Broderick Grabs the Cash Harvey Gets the Crown at Woodhull
Jimmy “Bubba” Broderick grabbed the top spot and the $1000 winners share for the second week in a row on the A-Verdi Storage Containers CNYMS tour. It took the caution for him to do it as he stated in victory lane in front of the cheering fans at Vern Wasson’s Woodhull Raceway. “Jared (Fink) had us covered but with the caution I had a shot”. Broderick took it to the extreme high side and made it work getting around Rick Hench and Jared Fink in the closing laps.
The racing surface was near perfect throughout the night with the Mini Sprints laying down some 14.5 second laps on the high banks a full second and a half quicker than any other division in attendance. The “A”-main would come to green with the 1 of Rick Hench on the pole and Jared Fink to his outside. The second row was made up of Bobby Lynt and the tour previous $1000 race winner Broderick. Young John Zych and tour point champ Don Harvey. From the drop of the green Fink got the jump going into turn 1 with Hench, Harvey, Broderick and Mike Kiser making up the top 5. Fink pulled away but the positions were changing for spots 2 through 10 on a consistent basis. With a blistering pace being set, the leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 6 and that had everyone on their feet watching the quick action on the track. The leaders had to pick their lines making passes high and low around the fast smooth surface.
On lap 17 the first of only 2 caution flags waved for the 77 & 18 of Lynt and Jamie Kiser bunching up the field with several lapped cars in the mix. On the very next lap, 4th running Mike Kiser got around coming off turn four setting up a 6 lap dash to the finish. When racing resumed it was right back to the same thing with no room for error from the top spot back. Another bid for the lead found Broderick move around Hench as he ran down Fink. With 5 to go the 21 & 5 were side by side with Hench just behind them. The Brookfield Bullet hung on and came across the line just ahead of Fink, Hench, Harvey and Art Kiser who rounded out the top 5.
Don Harvey II who locked up the 2006 A-Verdi Storage Containers / CNYMS tour championship a week earlier at Penn Can Speedway was congratulated by all in attendance for his hard fought battle and well deserved championship crown. All of the teams will celebrate the season at the annual awards banquet to be held November 11, 2006 at the historic Hotel Utica.
