Jason Genco and James Henry Win another Tour Race at Genesee on Fair Night
 
Rich Vleck, BATAVIA, NY, (July 19, 2018)- The Genesee Speedway surface went through a wild array of changes throughout the night to provide a slew of great racing on a special Genesee County Fair midweek show, in the end though, it was a pair of familiar faces gracing Victory Lane at the end of the tour features.
 
Jason Genco, of Frewsburg, NY, and James Henry, of Niagara Falls, NY, each scored their third wins of 2018 at Genesee Speedway in dominating fashion.  To add to it, both drivers were able to score their second win in Batavia under their respective sanctioning bodies.
 
After a breakthrough victory back in June for his first career RUSH Late Model Tour Victory, Jason Genco made the second RUSH race at Genesee his personal bank account as he went out and completely dominated the 25-lap feature.  Genco was able to utilize his pole starting spot from winning the dash to drive out to a healthy advantage as the first 21 laps ran off without caution.  The race’s only restart with four laps remaining would not even phase him as he once again put his No. 29J well out in front of the field and never looked back.  John Waters would use that restart to move up to the second position and come home with a runner-up position.  Waters had to move around local favorite David Pangrazio, who fought off local JJ Mazur to finish in third.  Jason Knowles would run a solid night to round out the top five.
 
The other big show on the night was the GRIT Sportsman Series “Wheel Deal 30”.  The race was slowed in the early stages with four cautions in the first 7 laps, but once the race started clicking off leader James Henry only got better and kept pulling away.  Zach George had led the field to green and battled Henry for the lead, but as the race wore on, George became a benefit to the No. 21 as he worked hard to fend off the advances of Canadian Adam Leslie.  Leslie appeared to have a car that might be able to challenge Henry but could not find his way by the young polesitter.  The strong starting position and a comfortable lead was all “Oh Henry” needed to run off to his third win in as many starts at Genesee in 2018.  George would solid for his track-best runner-up finish while Leslie would have to settle for third. Ray Bliss and Ricky Newton completed the top five.
 
For the first time this season, Brian Kotraski was able to compete in his familiar 360 Late Model; not only would he compete, he would end up being the first driver not named Dave DuBois to win in the division this season.  After Tommy Kemp led the opening lap, Kotarski, of Alabama, drove to the inside of Kemp while the track was very slick to take over the top spot.  Though the middle of the race, John Zimmerman would try to move by the No. 29, but with Kotarski running the bottom of the slick surface, he could not be dethroned as he won his first career fair-week race.  Zack Carley, point leader Dave DuBois, and Tommy Kemp were the top five.
 
The Street Stocks ran their second mini-series race of the season with the GRIT “Fight Night” joining in on the fun.  After Kurt Stebbins held back Josh Pangrazio for the first 10 laps, the ensuring restart was when Pangrazio made his power move to get in front of Stebbins and then would never look back as he was able to collect his second win at Genesee in 2018. Stebbins would cross in second while Glenn Whritenour drove up to third.  Pat Powers and Byron Dewitt completed the top five.
 
To conclude the night, the mini stocks got added to the night’s card and did not disappoint with a thrilling race to the win down the stretch.  Eric Weis led the first nine laps of the race, but when he barely slipped up the track with just a few laps remaining, Dante Mancuso, of Batavia, knew it was time to capitalize and drove up to the lead.  Familiar foe Brad Shepard would challenge Mancuso down the stretch, but Dante was able to drive off for his third win of the season,  Shepard would cross in second, with Weis, Cole Susice and Chris Leone completing the top five.
 
There will be no standard racing at Genesee this Saturday because of the Genesee County Fair but will resume next Saturday, July 28, as Carquest Auto Parts presents a “Super 6 at 6:00” program.  For more information, visit www.Genesee-Speedway.com.
