John Barber Wins Third SST Modified Feature at BullRing, Gleason, McDonald & Scutt.

WCIS, with excitement building in the grandstands as the racecars were set to take the field on this cool and beautiful spring day. The SST Modifieds put on a show for the fans that they would not soon forget the #2 of Dan Hoag out of Dansville NY started out front going down the backstretch, the #55 Greg Utberg battled Hoag and in turn 4, Utberg advances into the lead of the 35 Lap SST Modified main event. Caution on lap two as Paul Lord Jr. #6, crashes down the front stretch and would end his night early with heavy frontend damage to his SST Modified. On the restart, Scott Reece #4 takes the lead from Utberg and pulls away. Further back in the field John Barber #01 from Bliss NY started in 6th and Joe Evans #91 made the charge towards the front of the pack. On lap-11, Barber makes the pass on Reece & takes the lead; a few laps later Utberg and Evans pass Reece. The #4 of Scott Reece slows on the front stretch, to the fate of mechanical problems, and will have to leave the race with a SST Modified that could have finished in the top three. Evan’s has now passed Utberg for second position and Barber has checked out with a five-car advantage. Coming down to the stripe John Barber #01 wins the 35-lap SST Modified  feature at Wyoming County International Speedway followed by #91 Joe Evans the 2008 SST Modified tour champion and current 2009 points leader, finished in 2nd and #55 Greg Utberg with a strong race finish in 3rd.

From the drop of the green flag, Gleason pulls away from Gordon but finds #15 Bobby Lippa Jr., last Friday nights SST SuperStock 50-lap tour winner and 2009 points leader on his rear bumper going down the back straightaway. Lippa Jr. kept pressure on Gleason with a great door-to-door battle, Lippa Jr. started to fade, the grandstands on their feet as they watch their points leader fall back losing positions fast. The caution comes out on lap-8 and Tony Pangrazio #41; retires for the night engine problems; #15 Bobby Lippa Jr. forced to leave the race with power steering problems.
