SCISCO KID WINS SPORTSMAN 50 AT WALL SATURDAY
WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Kyle Scisco of Jackson wrestled his way to the front of the 21 car field and then raced home to the victory in the Center State Engineering Sportsman 50 lap race at Wall Stadium Speedway. It was the second All American auto Group Racing Series win of 2018 for the Scisco Kid. The Saturday night “Pack the Track Night” victory came before one of the biggest regular season crowds in recent memory.
Louie Keraitis of Toms River, who posted fast time in time trials early in the evening, jumped to the front from the start and paced the initial caution free 30 laps. Jarret DiGiantomasso of Jackson then made an outside lane pass into the lead as Scisco arrived in the top three. Scisco advanced in second on lap 36 and then raced side-by-side with DiGiantomasso before passing him for the win in the outside lane.
Eric Lane of Howell crossed the finish line third with Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor and Keraitis completing the top five.
“The outside lane was real fast tonight,” Scisco said after the win. “I like racing out there so I really like it when it works like it did tonight. They have been working hard to treat that outside lane with a traction agent and it makes for some racy conditions.”
Elliot Wohl of Beachwood dodged some early race trouble to get to the front quickly and then raced on to win the 25-lapper for the O'Shea's Auto Repair Factory Stocks. Championship race point leader Mike Montano of Freeport, N.Y., Ryan Flores of Davidson, N.C., Scott Riggleman of Manchester and Wall's Bryan O'Shea were second through fifth.
Neil Rutt III of Toms River took command of the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks in the second half of the race from his girlfriend Darianne McLaren of Edison and then raced on to the win. Mike Lavery of Orangeburg, N.Y., A.J. Jadacki of Farmingdale, Wall's Rob Longo and McLaren filled out the official top five.
Mike Alcaro of West Milford was impressive in winning the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars 25-lapper. Brothers Noah and Glen Korner, both from Connecticut, were second and third as Rob Hyer of Port Monmouth and Luke Marzano wrapped up the top five.
Joey Payne was also impressive in winning the 25-lap race for the touring Three Quarter Midgets. Jeff Kot, Ryan Tidman, Joey Bailey and Matt Janisch were second through fifth.
Norman Lane of Howell won the Destruction Derby for 8 cylinder cars and Rob Lane of Toms River was the 4 cylinder car event.
