Harvey Does the Double Dip at Albany
Don Harvey II has been on a roll with a new found lucky number man in his pits. Randy, Don’s brother has picked the front row three weeks in a row for the potent 44 and Don has certainly has capitalized on the situation picking up three wins in a row. As the saying goes “it’s always nice to be good but it’s better to be lucky”, stated Harvey in a post race interview.
The first show of the night was the rained out event from June 2nd. The front row found the 44 of Harvey and the 5 of Broderick side by side at the flag. Bubba gave it everything he had in the first set of turns but Harvey pulled away off the bottom of 2 and never looked back. The track was heavy and fast and the 44 was on rails. Jared Fink in his 21 car was charging through the pack from his last row start and the battle for 3rd was between the 2 Kiser cars & Greg Hoffman.
At the finish it would be Harvey, Broderick, Mike Kiser, Fink, and Art. Kiser, making up the top five.
In the second program of the night the luck of the draw would be a repeat of the front row with the 44 and 5. The following rows would find Fink and VanDusen, Phillips and Wood and row 4 with some international flair with M. Kiser and to his outside was New Zealander Phillipa Melrose in the Haskell Motorsports 7C Bailey.
The start to this “A” Main looked just like the first one with the exception of about 10 cars running for 2nd or 3rd place. Only 2 cautions would fly bunching the field but Harvey continued to pull away. The battle for the 2nd to 7th was a good one with several lanes being used around the very fast 4/10th speed plant. At the end of the 20 lap affair it would be Harvey once again followed by Mike Kiser, Broderick, Fink, Wood, VanDusen, G. Hoffman, Phillips, A. Kiser and rounding out the top ten was Jon Moore. Young “Philly” Melrose made here evening count running a consistent 12th at the finish. Heat wins went to Rich Wood Jr. and Mike Kiser.
The Broderick Motorsports $50.00 Hard Charger awards went to Fink & M. Kiser, Zych & Wood picked up the $25.00 Dry Wash N Guard Waterless Car wash awards, Lampron & VanDusen picked up the Ultimate Wings $25.00 certificate and the Spectro Oils awards went to Hagar & Phillips.
