Special to the Record

A surprise visit from the Old Time Racing Association highlighted a great night of racing at Saratoga Speedway on Saturday.

Due to dark clouds looming over the track, only two heat races and one main event were given to all fields. In the Motorcycle division #9 Jim Deas had an amazing night, setting fast time in qualifying, winning both heats, and leading all 12 laps of the main event to take a clean sweep.

#89 Gregg Sagmoen had a great night in the I.M.C.A Modified division. Sagmoen won both heats but fell short in the main event, loosing his lead late in the race to #00 Rory Smith, who was racing Modifieds for the first time. Sagmoen’s great night moved him from last in the points race to first in the blink of an eye.

#72 Stewart Lee continued his main event dominance in the Bomber car class. After some early struggles, he found his way in the main event, taking the lead from #33 Brian Baltis on lap 19 of 25 en route to winning his second straight main event.

Eleven Dwarf cars took to the track for their first race night of the year. #89 Jim Meeres dominated the 25-lap main event, grabbing the lead on lap one and never looking back.

The Old Time Racing Association was a last-minute addition to the field, but even on short notice they put on a great display of racing. In their 20-lap main event #22 Larry Joyce, #11 Duane Zeinstra and #35 Kail Beck raced bumper to bumper, with Joyce holding the lead for the first half. However on lap 18, Zeinstra finally found his way around Joyce to take the win. Beck was second and Joyce third.

EXTRA LAPS This Friday marks round two of the Drifting Competition … the popular Crash to Pass boat race returns this Saturday while the Island Mini Stocks will make their first appearance of the year …
