Jentile, Gregor and Ryan Continue Mountain Madness Enduro Series Success
St. Johns, PA (May 17, 2009)- Several enduro drivers in the tri-state area took the opportunity to compete in round #3 of the Mountain Madness Enduro Series Sunday at Sundance Vacation Speedway. Sam Ryan of White Haven, PA took the convincing victory in the four-cylinder enduro. Long Islandís Jeff Gregor scored his fourth straight Trophy Truck win and Jentile also scored his fourth straight victory in the 6/8-cylinder division.
Mike Ventura led the four-cylinder field to the green flag in the 100-lap event. Ventura stayed atop the field for only one lap before John Saccomandi took command.
Sam Ryan started tenth and worked his way into the second spot by lap fifteen. Ventura slipped to third, followed by Mark Foreman and Brandon Brown.
The red flag was thrown on lap 35 when Eric Santee and Justin Dunn collected in turn four. Santeeís car flipped on to its roof and partially laid across the top of Dunnís ride. Luckily, Santee was not injured and the rookie was forced to retire for the day. Dunn was able to continue.
Ryan set a commanding pace through out the event and went on to take his second enduro victory of the season over Saccomandi. Round #2 winner Ken Harper, settled for a third place effort, followed by Foreman and Ventura.
Looking for his fourth-straight win in the series, Joe Jentile of Bedminster, PA paced the field for the 100-lap 6/8-cylinder main event. With a couple of laps completed, Ed Brown, Jr. moved into second, followed by Aaron Miller, Robin Schewire and Dominic Ranieri.
With the exception of first place, drivers battled for position thorough out the rest of the field and at times nearly every driver had his or her shot at a top ten run.
Ranieri began to reel in Jentile past the mid race mark, but was sidelined with car problems on lap 65. The change of events gave the second spot to Richard Petey, who started last in the event.
Jentile crossed the stripe first over Petey, Bob Wink, Brown and Tom Szoke. However, several drivers were disqualified in post race tech inspection, which gave the second spot to Wink.
Since winning his first career race to close out last season, Jeff Gregor has been dominant in Trophy Truck action. Gregor started third in the 25-lap event and took the race lead from Kevin Nowak with seven laps remaining to notch is fourth-straight win. Nowak settled for second and Greg Harris, Bryan Kelly and Frank Katona completed the top five.
The next Mountain Madness Enduro Series event at Sundance Vacations Speedway will be held rain or shine on Sunday, June 28.
