July 5, 2013 – By Kyle Souza – Finally Mother Nature let us have some racing on Friday night! It was HOT and humid, but it was well worth it when the cars rolled into the back pit area. On tap were two Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series features, for the Sport 4 and Pure Stocks.

The SYRA 600 main event saw a thrilling battle right to the checkers. The first 15 laps of the event went by quickly under the green, but a lap 16 caution and red flag for a scary crash slowed the event. Once the accident was cleaned up, the battle came down to Brandon Lille and Shea Kulpa. They were nose-to-tail coming to the checkard flag, but Kulpa got in the back of Lille sending him around. Some tight racing turned bad, and TJ Morsehead Jr picked up his second win in a row.

Henry Lavallee dominated the Sport 4 Phil’s Propane Triple Crown Series 25 lapper. Getting out front early on, he held off Devin Miranda late to find himself winning the first stage of the crown for the Sport 4’s. A strong run for Miranda on Friday night, propels him higher in the championship chase. What a race!

The SYRA 750 class feature saw Taylor Bowser lead the first 18 laps. From halfway to the finish however, she had Curtis Rolando breathing down her neck and when he made the move to the inside going in turn one, it was all over. He slid his #48 by on the low side, and picked up yet another win this season on Friday night. Since they had opened a huge lead, Bowser was able to easily hold on for second.

The Nick’s Pit Stop Legends came down to Nick Ladyga and Nick Lascoula once again on Friday night. Early on Ladyga took the point, but he was sent to the rear of the field just after the halfway point for jumping the starts. He was still able to motor around the outside, and catch Lascoula late. The race wheel to wheel to the white flag, until Lascoula was able to slide by on the inside, and pick up win #1 on the season. It was some tight racing, but clean between the two drivers.

The Pure Stock 30 lap feature saw two teammates battle and what a show they put on. Jesse Melberg is the defending champion, but he knows his biggest enemy in the division is the car that comes out of his own shop. Chris Lima led the race from lap 7, and never looked back to the end. Instead, he looked out his right side door when they came off turn four for the checkers, as Melberg propelled himself to go wheel to wheel to the line. Lima was able to hang on by INCHES, maybe even centimeters at the stripe. For the first Triple Crown event, they put on a fantastic show.
