MORNEAU JR., JEZYLO CAPTURE FLAT ROCK CROWNS

Flat Rock, MI—August 26, 2017: 16 year-old Ray Morneau Jr. and Adam Jezylo notched the 2017 ARCA DTS Drive Train Specialists Street Stock titles on Harris Mechanical Season Championship Night Saturday at Flat Rock Speedway. Dan Ford Jr. won the A Main contest, while Adam’s father, Ian, took the B Main for the Street Stock class.

The 35 lap A Main championship feature saw Dan Ford Jr. lead every lap, but he had plenty of company with Guy Fire right on his back bumper. Scott Selmi was on the move throughout the contest, using the high groove as he moved into the top 5 by lap 20. Scott stayed on the throttle and got door to door with Fire, but he slid back just a bit as the laps wound down. Ford Jr. took the checkered flag with Fire second, Greg Studt third, Selmi fourth and Morneau Jr. fifth, followed by David Liaeff, Kyle Worley, Rob Moore Jr., Race Loving and Jeff Metdepenningen. Morneau stayed in contention and his finish netted him the track title for the Windsor, Ontario driver, the first for the young talent. His margin was 10 points over Studt.

A marathon 25 lap Street Stock B Main saw Ian Jezylo lead each lap as he avoided 6 yellow flags and a red flag when Jerry Farmer slammed the turn 3 wall on lap 12. Jerry was ok but done for the night. Several drivers chased Ian and took turns to battle for the lead. On lap 15, Adam Jezylo and Wilburn Parks, 1-2 in the B points, both dropped out with flat tires. The event finally was completed as Ian took the win over Alan Kennedy, Rich Abel, James Potter, John Smolinski, Chris Diovardi, Leroy Farmer, Kenny Farmer, Trevor Farmer and Parks. Adam edged out Parks by 10 points to win his first-ever title. Morneau Jr. set the Fastime Racing Engines and Parts quick time for the 30 car field at 13:586. Potter led the B cars at 14:031. Heat wins went to Moore Jr., Steve Searles, Clyde McKee, Kennedy and Trevor Farmer.

14 year-old Jaden Cretacci led the 6 car freight train the entire distance to win the 25 lap Great Lakes Mini Cup feature race. Jarrod Pritchett, Elliot Pritchett, Jay Woosley, Robert Ruttan, Tyler Minix, Nichole Stanley, Alyson Cretacci, Brad Currier, Bobby Stanley and Mike Todd were next in line at the finish. Jaden and Elliot Pritchett took the heat wins.
