Coss and Scherer take Tony Fisher Twin 25’s
By: Ted Grow
(St. John’s, PA) The fifth annual Tony Fisher Memorial was held on Friday night. Roger Coss and Darren Scherer scored their first wins of the season. Brian DeFebo,who has had nothing but bad luck at Evergreen as of late, ran out front early in the first 25 lap event. Roger Coss battled his way to the front as seventeen lap green flag would shuffle all the top players to the front. Coss and Lou Strohl put on a dazzling display of racing running side by side with Coss the victor. Coss would pull an invert of twelve for the second 25 lap run. With an awesome display of talent, the tour type modified drivers gave the fans a show. Darren Scherer would grap the lead early, being heavily pressured again from behind by Lou Stroul, who had a fantastic night with two top 5 finishes. Scherer nearly ended his night when he was dead sideways off of turn four trying to hold everyone off including Earl Paules, Coss and Blake Barney. Scherer held on for his first ever tour modified win at Evergreen.
The Factory stock main event was an interesting one for sure. Blaine Barry started on the pole alongside Joey Helberg. Helberg and Barry raced side by side for numerous laps, until eventual race winner Brandon Cook made contact with Barry while leading sending both cars to the rear. Helberg and Scott Sipe would now battle for a number of laps. Helberg, using the outside, was able to lead. Unfortunately late in the run, the right front went flat and Helberg was unable to continue. Cook would then go on to win his third feature of the year.
Kenzie Adams gets better and better every week and it showed. Kenzie would work around Tony Hilliard early in the event. She put some distance over second place until a lap 20 caution would bring the field back together. Jimmy Ayre, the previous weeks winner, charged through the field to come home second and stay within reach of current point leader Kenzie Adams. Nick Schaffer, Micah Adams and Jay Skupski rounded out the top five.
