Guss Jr. Scores Farley Speedway NASCAR Win 

 

 

The Farley Speedway hosted night number two of the 2002 NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge on Friday, April 26th. Another excellent crowd braved the chilly conditions to take in an action packed night of racing.

 

Ray Guss Jr. of Milan, IL. has established himself in the early going of 2002  as a force to be reckoned with in the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series. Guss Jr. will be in competition at least two of the Simmons Promotions tracks and will be contending for the NASCAR Midwest Region Championship. Guss Jr. was in top form on Friday night and worked to the front from his fourth row start, Guss was battling with Jeff Aikey for the lead as the 10 lap mark approached. Guss secured the lead and held off numerous challenges by Denny Eckrich to score the Iowa Illinois Taylor Insulation Late Model feature victory. Guss took the checkers in the 25 lap feature by two car lengths over Denny Eckrich with Dave Eckrich crossing the stripe in third.

 

Ron Barker scored his second consecutive feature win in the Quarter Master Modified division. Barker started deep in the field and worked his way to the front using both the top and bottom of the wide fast track. Barker caught race leader Jed Hurst on the tenth lap of the 20 lap feature, the two battled for the next five laps before Barker was able to move into the lead for good. Barker went on to an impressive win over Hurst, Mark Schulte turned in an excellent run in taking third ahead of Steve Kohli.

 

The Pro Stock feature belonged to Andy Eckrich, the youngest of the three racing Eckrich brothers led the 15 lap Pro Stock feature from flag to flag. A first lap melee sidelined strong contenders John Maher and Kevin Schroeder. The race then went green to checkers with Eckrich dominating, Ty Kleiner took second after a fierce battle for the runner up position, Dan Shelliam nipped Jeff Kennedy for third. Kennedy was later DQd for failing to make weight.

 

23 Hobby Stocks took the green in the feature on Friday night. The race was slowed twice for minor cautions, the final restart set up a two lap dash to the finish. T.J. Leslein used the restart to his advantage and shot past race leader Jason Rauen to move into the lead and moved away to score an exciting win. Rauen followed Leslein across the finish line in second ahead of Ed McIntyre.

 

Jason Roth scored his second consecutive feature win in the Farley Flyer division. Roth came from the back and overtook leader Mark Jaeger on his way to the win.

 

Racing will continue at the Farley Speedway on Friday, May 3rd with hot laps at 7 p.m. and racing to follow.
