Malta, NY — The weather in the capital district has finally been hot and so is defending Modified track champion Marc Johnson. Johnson made it two in a row at the “Great Race Place” using his trademark low line. “Unbelievable!” said Johnson. “Stewie is one of the best. The track was awesome.” Johnson also became the first repeat winner in the Modified division taking home the $3,000 pay day sponsored by Bart Contracting Company of Copake, New York.

After a fan chosen inversion gave Johnson the fifth starting spot, “The White Knight” made his way to the second position and began to stalk early race leader Danny Varin, who was subbing for Jeff Rockefeller.

From the 13th starting spot Stewart Friesen, making an appearance at Albany-Saratoga as his NASCAR Camping World Truck series schedule allows, made his way past Johnson and then to the race lead on lap 19. As Friesen worked his Halmar entry through lapped traffic on the high side of the speedway, Johnson was able to duck low underneath and regain the lead for good on lap 28, scoring his 11th career win at the historic Malta oval.

Rocky Warner became the first repeat winner in the Sportsman division on Wednesday night.

Warner took the lead from his sixth starting spot on lap 6 of the 25-lap feature and then held off the challenges of defending track champion Jeremy Pitts to pick up the $1,500 payday courtesy of Sowle Trailer Repair of Fultonville, New York. Connor Cleveland would settle for third with Chris Johnson and Jason Gray rounding out the top five.

In a wild Pro Stock feature Todd Hoffman seemed to have his first feature win in many years in hand until he was spun on the backstretch on lap 20. “Krazy” Kenny Martin appeared to take advantage and motored on to his third win of the season after holding off Kim Duell.

However, at the conclusion of the race it was announced Martin had been penalized two spots for spinning Hoffman, handing the $500 check from Marcy Mangino’s It Works! Network to Duell. Walt Brownell would finish second, Martin third, defending track champion Robbie Speed was fourth and Chucky Dumblewski rounded out the top five.

Gary Derocher picked up his first career win in the Limited Sportsman division. He held off James Meehan who was attempting to pick up his third win of the season, which would have graduated him to the Sportsman division.

Randy Miller became the first repeat winner with a Street Stock victory in a 20-lap feature that was cut thee laps short due to a rash of yellows in the closing laps of the event.

Albany-Saratoga will return to action on Friday night, June 16, with the “Hoosier Daddy” Father’s Day Special featuring the DMA USAC Bear Ridge Midgets, as well as all divisions in action. Pit gates open at 4 p.m. Grandstands open at 5 p.m. Racing begins at 7 p.m.

Friday June 9, 2017 Results

Malta, NY — It’s been an up and down season for defending 2016 Modified Champion Marc Johnson. But on Friday night the “White Knight” put it all together for his first win of the season.

Johnson started fourteenth on the grid as 31 Modifieds took Rich Peterson’s green for the 35-lap “Upstate GMC” Modified feature. Matt Delorenzo was fast on the top side and shot out to lead on lap 3 from his eleventh place starting spot.

Ronnie Johnson, who started fifteenth, was also using the high side of the “Great Race Place” to make his way to the second spot. He used the entire surface trying to find a way around Delorenzo.

Meanwhile, Marc Johnson was picking his way through the field using the bottom side of the speedway and finally ran down and passed Delorenzo for the lead on lap 31. From there Johnson pulled away to capture the victory over Delorenzo.

Keith Flach would get up for third with Ronnie Johnson settling for fourth and Peter Britten rounding out the top five

Connor Cleveland put on a show in the “Mark Hughes Memorial Sportsman Event.” The 4th annual race was organized by Derrick McGrew, a former Sportsman competitor and friend of Hughes. Hughes, a two-time winner at Albany-Saratoga himself, passed away in 2014 in a work related accident.

Starting from the thirteenth spot, Cleveland used the high side of the speedway to make his way to third by the caution free half-way point. From there Cleveland moved into the runner-up spot, just two laps later. On lap 21 he appeared to rocket past pole sitter Andrew Buff, who had held the lead from the initial green.

The caution then came out, putting Cleveland back to second, but he was able to take the lead for good on the lap 22 restart. From there Cleveland pulled away to take the win over Buff.

Twenty Four Pro Stocks took the green for the Ron Mensing sponsored “Featherfoot Warrior Pro Stock Feature.” Brandon Gray held off Kim Duell by 6/1000th of a second to capture his first career win at the Malta oval.

James Meehan made it two in-a-row in the Limited Sportsman feature, leading wire to wire and going virtually unchallenged. With one more victory on the season, based on track policy, Meehan will be moved up to the Sportsman division and is looking forward to doing so.

Chase Aussicker held off Al Relyea and Randy Miller for his first win of the season in the Street Stock division.

The Ryan brothers, Steve and Greg, swept the Greg’s Towing and Repair Single and Dual Cam 4-Cylinder features for the second straight week.

Albany-Saratoga will have a quick return to action on Sunday, June 11, with the previously rained out Electric City Riders Motorcycle Event. Gates open at 11 a.m. with racing beginning at Noon.

On Friday night June 16th will be the “Hoosier Daddy” Father’s Day program with all divisions in action featuring the DMA USAC Midgets. Grandstand’s open at 5 p.m. And racing starts at 7 p.m.

Revised Racing Schedule for Friday June 2

Malta, New York (May 26, 2017) – All-day rain forced the postponement of the racing action at Albany-Saratoga Speedway. As a result, the Patriot Sprints will return on Friday, July 7.

With the rainout, it means Friday June 2 will be a big night at the historic Malta oval. The King of Dirt (KOD) Pro Stock Series will headline the program along with the Sowle Trailer Repair (STR) Sportsman Series. All other divisions will be in action along with the 4-Cylinder Division.

It will also be New York State Stock Car Association (NYSSCA) night at the speedway. “NYSSCA is a group of racers dedicated to making our sport better,” said track promoter Lyle DeVore, “… and we look forward to their participation on Friday night.”

Originally created as “sounding boards” for area racers to voice opinions and to effect change at local speedways, the organization also presents contingency awards for drivers in all divisions on NYSSCA night. Membership in NYSSCA is open to everyone — fans, officials, crew members, and drivers. Enrollment forms will be available on Friday night if interested.

Pit gates will open on Friday at 4 p.m. and the grandstand gate will open at 5 p.m. Racing begins at 7 p.m. General admission is just $10 for adults and $2 for kids 11 and under.
