Cool night greets hot action at Laird

Friday, August 15, 2014   by: Brad Coccimiglio

The top two drivers in the Factory Stock division points standings at Laird International Raceway showed exactly why they are in that position on Thursday night.

Jason Praysner maintained his lead atop the division with an important feature win, but gaining ground was tough as J.P. DelPaggio took second and continues to sit in second spot in the points standings. John Ross finished third in the feature.

In the Super Late Model division, Steve Baraluk led the first 13 laps of the feature race only to have car issues end his night early. Rob Hiiemaa would eventually take the checkered flag for the feature win ahead of Kevin Errington and divisional points leader Keith King.

The Laird Modified division saw Nick Kozak make a return and pick up the feature win. Kozak drove the 92 car after original driver Justin Jones saw his night end early following the heat race. Track officials ended Jones night after an incident following the heat race. Keenan Spurway took second.

The Factory Four division saw Corey Carbone pick up the feature win. Last week’s feature winner, John Carter took second while Brent Fewchuk was third.

With just two cars, the Xtreme Four feature was cut down to 10 laps from the originally scheduled 15. Jamie Wilson took the checkered flag with Damon Dubas finishing second.

Action continues at Laird with a full race program on Aug. 21.
