A-S Mini Stock and Pro Stock features

Phil DeFiglio (Guilderlandy finally made it interesting in the mini stock division Friday night at Albany-Saratoga Speedway.
After winning 13 features in a row, he was relegated to the back of the field as the field was handicapped and was tangled up with a group on the first lap.
It didn't effect the A-Z Landscaping No. 26 as DeFiglio moved up to the top spot on lap five on the back stretch.
He led the field around the dirt oval once again followed by 4-cylinder winner, Clifton Park's Brette Osgood.
The Pro Street Stock division didn't get a chance to run qualifiers and it showed.
The yellow caution flag flew on eight different occassions, limiting the 23 car field to its eight finishers.
When the dust settled, Albany-Saratoga's first lady. Lori Cary (Loudonberry, Vt.), won the feature and took over the points lead on lap 24.
Former points leader Kim Duell (Porter Corners) was spun out when the race leaders, Bill Smith IV (Ballston Spa) and Chuck Towslee (Manchester, Vt.) touched coming out of turn four. He would finish in seventh place.
The 45-minute intermission turned into a two hour break as a fast-moving rainstorm came through the area, halting racing action.
As the rain moved out, Richards was able to put his experimental dirt track squeegie unit, pulled by a tractor to use.
As of press time, the remaining three features and the 107.1 lap enduro were scheduled to go off Friday night.
