Roseville, CA – (May 22, 2010) – It was a crash-fest at All American Speedway in Roseville Saturday night.  The Modified and Bomber division races were full of wrecks and cautions during USG night at the track.


Modified driver No. 50, Gary Glenn had nowhere to go when two cars in front of him wrecked and he climbed over another car and ended up upside down skidding on his roof.  Luckily, Glenn got out of the car and was OK.


On the first lap Glenn, made contact with the No. 90 of Trevor Cristiani through turns three and four, and then No. 07 Justin Wolff slammed into Cristiani.  On lap two, in turn two, Glenn got in to Cristiani again.  Cristiani exited the track with major damage and Glenn was sent to the rear of the field.  On lap nine, No. 43 Nick Lyons hit the wall hard on the backstretch and in the melee that followed is when Glenn got upside down.  Glenn seemed impatient from the very beginning of the race.


No. 15 Jason Philpot steered clear of the carnage and got his third win of the season.  Philpot started on the pole and stayed in front for 25 laps to take the checkered flag in the caution filled race.


“We worked on the car all day and we had so much bite,” Philpot said.  That is what helped us.  It was not all that great through the corners, but we were able to stay out front.  That’s what we needed to do.”


No. 24 Scott Winters placed second, No. 27 Rich Lindgren was third, No. 77 Michael Ostrowksi was fourth and No. 2 Ryan Peter was fifth.


In Bomber racing, No. 92 Mark Anderson started from the pole followed by No. 50 Richard Perez. Perez led lap one followed by Anderson.  It was back and forth between the two for a few laps.


Thompson and Perez got together on the backstretch on lap six, spinning Perez and the No. 23 of Eric Bocksberger.  Bocksberger suffered a broken ball joint on the right front tire and exited the track.  Thompson led the field to the green.


A red flag came out on lap 11 when No. 12 Denise Lambert and No. 52 Matt Camp got together coming out of turn two and their cars were hooked together.  The safety crew worked diligently to separate the cars.


Thompson and Rickard raced some exciting side-by-side laps before Rickard took the lead on lap 18 and went on to take the checkered flag.


“I finally got a win,” Rickard said.  “It feels good.  Bomber racing is all about how your car handles.”


In Street Stocks No. 50 Chris Lambert took the checkered flag followed by No. 08 Mickey Owens, No. 86 Dave Silva, No. 2 Mel Wilson and No. 80 Bryan Tomerasson.


Silva started on the pole with No. 14 Wayne Crossland on the outside of row one.  On lap 28 Lambert took second from Crossland and on lap 30 Lambert took the lead from Silva.  It was an exciting and competitive Street Stock race.


“It was stressful,” Lambert said after the race.  “That was probably the hardest I ever had to work for a win.”


“When they lined up the 07 of Travis Henry in front of me on the restart, I was thinking well there it is, I’m not going to have a shot, but Henry pulled high and I instantly went from woe is me to I got a shot.  It feels really good to win,” Lambert said.


No. 17 Jonathan Mawhinney and No. 35 Matt Scott each won a Late Model Twin 44 race.  It was Mawhinney’s first career win and Scott’s second win of the season.


No. 61 Shannon Mansch qualified number one and with an invert of five, Scott was on the pole followed by No. 44 Ron Chunn, Mawhinney, No. 20 Bobby Grewohl and Mansch.


Scott took the lead at the green flag.  On lap three Mansch was up to third, with Mawhinney running in second.  Scott, Mawhinney, Mansch, Chunn and Grewohl were nose to tail until lap 32 when Mawhinney and Scott made contact getting Mawhinney sideways and Scott out of shape.  Mawhinney took the lead, then on lap 34 Mansch got in to Scott sending him spinning.


A single-file restart with 10 to go and Mawhinney races to the checkered flag.  “It was great,” Mawhinney said.  “We had a really fast car.”


Mawhinney spun the wheel for the invert for the second Twin 44 and it came up eight.  That put No. 67 David Hulsey on the pole and No. 44 Ron Chunn on the outside of row one.


In the second Twin 44 Chunn took the lead at the green flag with Hulsey falling to second.  On lap four Scott took over second, and on lap 15 Scott took the lead from Chunn.


On lap 25, No. 20 Bobby Grewohl stole second from Chunn.  Meanwhile back in sixth and seventh; Mawhinney and Mansch were stuck behind traffic.  Scott held the lead throughout the race and took the checkered flag, followed by Grewohl, Chunn, No. 31 Justin Henry, Mawhinney, and Mansch.


After the second Twin 44 Mawhinney said, “The first race was great, but the second race I got held up for 30 laps.  It was frustrating because I couldn’t do anything about it.”


“I still had the fastest car.  I could have won the second race too, but there were no cautions.  It is hard when you know you have a fast car and you just are stuck behind someone for 30 laps, but I am happy.  I raced clean and it showed I can pass without hitting people.”


Scott, winner of the second Twin 44 said, “The first race the master cylinder was completely empty, so we took some of the brake fluid out of the rear and put it in to the front so that helped for the second race.” 


“I have the most amazing guys in the pits,” Scott added.  “We just needed to get a few cobwebs out.  We got our first win early this year, and then I think we needed that first Twin 44 tonight to see what we really had.  It all was put back together for the second race.  It was just how I wanted it.”


Next Saturday, May 29, All American Speedway will feature a 200-lap Enduro race.  On Saturday, June 5, it will be the No. 7 NASCAR Whelen All American Series championship Late Model Toyota TRD 100, plus Street Stock, Modified, Bomber, NCMA and SRS racing.  For more information go to: www.allamericanspeedway.com
