Tim Fuller Pockets $3,000 with NDRL Northeast Win at Port Royal Speedway
Port Royal, PA (June 21, 2014) Tim Fuller of Watertown, NY., scored a rich payday at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, besting a stellar 35-car NDRL Late Model field with a powerful move by Mason Zeigler for the lead and victory, worth $3,000. 

Fuller started fifth in the 30-lap NDRL Northeast late model field as Mason Zeigler started on the pole. Zeigler, a 21-year old gasser from Chalk Hill who set a new one-lap track record for late models earlier in the night, took control when the race got underway over fourth starter Jared Miley of South Park.
The only caution flag of the race unfurled with five laps in the book and the restart saw NDRL Northeast point leader Keith Barbara of South Park race into second but fail to challenge Zeigler for the lead. Fuller began coming to life near the halfway point of the race, using the high groove to complete his advances, taking over third from Miley on the 14th tour. He got by Barbara with 14 laps to go and set his sights on leader Zeigler who was blasting around the bottom of the track. 

Zeigler then moved up to the top groove as Fuller pulled up on this back bumper but by that time Fuller was into his rhythm and there was only one more spot for him to conquer.Fuller pulled the trigger on Zeigler with a low dive in the third corner before pulling a slide job to complete the pass after catching the cushion in the fourth turn with 11 laps left.

Covert Claims NDRL Northeast Victory at Bedford Speedway
Bedford, PA (June 20, 2014) Jason Covert waited over half the race but rallied late to score the NDRL race at Bedford Friday night.  For Covert, who usually rises to the occasion in Bedford’s bigger races, it was his first 2014 win at the track. Pole sitter Keith Barbara got the jump on the field in the NDRL event and easily led the opening laps. Covert was up to second when the first caution flew on lap 3 for Jeff Rine.  The yellow flew again on the restart as Jared Miley was involved in a back stretch fracas and Rine made yet another pit visit.

On that restart, Barbara seemingly had the field covered, running away from Covert and Dylan Yoder to a wide margin lead.  But as the laps ticked off Covert began to close.  After a Rance Garlock yellow on lap 18, Covert was all over Barbara for the lead.  On lap 22, Covert made a serious challenge but overshot the runway in turn one and lost a lot of ground. 

But Covert stayed with the program and three laps late was back all over Barbara.  As the pair completed lap 26, Covert made a bold move and grabbed the lead.  From that point on, Covert got faster and faster and ran off from the field. Barbara meanwhile fell back into the clutches of Tim Fuller, who finally took over second on lap 31. READ MORE HERE

Jared Miley Dominates NDRL Northeast Event at Little Valley!
Little Valley, NY (May 25, 2014) Jared Miley from South Park, PA, made a very impressive debut at Little Valley Speedway, overwhelming a class field of Super Late Models in the 30 lap NDRL Northeast Late Model Series Feature in front of a large crowd on a beautiful spring night at the Cattaraugus County Fairgrounds. Miley, a regular at Lernerville Speedway and follower of the NDRL NE Tour, started on the outside pole courtesy of the redraw, and having quickly learned the nuances of the long straightaways and tight turns on the half mile during hot laps and the heat, blew into the lead past Dick Barton and never looked back.

Mike Knight, who always runs well at Little Valley, gave chase early after starting fourth and seemed to have something for Miley, but two trips over the cushion in turn two thwarted his effort. The race then became a battle for second, which saw Knight, Barton, Max Blair and later, fast timer Keith Barbara go at it for a number of laps, with Blair finally wresting the position from the others on lap 13. While this was going on, Miley was checking out, opening a half lap lead on the field, which boasted fifteen drivers who had feature wins to their credit over the years.


At the line, it was Miley by a huge margin, with Blair second, followed by Barbara, Greg Oakes, who started ninth, and Barton to complete the top five. Only one minor caution occurred, that for a spin on lap five. READ MORE HERE
