Wild Thing Karts Recap From Stafford Motor Speedway – July 16, 2018

(Press Release from Wild Thing Karts)

STAFFORD — Wild Thing Karts returned to regular competition Monday at Stafford Motor Speedway.

What contributes to a win? Is it the driver, the team or just luck? Well for Daniel Gayman it’s all about the kart. That’s what he claimed after his dominant victory in the Senior Outlaw division

“The kart was great tonight, it handled the way I wanted it to and it never dropped off,” said Gayman, explaining how he was able to thunder his way underneath Wyatt Chambers on the third lap en route to an emphatic win, his first of the season. “I was starting in the front two rows, so there wasn’t that much traffic to work through and I was able to lead it all the way to the checkers.”

There were a few nervous moments, however. Greg Estell moved into second place with five laps to go, but couldn’t run down Gayman.

“Once I got into third, I just didn’t have enough laps to pick off the leaders,” Estell said. “I think I had the fastest kart here tonight. I just ran out of laps.”

Gayman, however, was happy with his kart.

“I was thinking of maybe saving the kart for late in the race, just in case there was a caution,” Gayman said. “But I was more focused on hitting my marks and being consistent, and seeing that checkered flag at the end.”

Brody O’Sullivan finished third.

Cameron Pearl fought off Ryan Birkenshaw with three laps to go to post his second win of the year in the Junior Outlaw division.

“I was nervous on the restart,” Pearl said. “But the kart was pretty fast tonight. We made a few changes and they worked.”

Jason Chapman passed several karts during the second half of the race to finish third.

It took Tim Sullivan just a lap and a half to go from fourth to first to claim his sixth win of the year in the Senior Champ division. Nick Hadden finished a close second and Scott Foster was third.

Jesse Martello was in third place coming out of turn 4 on lap 5. By the time he firecrackered his was into turn 1, he had the lead. Martello’s dazzling move was the difference as he won the Tiger A race. Dylan Houghton finished second and Kevin Davis was third.

Dylan Holbrook bolted into the lead on the opening lap in the Tiger feature, but lost the lead to Adam Bigalow when he was pinched behind a slower kart A few laps later, however, Holbrook used a slower kart as a pick to regain the lead on the way to his first win of the season. Antonio Caputo was third.

Brady Bigalow was in the right place at the right time to win the Cubs feature. Summer Bernt and Jacob LeMay were going for the lead on the final lap when they knocked into each other, allowing Bigalow, who was running third, to blast by on the outside en route to the winner’s circle. Parker Davis was second and Hunter Duquette was third.

The Karts will be idle until July 27, when the Senior Champs compete in a special non-point money race during the Stafford Speedway’s Friday night program. Regular racing resumes July 30 when the Tiger A division competes in Twin 15-lap features. For more information on the Sr. Champ money race or Wild Thing Karts please visit: www.wildthingkarts.com.
