TWICE IS NICE FOR WYATT SCOTT AT FREEDOM
ARCADE, NY…..Two was the magic number Friday night at Freedom Motorsports Park as four drivers took their second wins of the season on Sixt Lumber Night.
Dutch Davies took off and ran away from the field at the start of the 25-lap Super Late Model event, pulling out a full straightaway by lap 10 on Wyatt Scott. Once the race got past halfway, Scott started reeling in Davies, and he made the pass for the lead on lap 19. One lap later, Davies pitted under yellow with a flat right rear, rejoining at the tail of the pack. Scott held off a determined charge from Greg Oakes over the final two laps to take his second win of the year, followed by Bob Dorman, Mike Wonderling, and Kyle Bedell.
The 20-lap Street Stock feature saw Tom Kemp and Bill Taylor jump out to an early advantage, with Taylor taking the lead from Kemp on lap 3. Joe Chamberlin moved into third, but his car started to smoke and he would up dropping on just before a yellow on lap 18 bunched the field. Taylor and Kemp thrilled the fans with a two lap side by side battle for the win, one that Taylor managed to get by just half a car length at the finish. Aaron Miller, Michael Oakes, and Ted Mascho rounded out the top five.
In the Pro Mod division, Steve Dixon took the lead from Dennis Lunger Jr and survived some early race restarts, one of which sent Adam Ashcroft to the tail of the field after a spin. As Dixon increased his lead at halfway, Ashcroft was tearing through the pack, moving into fourth when the yellow flew for a Tyler Oakes spin on lap 14. Ashcroft got by Al Brewer for third on the restart, but could not catch Lunger Jr and Dixon, who brought home his second win in two starts at Freedom in 2021. Brewer and John Woodward Jr took fourth and fifth.
Ray Bliss Jr grabbed the top spot from Byron Dewitt in the 20-lap DIRTcar Sportsman feature, leaving Dewitt to battle with Michael McCary for second. McCary did get by Dewitt, but one corner later Dewitt executed a crossover move and retook the runnerup spot. As they diced, Bliss cruised away and took his first win at Freedom since 2018, with Dewitt, McCary, and Dan Kolb following.
It was another dominant performance for Andy Schumaker in the Mini Stock feature as he went wire to wire for the win, with only a lap 6 caution putting him within sight of Brian Johnson and DJ Williams, who spent the first two thirds of the race battling for second. At the finish, Schumaker had win number two on the year, with Johnson getting the better of Williams in the race for second. Curt Rung and Rick Heeman rounded out the top five.
The 12-lap Bandit feature was won by Ridge Cobb, his second of the year, with Cody Atwater, Kayley Bacon, Seth Johnson, Cole Harding.

WYATT SCOTT TAKES FREEDOM WIN
ARCADE, NY…..Some new faces and some familiar ones graced Victory Lane on Bellinger Electric Night at Freedom Motorsports Park.
Bryce Davis and Wyatt Scott had a great battle at the start of the 25-lap Super Late Model feature, running side by side for the first few laps until Scott pulled away. Greg Oakes made a charge past Davis just past lap 10 and tried to run down Scott, but he held a five car length margin of victory to the checkered flag. Oakes and Davis took second and third, with Zach Wich nipping Cody Egner at the line for fourth spot.
The 25-lap DIRTcar Crate Sportsman race got underway with Dalton Martin leading Byron DeWitt up front. Sam Hoxie passed DeWitt for second, and DeWitt’s car had a rear end issue and he dropped out one lap later. Martin extended a lead over Hoxie to a full straight at the halfway point and cruised home with the feature win over Hoxie, Ray Bliss Jr, Michael McCary, and Mike Eastman.
In the 20-lap Pro Mod feature, Duane Powers outran Brodie Hill for the lead, but it only took Adam Ashcroft and Al Brewer a few laps to move past them into first and second. Brewer passed Ashcroft for the lead at halfway. Brewer pulled a healthy lead, but made contact with the lapped car of Kory Lanni on lap 17 which sent him grinding on top of the inside guardrail, damaging the back end. Ashcroft inherited the lead and pulled away from Powers to take his first win of the year, followed by John Woodward Jr, Victor Earle Jr, and Justin Chaddock.
Ted Mascho took the early lead in the 20-lap Street Stock feature but lost the lead to Dennis Cummings out a lap 4 restart. Tom Kemp battled past Joe Chamberlin for second and snagged the lead from Cummings on lap 9. Bill Taylor, who pitted with a flat on lap 4, worked his way back to third and began to pressure the leaders. Over a hectic few laps, Kemp and Chamberlin battled, and Chamberlin finally got the lead coming to the white flag and held on for his first win of the season. Kemp was a close second, with Michael Oakes, Cummings, and Randy Taylor rounding out the top five after Bill Taylor broke on the final lap.
The 15-lap Prime Time Energy Services Mini Stock feature found Andy Schumaker coming from mid pack to the lead at the end of lap 1, and was dominating the race till a red on lap 14 for a fire on Trevor Putt’s car. That set up a one lap dash that put Holden Hineman on Schumaker’s back bumper, but Schumaker held on to take the win.
After an opening lap challenge from Bryson Hill, Ridge Cobb motored home with a win in the 12-lap Bandit feature event. Cody Atwater took advantage of a miscue from Hill to snag second on the final lap, which also moved Seth Johnson up to third.

