Click on image for larger version. Pole sitter Anthony Perrego of Montgomery NY took the lead at the start of the Greg Page Construction Modified feature at I-88 Speedway on Friday night. Third starting Shaun Walker worked under Edmeston's Paul Jensen in the race for second while defending Modified track champion Brett Tonkin used the bottom of the speedway and moved into fourth place under Mike Mahaney who was running the outside. By lap two Perrego had a half straightaway lead over Jensen with Masonville's Walker running third, Mahaney fourth and Tonkin fifth.
Mahaney of Kings Ferry continued to use the outside line and moved into third coming off turn two on lap five. Perrego checks out while Mahaney pressured Jensen on the inside before taking second on lap ten off turn four. Tunkhannock PA's Tonkin slipped under Jensen down backstretch on lap 11 to move into third.
At the halfway point Perrego led by half a track, with Mahaney second Tonkin third, Sheffield MA's Andy Bachetti had worked his way into fourth and Mitch Gibbs was running fifth.
The first caution of the race waved on lap 22 when Darwin Greene slowed in turn. Four. Perrego leads with Mahaney second, Tonkin third, Bachetti fourth and Gibbs fifth. Shaun Walker pitted under caution.
On the restart Bachetti took to outside on while Perrego opened up another big lead. With five laps remaining the front end of Mahaney's ride collapsed bringing his car to a stop on the front stretch resulting in the final caution of the race.
At the finish it was Anthony Perrego taking the win with Tonkin finishing second, Bachetti third, North Norwich's Gibbs fifth and Nick Nye of Cortland fifth.
"We definitely had a good car tonight. Starting on the pole makes it pretty easy. We've never been good enough to even finish in the top five here. We've had a few good runs but that was the best this thing's been here. I could almost flat foot it around..." Perrego said in his victory lane interview.

Alcohol at the Speedway decision
