Friday, June 24, 2016 Racing ~ Algonkin Motel & NYSSCA Night ~ Results

Andy Bachetti continued his June hot streak in the Greg Page Construction Modifieds on Algonkin Motel and NYSCCA Night at I-88 Speedway. The Sheffield MA driver garnered his third win in four races for the month, his only non-winning night coming on June 10th when he finished second to Cortland's Nick Nye.

Starting seventh in the 21 car starting field Bachetti broke into the top four on the fourth lap of the 30 lap feature, while pole sitter Steve Babicek and front row partner Kurt Decker battled for the lead. Decker, of Afton would slip by Babicek coming off turn four on lap three to take over the lead.

Bachetti would pass third running Alan Barker, of Norwich and Binghamton's Babicek on lap four to take over second.

It took six laps before Bachetti could catch and pass Decker coming off turn two. Despite dealing with heavy lapped traffic Bachetti would go on to take the win with Barker crossing the line second, Decker third, Mike Mahaney of King Ferry fourth and Carbondale PA's Brett Tonkin fifth.

Andy Bachetti's last lap pass of Mike Clapperton vaulted the Sheffield MA driver to his fourth Greg Page Construction Modified feature win of the season and into the lead in the race for the Modified track championship at I-88 Speedway.

Bachetti started ninth in the 19 car starting field before working his way into the top five by lap three. Second starting Chris Bushnell, of Cortland, took the early lead in the 30 lap race before surrendering the top spot to Masonville's Clapperton on lap 7. With Clapperton out in front, Bachetti drove his way to second on the ninth lap.

Clapperton began to work through lapped traffic on lap 12 and at the halfway point held a five car length lead over Bachetti. Using the far outside line around the track, Clapperton was able to work through heavy lapped traffic with Bachetti following.

With the white flag in the air Bachetti got a run on Clapperton coming off turn four and took the lead down the front stretch. At the finish it was Bachetti taking the win in the caution free race, Clapperton second, Mike Mahaney, of King Ferry third, Carbondale's Brett Tonkin fourth and Mitch Gibbs, of Norwich, fifth.

Nick Nye swapped the lead with Mike Clapperton during the early laps of the Greg Page Construction feature on Chambers and O'Hara Night at I-88 Speedway. Nye, of Cortland, took over the top spot on lap six coming off turn four. Clapperton, of Masonville, would come back and take the lead at the line on lap eight before Nye would return to the top spot one lap later.

With Nye leading and Clapperton running second, Andy Bachetti, of Sheffield MA, began to work his way through the pack and by the tenth lap was in fourth place. Bachetti pressured Brandon Walters, of Sidney, before taking over third on lap 17.

The caution came out on lap 17 as Susquehanna PA's Darwin Greene slowed in turn three. With Nye leading, Clapperton second and Bachetti third the race restarted and Nye began to pull away while Bachetti tried the high and low sides of the speedway before slipping into second on lap 19.

Nye had opened a five car length lead over Clapperton by the time Bachetti completed the pass and began to try to reel in the leader. With five laps remaining Bachetti caught Nye as the front runners came on lapped traffic. Nye was able to maneuver his way through the traffic and score his first Modified win of his career. Bachetti finished second with Oxford's Rusty Smith third, Mike Mahaney, of King Ferry fourth and Norwich's Mitch Gibbs crossed the line in fifth.

Claude Hutchings Jr. picked up his first Chambers and O'Hara Open Sportsmen feature win of the season. The Sauquoit driver started fourth and passed Bainbridge's Tyler Hart to take over second on lap two.

Pat O'Hanlon, of Delanson, started second and took the lead at the start of the race. O'Hanlon would relinquish the lead on lap 4 to Hutchings.

The caution came out on lap 5 for a three car tangle in turn four. When the race restarted, Hutchings was leading, with O'Hanlon second, Walton's Aaron Shelton third, Dave Rosa, of Delhi, fourth and Hart fifth.
