
