Billy Decker and Jeremy Pitcher served notice that they have no plans of giving up their 2011 track championships in the Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modifieds and SUNY Canton Sportsman. They both grabbed opening night wins Saturday.
Each took a different road to get their victories, however. Decker dominated the Big Block Modifieds while Pitcher used a last-lap, last-corner pass for his win.
Other winners on Ferris Mowers opening night were Larry Wight, NAPA Late Models; Corey Barker, E&V Energy Novice Sportsman; and Eric M Zirbel, Parts Plus Four Cylinder Stocks.
Jim Witko out ran Tim Sears Jr. and the rest of the field to lead the opening lap of the 35-lap Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modified feature.
With five laps in the books, Witko still set the pace as Billy Decker, Tom Sears Jr., Tim Sears Jr. and Mike Mahaney chased the leader. On lap 9 after chasing Witko in his tire tracks on the top of the speedway, Decker dove to the bottom in turn one and had the lead by time they exited turn two.
