George Foley had a turn of fortune in the Ernie's Tools DIRTcar Modified 30-lap feature Saturday on Casella Night. One week after a losing battle with the first turn wall during qualifying, Foley started on the pole and went wire-to-wire for his 12th career win.
Opening day winner Todd Stone finished second two car-lengths away after slipping underneath Jessey Mueller (3rd) coming off the fourth turn on the final lap.
Mueller had tracked Foley after passing Chris Cayea for second on lap 16 of the 30-lap event. The race had four cautions, but on each restart was able to retain the lead.
Pierre Berthiaume ran with the leaders most of the way to finish fourth. Kris Vernold caught Cayea on the white flag lap for fifth. Cayea, Maxime Viens, Leon Gonyo, Andy Heywood and Mike Wells completed the top ten.
In the Adirondack Water Limited Late Model feature, Larry Underwood (white No. 73) topped Shawn Duquette (No. 18) in one of the closest Airborne finishes ever.
Underwood, racing to the outside of Duquette, had maintained a half-car length advantage for several laps midway through the race after the two had swapped the lead three times earlier. Duquette drew even on lap 22. The cars touched for the first and only time on the next to last lap.
Travis Bruno, Codie Aubin and Nick Heywood finished 1-2-3 in the J7S Steel Sportsman Modified feature.
Robbie Favreau (Renegades) and Jayson Criss (Mini Modifieds) also came away with feature wins.
