ULMS: Stone Dominant at Tri-City ULMS Stop

Series report

FRANKLIN, Pa. - July 1. The Northern Tier ULMS Late Model Series rolled into Tri City Speedway for the second time this year and for night two of the ULMS “Firecracker Tour”. “Big Brother” Dan Stone of Thompson, Pa. made the five hour trip pay off as he dominated the field enroute to his second ever ULMS win and his second ever Tri-City Speedway win.

Stone and local legend, Wally Fox paced the 22 car field to Mark Matthews green flag and Stone quickly jumped into the lead as Bump Hedman followed Stone into second. As the first lap was completed Fox had slipped back to fourth behind Stone, Hedman and ULMS point leader Mike Knight. As David Scott left the track with motor problems, Russ King made his presence known on lap three by entering the top five.

With the AMB transponder showing Stone with a average lap speed of over 101 mph, his Excavating Rocket had a four-second lead, but the first yellow came out on lap six that would eliminate Stone’s big margin as the eastern Pennsylvania star, Bud Phillips got into the back of Darrell Bossard, ending Phillips' night. Two laps later, Denton Boyer destroyed his motor and the caution returned.

The lineup had Knight and Rob Blair sitting second and third behind Stone, but the restart saw Blair get out of shape at the start and chaos took over as the cars of WoO Rookie of Year candidate, John Lobb, Chris Hackett, Matt Lux and Pete Alspaugh all got together on the front stretch, ending the night for Hackett and Lux.

On the restart, Russ King was on the move as he took over third from Blair, and the yellow lights came back on for Fox, who spun in turn two. Blair slowed dramatically and exited for the pits before returning for the restart.

As Knight tried to shadow Stone, lap 12 saw Ron Davies charge his way to third, and Brent Rhebergen up to fourth. The three car battle for sixth had Dupont, Barton and Lobb running tight against each other behind the top five cars.

After Brent Rhebergen broke on lap 13, Jason Dupont got a great restart and charged into fourth. With ten to go, Stone had checked out and Knight was comfortable in second with King all alone in third. The battle was for fourth between Hedman and Davies. With five laps remaining, Davies would get back by Hedman for fourth, but up front, Stone had lapped up to the eighth place car of Alspaugh, and as the checkers flew, Stone put seventh place finisher Dupont down a lap.
