BREWERTON, NY – OCTOBER 10, 2013 (By Dave Medler) – It came down to three drivers Mike Mullen, Rick Demo and Alan Fink to decide the 2013 Brewerton/Fulton Speedway Anchor Bar & Grill Mod Lite Champion. Those three drivers were only separated by seven-points.
Mike Mullen the point leader, jumped right into the lead to start the 20-lap feature as he tried to stay ahead of Demo and Fink, knowing if he did that there would be no question who would be champion.
By lap-5 Rick Demo assumed the lead with Mullen right in his tire tracks. Behind the top-two, Frank Sobotka, Sterling Miller and Sam Usborne showed in the top-five.
At the halfway point, Demo opened a six-car advantage as Mullen kept the leader in sight. Miller, Sobotka, and Usborne still ran third through fifth just before a caution on lap-11.
With 5-laps to go Miller ran down Mullen and Demo using the top of the speedway to be scored the new leader just before another caution. On the restart the other point contender Alan Fink bolted from fourth to second setting up the battle for the title.
Over the remaining laps Miller bolted away to the win. Fink, Mullen, Demo and Usborne chased Miller across the line. When the points were totaled Mullen defended his 2012 tile by three-points in the final standings.
