The Story From Eriez… Hooks Capitalizes; Genco shows determinaton; Kinney, Miller, Horton Dominate

The drivers of the Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series invaded Eriez Speedway on Sunday and they didn’t disappoint. The first of two visits by the touring series saw 42 pro stocks signing in to the Hammett, PA facility to race for the $1000 winners share on a sunny and warm evening. Other classes racing that night were the Rush Late Models, Outlaw E-Mods, Economods, and the Challengers; The Super Late Models had the night off.

Jason Fosnaught and Chris McGuire lead the field of 24 cars to the green flag in the evening’s top feature event. McGuire lead the first lap followed closely by Jason Fosnaught, Daryl Charlier, Hunter Exley and Anthony Marotto.  Exley and Paul Davis were the early movers, finding their way to third and fourth positions by lap 4 and battling side by side on laps 5 and 6. With six laps in the books, Charlier spun in turn four in front of the field, collecting Davis in the process bringing out the first caution of the race. McGuire and Fosnaught brought the field back to green, racing the entire circuit side by side for the lead position. Fosnaught cleared McGuire the next lap, and the caution again flew shortly there after for Douglas Eck who slowed on the front stretch due to a flat tire.

Fosnaught lead the next restart over McGuire and Exley who battled side by side with Exley bringing out the yellow again a lap later by spinning in turn 2. The race slowed again the next lap for a turn 4 incident involving Daryl Charlier, Zach Gustafson, John Boardman, Douglas Eck, and Kyle Couchenour in a lengthy caution.  The ensuing restart found Fosnaught, McGuire, and a charging Shaun Hooks 3 wide off of 2 for the lead. McGuire took the lead on lap 17. Two laps later, Gustafson spun in turn two, bringing out the caution. McGuire lead the single file restart over Bobby Whitling, Hooks, Jackson Humanic, and Fosnaught. Whitling and McGuire traded blows over the next two laps, with neither drawing clear of the other until they got together in turn 4 of lap 22, with McGuire catapulting over Whitling’s drivers side front tire. This contact slowed both, allowing Hooks to drive to the lead. Whitling’s damaged car found the turn four wall with one to go bringing out a late race restart. Hooks lead Humanic, Exley and Mcguire on the final restart and wouldn’t look back taking the $1000 payday.
