For our supporting
team members June was busy and full of good results
and tough challenges like racing often provides.
In the Sunoco Modified
series the #11 of John Avery ran once giving John more
seat time and more confidence. Jody London again
filled in during the main event and recorded a 12th
place finish as he cautiously brought the car in early
with some question about operating temperature. Later
inspection found nothing wrong and John is looking
forward to more racing in July.
In the Street Stock
class Kris Hillegeer had an up and down June with a
win, two – 2nd place finishes and a DNF that trashed
a rear end. Spencer Speedway is working on incentives
to bring in more cars and provide additional
competition which is what fans and racers enjoy. Kris
now sits in first place in the season points.
Super Six driver Ryan
Hillegeer also had a good June running up front, being
competitive in each race, and overcoming adversity to
record 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th place finishes. Ryan is
4th place in season points in a very competitive field
with plenty of opportunity to improve his position.
Ryan is searching for that elusive handling solution
that will hold competitors off long enough to score a
continues his battles in the Scorpion 4 Cylinder class
also showing consistent competitive runs. Finishes of
4th, 6th, 6th and 3rd have Kevin running his best and
securing 4th place in season points. It's clear that
Kevin is just a little experience and a little good
fortune away from picking up his first win.

Speedway's Web Site.
Rounding out the fleet
of blue #18 racers is Kris Hillegerr's son Tucker and
his Microd effort at the Sodus Microd club on Sundays.
Tucker scored his first win in June and continues to
learn more and more under Dad's watchful eye. It's
always a good time when the race team takes a break
from the big cars and comes out to cheer and enjoy the
family atmosphere of club racing. To learn more about
this family oriented racing club click on the Sodus
Microd Club Web Site.
Jody London improved
the set-up on the primary Kart and Cassie McGrath had
a much improved run at Paradise in June. Jody has
since completed work on the second Kart and is
planning events in July for drivers Cassie McGrath and
John Zimmerman at Paradise Speedway and other Karting
venues in Upstate New York. Between helping pilot John
Avery's car, running his Kart team, and helping other
racers out at other racing venues, Jody one of
racings' super fans.
For those looking for
our ROC Modified Tour results, we have a separate
write-up on the June 18th Spencer Speedway event
(hint, it went pretty good).
family of racers will be back in action at Spencer
Speedway on Friday July 9th. Hope to see you there.
