Andy Bachetti continued his dominant season at I-88 Speedway by picking up his sixth Greg Page Construction Modified win in eleven races on Butler Auto Sales Night. Bachetti, of Sheffield MA, took the lead when Edmeston's Paul Jensen got caught behind a lapped car coming off turn four with two laps remaining in the race.

"We had a good night tonight. It's all about the American Racer Cup and winning races" said a happy winner in Victory Lane.

Jeff Sheely, of Alplause, took the lead at the start of the 30 lap Modified feature from his pole position start. By the third lap Binghamton's Ken Titus had moved into the lead with Sheely in second and Jensen in third.

Jensen would slip past Sheely on lap 5 before taking over the top spot on lap 7.

The first caution of the race would wave on lap 13 with Jensen leading, Brett Tonkin, of Carbondale PA second, Titus third, Alex Tonkin, also of Carbondale, fourth and Bachetti fifth.

Oxford's Rusty Smith won the first dirt Modified feature of his racing career on Greg Page Construction/Ehrlich Pest Control Night at I-88 Speedway in the 35 lap Mid-Season Championship event. Smith, a perennial champion on asphalt made the switch to dirt a few years ago before moving into the Modified division last season.

Starting eighth in the 23 car starting lineup, Smith took the lead from Otego's J.R. Hurlburt on lap 30 using the outside line off turn two. Hurlburt had taken the lead from Binghamton's Ken Titus on lap 15.

"We've been getting closer. And obviously doing it every week has made a big difference for our team. We're getting in a rhythm. The biggest thing is running weekly and getting in a rhythm" said Smith after the race.

Titus led the early laps of the race from his second starting position opening a half straightaway lead by lap 8. Entering lapped traffic on lap 10 Titus continued his run until the caution came out when Chris Bushnell, of Cortland, hit the front stretch wall and came to a stop in turn one.
