Fuller Wins Port Royal NDRL Northeast Late Model Cash, Snook Gets Econos
Port Royal – Tim Fuller of Watertown, Ny., scored a rich payday at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, besting a stellar 35-car NDRL Late Model field with a powerful move by Mason Zeigler for the lead and victory, worth $3,000.
In the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature, Dylan Cisney poured some local flavor into victory lane by holding off Doug Esh for the win as a hometown favorite. And in the 355 econo late model division Todd Snook took his first checkers of the season.
PORT ROYAL: Dylan Cisney needed something, anything, to turn his season around at Port Royal Speedway.
The hometown product — he is from Port Royal — hasn't been good on the dry-slick surface this season. He's struggled with handling, finding speed and tore up a car a few weeks ago during a feature event.
So when Cisney pulled the No. 1 pill out of the bag for his main event starting position, he knew he needed a good run.
How about a win.
Cisney wired the 18-car field to capture the 25-lap Sprint Car feature, earning his second career win at the Juniata County oval since graduating from the Super Sportsman division. He earned $3,000 for his efforts.
"We really needed this," Cisney said after climbing on the back of his car and waving the checkered flag to the crowd in Victory Lane.
"We've had a horrible start to the season. Things just haven't been going our way here. We had a vibration in the heat and were thrashing around, changing the driveline, the U-joint..I just have to thank my guys.
