2012 ASCC Wrangler Cup Series Race 3 (New York 200)

Post by Blake Camphausen on Tue Sep 11, 2012 11:18 pm

(OCC:Sorry for the delay, I've been very busy recently and cannot find time to do videos. Until I get a normal schedule going, I'll be doing text reviews.)

Aaron McLaw lead the field to the green with Bill Calhoun to his outside, Nikki Curtis, AJ Murphy and Roman Musico rounding out the top 5. The race was a lot of the usual superspeedway shuffle. So I will skip around quite a bit. The first note worthy thing happened on lap 6. Tony Durbin lead lap five, and going into turn 1, Travis Marshall got under him, and Craig Jonser got under him. They went three wide but sorted it out, Jonser coming away with the lead. However this put Durbin on the far outside lane of the track, and when he merged into the top lane going down the back he forced himself, Casey Lester, and Steven Gill three wide. However, they ended up sorting it out off of four, everyone getting back into 2 rows.

By around lap 15, the field was racing as sort of two large packs very close to eachother, the lead pack racing 2 lanes side by side, and the back half of the field, racing three wide.

The first yellow flew on lap 22, with Joe Olenick leading. Jason Richardson got into the back of Travis Marshall exiting the tri-oval, as they came down the track; Richardson’s rear end clipped the nose of Darren Moore. The two saved it and merged back onto the track, but Moore had slowed enough that Jack Bohart got alongside him, the two came together and wrecked into turn 1, Collecting Steven Gill and Christopher Hobbes in the process. Gill ended up rolling over after spinning in turns one and two. Gill was the only one to retire from the wreck.

On lap 27, Aaron Collins pits with a flat tire from 35th place. While merging back onto the track, the field comes up to lap Collins. Collins pulls up, about 30 mph off the pace, and holds up most of the bottom line. This allows the front 7, lead by Bill Calhoun to pull away from the rest of the field, for now. By about lap 32, the lead group was back together for the most part. However, the next lap, Lorne Roth, who is about 20 mph slower than everyone else, is caught by the pack, holding up everyone except Mike Whitmore. Whitmore was not caught until the very beginning of 35 when Tony Durbin tried to take the lead in the center of the tri-oval.

Despite this the lead pack was much smaller than it had been before due to lapped traffic. On lap 42, the field AGAIN caught Roth. This time handing the massive lead over to Casey Lester in the 26. Lester wasn’t caught until the entrance to turn 1 on lap 44, this time by Ethan Everett.

On lap 47, the lead group of only 12 cars caught Paul Harding in the 1. Due to the sheer lack of cars to hold up, Garth McCallister’s lead was only increased by about a car length and a half. Which was quickly erased, until they caught a pack of three more backmarkers! This time Tim Averill, Ike Durbin, and Joe Burns.

The field again caught a backmarker on lap 51, TJ Stewart in the 0. But by this point there was so little of a pack to destroy that he did little damage, but he was still a moving chicane.

The field caught Roth for a THIRD time in 19 laps on lap 52. Roth held up the entire inside line, giving the lead to Richardson and Miller Jr. Both of which drafted together to gain a massive lead.

A caution flew on lap 55, the second one of the race, a debris caution. Richardson lead them to the restart on lap 59. However, if you thought this yellow would solve the Lorne Roth problem, you have another thing coming.

On Lap 67, he held up the field another time. This time a group of about 7 or 8 pulled away from the rest of the pack, held up by Roth.

On lap 71, the group of cars caught Philip Kaslow, who proved to be slightly less irritating then Roth as he was slightly more on pace then Roth was. Despite this Kaslow actually regrouped the lead cars with the pack by holding them up.

The field then caught Bobby Miller Jr, who held them up, but only slightly. While this was going on, midpack, Richardson blew up, ending his day just 17 laps away from the finish.

The field caught Paul Harding and Ike Durbin again. Both of which held up the leaders. However, the pack didn’t really feel its ill effects, because Roth was caught, once again segmenting the field into two groups.

Wineburg was caught on lap 78, but had very little effect on the lead group, as almost all of them slipped by without an issue.

A yellow flew on lap 82, 9 laps from the finish. Mike Whitmore, running toward the back of the lead group, blows his engine and slows on the track. He tries to pull onto the apron, but the car suddenly pushes up the track, into Tony Durbin. They spin in turn one, collecting Wineburg. Whitmore slides down the track before getting drilled in the door by the 11 of Curtis. Tommy Nash in the 7 checks up, before the 28 of Aaron Collins runs him over and he spins down the track, everyone checks up to avoid him, moving up the track, this causes Curtis Darcy and Roman Musico to spin. Anthony Evans was then collected as Tony Durbin merged back onto the track.

Tim Woodard lead the field to the green with 4 laps to go. Dan Richards took the lead early in the lap, and held it until 2 laps to go, when Aaron McLaw took the lead. Entering turn 3, with 2 laps to go, Joe Olenick took the lead. On the last lap going into turn 1, Jim Kidd took the lead away from Olenick. No one would be able to catch him and Jim Kidd would drive away to his first win of the season.

Nash Frustrated by Outing in New York

Thomas Nash and his team had been struggling all weekend at the New York Autoring. The were 4-tenths off of the pole run of Aaron McLaw, setting Nash and his #7 Quaker State Bolden to a 21st starting position. Things did not really improve for the team. Nash lead 1 lap, mostly due to the constant shuffling of positions at the massive superspeedway. He would end up being caught up in somebody else's mess, and he retired with just 8 laps remaining in the 90 lap race. He finished 30th.

Nash retired due to a large wreck on lap 82, which saw the cars of Mike Whitmore, Tony Durbin, and others spinning and wrecking. Whitmore was slowing on the apron near turn one when his car came back up track, drilling Durbin. Nash was also collected when he tried to check up, and was hit in the back by Aaron Collins. Curtis Darcy, Roman Musico, and Anthony Evans were also involved.

"I have no idea what was happening out there. We had cars that were so far off of the pace, that they were a hazard to both them and the field. They broke up the field so much, you couldn't really advance your position. Whitmore... I don't know what happened to him, if it was a sudden mechanical problem or not, so I won't necessarily put the blame on him, but when you see wrecking ahead and smoke, you usually use the breaks. Some people behind me did not, and it killed our car and our day. Really frustrating when you get involved in others dang-ole mess," said Nash before disappearing into his hauler.

Nash now sits 32nd in points thanks to his second DNF in a row. He's 65 points behind points leader Joe Olenick.

Uhh, why are you guys putting your responses into a spoiler-- it's a text review with no video forthcoming?

On that note, Jim Kidd finally wins a race and there's no video footage of it for posterity to see! Laughing

The "Kidd" Finally Wins One!

"Did I really win or is this some post concussion hallucination?" shouted an exuberant Jim Kidd.

Ike Durbin: Engine problems slowed us all race, it finally gave towards the end. Oh well, this is my last drive in the car anyway, and it's been miserable, so back to TM Lights. Hope Anderson does well.
