Tim Currier won the 35 lap Greg Page Construction Modified feature on Curtis Lumber Night at I-88 Speedway, but Brett Tonkin won the track championship by virtue of his third place finish. Currier, of Auburn, took the lead from Cortland's Nick Nye after a lap seven caution for Mitch Gibbs slowing with a flat tire.

With Currier in the lead, championship contender Brian Weaver's night came to an end on lap ten when the driver from Windsor pulled into the infield. Currier continued to lead as point leader Brett Tonkin slipped past Nye to take over second on lap 13. With a full straightaway lead, Currier entered lapped traffic on lap 16. Two laps later the caution came out when Edmeston's Paul Jensen slowed on the front stretch. During the caution period Mike Mahaney of King Ferry came to a stop with his car smoking heavily ending the night for Mahaney who came into the night in fourth place in the point race.

Three champions were crowned at I-88 Speedway on McDonald's Night on Friday. Alan Barker (Sportsmen) and Ralph Cuozzo Jr. (Empire Sport Trucks) capped their seasons by not only winning their division championship but also taking the win in their feature events. Doug Polhamus came up one spot short in the Street Stock feature but that was enough to capture the track championship.

Brett Tonkin of Carbondale PA entered the night with an 11 point lead over King Ferry's Mike Mahaney, 23 point lead over Mitch Gibbs and 24 point lead over Shaun Walker in the Greg Page Construction Modified division. With two races remaining any of the top four drivers were still in the hunt. Fifth place Brian Weaver, while not mathematically eliminated would be a long shot, trailing Tonkin by 38 points.

By virtue of handicapping Gibbs started fifth, Tonkin seventh, Walker tenth, Mahaney eleventh and Weaver thirteenth. At the drop of the green Dana Wagner of Trout Creek took the lead from his pole position start. After a lap three caution for Carbondale's Alex Tonkin stopping in turn two, the race went green through the halfway point with Wagner leading, Windsor's Bob Hamm running second, Gibbs third, Edmeston's Paul Jensen fourth and Walker fifth.

Shaun Walker took the lead from pole sitter Bob Hamm at the halfway point of the 30 lap Modified feature and went on to take his division leading third feature win of the year at I-88 Speedway. Hamm, of Windsor took the lead at the start of the 30 lap event before relinquishing the lead to Walker. The Masonville driver started eleventh on the grid and methodically picked his way to the front.

"The last couple of weeks we've been struggling, the track seems to have a little bit more bite in it" said Walker after the race. "We've been loosening it up and loosening it up and it hasn't been enough. Tonight we took a bigger swing at it after the heat and it seemed to work pretty good."

Mike Mahaney of King Ferry finished second with Otego's J.R. Hurlburt third, Hamm fourth and Brett Tonkin of Carbondale fifth.
