 Wiltrout Holds Off Mitchell for "Napa 100" Win at Motordrome!

SMITHTON, PA (8/5/05) - The 2005 "Napa 100" for the Napa NASCAR Super Late Models at Motordrome Speedway thrilled fans with late-race drama, as former track champions fought for the victory, less than five laps from the finish. Garry Wiltrout sustained the lead after pressure and contact from Richard Mitchell to secure his second win of the year in the crown-jewel event of ‘05. In other NASCAR Dodge Weekly Racing Series action on August 5th, Adam Kostelnik (Smail Pontiac-GMC Modifieds), Robin Rimel (Subway Street Stocks), Jeff Giles (Yellow Book Chargers), and Ed Dinneen (Advance Auto Parts American Flyers) also repeated feature wins.

The most prestigious event for Napa NASCAR Super Late Models, the "Napa 100," started with a rookie and a veteran pacing the field. At the drop of the green flag, freshman Tony Musolino took the lead, but on lap two his front-row starting mate John Komarinski was scored in front. By lap three, third starting Garry Wiltrout showed his strength by taking the lead. Although the 2002 Motordrome Champion would never relinquish the lead, his most trying moments were more than 90 laps ahead. Thirteenth starting Richard Mitchell advanced quickly through the field, taking third position from Mike Adams on lap 13. By lap 15, Mitchell raced by Komarinski and was a distant second to Wiltrout. An equally swift charge was made by fifteenth starting Rick Miller, who advanced to third by lap 16. The trio of former champions weaved lapped traffic and held the top three spots until the only caution flag of the event, waved on lap 59. Miller and other top-ten drivers made pit stops for fresh right-side rubber. Wiltrout and Mitchell elected not to pit, while Miller’s tire swap moved fourteenth-starting Bobby Henry up to third. Once racing resumed, Miller re-claimed third on lap 63, forcing 2004 "Napa 100 winner," Henry, back to fourth. Mitchell was able to stay within four car-lengths of Wiltrout into the final stages of the event, and after lap 90 Mitchell steadily reduced Wiltrout’s lead both in traffic and clear racetrack. With four laps remaining, Mitchell made rear bumper contact with Wiltrout challenging for the win exiting turn two. Wiltrout made an impressive save, and kept his car moving forward, while Mitchell lost several car-lengths. After the contact, Miller challenged Mitchell for second as Wiltrout used the interval gained in the incident to cruise to his second victory of the year.

"That was a ‘just racing’ deal (with Mitchell)," Wiltrout said with a smile in victory lane. "I would have done it to Richard, and I expected him to do it to me. That’s what good short track racing is all about." Wiltrout, of Somerset, PA also won the earlier "Top Dog Challenge" dash in the Lint Flooring, Stone and Company, Meegan Ford, Bentz Motorsports #60. Mitchell recovered to place second, with points-leader Miller finishing third and earning the Valvoline Hard Charger Award. Henry placed fourth with first-time Motordrome starter Will Thomas having a stellar top five run. Sixth through tenth were Jon Messenger, Brandon Manns, Komarinski, Musolino, and Adams. Mitchell and Henry won the heats.

For the second week in a row, Adam Kostelnik proved that his 2004 Smail Pontiac-GMC Modified Championship was no fluke. After starting twelfth, Kostelnik powered into the lead on lap 13, passing two-time winner Mike Bakalon. Kostelnik won his heat and the Valvoline Hard Charger Award en route to his division-leading sixth win. Bakalon maintained second place, finishing ahead of Rich Nicola, who placed third in his second start of the year. Matt Smith was fourth and George P. Nicola was fifth. John Pribanich won the other heat.

Former division champion Robin Rimel started second and led from green to the checkered flag in the Subway Street Stock 20-lap feature. Rimel, sponsored by Napa Auto Parts, was elated to win on his sponsor’s night at the Speedway. It was his second victory of the year and vaulted him up to second in the point standings. Max Schlessinger placed a season’s best second, while standings leader and Valvoline Hard Charger Frank Turek finished third. Dave Tavormina and Shawn Phillips completed the top five. Jonathan Hileman and Turek were the heat race victors.

Jimmy Stokes crossed the finish line first in Yellow Book Charger division feature, but was disqualified in the post-race inspection. Jeff Giles inherited his tenth win of the year, after winning the heat race and Valvoline Hard Charger honors. Rick Broadwater placed second in the adjusted rundown, with Victor Keller, Tracy Keller, and Bryan Shipp officially finishing in the top five.

In the Advance Auto Parts American Flyers, Ed Dinneen seemed unstoppable again. His tenth win helped him to extend his points lead over Richie Miller who placed second. Aaron Minjock continued his recent streak of top five finishes by placing third with Roger Bryan and Matt Gardner behind him. Dinneen also won the heat race and earned hard charger honors..
