Accord Speedway NY – Jimmy Wells makes a late race pass to pick up an historic win on POWDERTECH night!

Friday evening kicked off Memorial Day weekend as longtime supporters of the Accord Speedway – PowderTech, out of Duanesburgh NY hosted the evenings events. Seven divisions were on hand which included the Northeastern Vintage Dirt Modifieds.
The Arkel Motors Modifieds started their 30 lap feature with a pair of Ricci’s on the front row. Ricci Jr. had issues with his primary car and daughter Allison handed her number 55 over. Rich Ricci Jr quickly grabbed the lead in the borrowed car. Last weeks winner, Michael Storms started in the 12th position as he started to work his way through the field. The 97 of Danny Tyler started in the 3rd position Leo Fotopoulos had a great run battling inside the top 5 for most of the race finishing in the 6th position. Dan Creeden, Storms, and Andy Bachetti had some side by side battles throughout the race as they worked their way towards the front. With just a few laps remaining, the 831 of Jimmy Wells found himself something special on the highside of the speedway going into turn 3 and made the pass for the lead and was able to pick up a huge win on PowderTech Night. Ricci Jr would finish 2nd, Bachetti 3rd, Tyler 4th, and Michael Storms rounding out the top 5.
The Mid-Hudson Concrete Sportsman Feature had the 26s Mike Senecal and the 5 of Tyler Johnston on the front row. Senecal had a good run going then an unfortunate spin in turn 4, he then had to work from the back of the field. Matt Shultz had a great run working into the top 5, when an early race incident making him work from the rear of the field. The man on the move was the 20c of Corey Cormier who started way back in the 23rd starting position finally cracking the top ten on lap 15. All the action going on would allow Tyler Johnston to make it look easy as he picked up the PowderTech victory with Jim Johnston, Matt Shultz, Aaron Doolittle, and Corey Cormier rounding out the top 5.
WRWD Country 107.3 Rookie Sportsman Feature had the 22 of Billy Fiske and 17v of John Velde IV lead the field to the green flag. Last weeks winner Brian Durbin got in an early race incident ruining his chances to pick up another win. Great racing up front as the 27j of Jared Miller would pick up the victory over Kevin Murphy and John Velde IV.
WRWD Country 107.3 NEWS Wingless Sprints Feature had the 4 of Mike Traver and the H2O of Dan Malley take the front row at the start. After a few caution flags flew, we would see the 3 of Jeremy Quick and the 91 of D’Agostino would take off from the field with Jeremy Quick picking up the victory followed by D’Agostino, Malley, Smith Jr, Kyzer
Upstate Auto Pure Stock Feature would see the 22j of Jay Smalley use his outside front row starting position to sail out to an early lead which would bring him to the checkers. Smalley gets the PowderTech victory over Jim Mahar and Codi Clark.
Dan’sTowing Fireball 4 Cylinder Feature would see triple 18’s battling together for the top three positions. To add to the craziness of who is who in which 18? The winner would be Anthony Tarantino who was driving the 18t a borrowed ride! Jeff DeGroat and Tim DeGrote rounds out the top 3
Northeastern Vintage Modifieds their first trip to the speedway in 2019 so the fans could see the cars that brought us todays stars. Mike Houghtaling would pick up the checkers over Mike Brown and Doug Atkins.

Accord, NY - Accord Speedway Honors 2018 Champions And Place Winners At Annual Awards Banquet
By Steve Pados, Accord Speedway Media

Accord Speedway Promoters Gary and Donna Palmer welcomed in a crowd of 250 members of the racing fraternity on Sunday evening as they hosted their eighteenth annual Accord Speedway Banquet and Awards ceremony. The banquet took place at The Chateau Restaurant, just a few miles away from the speedway in Kingston, New York. The Palmer family completed another successful racing season at their pristine and exciting quarter mile speedplant nestled within the valleys of the Catskill Mountains. Although Mother Nature presented some problems along the way in 2018, the racing season proved to be both exciting and intense as a few of the championship titles came down to the final night of points at the speedway.

After a joyous and fun-filled cocktail hour, sumptuous dinner and dessert, the evening's emcee and track announcer Steve Pados and his assistant Tim Adams took to the stage to begin the awards presentations. Division by division was announced as spectacular hardware and awards were handed out to all of the speedway's champions and attending place finishers. The Champions also received championship jackets.

The Friday night Awards began with the Fireball Four Cylinders. Jerry Kingeter, on the basis of four wins took the title award for the Fireballers with Richard Smith, Jeff DeGroat, Willie DeGraw, Ed King, Anthony Taratino, and Nicole Nelson grabbing up the hardware that went with the spot in the hotly contested fender smacking division. In the over the top contested Upstate Auto sponsored Pure Stock division, Steve Williams captured the championship title highlighted by a five win season and capturing the title on the final night of
the season in the highly competitive affordable division at the speedway. Also honored were high place winners Emerson Cargain Jr., John Hechinger, Bob Sleight Jr, Ray Tarantino, Livy Johnson, Chris Kanuk, James Goetchius and Rickey Scott.

The Arkel Motors Sportsman title found "The Bushkill Bullet" Kyle Rohner returning to the speedway and capturing his fourth championship at the Accord facility and led the division with six wins. Leo Fotopolous Cole Hentschel, Matt Shultz and Mike Senecal also picked up their hardware for a season well done. In the Rookie Class, only three were named and they were Travis Green, Charles Loiodice and Cole Stangle with each driver winning three events before moving to the regular Sportsman divisions.

In the Insinger Fuels Modified division, “The Montgomery Missile” Anthony Perrego emerged as the champion, his first ever Modified title at the speedway. Perrego was a four time winner during the season which included capturing his ever "King of the Catskills" victory. “Iron” Mike Ricci, "The DC Express" Danny Creeden, “Jammin” Jimmy Wells, “Double J” Joe Judge and “The Lighning Bolt” Rich Ricci III were recognized as place winners in the division.

"The Travelin Man" Mick D’Agostino became the third champion in the still relatively new WRWD Radio Sprint Car division at the speedway. D’Agostino scored six wins during the season. Mark Connoly and Jeremy Quick were also honored for their heroics on the speedway.

Many special honors were also handed out during the evening. The top Crew Chiefs were honored and the winners included Walt Howe in the Modifieds, Bobby Hentschel in the Sportsman and Tony Garaguso in the Pure Stocks, George D’Agostino in the Sprints and Nicole Nelson in the Fireballers. The top family in racing award at the speedway was bestowed upon the Rusty Creeden Family. The Grass Roots of racing awards went to the Green Family and Mike Ricci and Jimmy Wells. Joe Judge in the Modifieds, Danny Morgiewicz in the Sportsman and James Goetchius in the Pro Stocks were named the Most Improved drivers at the speedway.

Special Tribute Awards were given to the George D’Agostino for his longest towing award from the Boston area. "Uncle" Mike Hansen from WRWD Radio was honored for his dedication to racing with the Patriot Award. Special Appreciation honors were given to Bob Talmadge, Tom Czaban was honored for his track videography work at Accord. Tim Adams was honored for his work behind the mike and in victory lane. Announcer and Media Man Steve Pados was honored for his long-standing service to the speedway and for keeping the fans well informed with his lively banter over the course of the racing season. A Special Dedication Racing Award was bestowed upon race director Dave Rocket and his wife Joanne. A special dedication award was also given to "The Godfather" Marty Dibble.

Early practice sessions will open the speedway in 2019 with April 12th and April 19th practice time on tap for the drivers in all divisions to prepare for the 2019 season.