WONDERLING SHINES IN SUPER LATE MODEL WIN AT FREEDOM

ARCADE, NY…..A beautiful, warm night greeted fans and racers at Freedom Motorsports Park as Clayson Construction hosted the first competitive racing event at the track since the end of the 2019 season.

The 25-lap Super Late Model feature saw MIke Wonderling grab the early lead with Wyatt Scott moving into second a couple of laps in. Jason Harmon’s spin on lap 11 bunched the field for a restart. Greg Oakes took second from Scott on the restart, but on lap 20, Scott retook that spot and chased after Wonderling. Oakes wound up having a flat right rear with two to go, which set up a final restart. Scott challenged hard, but Wonderling held on for the win with Scott just a car length back in second. Andy Boozel, Greg Oakes, and Kyle Bedell rounded out the top five.
Ray Bliss Jr took thelead at the beginning of the 20-lap DIRTcar Sprotsman feature event and battled for a few laps with Sam Hoxie until Hoxie slid underneath and took the lead. Hoxie extended his lead to a full straightaway advantage at the finish, with Bliss holding off DeWitt for second. Mike Eastman was fourth.

The 20-lap Pro Mod feature began with Steve Dixon grabbing the lead, with Al Brewer and Adam Ashcroft fighting for second. A lap 6 spin by Brian Mohawk gathered the field for a restart, which saw Dixon lose the lead to Ashcroft, but Dixon returned the favor on the next restart. Dixon and Ashcroft continued their lead battle all the way to the finish, with Dixon getting the victory by a car length. Duane Powers, Al Brewer, and Justin Chaddock rounded out the top five.

In the 20-lap Street Stock feature, Joe Chamberlin led until Bill Taylor was abe to move past him on lap 8. Tom Kemp also moved past Chamberlin and spent the middle stages of the race trying to run down the leader, finally catching him in traffic on lap 16. On the next lap, Kemp was able to use a lapped car to take the lead, but the yellow flew after Taylor’s contact with that car and he stopped on track under yellow and he had to be pushed to the pits. Kemp held off Chamberlin on the final restart to claim his first ever Street Stock win at Freedom, followed by Chamberlin, Damian Long, Randy Taylor, and Aaron Miller.

The 15-lap Mini Stock race was a three way battle between early leader Andy Schumaker, Brad Whiteside, and Ryan Allen. Allen took the lead on lap 5 while Whiteside and Schumaker battled for second. At the line, Allen crossed a car length in front of Whiteside who was half a car length ahead of Schumaker. However, Allen’s car failed a post race inspection and the win was awarded to Whiteside over Schumaker, with Andrew Kreamer and Trevor Putt rounding out the top five.

In the 12-lap Bandit feature, Cody Atwater led the entire distance to take the win over Bryson Hill.
