2015 Racing Season

Friday, May 22, 2015 Racing ~ Purdy Racing Night

Join us for Purdy Racing Night on Friday, May 22! Fan Appreciation for CRSA Spints and 4 cylinder Trucks will be held during intermission.

Due to persistent showers, management at I-88 Speedway was forced to cancel the racing program on Friday, May 15, after the completion of the heat races. All rain checks will be honored on Friday, May 22 as the CRSA 305 Sprint Cars come to town for a complete show. Also on the card will be the rained out features for the Greg Page Construction Modifieds, Chambers and O'Hara Sportsmen, Olum's Street Stocks, Xcel 600 cc Modifieds and The 4 Cylinder Trucks. New entries will be allowed for the rained out features. The Vernooy's Automotive Excellence IMCA Modifieds will have the night off for an Empire Series Tour race and will make up their rained out feature at a date to be determined.

General admission for fans without rain checks will be $10.

Mike Mahaney of King Ferry took the early lead over front row partner Otego's J.R. Hurlburt at the start of the Greg Page Construction Modified feature. With Mahaney and Hurlburt in front, Sheffield MA's Andy Bachetti ran third with defending track champion Brett Tonkin of Tunkhannock PA fourth.

On lap two Tonkin slipped past Bachetti into third with Jim Mahaney, also of King Ferry, fifth. By lap six Mahaney had opened a three car length lead over Hurlburt with the top seven cars running single file. Mahaney extended his lead to a half straightaway by lap ten and by lap thirteen begins to enter lapped traffic.

The first caution of the event waved at the halfway point on lap fifteen when Cortland's Nick Nye spun in turn two. On the ensuing restart, Mahaney retains the lead as Hurlburt moves to the outside lane as does fourth running Bachetti. Using the outside line, Bachetti gets a run on Tonkin coming off turn two and moves into third place on lap seventeen.

While Bachetti and Tonkin were racing for third, the leaders had opened a ten car length lead over Bachetti and Jim Mahaney passed Tonkin for fourth place. With five laps remaining Mahaney had opened a half straightaway lead over Hurlburt with Bachetti starting to reel in Hurlburt.

Pole sitter Anthony Perrego of Montgomery NY took the lead at the start of the Greg Page Construction Modified feature at I-88 Speedway on Friday night. Third starting Shaun Walker worked under Edmeston's Paul Jensen in the race for second while defending Modified track champion Brett Tonkin used the bottom of the speedway and moved into fourth place under Mike Mahaney who was running the outside. By lap two Perrego had a half straightaway lead over Jensen with Masonville's Walker running third, Mahaney fourth and Tonkin fifth.

Mahaney of Kings Ferry continued to use the outside line and moved into third coming off turn two on lap five. Perrego checks out while Mahaney pressured Jensen on the inside before taking second on lap ten off turn four. Tunkhannock PA's Tonkin slipped under Jensen down backstretch on lap 11 to move into third.

At the halfway point Perrego led by half a track, with Mahaney second Tonkin third, Sheffield MA's Andy Bachetti had worked his way into fourth and Mitch Gibbs was running fifth.

The first caution of the race waved on lap 22 when Darwin Greene slowed in turn. Four. Perrego leads with Mahaney second, Tonkin third, Bachetti fourth and Gibbs fifth. Shaun Walker pitted under caution.

On the restart Bachetti took to outside on while Perrego opened up another big lead. With five laps remaining the front end of Mahaney's ride collapsed bringing his car to a stop on the front stretch resulting in the final caution of the race.

At the finish it was Anthony Perrego taking the win with Tonkin finishing second, Bachetti third, North Norwich's Gibbs fifth and Nick Nye of Cortland fifth.

"We definitely had a good car tonight. Starting on the pole makes it pretty easy. We've never been good enough to even finish in the top five here. We've had a few good runs but that was the best this thing's been here. I could almost flat foot it around..." Perrego said in his victory lane interview.
