Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series powered by Can-Am Double Feature events at PPMS - Chris Schneider wins 8th Annual Ed Laboon Memorial for $4,017 and Rusty Martz takes home $1,000 for Wee Willie White Memorial!

 

 

For Immediate Release

August 18, 2019 (Sandy Lake, PA) What a great night of racing at PPMS for the Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series powered by Can-Am 8th Annual Ed Laboon Memorial make-up and Wee Willie White Memorial event.  Despite Mother Nature delaying racing action for over 2 hours with a 20 minute shower just after hot lap sessions, the track crew worked hard to get the show in and did just that. 

 

Kicking off the night, once the track surface was race worthy, was the make-up Ed Laboon Memorial Dobs Non-Qualifier 15 lap feature.  Out of the 15 cars scheduled to start the race 11 returned to battle for the $517 payday.  James Fosnaught #20J and Brett McDonald led the field to green with Fosnaught commanding the lead on lap 1.  McDonald kept Fosnaught in his sights and took the top spot on lap 4.  On lap 5 the 20J spun in turn 4 to bring out the race’s first caution.  The restart had McDonald with Josh Seippel #84S to the outside followed by Shaun Hooks #65 and Davy Lee #96L in the second row.  Lee powered his machine to the lead out of turn 2 over McDonald as Seipple fell to 3rd and Hooks to 4th.  The battle for the top spot ensued as McDonald kept the pace with Lee followed by Seipple and Hooks with Bryan Wagner #56 in the mix.  Hooks took over 3rd on lap 10 and one lap later Wagner advanced to 4th with Seipple slipping back to 5th.  On lap 12, Lee experienced mechanical woes on the front stretch making contact with McDonald and Hooks, sending Hooks spinning into the front stretch barrier to bring out the 2nd and final caution.  Lee exited to the pits giving McDonald the lead with Wagner to his outside on the restart.  McDonald was able to hold on for the win with Wagner in 2nd followed by 9th starter Gary Koteles, Seippel in 4th and Hooks rounding out the top 5. 

 

Following the great racing action in the Dobs Non-Qualifier, the Ed Laboon Memorial Main event was just as exciting for fans to watch.  With 3 laps in from the June 1st event, leading the 25 car field to green for the remaining 27 laps to go were Chris Schneider #55 and Charlier #114.  Charlier rocketed to the lead over Schneider with Rusty Martz #16M and Jackson Humanic #17 in tow.  The field provided door-to-door racing from front to back.  The first caution flag would fly on lap 7 for a slowing Martz on the front stretch.  With Martz exiting to the pits for a flat tire, Todd Weldon would restart in the 4th position beside Humanic.  Schneider had the edge on Charlier at the start and would take over the lead but Charlier kept Schneider in his sights and the battle between the two along with Humanic kept fans on the edge of their seats.  On lap 14 the leaders began dealing with lap traffic and Weldon would exit to the pits advancing Bobby Whitling to 4th and 16th starter Chris McGuire in 5th.  On lap 17, Whitling found his way to the pits as he experienced mechanical issues putting McGuire in 4th and Greg Beach in the 5th spot.  On lap 18, Humanic would pressure Charlier for the runner up position as the two raced side by side, while keeping the 55 in striking distance.  On lap 21, Charlier would find the long run was in his favor as he surged past Schneider for the lead.  The yellow on lap 22 for a tangle on the back stretch had Charlier and Schneider leading the remaining field of 19 cars back to green.  The two continued to put on a great show with Schneider in the lead on lap 23.  The final caution flew on lap 28 as Charlier pulled into the pits.  Schneider would chose outside putting Humanic to his inside on the restart followed by McGuire and 11th starter Randy Wyant to make up the second row.  Schneider powered his SS Chassis for the last two laps to the checkered picking up the $4,017 win and his second Ed Laboon Memorial win.  Humanic finished a solid 2nd over Wyant, Curt Bish #29 in 4th and McGuire rounding out the top 5.  Martz made his way from the back after returning from the pits to finish 6th, Rusty Moore #17M came home in 7th, Hunter Exley #23HJR in 8th, Jeff Broniszewski in 9th, and Rod Laskey rounds out the top 10.

 

The Wee Willie White Memorial had 40 cars registered for $1,000 to-win.  Drivers battled in four heat races with five advancing to the A main and 2 participating in a redraw for starting position.  Heat race winners included Curt Bish #29, Chris McGuire #63, Hunter Exley #23HJR, and Rusty Martz #16M.  One B Main gave drivers one last chance to race into the A Main as 4 drivers advanced.  Winner of the B Main was Randy Wyant #11T.

 

As a result of the redraw, Rod Laskey #1R and McGuire would lead the field of 23 cars to green in the 20 lap race.  McGuire edged Laskey for the lead.  On lap 3, Martz advanced to the runner up spot over Laskey.  The first caution flag would fly on lap 3 for a slowing Shaun Hooks on the front stretch as the fire safety crew had to extinguish flames under his #65 machine.  Under yellow several cars, including earlier ELM winner Chris Schneider #55, Gary Koteles #64K, Josh Langer #11, retired to the pits not to return.  Racing would resume with McGuire and Martz side by side with Laskey and Jason Fousnaught #73 making up row 2.  Martz commanded the lead over McGuire while Laskey slipped back to 5th, Fosnaught to 3rd and Bish #29 to 4th.  The second caution flag would fly on lap 7 for McGuire as he experienced a flat tire.  Martz restarted with Fosnaught at his side, Bish in 3rd and 8th starter Exley in 4th.  A strong start for Exley found him battling side by side Martz for the lead with Exley taking the top spot on lap 13.  A restart on lap 14 for 3rd runner Bish bunched the field back up with Exley at the helm, Martz to his side and Rusty Moore#17M and 13th starter Jeff Broniszewski #08 in the second row.  Again side by side racing resumed between Martz and Exley with Martz leading laps 15 and 16 before Exley took the lead on lap 17 just as the fourth caution flag of the race waved for 3rd place runner Broniszewski.  Exley and Martz led the field to green with Moore and Fosnaught in 3rd and 4th.  Green flag racing was short lived as the red quickly stopped action due to a tangle in turn 2 involving Moore, Laskey, and Nick Kocuba #10.  When racing got underway, debris would bring out the final caution flag and send Tim Bish to the pits.  Martz would edge Exley on the final start and the two would continue to battle for the lead for the remaining 3 laps with Martz taking the checkers just .101 seconds over Exley.  Fosnaught finished in 3rd, 17th starter Humanic in 4th and 21st starter Wyant in 5th.  Bish #29 came home in 6th, Chris Withers #21W in 7th followed by McGuire in 8th, Curt Bish #00 in 9th, and Nick Kocuba #10 rounding out the top 10.         

 

The Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series powered by Can-Am will be back in action on Sunday, August 25th at Eriez Speedway.  The Dog Hollow event scheduled for August 31st has been removed from the Homak Penn Ohio 2019 schedule.
