Afton, NY — With one month remaining in the point season at the Afton Motorsports Park, the point leaders in the Modifieds, Open Sportsman, Crate Sportsman, Four Cylinder Trucks decided that Friday night was an excellent night to widen their leads in the point standings.

Division point leaders Andy Bachetti in the Modifieds, Claude Hutchings, Jr. in the Open Sportsman, Damon Decker in the Street Stocks, and Ralph Cuozzo in the Four Cylinder Trucks all won their respective features. All four drivers opened up bigger leads in the point standings for their respective division in the quest for the track championship.

AJ Digsby was the only point leader who did not win a feature as he finally got his season long struggles figured out and won the Crate Sportsman feature. Crate Sportsman point leader Cody Clark was off the pace on the night and saw his point lead cut into.

The 30 lap Modified feature had a Fulton Outlaw 200 Guaranteed Starting Spot on the line which had Alan Barker and Mitch Gibbs lead the field to green. Gibbs debuting a brand new Bicknell 2017 x chassis jumped out to the lead over Barker, Ken Titus, Nick Nye, and Paul Jensen.

Afton, NY — After a four week hiatus due to three weeks of rainouts and a week off for the Afton Fair. The Afton Motorsports Park returned to action on Friday night with Alex Tonkin outdueling his brother, Brett to win the Mid Season Championship feature for the Modifieds. Dennis Clapperton captured his first career feature win by winning the Open Sportsman feature with Allan Hodge winning the Crate Sportsman feature. Recent Afton High School graduate Damon Decker continued his great season as he captured the Street Stock Mid Season Championship and Bob Crandall won the Four Cylinder Truck feature.

Eddie Newell and Matt Roberts brought the Modified field to green to start their Mid Season Championship 30 lap feature and with three caution flag periods taking place before a lap was scored, track officials called for a single file start.
