Mulrooney, Jr. Victorious at Darlington!

In what was certainly the most intense race of the year, Darlington saw key contenders Justin Bland (pole sitter), Brian Mercurio and Jacob Fisher take turns pacing the field. However, by the end of event it was Aaron Mulrooney, Jr. edging Jacob Fisher to the line for his first victory in the VSCRA! The race slowed down 9 different times for a total of 44 laps, over a third of the race. It was survival of the fittest and tire management 101 in the 128 lap event. Newcomers Michael Frisch and Jake Miller showed some strength taking turns running up front and showing they’ll be contenders at some point this season. Points leader in, Kyle Riley ends up with a frustrating night after a couple accidents and falls to 3rd in points to Jacob Fisher and Brian Mercurio after a 12th place finish. Ryan Nawrocki takes his second hard charger award of the year and holds his top five in points with the effort of a 7th place finish. Timmy Pacchioli has showed up, starting 5th and finishing 6th to round out the top five in points. Next week the series takes on the short track of Richmond Raceway.

Mercurio Shows Off in Delaware!

Brian Mercurio showed up for the second race of the season ready to go. He started on pole, and aside from some green flag stops, essentially led flag to flag. The race was slowed down via two incidents, one early and one late which flipped the strategy a few drivers had going on it’s lid and setup the field for a quick dash to the finish. Newcomer Chase Alvey had a strong showing with Jacob Fisher, but got hurt by the late caution and relegated to 6th and 7th, respectively. Kyle Riley continued his success, as well as Ryan Nawrocki as they finished 2nd and 4th, putting Riley atop the points lead. Matt Wishart was another new name, from the FTF Racing League and had a strong showing with the right strategy, leading to a 3rd place finish. Jon Palmieri followed up his Daytona win with a frustrating 24th place finish after being involved in the final accident of the day. Next week the series heads to Watkins Glen where anyone can come out on top…

Palmieri Dominates Daytona!

Jon Palmieri was a man on a MISSION in the Inaugural National Premier Series Daytona 175. The Speed Visions sponsored Chevrolet Camaro starting shotgun on the field, but quickly moved through the pack and took charge. He led 34 of the 70 laps, even the ones between the two slowdowns on lap 15 (#53 engine expiration caused incident) and lap 64 (multi-car racing incident). He sits atop the standings while Kyle Riley, Ryan Nawrocki, Eric Kepf (Pole Winner) and Arnold Columbia rounded out the top five. Next week we’re onto the Monster Mile, Dover International Speedway. Can Palmieri get it done two weeks in a row?
