CLISE CLAIMS BEDFORD FAIR SWEEPSTAKES

 Chuck Clise picked the right moment to shine as he roared to the win at the big Bedford Fair sweepstakes race Friday night.    It was Clise’s third career Bedford win but the first of the 2014 season and came before the huge fair week crowd.  Rick Singleton spotted the whole field a starting spot as he came from dead last to score the thrilling win in Limited action, his fourth of the season.  Lou Wannyn rallied late to take the Semi Late victory before Charlie Walter ended the evening with his fifth Pure Stock triumph of the season then stayed late to keep it.
      The Late Model 25 lap event started roughly as it took three attempts to get going.  Clise snagged the lead from his pole position and never looked back when the field finally got going ahead of  Mike Altobelli.   Altobelli’s car quit on lap three and he drifted to the pits, one lap before Jeff Rine, charging forward from  sixth, spun in turn four.   Read more »
