ROB KRISTYAK (Big Block) and Mike Kinney (E-Mods) Get wins at Sharon speedway
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.
