Mark Tyson Earns Top Five in Evergreen
(April 27, 2014)-
Despite being heavily pursued by Brian DeFebo in the middle portion of the
35-lap Modified main event Sunday at Evergreen Raceway Park, Austin
Kochenash of Danielsville, PA distanced himself in the latter stages and
cruised to the inaugural feature at the famed 1/3-mile asphalt oval. Travis
Fisher of Freeland, PA is no newcomer to victory lane in the Late Model
division and claimed his first feature under the Evergreen banner by holding
off Kyle Harvell for the checkered. Chip Wanamaker of Walnutport, PA edged
his teammate for top honors in the Street Stock division and Tom Cassagrande
of Drums, PA also bested his teammate to claim his first Pure Stock feature
in years. Ricky Yetter of Easton, PA grabbed the race lead in the Dirt
Modified main on lap two and then drove off to his first ever victory at the
track. Following a side-by-side duel, Todd McCollum of Somerset, NJ bested
Brandon DeBrakleer for the INEX Legends victory and after door and body
slamming with Harry O’Neill off of turn four to the checkered flag, John
Banashefski of Wilkes-Barre went to victory lane in Four Cylinder action.
Travis Fisher started
from the pole position and led the opening circuit of the 30-lap Late Model
feature over Kyle Harvell, Steve Shultz and Mark Tyson.
Although Harvell was
running lap times equivalent to the leader, track position was key and
following three restarts for quick yellow flags, Harvell settled for the
runner up spot behind Fisher, who was also the heat race winner. Shultz was
third, followed by Tyson.
"The car was really good but free",
noted Tyson, after what he called a disappointing finish.
"I just burned up the right rear
(tire) too early, but we'll get them next time!"
