Andy Bachetti took home his eighth Greg Page Construction Modified Feature Winner's trophy on Neighbors Insurance Night at I-88 Speedway. Bachetti, of Sheffield MA, started 12th in the 20 car field and worked his way to the front taking the lead when Afton's Kurt Decker's engine expired while leading on lap 15.

"Just glad this car's back to the way it was. It was a pretty hard hit, we put a clip on the nose of it and we weren't sure if it was going to be as good as it was. Right now it's pretty good," said Bachetti in victory lane.

Kurt Decker and Chris Bushnell, of Cortland ran side by side at the start of the race with Decker leading lap one by a wheel with Binghamton's Ken Titus third.

Lap three it was Decker by one car length over Titus while Bachetti was working the outside running in sixth place.

By lap five Decker had opened a three car length lead over Bushnell with Titus running third, Tonkin fourth and Bachetti up to fifth.

Decker pulls out to a half straightaway lead over Bushnell as Bachetti switches to the bottom and moves into fourth place.

On the tenth lap Bachetti worked under Titus to take over third as Decker opens over a half straightaway lead over Bushnell with Bachetti on Bushnell's back bumper in third. Four laps later Bachetti passed Bushnell coming off turn four to take over second.

On lap fifteen the caution came out as Decker breaks while leading putting Bachetti in the lead.

At the halfway point for the restart, Bachetti led with Bushnell second, Titus third, King Ferry's Mike Mahaney fourth and Tonkin fifth.

When the race went back to green Bachetti pulled away from the field as Bushnell, Titus and Mahaney battled for second through fourth.

Using the high side to his advantage, Poirier took the lead in front of a three wide battle between Hebing, Barney and Aaron Ott coming off turn four. Barney came out second with Ott third and Hebing settling in to fourth.

Alan Barker took the lead with two laps remaining in the Greg Page Construction Modified feature on Klinger Power Sports Night at I-88 Speedway and went on to take his first Modified feature win at the track. Barker, of Norwich, capitalized on heavy lapped traffic in front of Mitch Gibbs coming off turn four to take the lead using the high side off the turn.

"It feels really good to finally maintain throughout the feature. We got right up to second and I said 'Here we come' and then it stopped going. Nick (Nye) went by me and Mitch (Gibbs) went by and we went outside to see if we could carry some momentum and it worked. The car just stuck with us tonight," said Barker in Victory Lane after the race.

Afton's Kurt Decker took the lead at the start of the race from the outside front row starting position. The first caution of the race came on the second lap when Carbondale PA's Alex Tonkin clipped an implement tire on the inside of turn two resulting in a chain reaction accident which sent current point leader, Andy Bachetti to the pits. Bachetti, of Sheffield MA, was unable to continue after contact with the turn two wall.

When Carbondale PA's Brett Tonkin slowed in turn two the caution came out setting of a lap six restart. Nick Nye, of Cortland, took advantage of the restart and grabbed the lead putting Decker in second, Norwich's Mitch Gibbs third and Barker fourth.

At the halfway point Nye continued to lead with Gibbs running second, Barker third and Mike Mahaney, of King Ferry, fourth. Two laps later Gibbs slipped under Nye to take the lead coming off turn four.
