Achzet Winner of IrRegular 45

Joe Achzet in Right Place at Right Time for IrRegular 45 Win

Oswego, NY – June 23, 2015…Joe Achzet capitalized on a late race mistake by leader Chris Meyers to bring home his first Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series rFactor win in the 1st to Finish Docks & Hoists IrRegular 45 Tuesday night at Oswego Speedway.

IrRegular 45 top three finishers

Joe Achzet beat Keith Powell and Chris Meyers for the 1st to Finish Docks & Hoists IrRegular 45 win.

Keith Powell drove his CPR Motorsports machine home for second and Meyers was able to rally from the back into the top three.

Achzet was a surprised winner after watching early leader Chris Meyers pull away from the field at will. “Chris was off and gone after about lap five so I don’t know what happened to him, all of a sudden he was turned around on the backstretch and got put to the back for bringing out the caution, but its good to be back,” he said.

Keith Powell made his way to the podium for the second time in two weeks with his best finish so far this season of second place. He said, “I didn’t really have anything for Chris. He took off at the beginning I don’t know what happened to him and it’s a real bummer to see him spun out.”  He added, “Congrats to Joe, all in all a real fun night, I appreciate all the guys that showed up.”

Chris Meyers was visibly upset after nearly winning for the second week in a row. “I went to the inside of the 35 to put a lap on him I saw his left front come towards my right front and I thought we were going to make contact, so I moved, and by the time i got it corrected it was too far gone,” said a disappointed third place finisher.

The race got underway to an inauspicious start when pole sitter Dave Soja and fellow front row starter Rob Warren collided in turn three with third place starter Ray Sand, Jr. Steve Callahan was also collected in the crash before even a lap could be run.

A complete restart was called by race director Dave Brigandi with the four drivers involved being sent to the rear of the new line-up.

Heat race wins went to Keith Powell and Ray Sand, Jr. while Rob Warren and Meyers won the semi-feature races.
