John Zych Jr. will take the point lead into the Northeastern Midget Association’s next event, a 25-lap feature at Lee USA Speedway on Friday night, July 13.
“The late caution definitely helped us,” said Zych after a fourth at Stafford Motor Speedway, including a victory in the season opener at Waterford back in early April. “We do appreciate where we are right now.”
The caution in question showed immediately after eventual winner Mike Horn passed the fuel starved Anthony Marvugleo with nine laps left. Contact immediately after the pass resulted in Marvugleo, Randy Cabral and Russ Stoehr, crashing. Cabral and Stoehr were second and third in points coming into the race.
Horn, incidentally, had “about three laps worth of fuel left.”
Horn joined his father Jeff on the Stafford NEMA win list and hopes to do the same at Lee. “When I raced go Karts at the Pomfret (CT) track I must have learned something that helps me on the big tracks,” Horn responded when asked about his prowess (his other win came at Thompson). He was also filled with praise for the Bertrand crew.
