Wrap-Up: Part 1 of 3
Our modified teamís
accidents and injuries in the early part of the season
impacted our 2010 plans immensely. Collectively we
decided to skip several ROC tour races and focus on
three end of year specials. That meant for the
remainder of June through August we would provide
support for the racing efforts of our crew members and
friends. The Street Stock of Kris Hillegeer would find
the winnerís circle four times in 2010 and a 2nd
place season points total. Ryan Hillegeer experienced
an exciting first ever Super Six win on the final
night of racing and a 5th place points total. Kevin
Bertolone had his first ever Four Cylinder win and
grabbed a second win before the year was out finishing
with a 2nd place points total.
The #11 Sunoco
Modified of John Avery was piloted by both Jody London
and Terry Cheetham during race events while John ran
practice laps when time allowed. The car improved a
lot through the season finishing as a top 5

The first of the three
ROC races was held Sept 11th at Spencer Speedway.
Terry drove the #50 while Jody London drove the #18
for his first ever ROC Modified experience. The team
plan was to have Jody run as many laps as attrition
dictated and save the car for the upcoming US Open.
Jody did a fine job, enjoyed the seat time and gave
his fans another reason to cheer his growth. Terry ran
fair in his qualifier which put him in another
mid-pack starting position. With only a couple laps
in, it was clear that many racers were trying to find
an inside line as quickly as possible. A car came down
across Terryís right front sending the #50 in to the
infield and then spinning out on to the track where a
collision with an innocent competitor ended our
evening very early. With lots of laps remaining, basic
repairs were made so that we would not be rushed back
at the shop as we would need to prepare the #50 for
the Oswego ROC 200.
In Part 2 of 3 we will
recap our US Open efforts.
