Old Timer can still fly

Duane Zeinstra dominated a very competitive 25 lap feature race for the Old Timers on Saturday at Saratoga Speedway

Duane Zeinstra dominated a very competitive 25 lap feature race for the Old Timers on Saturday at Saratoga Speedway.

Saturday marked the last appearance of the Old Timer and the Dwarf cars on the 2011 season.

Zeinstra won 3-out-of-5 races on Saturday, but he did not set fast time in qualifying on Saturday. James Campbell set fast time in qualifying with a time of 16.555.

Ron Simpson won the B dash, with the A dash win going to Zeinstra. Zeinstra carried his winning ways into the heat, coming from the very back to take the win.

Larry Joyce managed to hold off Zeinstra and Campbell to take the reverse heat win. Zeinstra found himself in 1st place on lap 5 of the 25-lap main event and never looked back from there, holding off Campbell who finished second to take the win. Joe Dardengo rounded out the top 3.

Mike Meeres finished his Saratoga season strong, also winning 3-out-of-5 races on the night. Meeres also set fast time on the night, setting a time of 15.668.

Don Banansky won the B dash, with the A dash win going to Meeres.

Dave Emmerson dominated to win the heat. Meeres had a poor finish in the first heat, which gave him great positioning to start the reverse heat and he used that to his advantage, leading all 10 laps of the heat.

Brad Kotscherofski won his first ever Bomber main event on Saturday. Gilles Cyr set fast time in qualifying, setting a time of 17.727. Travis Stevenson won the B dash, and Charlie Ackerman won the A. Ackerman found himself in the lead on lap 3 of the 12 lap heat and never looked back from there.

Gilles Cyr led the 30 lap feature from lap 9 until lap 25. On lap 25, Cyr had to withdraw from the race after blowing out his back end. Brad Kotscherofski inherited the lead and never looked back, winning his first ever main event.
