Hanson captures modified feature at Glen Ridge

Monday, July 07, 2014 - Updated: 9:19 AM

FULTONVILLE -- On a perfect Independence Day night of racing Friday, Craig Hanson (modified), Kurtis Hohensheldt (sportsman), Nick Stone (pro stock), Don Greco (vintage) and Pete Vila (4-cylinder) came away as victors in their respective divisions at the Glen Ridge Motorsports Park.

With the winner's share of the modified purse up to $3,711, it was a fast-paced race to grab the cash that saw Hanson overtake early leader Bobby Vedder on lap five while reigning track champion Bobby Varin slid into third. Varin moved into second by lap nine, and the two former track champions quickly made it a two-car race for the win.

The two continued to lead throughout the race, with Varin taking over the front on lap 18 and opening up a sizable lead. However, on lap 29, Varin got into some water on the inside of the track in turn two and spun, bringing out the yellow flag. Because the yellow was waved for Varin, he was placed to the rear of the field and Hanson inherited the lead. He was challenged over the final laps by Jackie Brown and JaMike Sowle, but Hanson held on for his second win of the season over Brown, Sowle, Josh Hohenforst and Varin, who charged back through the field after his spin.

After running the race of his life a week earlier in coming up just short against Mark Mortensen, Canajoharie's Hohensheldt came back and wouldn't be denied his first sportsman win at The Ridge. Hohensheldt grabbed the early lead and never relinquished it, reaching the checkered flag ahead of his brother, Brian Pessolano.

In the 20-lap pro stock feature, Stone started fourth and moved to the lead by lap two and stayed there until driving into victory lane. In the vintage modified feature, Greco shrugged off a challenge from Darrel Hulbert to win, while in the 4-cylinder feature, Vila took the lead by lap two and led all the way to the finish.
