Albany-Saratoga quick results April 25

Modified feature
Ronnie Johnson took the lead away from Mike Perrotte with three laps to go in the 35-lap feature, racing to his first win of the year for JRP Motorsports.
Tony Kawallchuk led for the first 15 laps before Perrotte took over for the next 17 circles.
Johnson replaced a motor after last week's power plant failed, courtesy of sponsor Tim Martin and the investment paid off.

Sportsman feature
Josh Hohenforst took advantage of starting on the pole at Albany-Saratoga going wire to wire for his first win since June 8, 2007 in a 25-lap sportsman race.
He almost took the checkers last week, leading 30 laps before suffering front end damage.

Budget Sportsman feature
Frank Hoard III was the first open-wheel back-to-back winner Friday night and it could prove coistly.
He started sixth and quickly moved up to the lead on a slick racing surface.
If, or more likely when, Hoard wins his third budget event this year, he'll be forced to move up to the sportsman division immediately.
"We don't have the motor, but we have the car for it," a smiling Hoard said. "I'm not going to sandbag it, I'm going for the wins."

Pro street stock feature
Walt Brownell returned to Albany-Saratoga after five years racing at Albany-Saratoga's sister track, Devil's Bowl in Fair Haven, Vt. and was all smiles after his first career win at "The Great Race Place."
He was able to nip race leader Cale Kneer coming out of turn one on lap 20.

Limited feature
Ballston Spa's Dan Older held off both Jimmy Monroe III and last week's feature winner Dan Petronis to capture the 20-lap limited feature.
He battled Monroe all along the inside line, close to the barrier for his first win of the year. Monroe, last year's track champion, would fall victim to a right front tire, taking him out of the race.

Mini-stock feature
West Charlton's Raymond Galusha repeated as a mini-stock feature winner, claiming his second straight trophy.
Mechanicville's Mike Cranston led the mini stocks across the finish line in the four-cylinder racer.
Earlier I posted Michelle Catone as the winner, but Cranston was the hand-scored winner. A tip to keep your transponder charged and working

Several leaders spent the remainder of the night near the pit tower, undergoing post-race inspections of the limited and budget sportsman racers, but all were compliant.
