REED AND RAIN TOP WALL STADIUM TWIN MODIFIED RACES SATURDAY
WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Two time and defending Freehold Ford Modified stock car driving champion Steven Reed of Jackson and a sudden downpour later in the evening topped the scheduled Twin 35 lap Modified main events at Wall Stadium Speedway Saturday night. The rain, which suddenly began falling just after 9:00 P.M., also claimed a companion 25-lapper for the O’Shea Auto Repair Factory Stocks.
Reed then raced on to the emotional win with Modified Rookie Blake Barney an impressive second. Jackson’s Jason Treat, who recovered from an early race pit stop, was impressive in finishing third with Shaun Carrig of Little Falls and Mongeau wrapping up the top five.
“It is real tough to win here,” Reed said after his initial win of the season. “This is for everyone who kept asking when we would get our first win. I appreciate you coming to the track and if you keep coming back we’ll keep trying to get wins.”
Taking the lead on the sixth lap Mike Alcaro of West Milford won the 25-lap feature race for the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars. Louie Keraitis of Toms River, Howell’s Robert French, Nick Van Wickle of Edgewater Park and Artie Pedersen of Center Moriches, N.Y. completed the top five.
Keraitis was victorious in a 15-lapper for the visiting Micro Stocks. The Factory Stock race was stopped with nine laps complete by the sudden downpour.
