Tim Fuller Remains Perfect At Mohawk In 2017

By: Tim Baltz:

The 358 Modified Division  saw last weeks winner Tim Fuller take the lead at the drop of the green flag with Jordan McCreadie, Billy Dunn, Chris Raabe and Brian McDonald comleting the top 5.  Fuller claimed the season opener 1 week ago and was clearly the dominant force as he pulled away while Dunn, McCreadie, Raabe and McDonald did all they could to run down the leader.  On lap 12 a scary moment occurred on the front stretch as George Foley broke the front end of his race car.  With no way to steer the car he ended up in the path of Ryan Arbuthnot who made heavy contact while running in the 6th spot, the accident also collected 8th place running Danny Johnson.  All 3 drivers were ok but their cars were heavily damaged.  When the racing resumed on lap 13 Billy Dunn made a serious bid for the top spot but Fuller was able to take the lead with Chris Raabe charging to 3rd over Jordan McCreadie while Carey Terrance rounded out the top 5.  With the race going caution free over the final laps Tim Fuller was able to stretch his lead out to nearly a straight way and would march on to his 2nd straight 358 Modified victory with 5 time track champion Billy Dunn claiming his 2nd straight runner up finish.  Chris Raabe improved his opening night disappointment as he finished up 3rd with Jordan McCreadie and Carey Terrance competing the top 5.
