Rob Kristyak is upholding the Kristyak name by being a winner himself

Rob Kristyak is upholding the Kristyak name by being a winner himself.

Twenty-year-old Rob Kristyak is upholding the Kristyak name by being a winner himself. The Bristolville, Ohio driver won his second 20-lap Quaker Steak & Lube West-Penn Limited Modified Feature of the year. Kristyak started fifth, but had the lead on lap three as he and Rick Ryder moved by Ron Eperthener, Jr. for the first two spots. John Buchanan, who started eighth, would give Kristyak a run for his money. Buchanan took third from Eperthener on lap five then on lap 11 grabbed runner-up from Ryder. Buchanan drove to the outside of Kristyak and took the lead as the two raced out of turn four on lap 13. Just after the lap was completed the yellow flag was waved. Then after the restart, Buchanan lost the lead and was denied a first-career win as Kristyak went on for his second career win in his Klaben Crown Ford #00. Buchanan was second with Don McKnight third. On the final lap, Scott Kay tangled with Rick Hall as Kay flipped and landed on his roof. He was taken to United Community Hospital in Grove City where he was later released. Hall was fourth with Shon Derr fifth after coming from the rear. Winning heats were Jeremiah Shingledecker, Kristyak, and Eperthener.

Hartford, OH Jun 11, 2011 Sharon Speedway was able to beat Mother Nature for the second straight night on Saturday as all of the racing action was completed despite another two and a half hour rain delay.

After finishing runner-up on opening night back on April 9, Rob Kristyak hadn’t finished in the top five since; however, that changed on Saturday night when the Bristolville, Ohio celebrated with an early birthday presented as he scored the 20-lap Governor Insurance Big-Block Modified feature win. Kristyak turns 33 on Sunday.

Kristyak and Tom Mattocks led the Modified feature to the green flag with Kristyak taking the early lead. Kristyak led Mattocks, John Buchanan, Skip Moore, and Jim Weller, Jr. through the first half of the event, as the first caution appeared at lap 10 for Rex King, Jr. One more lap was scored before Dean Pearson caught the outside wall in turn three.

Back to green, one more round was scored with 12th starting Rex King advancing to fourth before the final caution appeared for Moore, who hit the outside wall in turn three. King advanced to second on the double file restart, and quickly closed on Kristyak. King made several strong bids to the inside, but Kristyak was able to hold on to the top spot.

Coming to the white flag, King got out of shape in turn four, leaving Kristyak to race on to his 10th career victory by a margin of 2.094 seconds in his Gallo’s Auto Sales/Mark Thomas Ford/Gold Connection/Gwinn Brothers Construction/Wedge Motorsports/Dave’s Towing/Bristol Disposing-sponsored #00.
