MATT SHEPPARD WINS BACK-TO-BACK NIGHTS; NEXT WEEK THE CARS GO TOPLESS 

WEEDSPORT, NY_ It was another action packed Sunday night at Cayuga County Fair Speedway as Taylor Rental of Auburn and LaFleur Lumber presented Dave Farney's Jr. Flagger show and Family Autograph Night. This was one of the more popular events of the season for fans as drivers and cars lined the front stretch. Fans of all ages were encouraged to take to the track to meet and greet their favorite drivers during this rare up-close opportunity. Local DARE officers Paul Benton and John Nedza were on hand to throw t-shirts to an eagerly awaiting crowd. Fans that joined them at the official DARE car on display were awarded with other great prizes such as DARE stickers and coloring books.

As race fans enjoyed the side-by-side racing action they may have noticed a few extra flags waving commands to the drivers as it was Dave Farney's Jr. Flagger night. Under the watchful eye of Cayuga County Fair Speedway head starter Dave Farney a number of junior starters took to their custom built flag stand to flag on the action of the night. Cayuga County Fair Speedway General Manager Cory Reed welcomed flaggers from neighboring tracks to join CCFS to participate in this exciting event and to receive a limited edition junior flagger t-shirt.

In addition to the off track excitement on Sunday night there was plenty of on track excitement as Matt Sheppard won for the second time of the weekend on DIRTcar Northeast soil, taking the 35-lap DIRTcar big block Modified feature. Sheppard was also a winner on Saturday night at Canandaigua Speedway. Finishing second was Jimmy Phelps followed by Steve Paine, who was the leader in the early stages of the event. Fourth was Danny Johnson while Billy Dunn finished fifth.

Ricky Newton picked a good time to win his first ever Cayuga County Fair Speedway feature winning the 25-lap DIRTcar Sportsman main event. Finishing second was Jim Spano, who gave Newton a run for his money in the later stages of the event. Third was Greg Mrzywka followed by Adam Hilton and Robert Humphreys.

Chris Fisher took home the victory in the DIRTcar Stock Car feature. Second was Frank Burnell followed by Andy Fisk, Mike Welch and Mike Rasbeck. In the 20-lap Mod Lites feature, Justin Crisafulli was the winner. Finishing second was Andrew Schartner followed by Clayton Brewer. Finishing fourth was Doug Williams and fifth was Matt Magner. In the BattleKarz feature, Nick Werner was the winner. Second was Lanson Albanese and third was Tim Dunn. Fourth was Chris Bonoffski and fifth was Bill Werner.
