Burris Sweeps, Jake Capek Gets 4th win, and Lepak and Raykowski Repeat

Burris Sweeps, Jake Capek Gets 4th win, and Lepak and Raykowski Repeat

by Mike Barrett
Kevin Burris again swept the 4 Cylinder Stock class of racers at Golden Sands Speedway Friday night by posting a much faster lap than anyone else, winning the heat with a last lap pass, and out-racing Davey Pennel. Lucas Betro, Frank Calabrese and Mariah Gajewski who rounded out the top 5. Burris simply has the car to beat, as does Pure Stocker Cale Marzofka. But, with 9 fast times, Marzofka has yet to win. At all. No heats or features for a driver that has been setting track records is unheard of. On the other hand, the Capeks, Jake and Ben have won half the features in the Pure Stock class, and Ben was on his way to another, but had a glorious moment taken away when he was knocked out by spinning cars smashing him out of the race as he approached lapped traffic. Cale Marzofka lined up 1st, but a tight setup slowed him enough for Jake Capek to move past, along with Kyle Genett. Marzofka posted 3rd, Mark Kalata, and Mike Kasperek 4th and 5th.
The Super Stock battle for points began much tighter than it ended tonight, as Brian Weinfurter got a shot in the arm after Ryan Hinner suffered from a shifter that popped out of gear early and often. Brian's lead is a decent one, and Hinner is only a bit chagrined that he will probably not be a triple points champ this year, something even he never dreamed could happen. Weinfurter would have to have atrocious luck to lose that lead, but then again anything can happen. The close call was Mat Raykowski, leading every lap of the Super Stock feature, and having his rear end gears explode as he took the white flag nearly a straightaway ahead of 2nd place Brian Weinfurter. The resulting fluid made racing impossible, and Raykowski was declared the winner. Since the caution was a fluid/debris problem, Raykowski retains the lead and the win, his 2nd this year. Dean Zakrzewski capitalized on his 2nd fast time in a row, and finished 3rd, Chris Brooks and Galen Manternach were 4th and 5th.
The Element Mobile Late Model race #7 was a large field full of past champions, and fast newcomers, led to the green by youngster Darren Jackson and veteran Jeff Weinfurter. Weinfurter bolted to the front, but lost the lead to Brandon Selle a few laps later. Jeremy Lepak began 11th, and really looked sharp in a car that barely worked up any heat in a romp to the front. Lepak spanked a 21 car group in his 2nd win of the year, ahead of a resurgent Selle, a strong-looking Weinfurter, and Tim Sauter finishing 4th ahead of Corey Jankowski. Cardell Potter's fast time made his life more difficult, and he struggled with traffic to post 7th.
The 4 Cylinder Mod drivers have been a tough group, and tonight's group of 7 raced away with an all-green show that saw Scott Scholze challenged by Adam Eckes, then driving off to an easy win. Eckes' car looked like it lost the handling, and he barely managed 4th, ahead of Phil Malouf. Scholze won over Austin Mckeever and Dale Robinson, who also posted fast time.
Cruiser racing saw almost the whole field lost to flat tires, broken wheels, and even loose battery cables on the Ciesielski racer as Wheelock and Kalata ran away with the trophy. Kampert and Kampert slipped into 2nd ahead of Helbach & Weasner.
