TRACY WINS BATTLE – CURTIS WINS WAR IN AC DELCO

The AC Delco TSS Modified point championship would go down to the final event with John Curtis leading defending point champion, Joseph Tracey by just 60 points coming into the night. In the 15-lap feature, rookie Tyler Reed jumped out to the early lead with Dana Walker running in second and last week’s winner, Scott Hitchens third.

 

Tracey knew that he had to win to have a chance at the championship and was on the move taking third on lap four and one lap later pulling into second. The one and only caution of the race came on lap nine when Dwayne Crockett came to a halt. On the restart, Tracey grabbed the lead and started to pull away.

 

The remainder of the race was all Tracey as he drove to his sixth win which was a personal best. Reed made no mistakes to finish in the second spot with Hitchens third. Brandon Blades drove a solid race to finish in the fourth spot and Curtis clinched his first championship by rounding out the top five. Fast time in qualifying was set by Ryan Anderson who finished in sixth after starting in tenth.
