Brett Jaycox Captures First Ever CRSA Feature Win – I88 Speedway – 8/15/14

The CRSA Sprint Car Tour made the trip to the I-88 Speedway this past Friday and emotions were high as this was the first weekend of racing since the tragic accident that took the life of sprint car driver, Kevin Ward jr. Nearly everyone that was present, in the pits as well as the grandstands, were sporting the color orange in honor of the young racer. Decals with the number 13 were provided for every car in the pit area and they were all brought out on the track, in one long line, for the National Anthem. The speedway management also brought some fans wearing orange shirts out in front of the stands and were aligned to form the number thirteen.

Kelly, our Dirt Track Girl sponsor, handed out orange ribbons with a checkered stripe to all the CRSA drivers and officials to pin on their uniforms for the evening. All of this goes to show what a tight knit family we have in short track auto racing... The twenty five lap A-Main for the CRSA sprints had a unique change on this night, lap 13 was removed to say our goodbye to the young Kevin Ward.

Warren Alexson and Bob Gray brought the field to the stripe and it was Alexson putting his #3a out in front. Gray grabbed the second spot followed by Chuck Alessi, Joe Kata, and Dalton Herrick to complete lap one. Cars were two and three wide on a nice sticky surface, with a thick cushion which is perfect for sprint car racing! Lap two saw Kata slip past Alessi for third and the 07 of Brett Jaycox, who started eighth, and Dustin Purdy, ninth, were on the move as Jaycox had already moved to fourth with Purdy in sixth.

Alexson pulled to nearly a straightaway lead using the top of the speedway and looked to be well on his way. Jaycox took away the third spot from Kata on lap ten as Alexson's car seemed to going away slightly and the lead was shrinking. One lap later, we saw Jaycox steal second from Gray and was closing fast on the leader. Jaycox got to the inside of Alexson and finally on lap eighteen secured the lead as Purdy now took third away from Gray. The only caution of the race flew one lap later for Jeff VanSteenburg who got turned around on the high side of turn three.

After the single file restart at the cone, Jaycox again maintained his lead followed by Alexson, Purdy, Gray, and Scott Goodrich was now fifth from his eleventh starting spot. Purdy was putting heavy pressure on Alexson and as Jaycox crossed the finish line for his first ever, CRSA win, Purdy edged past Alexson by a nose at the line for the second spot. Gray was fourth, and Goodrich with a nice run for fifth. Herrick, Kata, Mike Kiser, John Matrafailo, and Chuck Alessi rounded out the top ten.

A-Main finish, 25 laps:
1) 07 - Brett Jaycox 2) 83 - Dustin Purdy 3) 3A - Warren Alexson 4) 5X - Robert Gray 5) 30 - Scott Goodrich 6) 36 - Dalton Herrick 7) 10 - Joe Kata 8) 99 - Mike Kiser 9) 17 - John Matrafailo 10) 91 - Chuck Alessi 11) 29 - Art Kiser 12) 4S - Kyle Smith 13) 1Q - Thomas Radivoy 14) 19eM - Emily VanInwegen 15) 98T - Tyler Jashembowski 16) 1 - Jeff Van Steenburg 17) 3P - Josh Pieniazek DNS) 11 - Mike Esposito

Tresch Victorious under the "Super Moon" at OCFS - 8/9/14 - posted on 08/11/14

On a beautiful August evening, complete with a "Super Moon" high in the sky, the CRSA Sprint Car Tour took to the "hard clay" of the Orange County Fair Speedway for the fourth time in 2014. It was also race number seven of the E&H Services, Southern Tier Challenge. It was all about the local racers on this night as Tour points leader, Middletown resident Scott Goodrich, was looking for his second win of the year and nearby Accord resident, Jeremy Quick was there to try to stretch his point lead in the Southern Tier Challenge and was eyeing his first victory of his up and down season.

After the redraw from the heat finishes, another Middletown resident, Brittany Tresch found herself in the pole position. She was also looking for the first win on her limited schedule and she is no stranger to victory lane here as she captured the second win of her young career at OCFS in 2013. But sitting along side in the outside row was a very determined Jeremy Quick with ideas of his own. The second row was also a tough one because sitting in the third position, another Middletown racer, Joe Kata was starting next to last years Tour Points Champion, John Matrafailo.

The A-Main was introduced with a four-wide salute and before Starter, Kenny Marshall could wave his green flag, the night was over for Joe Kata as he pulled his black #10 pit side with injector problems ruining his bid for his second win of the season.

At the green Tresch and Quick came down the front stretch side by side and it was Quick putting his #72 out in front with the #2 of Tresch in tow. Matrafailo grabbed the third spot with Mike Esposito, who was making his first CRSA start of the season in fourth and "The Show", Jeff VanSteenburg was fifth. Making a hard charge through the field on the very first lap was Scott Flammer, moving from his nineth starting spot to the sixth position. Quick was stretching his lead over second place Tresch as she was doing the same to the rest of the field. Lap three saw Flammer slip past VanSteenburg and set his sights on Esposito who was drafting Matrafailo. Every one seemed to settle in but Quick was pulling away to nearly an entire straight away advantage on this 5/8 mile oval.

At the half way point, Quick was out front but his lead was dwindling. His car was getting looser coming off turn four and the #2 of Tresch was getting faster using the bottom of the racetrack. She pulled within a car length of the leader on lap twelve and down the back stretch moved up on Quick's back bumper in a Nascar style draft. As the #72 started to slide up the speedway again in turn four, Tresch went low and stole the lead away down the front stretch to the roar of her local fans in the stands. She now started to pull away herself on the field and on to a very popular victory in this twenty lap event. Quick held on for second, Matrafailo third, Esposito fourth, and Flammer finished in the fifth spot.

A-Main finish, 20 laps:
1) 2 - Brittany Tresch 2) 72 - Jeremy Quick 3) 17 - John Matrafailo 4) 11 - Mike Esposito 5) 37 - Scott Flammer 6) 1 - Jeff Van Steenburg 7) 3P - Josh Pieniazek 8) 30 - Scott Goodrich 9) 36 - Dalton Herrick 10) 4S - Kyle Smith 11) 1Q - Thomas Radivoy 12) 5T - Mark Taylor 13) 19eM - Emily VanInwegen 14) 7S - Mike Sabia 15) X - BK Rizzo DNS) 10 - Joe Kata
