Larry Wight Wins Exciting Fulton Speedway Modified Race Of The Year In Dramatic Fashion

Posted Jul 14, 2019 by David

FULTON, NY – JULY 13, 2019 - Lapped traffic, slide jobs, lead changes and the top-five running under a blanket highlighted the 35-lap Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modified feature Saturday night at the Fulton Speedway.

The final handful of laps came down to a shootout between Larry Wight and Rob Bellinger who battled in lapped traffic throwing slide jobs, lead changes all right in the middle of heavy traffic trying not to go down a lap.

The last lap would see Wight leading going into turn three on the high side with Bellinger throwing his car as hard as he could into turn- three and would slide up the track inches in front of Wight in turn four. Wight was able to turn back under Bellinger winning the drag race down the front straight by a slim 0.184 of a second at the checkers.

Aj Kingsley and Joe Shields would bring the 28-car Modified field to the green with Shields leading the opening lap with Tyler Trump taking the lead one lap later.

Trump and Billy Whittaker were in a two-car breakaway at the front of the field with Shields, Kingsley and Jeff McGinnis showing in the top-five.

The caution would wave on lap-10 slowing the two and three-wide battles throughout the pack.

Trump, who was running the high groove out front before the yellow, chose the inside for the restart. Whittaker took advantage of the quick outside lane to blast into the lead.

On lap 15 Whittaker opened a slim five-car length advantage over Trump with McGinnis, Rob Bellinger and Larry Wight who started 18th staying within striking distance of the top-two.

Whittaker was on rails on lap 20 building a full straightway lead leaving McGinnis, with Bellinger, Wight and Ron Davis III battling for third through fifth.

With 10 to go Whittaker held a two second lead as McGinnis, Bellinger and Wight started to slowly cut into the lead with the back of the field starting to play a part in the race.

On lap 28 Whittaker caught the back of the field who were racing two and three-wide allowing Bellinger, Wight and McGinnis to close while throwing slide jobs on each other for position.

With 5 laps to go, the intensity was turned to its highest level as you could have thrown a blanket over Whittaker, Bellinger, Wight and McGinnis as they kept changing positions all around the speedway still in heavy traffic within inches of each other.

Through all the swapping of positions while still in traffic using every inch of the speedway in the top-five, Wight would lead Bellinger by a half-a-car on lap 31. Bellinger would fight back throwing a slide job into the lead on lap 33. Wight wasn’t done yet, throwing a high-speed slide job of his own exiting turn four coming down to the flagger’s white flag.

On the final lap, Larry Wight blasted down the back straightaway with Rob Bellinger hot on his heels. Going into turn three Wight ran the top with Bellinger throwing his car right on the ragged racer’s edge slide job coming up in front of Wight by inches at the exit of turn four. Instead of slowing his pace to not hit Bellinger, Wight turned under Bellinger not losing his momentum and would blast down the front straight even with Bellinger and winning by a very slim 0.184 of a second at the checkers.
