Mark Tyson Earns Top Five in Evergreen Raceway Opener

(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!"
