PITTSBURGH, PA - June 12, 2010 -
The Brougher's Machine Shop Fastrak Pro Late Model Crates 25 Lap Grand Prix saw
Greensburg PA's Daniel Angelicchio pick up his first win of the season and first
since 2008, and his third career win. Rocky Kugel led the first three laps before
Mike Pegher Jr. took over on a restart. Pegher seemed to have things under control
pulling to over a straightaway over fellow two time winner this season Kyle Lukon.
A caution flew on lap 15 for the stalled Justin Lamb. On the restart, Kyle Lukon
took over the lead as Pegher didn't seem to have the speed he had earlier. Then
suddenly on lap 17 Pegher broke a wheel coming off turn four bringing out the caution.
Lukon again grabbed the lead and opened up a bit of a margin. Angelicchio moved
past Rocky Kugel for second, and seem to be closing on Lukon quickly. Then on lap
21 Lukon got a flat tire slowed and brought out the yellow. On the restart Angelicchio
pulled away to lead the last four laps for the win. Kugel had his best run of the
season to finish second followed by Mike Reft, Dennis Niederriter, Dan Karalagas,
newcomer Joel Prosser, Laura Lukon, Darrell Dow, Mark Moats Sr. (who was subbing
for his son Mark Jr. who injured his arm in his heat), Ken Chernik, and newcomer
Ron Smithley. Mike Pegher Jr. and Daniel Angelicchio won the heats in the Crates.
Pete Loria took a wild end over end flip in the second heat on lap 2 while running
third in turn two. Pete was OK.
In the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic DIRTcar Super Late Models Cranberry Township PA's
John Flinner picked up his first win of the season. Outside pole sitter Mike Norris
grabbed the lead at the start and led the first three laps before a yellow for a
Tom Bateman spin. On the restart Norris continued to lead with Flinner hot on
his heels. Norris bobbled a bit in one and two and that was all the cagey veteran
Flinner needed to get by and take the lead. Flinner, who started 5th, opened up
a lead, but Norris was not missing a beat running the best race of his young career.
Flinner weathered yellows on lap 16 and on lap 24, to pick up the win his 27th at
PPMS. Norris had a career best to finish a strong second, followed by Lynn Geisler
(in a spec car), John Garvin (in his best ever PPMS run), Jared Miley from 12th,
Jason Rider, Mike Johnson, Brandon Burgoon, Ben Miley and Brandon Wearing. Jared
Miley and point leader Mike Johnson won the heats. It was Flinner's first win since
August of 2009, and since the death of his daughter, who he dedicated the win to
and also to his mother, who has been ill.
The Miley RV Service UMP-Modifieds had Daryl Charlier, Midway PA end weeks of close
finishes to pick up his first win of the season. Charlier took advantage of a pole
starting spot to lead the entire 12 laps to the checker. Mike Basich, after missing
a couple weeks, finished a strong second followed by Clayton Kennedy, Kari Gasser,
Tom Martineck, Vince Laboon, Bruce Driestadt, Kevin Miller, Willy Briggs, and George
Nicola. J.E. Stalder and Tom Martineck grabbed the heats.
In the Sunoco Race Fuels DIRTcar Cadets. Chris Schneider Creighton PA, made his
first start of the season a winning one. Schneider started fourth and took the lead
on lap one and held off a pesky Pat Weldon grab the win. Gary Koteles was third
followed by Bob Heim, Bob Schwartzmiller, Craig Koteles, Russ Valponi, Tyler Fox
, Simmons and Bill Robertson. Joey Koteles and Chris Schneider took the two heats
. Schneider was driving the #8B usually driven by Bernie Blair. Point leader and
three in row winner Jake Simmons started last and worked his way to fourth when
he hit the wall on lap 14.
The Miley Car Wash DIRTcar Hobby Stocks saw Brian Huchko McDonald PA picked up his
fourth win of the season after a race long battle with Ed Wiser. At the flag it
was Huchko, Ken Puglisi Jr. , Ed Wiser Ricky Steigerwald and Jason Herniak. Brian
Huchko won the heat also.
In the Imperial Heights Garage DIRTcar Young Guns, Joe Gombach III, Claridge PA
