By: Pam Baker

Marble, PA …. July 11, 2020…. Erick Rudolph had plans on attending Land of Legends Speedway on Saturday night, but Mother Nature changed his mind. With the Canandaigua, NY track cancelling early, this left several race teams with the opportunity to join the BRP Modified Tour at Sharon Speedway for the running of the 12th Annual Lou Blaney Memorial Race, including Rudolph. Thirty-nine cars were on hand for the event with nine cars making the haul from the state of New York.

By luck of the draw the front row for the start of the 35-lap feature found Eric Gabany and Brian Swartzlander leading the pack of 26 cars to the drop of the green flag. Before a lap could be completed the yellow flew when Kevin Hoffman, Dave Reges, Chris Rudolph and Phil Vigneri, III all came together in the second turn. No one was injured and everyone was able to restart.

Once the green flew again, Brian Swartzlander took command of the race with Gabany, Garrett Krummert and Michael Maresca in tow. The race went green to lap 12 when the caution flew for Colton Walters and Maresca. On the restart, Krummert who had worked his way into second was able to take the lead away from Swartzlander and by this time, eleventh place starter, Erick Rudolph was in third. Another caution on lap sixteen for Dave Murdick grouped the field together once again with Krummert in the lead and Rudolph in second.

The caution flew again on lap seventeen for Steve Slater and on lap nineteen Rudolph used the high side of the track to make the pass on Krummert and never looked back to pick up his third BRP Modified Tour race in four events and his first $2,000 Lou Blaney Memorial race.

Finishing behind Rudolph was Krummert, Swartzlander and Rex King, Jr. who started in the fourteenth position. Brad Rapp had a great run coming from the twelfth starting position to finish fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Jim Rasey, Ryan Susice, Greg Martin who had to run the B-Main to qualify for the feature and started twenty-first, Rex King, Sr. and Phil Vigneri, III who started twenty-third in the field.

Heat races were won by Rex King, Sr., Erick Rudolph, Chad Brachmann and Garrett Krummert. The B-Main was won by Greg Martin.

The BRP Modified Tour will be heading to Thunder Mountain Speedway for their next event on Friday, July 24th. Thunder Mountain Speedway is located just off of the Brookville, PA exit off I-80.

                         Erick Rudolph Comes From 26th to Win at Lernerville Speedway

By: Pam Baker

Marble, PA……07/03/2020…….It was hotter than a firecracker on Friday night at Lernerville Speedway on the 4th of July weekend for the second race on the BRP Modified Tour schedule. There were 32 cars in the pit area for the event with three drivers, Phil Vigneri, III, Chad Brachmann and Eric Rudolph making the journey south from New York to run with the BRP Modified Tour.

Garrett Krummert and Rex King, Sr. led the 26 car field to the drop of the green flag with Krummert jumping out into the lead on the first lap ahead of King, Sr., Steve Feder and Brian Swartzlander. Lap two found the yellow fly for Ryan Riffe whose car slid off the third turn banking. The restart found Krummert once again in command of the lead but two laps later the yellow flew once again as a pile of cars in turn one slowed the action. Ricky Richner was sidelined after this accident, but everyone else was able to continue. On lap six, with King, Sr., having taken the lead away from Krummert, and tenth place starter Eric Rudolph in third the caution flew as Brian Swartzlander connected with Rudolph and spun Rudolph around in a circle bringing out the yellow flag.

Rudolph was able to get restarted and rejoined the field in the 25th position which was the last caution period of the race. King, Sr., and Krummert battled for the lead with King, Sr. gaining a couple car lengths on Krummert and by lap eleven started lapping cars. Meanwhile, working traffic methodically from the back of the pack Rudolph had made his way up to seventh by lap eighteen and by lap twenty-two was in fourth position. King, Sr. once again got into lapped traffic on lap twenty-eight and that is what played a part in the outcome of the race.

Lap thirty-two found heavy lapped traffic in front of King, Sr. which caught King, Sr. on the bottom of the track. Krummert and Rudolph entered turn four on the high side and Rudolph used that to his advantage to pass Krummert and King, Sr. who was tied up in traffic to take the lead away and went on to pick up the $2,000 win.

King, Sr. was able to hang on for second with Krummert riding home third. Fourth went to Rex King, Jr. who started 12th in the field. Fifth was captured by Brian Swartzlander.

Heats were won by Rex King, Sr., Garrett Krummert, Jeremiah Shingledecker and John Mollick. The B-Main was won by Tom Glenn.

Feature: Erick Rudolph, Rex King, Sr., Garrett Krummert, Rex King, Jr., Brian Swartzlander, Eric Gabany, Dave Murdick, Chad Brachmann, John Mollick, Phil Vigneri, III, Steve Feder, Rick Regalski, Paul Kot, Brad Rapp, Jim Rasey, Chris Rudolph, Mike Turner, Tom Glenn, Kevin Long, Steve Slater, Steve Barr, Jeremiah Shingledecker, Ryan Riffe, Rodney Beltz, Colton Walters, Ricky Richner.

Eric Rudolph Captures Second Win of the Weekend in BRP Modified Tour Action at Tyler County

By: Pam Baker

Marble, PA…July 5, 2020…..Racing action with the BRP Modified Tour was hot for the 4th of July weekend and the BRP Modified Tour ventured to The Bullring of Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV on July 4th.

Twenty-six cars made the journey to the speedway, but the action was delayed a couple of times, one for a medical emergency in the grandstand area and second as the lights on the backstretch when out when squirrels chewed the wires off in the transformer.

Once the action started the starting lineup for the feature was the same as Friday night as Garrett Krummert drew the pole position with Rex King, Sr. outside the front row. Several caution periods created a problem trying to get the first lap in the record books, but once it did Garrett Krummert came out ahead of King, Sr. Krummert paced the field until fifth place starter, Eric Rudolph took the lead away on a restart and survived several more cautions. At the end of the 35-lap feature Rudolph was in the lead and captured the $3,000 prize money and his second win in two-days.

Rex King, Jr. was able to pass his father, Rex King, Sr. for second. King, Sr. finished a solid third with Jim Rasey fourth and Brad Rapp having a good showing coming from the seventeenth starting position to finish fifth.

The point standings are very close with Rex King, Sr. leading by one point over Garrett Krummert. Rex King, Jr. is sitting in third with Jim Rasey fourth and Dave Murdick fifth.

The next race on the BRP Modified Tour schedule will be held on Saturday, July 11th at Sharon Speedway for the running of the Lou Blaney Memorial race.

Feature Finish: Eric Rudolph, Rex King, Jr., Rex King, Sr., Jim Rasey, Brad Rapp, Chad Brachmann, Garrett Krummert, Dave Murdick, Phil Vigneri, III, Rick Regalski, Ricky Richner, Chris Rudolph, Paul Kot, Ralph McBride, Mark Frankhouser, Rodney Beltz, Randy Chronister, Steve Slater, Cory Riffe, Kevin Hoffman, Steve Barr, Tom Glenn, Eric Gabany, Shawn Kozar, Jeremiah Shingledecker, Dillon Barr – DNS.
