Alan Barker took the lead with two laps remaining in the Greg Page Construction Modified feature on Klinger Power Sports Night at I-88 Speedway and went on to take his first Modified feature win at the track. Barker, of Norwich, capitalized on heavy lapped traffic in front of Mitch Gibbs coming off turn four to take the lead using the high side off the turn.

"It feels really good to finally maintain throughout the feature. We got right up to second and I said 'Here we come' and then it stopped going. Nick (Nye) went by me and Mitch (Gibbs) went by and we went outside to see if we could carry some momentum and it worked. The car just stuck with us tonight," said Barker in Victory Lane after the race.

Afton's Kurt Decker took the lead at the start of the race from the outside front row starting position. The first caution of the race came on the second lap when Carbondale PA's Alex Tonkin clipped an implement tire on the inside of turn two resulting in a chain reaction accident which sent current point leader, Andy Bachetti to the pits. Bachetti, of Sheffield MA, was unable to continue after contact with the turn two wall.

When Carbondale PA's Brett Tonkin slowed in turn two the caution came out setting of a lap six restart. Nick Nye, of Cortland, took advantage of the restart and grabbed the lead putting Decker in second, Norwich's Mitch Gibbs third and Barker fourth.

At the halfway point Nye continued to lead with Gibbs running second, Barker third and Mike Mahaney, of King Ferry, fourth. Two laps later Gibbs slipped under Nye to take the lead coming off turn four.

If Andy Bachetti is going to win the 2016 Greg Page Construction Modified track championship the path will go through victory lane. For the seventh time in 12 races the Sheffield MA driver rim rode his way through a stellar field of Modified drivers to take the feature win on Friday night at I-88 Speedway. Starting eleventh in the field, Bachetti completed a three wide pass for the lead coming off turn two on the sixth lap and held off a late race challenge from Edmeston's Paul Jensen to take the win.

Kurt Decker, of Afton, led the early laps of the race despite the persistent efforts of Carbondale PA's Alex Tonkin until Bachetti made the pass for the lead.

After a caution on lap 7, sixth starting Paul Jensen slipped past Masonville's Mike Clapperton to take over third. Jensen, of Edmeston, would pass Tonkin by lap 13.

Ryan Godown took advantage of drawing the pole for the Short Track Super Series Crazy 8's event at I-88 Speedway to lead every lap on his way to the $8,888 winner's share of the purse.

"In the beginning with the lapped cars, they were just racing. We just navigated the best we could. I just wanted to keep it out of the fence" said Godown after the race.

"When you are leading for so long, you don't know which lane is faster. You never know, being out front so long, if the bottom came in. We've only been here a couple times" the winner continued in the victory lane interview.

While Godown was controlling the front of the pack, I-88 Speedway regular Andy Bachetti continued his come-from-the-back mentality which has carried him to 6 feature wins in the 2016 season. After starting 12th in the 26 car starting field, Bachetti had worked his way to second place on lap 21 when he made contact with the backstretch wall coming off turn two. The resulting flat tire caused the driver to slow bringing out the first caution of the event.

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.
