    Matt Cosner rallied late to add his name to the long list of fair week winners at the Great Bedford Fair Friday night.   The win, before a cram packed crowd was Cosner’s second of the year, both coming in prestigious races, the Milt Miller classic and now the fair event.   Robby Black held off Kyle Lee’s advances to score the Limited event, while Travis Calhoun held off two challengers for the Semi Late win.  Jim Sayler, Beau Aikey and Ryan Peer won in other action.
    With the fair week format, starting lineups were determined by 2016 point standings at the track.  Eric Zembower and Andy Haus brought the Late Model field to the green and it was Haus ahead on lap one.    Dylan Yoder finally got by Zembower for second on lap 4, but Haus was way ahead by then.  Matt Cosner took third on lap six and closed on Yoder in about a lap.   Read more »

Matt Cosner rose to the occasion and crushed a tough Late Model field to claim the Milt Miller Cup at Bedford Friday night. The 35 lap event, held in the memory of former racer Milt Miller, was worth $3000 to Cosner and was his first 2016 win at the track.  Greg Hainsey held off a mob in a wild three wide dash to the finish to gain the Semi Late event, before Rick Hulson scored his first ever EMod win.  Ryan Peer closed the exciting evening with a 4Cylkinder win
    When fast timer and heat winner Gregg Satterlee drew the pole for the event,  most people figured the race was already decided.  And Satterlee did not disappoint as he shot off at the drop of the green.  But the first lap was never completed as a ten car pileup erupted in turn three and the red flew.     After cleanup operations, the field realigned for a start just as a shower hit the track and everyone went to the pits.

With a spectacular late race rally, Max Blair scored the win in the Johnny Grum Classic 40 at Bedford Friday night..  With the win he became the 136th different winner at the track, joining his father on that prestigious list.  In other action, Jonathan Taylor again dominated the E Mod event, Justin Michael won the Semi Late race and Wayne Brenize prevailed in the 4 Cylinder closer.
      When slated front row starter Jared Miley elected to start tail on the field, Gene Knaub eagerly joined Jeff Rine up front for the start.  Rine brought the field to the green but it was Knaub leading at the completion of lap one.  Max Blair secured second on lap two and settled in at that spot chasing Knaub.
   Lap after lap the front pair ran in that order as Jason Covert and Gregg Satterlee charged from the pack.  But the real charger in the field was Matt Cosner.   By the time of the only yellow, for a stalled car in turn three on lap 22, Cosner was up to fifth,  behind Knaub, Blair, Covert and Satterlee.
