Paulie Colagiovanni Victorious In ESS Pabst Shootout At Can-Am Speedway Wednesday

LAFARGEVILLE, NY – After nearly a month hiatus due to weather and scheduling, racing roared back into action at Can-Am Speedway with a special Wednesday night program which featured Empire Super Sprints for the 25 lap Pabst Shootout sponsored by Doldo Brothers, Inc.

Paulie Colagiovanni dominated the Empire Super Sprint feature, wasting no time moving into the lead after a lap one caution after starting in third position. Colagiovanni in the 10c blasted ahead of the field and was into lapped traffic by the halfway point of the 25-lap race. Colagiovanni was so dominant, he lapped the field all the way up to 11th position. The victory was the perfect springboard for Colagiovanni as he continues his conquest in the CNY ESS Speedweek.

In the 50-lap Whitesboro Plow Shop DIRTcar 358 Modifieds, Billy Dunn started the feature in first place and looked to be well on his way to yet another victory at the Nasty Track of the North. But it was not to be. Dunn pulled off the track with mechanical issues, relinquishing the lead to m1 Dave Marcucilli in lap 30. For his part, Marcuccilli took full advantage of the opportunity, dashing out to a commanding lead over the field, putting nearly half a track between himself and second place 31 Lance Willix by the time the checkered flag unfurled. It was a sweet victory for Marcuccilli who landed a cool $3000 for the win.

In the Bob Johnson Auto Group DIRTcar Sportsman feature, it was 64 Tyler Corcoran who took the victory after patiently waiting through most of the race for his opportunity for the lead. Corcoran slipped by 12 David Rogers with just eight laps remaining and was able to fend off second place finisher 33x Matt Janczuk after a caution slowed racing with just two laps remaining. It was Corcoran’s second victory at Can-Am Speedway for the year.

In the Marsha Gibbons TLC Realty ThunderStock feature, it was 22F Tony Frezzo with the victory after fending off 16 Steve Smith and 11z Mike Greenfield who were both tenaciously competing for the lead throughout the race.

The night also featured an ESS Dash for Cash which was claimed by 9 Josh Pieniazik.
