AUSTIN BEERS SWEEPS VICTORY LANE LAURELS AT CHEMUNG SPEEDROME FOR THE 2023 SEASON WITH WIN IN THE 2023 ROD SPALDING CLASSIC

Austin Beers of Northampton, Pa., utilized a three-wide move to grab the lead and run to victory in the Rod Spalding Classic at Chemung (N.Y.) Speedrome this past Saturday in the traditional “Night before the Glen” event.

“We had a good racecar and the lane opened up,” stated Beers from victory lane. “We were three wide one other time and I rolled out of the throttle early. I need to thank my Mom and my Dad for all that they do and all of the guys on the team for their hard work and support. This is a great race to win. It’s something I will remember for many years.”

Beers topped current point leader, Zane Zeiner of Bath, Pa., who finished second. Jack Ely of Wall, N.J., finished third after starting seventh.

TJ Potrzebowski of Elmira, N.Y., finished fourth after leading many laps in the early going of the event. Brian Defebo of Berwick, Pa., drove from eleventh to fifth.

Zeiner, Beers and Gunnar Zeiner of Bath, Pa., (Zane Zeiner’s son) won the qualifying races. Zane Zeiner earned the bonus points for turning the fastest time in green-white-checker group qualifying.

Joe Mancuso of Buffalo, N.Y., won the Race of Champions Late Model race.

Nick Robinson of Waverly, N.Y., won the Race of Champions FOAR SCORE Four Cylinder Dash Series race.
