Wild Thing Karts Recap From Stafford Motor Speedway – June 25, 2018

(Press Release from Wild Thing Karts)

STAFFORD — After having to move racing back a day last week. Wild Thing Karts were back on their usual Monday schedule. Winners on Monday night included Jason Chapman in the Junior Outlaws.

Tim Sullivan in the Senior Champs, Ernie Veader in the Pro 2 Modifieds, Ryan Magliano in the Tiger A, Jaden Lage in the Tiger B, and Jacob LeMay and Dylan Lacus in the Cubs.

Perhaps the most emotional win, however, was put together by Wyatt Chambers, who had gone five years without a karting victory until Monday.

With 18 laps of brilliance Wyatt Chambers won the Sr. Outlaw feature. He took the lead on lap 3 with an inside move against Brody O’Sullivan and then held off a desperation bid from Dan Gayman over the final laps to post his first-ever Senior Outlaw win.

“This means a lot to me,” Chamber s said. “It’s been a hard five years — we started in the back in junior outlaw and senior outlaw and tonight we turned it around. I have no words to explain how happy I am.”

Chambers was aggressive early, stuffing his Kart underneath O’Sullivan’s to take the lead three laps into the race.

“I felt like I really wanted it tonight,” Chambers said. “There’s really no reason for it — I just wanted to prove to myself that I can race and show people I deserve to be in the front.”

The race turned into a pressure cooker, however, when Daniel Gayman made a late rush and started prowling on his back bumper.

“The bumpers were touching,” Chambers said. “I would see his nose come around the side and I would barely get through the corners. I was just hoping nothing bad would happen.”

Then heading into the last lap, Chambers got billy-clubbed from behind.

“I got bumped in the back and had to correct it,” Chambers said. “It was pretty scary because I almost lost it right there and lost some speed. I was just hoping for the best and I made it. Now with one win under my belt, I’m hoping for a couple more.”

Dan Gayman was second and Josh Gayman was third.

Tim Sullivan of South Windsor remained undefeated in the Senior Champ division as he led almost every lap. His kart maintained a blistering pace throughout the race.

“I had the kart set up for the long run because I didn’t think there would be too many cautions and it made a big difference,” Sullivan said.

Sean Foster was second and Ryan Kendall was third.

Ernie Veader was in top form in the Pro 2 Modifieds, taking the lead from Scott Morrison midway through the race. It was Veader’s second straight win.

Jason Chapman returned to his winning ways in the Junior Outlaws after finishing fourth the week before. He started fifth in the field, but rocketed into the lead on a lap 1 restart. Ryan Birkenshaw was second and Jake Hines was third.

Ryan Magliano held off Jesse Martello over the final laps to take down the Tiger A win.

“It was nerve-racking,” Magliano said. “Every time he tried to pass me heading into the corner, but I just held my line.” Dylan Houghton was third.

Jaden Lage won his last two Tiger B features by taking the lead on the last lap, but Monday he got the job done early, moving in front on lap 2. Antonio Caputo was second and Tommy Foster finished third. The win will move Lage into the Tiger A’s starting at the next race.

Jacob LeMay won the first Cub race, followed by Brady Bigalow and Raleigh Maskill. The second Cub race was won by Dylan Lacas with Summer Berndt second and Parker Davis third.
