BREWERTON — Billy Decker dominated Friday’s caution-free 35-lap Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modified feature at Brewerton Speedway. Decker chalked up his first Brewerton win of the season. He is the 10th different driver to win a Modified feature at the track in 2019.
Other winners on NAPA Auto Parts Night were 15-year-old Tyler Murray in the Dot Foods DIRTcar Sportsman feature, Tucker Halliday in the U.S Air Force Mod Lites, Chris Bonoffski in the Fleet Repairs Truck & Trailer Repair Four-Cylinders, and Dale Caswell in the Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux Late Models.
In the Modified feature, Decker took advantage of a front row starting spot and built a big lead by lap 5, leaving teammate Pat Ward, Jimmy Phelps, Roy Bresnahan, and Tom Sears Jr. to race for second through fifth.
Ward gained ground by lap 10 in a two-car breakaway at the front of the field. On lap 15, Decker and Ward were still setting a fast pace as they started to put cars a lap down.
Decker was still on rails on the top side of the speedway with 10 laps remaining. Ward. Phelps, Tim Sears Jr., and Larry Wight raced behind Decker.
Over the final laps, Decker cruised to his first Brewerton win of the season, his 65th overall at the track. Ward, Tim Sears Jr., Phelps, and Chris Hile rounded out the top five.
