16 YEAR OLD JOE TOTH GRABS FIRST CAREER 602 SPORTSMAN WIN!admin
Delmar, DE…Sixteen-year-old, Joe Toth 9, of Newtown, PA, wins the GM 602 Sportsman Modified 20 lap feature to pick up the $1000 check along with lap monies, $100 to take the green for all. Toth thanked his mom, dad, grand-dad and the rest of the family, then thanks his sponsor Sweetwater.
Toth started on the pole at the green, but yellow was out at the start when some cars tangled, then again, a couple times before the feature really got started. No laps were in for the first yellow, lineup was Toth, Matt Smith 97, Tom Moore, Jr. 59, Brad Roberts 123, and Stephen Kemery 69K. By lap 3, Dwayne Crockett 1RX grabs fourth, he also had the fastest lap in the feature with a 20.600 sec and 87.379 mph lap. David Graham 267 lost his rear bumper in the may lays of yellows and was black flagged for safety reasons. Lap 5 restarted with Crockett jumping into second before more cars brought out the yellow in turn 4.
At the halfway point, Toth lead Crockett, Erik Korman 16S, Jeremy Harrington 30J, Stephen Kemery 69K and Adam White 15. On the halfway restart, Korman doesn’t come up to speed dropping many positions ending up 6th for the night. On lap 17, White was turned around in 1 & 2, collecting Roberts, and Tommy Wilkins 5 ending the night for all three. A two-lap shoot-out in the end resulted in Toth, Crockett, Harrington, Kemery and Ryan Riddle 31 rounding out the top 5.
