LARGEST RoC CAR COUNT OF 2015 AND A FIRST TIME WINNER HIGHLIGHT THE ACTION AT MEMORIAL DAY MADNESS

May 24, 2015

Tioga Center, NY  - Thirty Modifieds packed the pits as the Sunoco Race Of Champions Tour rolled into the Shangri-La Motorsports Complex Sunday afternoon, and when the checkered flag flew, it was Patrick Emerling smiling in Victory Lane, taking his first win in a R.O.C. Tour main event. R.J. Zacharias took home the gold in the Street Stock feature and Matt Kurjewski topped the INEX Legends show.

Emerling hit the track for practice on Saturday night during the first half of the special weekend at the concrete half mile, and it paid off, as the car and driver were at the top of their game right from the moment they rolled off the trailer Sunday. He set fast time during practice, ran second in his qualifying heat, and drew outside pole for the 75 lap feature. From then on everyone else spent their afternoon trying to catch the #07. Andy Jankowiak powered into the runnerup spot as Matt Hirschman, T.J. Potrzebowski, and Bobby Holmes gave chase. A quick yellow on lap 28 bunched the field, and two laps after the restart disaster struck. Tommy Catalano, who had moved into the top ten after starting fifteenth, slid up out of the groove in turn four and made heavy contact with the wall. The ensuing melee collected Austin Kochenash, Daren Scherer, Mike Leaty and Bryan Sherwood, with a number of other drivers having incidental contact as they attempted to avoid the accident. All drivers were treated on site and released, but the incident created an extended red flag period for track cleanup. On the restart, Jankowiak got shuffled to the outside, and slid back in the pack and Hirshman took over the second spot. The next five or six positions were closely contested over the next few laps. Chuck Hossfeld recorded the fastest lap of the race just past the halfway point as he batled his way to the third spot and began to close in on Hirschman. A couple of cautions grouped the leaders in the closing laps, but Emerling pulled away on each restart. Hossfeld kept the pressure on Hirschman, but could never quite get alongside and had to settle for third at the finish. Tony Hanbury delivered a solid performance coming home in the fourth spot, but one of the big stories at the finish was Jimmy Zacharias. Jimmy was injured earlier while preparing his car for the feature and had to be helped into the car. He hung around in the bottom half of the top ten for much of the race, but as the laps wound down he went to the outside and put on a driving clinic, running the ragged edge and moving up the order. He was unable to complete the pass on Hanbury through many tries and had to settle for fifth.
