Amor, Boal go two-for-two in Top 3 finishes at Plymouth Speedway

  05/22/12 No stranger to victory lane, Steve Stacy dominated the Outlaw Late Model division at Plymouth Speedway Friday night, taking his second win of the season in the series. “I didn’t qualify well,” Stacy said, “but the car was on a rail tonight, we couldn’t have made it any better. Seeing all these fans out here for this autograph session really pumped me up.” It was DARE/autograph night at the track, dubbed the “Playground for Power” and all drivers in each of the track’s four divisions spent intermission meeting and greeting their fans. Following Stacy in second was “Radical” Rich Boal and Shawn Amor came in third.

In the Late Model series, Nick Pressler pulled ahead around lap 5 and never looked back. Pressler dominated in the win, challenged a few times by Shawn Amor and Rich Boal, who was third. Amor finished second, less than .3 seconds behind Pressler, who said, “Between last year and this year, I’ve won more races than in the last 10 years. I’d like to thank Mike Shewchuk, he’s the best friend you could ever have in this sport.”

D.J. Frost took the checkers in the Street Stock series, in a close battle between four drivers. Frost was locked in with Jeff Stetler, David Long and PeeWee Warren as the four pulled away from the pack.

Long gave Frost a good run, finishing just under .2 seconds behind him at the line. Warren and Stetler continued to battle for the third spot, with Warren pulling ahead to take it – less than a second off the pace from the leader. This was Frost’s first win of the season, and he showed his appreciation for those in the crowd. “I’d like to thank all the fans that are here, we couldn’t do this without you,” he said.

An interesting twist to the night saw the Hornets turning right instead of left, and on the Bull Ring instead of the asphalt. The idea was short-lived, however, because the track was too dusty for the unscheduled change of racing plans. Sal Bustamante took the checkers once the Hornets were back on the asphalt, and Daren Miller finished second.

Saturday night, May 19, is a night of action-packed racing at the Plymouth Speedway with the Gertrude-sponsored Crash-O-Rama. Planned for the night, beginning at 8 p.m., are school bus races, trailer races, mattress races, cops and robbers event, road rage event, spectator races and Hornets. Gates open at 6 p.m. Pit passes are $30 and there will be $5 rids in “The General” monster truck from 6 to 7:45 p.m.

Next weekend brings back the annual Jim Blount Memorial with Outlaw Late Models, Street Stocks and Hornets, starting at 8 p.m. Friday night, May 25. Gates open at 5 p.m. and opening ceremonies begin at 8 p.m. An added special event for the night will be the dropping of

$1,600 into the crowd in dollar bills. Don’t miss it – the Plymouth Speedway is the place to be next Friday night!
