Scott Wylie Victorious in Sandra Vogler Memorial at the Bull Ring – DTD Exclusive
By SKIP HOWE
PERRY, NY – The New York Superstocks made their final trip Saturday night to the Wyoming County International Speedway for their final race of the 2018 season to pay tribute to one their own, in the Sandra Vogler 51 Lap Memorial.
A field of 24 of the best Superstock drivers filled the field for a race that would be full of action from green to checker. In the early going of the event, the field brought out many caution flags due to a cold racing service and loose race cars, but on the restarts one thing stayed the same and that would be Shaun Frarey would be the leader. On the lap 9 re-start Scott Wylie would be in the runner the rest of the top five were Nick Robinson, Chris Vogler and Andy Kryan.
On the re-start the top five would remain the same, although positions three, four and five would battle between their selves for the third spot. With a long green flag run occurring tension was building and on lap 38 we would witness 3 yellows and a red flag. In the first yellow it was Nick Robinson and Joel Gleason, both would continue but at the rear of the field. In the second yellow Chris Vogler and Charlie Sharpsteen. The third caution period was brought out when Robinson turned Jason Dinzler in front of the field causing a major front stretch pile up, bring-ing out the red. The cars collected included Sharpsteen, Cole Hicks, Sam Rotunda, and Eric Harstreiter.
On the re-start Frarey would jump out front to lead the lap, but Wylie got shot out of a cannon and made a pass on the outside with a run and got back by to regain the top spot. On the next circuit the red would fly for the second time as Amber VanOrden and Joel Gleason got together sending VanOrden head first into the outside wall. Both drivers exited their hotrods and would be okay.
When the checkered flew Scott Wylie would win his first Sandra Vogler Memorial event and Nick Robinson would be crowned the 2018 Sunoco NY Superstock Champion.
