Cory Sparks Flies to CRSA Win at Fonda Speedway
Penn Can Speedway Final Full Points Event - Banquet Nov. 15th!! - posted on 10/01/14

The CRSA Sprint Car Tour gets a break from the action for the next two weeks as the racers ready for the final full points show of the 2014 racing season at the Penn Can Speedway.
2013 Tour Champion, John Matrafailo, leads the charge once again with Scott Goodrich only thirty six points back and Dalton Herrick sits in the third spot only nine points behind Scott. All three competitors have had a chance at the number one spot but bad luck has run its course. It all comes down to this race on October 18th for a chance to shuffle positions. After that, they just need to show up and race at the final two races of the year, OCFS and at the Five Mile Point Speedway to finish out the point reason.

Former go kart champion, Thomas Radivoy, has the CRSA Rookie title at his finger tips and merely needs to just attend the last three races to complete his mission. But don't count him out from grabbing a win before it's over... He is looking very strong as of late and feeling much more comfortable in these bigger, higher powered machines.

All three races left will still be accumulating the valuable, E&H Services "Southern Tier Challenge" points and will conclude at the end of the A-Main at the Five Mile Point Speedway. Jeremy Quick holds down the number one spot followed by Goodrich, Matrafailo, Herrick, and Joe Kata.

The CRSA Annual Awards Banquet is on tap for November 15th at the Holiday Inn Oneonta. Last years banquet saw over one hundred people in attendance and it was a great time for all. DJ, Rick Cornish is back for his fourth gig with the CRSA and has an unlimited supply of music.

Varin Grabs CRSA 40 Lap A-Main Event at I88 Speedway – 9/27/14 - posted on 09/28/14

On a warm fall day, the CRSA Sprint Car Tour made the trip to the always exciting, I-88 Speedway, as part of their yearend Algonkin Motel Fall 250! Twenty nine winged Racesaver sprints made the tow and as always, were warmly greeted by co-promoters, Ron Ford and Jamie Page. This race was the final race of the year for the CRSA at the I-88 Speedway and the final race of the Algonkin Motel Challenge, a five race series held at the I-88 Speedway. Scott Goodrich started the night in the top spot, but was closely followed by Mike Kiser, last years AMC champion, Dustin Purdy, John Matrafailo and Dalton Herrick.

The three G. Pivoda and Sons Construction heat races went off without a single caution as the track was smooth and fast. Brett Jaycox, Jeremy Quick, and Joe Kata were the victors.
A dash for cash was also in the night’s line-up and was sponsored by ESS star, Jeff Cook and his Cook's Contracting Services from Antwerp, NY. Jonathan Preston, making his second CRSA race of the year, took the top prize as he led all four laps for an extra $100 on the night.
In the B-Main, it was Ed Newhauser getting the win and making it into the forty lap event along with Scott Goodrich, Chuck Alessi, Dalton Herrick( who had to piece together another car after his scary crash from last week), Casey Williams, (making his first ever CRSA start) and rookie Mike Sabia.

The top four from each heat were brought to the front stretch for a redraw using frisbees which were placed in random order on the track. Each driver got to pick one, turn it over to get his starting position, sign his name to it, and toss it into the stands for some lucky fan. Grabbing the number one frisbee was Massachusetts own, Kyle Smith and it was Brett Jaycox picking the number two spot.

With the twenty six car field set, Kenny Marshall threw his green flag and the race was on in this second annual forty lap event. Smith jumped to the early lead with Dustin Purdy shooting up from his fifth starting spot to score second on lap one. Pieniazek grabbed third Jaycox fourth and Kata was fifth.

Smith starting pulling away, as was Purdy, while Pieniazek had his hands full with Kata and Preston challenging for his third position. Preston won that battle on lap five as the caution flew for Thomas Radivoy as he was turned around in turn two. Pieniazek was now running fourth followed by Kata, Quick, Jaycox, Mike Kiser, Danny Varin, and Scott Goodrich, who was a man on a mission, already getting to tenth from his twentieth starting spot!

After the restart, Smith again starting pulling away as the caution fell just two laps later, this time for Preston,who also got turned around in turn two, knocking him out of his third position and having to restart at the tail of the field. On the ensuing restart, it was still Smith with the lead, Purdy second, Kata third, Pieniazek fourth, and Quick. Goodrich took the eighth spot away from Varin and was determined to win the AMC title. The yellow flag was displayed once again, as Preston was sitting sideways in turn two, almost exactly in the same spot as before. This time, due to the two spin rule, he was asked to go pit side.

As the field was restarted once again, Pieniazek developed a bad push and went all the way up the track opening the door for a small freight train of cars and found himself back in eight at the end of lap ten. Breaking into the top ten was Ed Newhauser, who started nineteenth, and Matt Tanner, driving the Art Kiser #29, from sixteenth as Goodrich was starting to slip back and finally coming to a stop on lap eleven.

Smith continued to lead racking up the cash from the lap sponsors for this special event. Purdy, Kata, Quick, and Kiser were chasing as Varin was now starting to pick his way toward the front. Varin got by Kiser for fifth on the fifteenth lap as lap traffic started to become a factor. Lap eighteen saw Varin get past Quick for fourth as John Cunningham, also making his first CRSA start of the year, broke into the top ten.

At the halfway point, Smith got the $100 bonus as the field was closing in due to heavy lap traffic. Purdy was a close second with Varin in third, Kata fourth and Quick fifth. Kiser, Jaycox, Tanner, Newhauser, and now last week’s winner, Cory Sparks has gotten into the tenth spot.
Varin got around Purdy on lap twenty three and was now trying to run down Smith who was blistering the race track. The caution lights came on for the final time on lap twenty eight for the #19 of Chuck Alessi as he made contact with the wall and come to a stop on the back stretch ending his run.

A decision was now made to throw the red for a five minute fuel stop just to make sure everyone could make it the whole forty laps. With everyone ready to go, the green was thrown and the track was wide open for Smith who once again was holding the lead over Varin while Quick found the topside to his liking and shot up into third. Sparks did the same and he was also moving forward.

As lap traffic was coming back into the picture, Varin got his chance and squeezed past Smith to take the lead with just four laps to go. Quick was now putting pressure on Smith as both Kiser and Sparks got past Purdy on lap thirty eight. At the end of forty laps, it was Varin getting his third win of the season. Quick snuck past Smith on the final circuit to steal second and Sparks got past Kiser for fourth. Purdy, Kata, Jaycox, Tanner, and Williams rounded out the top ten.

This Saturday, September 27, the CRSA Sprint Car Tour travels to Afton, NY for their final time in the 2014 racing season to invade the I-88 Speedway. It is also the final race of the Algonkin Motel Challenge, a series that has accumulated points from all the races held at the I-88 Speedway throughout the season. The top three in the points race will be awarded at the year-end banquet and Scott Goodrich leads the way over Mike Kiser, last years AMC champion Dustin Purdy, John Matrafailo and Dalton Herrick. Only thirty three points separate first from fifth and ninety nine back to the ninth position. It is still up for grabs and anything can happen!

Extra money has been put in the purse along with a lap sponsor board which is sold out and will pay the leader of each and every lap. There is a halfway bonus, lap 20, that will pay the leader $100 extra for leading that lap alone!
