Hot Laps

by Michael Perricone

Thefinal week of the 2014 Riverhead Raceway season featured a 40-lapper for the INEX Legend Division and Enduros.

Even though Kyle Soper is the 2014 Legend Division Champion, on Sat., Sept. 27, 2014, Brendon Bockflashed back to 2013 and dominated the division. Bock set fast time in time trials and was the class of the field from green to checkeredflag. Richie Davidowitz, who put together a hot streak of his own toward the end of the season, was second and Artie Pedersen was third.

Another dominant driver this season was Jimmy White, Jr. Whether in Blunderbust, Demolition Derby or Enduro action, White appeared in contention for the victory. White crossed the linefirst on this night, but was stripped of the win for “refusing tech. inspection.”Though the driver vehemently denies the charges, at least two websites reported the same result.The winner was James Charrier for the second year in a row. Another win of note was Gregory Harris, who unstrapped from the #0 Legend and won the Truck Enduro.

FROM THE PITS: Mike Mujsce, Sr. confided that he and Mujsce Racing Owner Debby Anderson will campaign two Figure 8 cars weekly in 2015. Tom Ferrara isfirst choice for the second seat. However, if he is not committed to a full season, another driver will be named...Bob Finan cleared up a misconception for me this week. While Roger Maynor of Bay Shore is 2014 Figure 8 Champion, Kenny Hyde, Jr. is SAFER Champion because Maynor is not a member of the Suffolk Association of Figure Eight Racing.
