Wild Thing Karts Recap From Stafford Motor Speedway – Aug. 6, 2018

(Press Release from Wild Thing Karts)

STAFFORD — Usually when a kart driver devises a strategy for the start of a race, the plan becomes obsolete by lap 2.

Because his Senior Outlaw kart delivered, however, Dan Gayman was able to follow his game plan all the way to the winner’s circle.

“The kart was right where I wanted it to be,” said Gayman, who took the lead midway through the race and held off his brother Josh Gayman and Greg Estell to capture a win in the Senior Outlaw division in Monday’s Wild Thing Kart program at Stafford Motor Speedway.

“When it came time to pass, the kart came in and I could do what I wanted to do. “It was exactly the way I planned “

Josh Gayman moved into second, but couldn’t create enough speed to close in on his brother.

“I think what happened is that I made contact with Brody O’Sullivan’s kart early in the race and I was trying to keep my kart in one piece,” Josh Gayman said. “I just wasn’t aggressive as I wanted to be. And I lost my momentum there and that gave my brother an opportunity to start marching away.”

Josh Gayman still leads the point standing, but by only two points over Dan Gayman with four races remaining in 2018.

“I just have to win each race,” Dan Gayman said, “or keep finishing ahead of my brother.”

That would be another game plan that would be difficult to execute, but would give him a track championship if he could.

The Junior Outlaws ran double features. In the opener, Cameron Pearl pulled away from Jason Chapman on a late restart to grab his third win in the last four races.

In the second race, it was Chapman’s turn to pull away from Pearl over the final five laps.

“We didn’t change one thing between races,” Chapman said. “We just put gas in it.”

In Senior Champ action, Scott Foster Jr. ran down his brother Sean on his way to his first win of the year.

Zack Varga was a winner in the Pro 2 Modifieds.

Jesse Martello took the lead from Dylan Houghton to win his sixth Tiger A race of the season. Houghton was second and Parker Berndt made a pass on the last lap to move into third.

Adam Bigalow roared to a big lead early in the race and held on for a Tiger B victory. Tommy Foster held off a late challenge to finish second and Parker Davis was third.

Raleigh Maskell was a runaway winner in the first Cubs feature, with Jacob LeMay finishing second and Dylan Lacus third. Summer Berndt executed an outside pass on the last lap to win the second Cubs feature over Brady Bigalow and Hunter Duquette was third.

Wild Thing Karts Racing will continue Aug. 20th with twin Senior Outlaw features. For more information please visit their website www.wildthingkarts.com.
