Phelps Makes Winning Call
FULTON, N.Y. — During the week Chad Phelps made a call to Billy Colton at Troyer looking for advice on car setup. That advice paid off as Phelps took the big 35-lap Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modified win on Saturday night at the Fulton Speedway.
On lap 17, Phelps shot from third to the lead, and then outran Robbie Bellinger in the late stages for the popular win.
“It was unbelievable. I got to give hats off to Billy Colton (Troyer Race Cars), we were complete junk last week with this new car so we threw some stuff at it, let me tell you, it was way better than it was,” Phelps said. “I’m not like the professionals, sometimes we’re second rate as I sometimes like to say. The track had a lot of bite and that helped. We have it pointed in the right direction and we were able to hold them off.
“I don’t know how close those guys were, we had a decent starting spot that helped. You got to get that with these guys, it’s such a tough group we run with every week. It feels good to get this out of the way. Hopefully we did the right thing and are now going in the right direction.”
Rob Bellinger finished second ahead of Chris Hile, Billy Decker and Dan Vauter.
Other winners were Ron Davis III (SUNY Canton Sportsman), Alan Fink (NAPA Late Models), Gary Hoppins (E&V Energy Novice Sportsman), Skip DeGroff (Four Cylinder Stocks) and Jeff Isabell Jr. (Mod Lites).
