WIGHT 2 OF 4 IN LAND OF LEGENDS BIG-BLOCK ACTION, SOBOTKA EARNS CAREER FIRST

Posted Jun 22, 2020 by David

By Tom Skibinski | Jun 20, 2020 - Contending at Canandaigua until his family-owned Fulton Speedway opens in the coming weeks due to the pandemic, Wight has quickly found a second home for his #99L FX Caprara Honda-Tracey Road Equipment/Bicknell ride on Saturday nights.

“We seemed to have figured something out (here), the car is working well for us,” understated Wight, who kicked off the season in February down south by winning three features during the annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia (Fla.) Speedway Park.
“We’re able to make changes to (car) and it reacts, seems we’ve been making it faster and faster so we’re heading in the right direction.”

Pole-sitter Gil Tegg Jr. led his first laps of the season the first steering the back-up #22G A&G Food Service-All-Star Pizza/Bicknell entry, yet the high-flying Wight was no match for the 26-car starting field. Wight took the opening green flag in 12th and with just five laps scored improved to seventh. A sudden surge of power around Tim Fuller and Eldon Payne Jr. carried Wight from fourth to second on lap 13 before he darted under Tegg exiting turn four to author the lone lead change on lap 16.

“Up top, just too much dust there and the bottom had a ton of brown where you could put the left side in,” noted Wight, describing his switch from the high line to the inside lane to make the winning pass. “I was able to get a real good run off the corner. I knew there wasn’t anyone behind me that was gonna be able to roll the top so it was basically stay on the bottom and if I see a nose then worry about it.”

“This car has been phenomenal since day one, think its got four races on it and now two wins. Hopefully, we can get all the New York State tracks back open and everybody can start having fun,” added Wight, addressing only family and the viewers at home through Land of Legends TV as the fairgrounds grandstands remained empty with COVID-19 mandates still in effect.

With the initial 24 laps run off caution-free, the race behind Wight was a bigger attraction as all the top guns traded paint and swapped positions lap after lap over the second half of the headline 35-lapper. Finishing a straightaway behind in second was Justin Haers followed by 17th-place starter Jimmy Phelps, WNY traveler Matt Farnham, last weekend’s winner Erick Rudolph, Tim Fuller and all-time LOLR feature winner Alan Johnson.
