Pittsburgh's Penn Motor Speedway
June 11, 2016


Imperial, PA (June 11, 2016)  Alex Ferree from Saxonburg was the winner of the Fourth Annual Herb Scott Memorial race on Saturday night at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway.  Ferree led all 41 laps of the main event sanctioned by the UFo Race Championship for the Diehl Automotive Super Late Models, earning $4,000 in becoming the fourth different winner of this event.  Other winners on the night of racing to honor Scott, a Western Pennsylvania racing legend, included John Mollick of Toronto, OH in the Precise Racing Products RUSH Pro Late Models.  Todd Weldon from Monongahela notched his second victory on the second completed race night in the Sunoco Race Fuels Sportsman.  Karlee Kovacs from Carnegie notched her first victory in the Miley BP Car Wash Hobby Stocks.  Also going two-for-two in the Imperial Heights Garage Young Guns was Michael Jackson of South Park.

The redraw for the top ten starting positions for the 41-lap Herb Scott Memorial Race was done by Deek Scott, Herb's son and an accomplished racer himself.  The redraw yielded front row starting positions for John Mollick and Alex Ferree for the event for the Diehl Automotive Super Late Models, sanctioned by the UFo Race Championship.  Ferree immediately nosed ahead at the green flag, but the event was quickly slowed on lap 1, as the first of three caution periods in the event occurred as Russell King spun on the backstretch.  Back to green, Ferree again controlled the race with Michael Davis, Mollick, Michael Norris, and Keith Barbara taking up the chase.  Fourth starting Davis closed in on Ferree, getting within a couple car lengths by lap 6.  Davis was challenging for the top spot, but slipped a little too high on lap 7 and made contact with the outside wall.  He would fall back out of contention, before retiring from the event on lap 9.  Mollick would inherit second, and Ferree had a 3.5 second lead wiped out when the second yellow flag of the event waved with 12 laps in.  Defending Herb Scott Memorial winner Jared Miley forced the caution period with a spin in turn three, and under yellow Mollick exited the race to the pit area.  Back to green, Ferree again controlled the lead ahead of fifth starting Keith Barbara.  The third and final caution period of the event came on lap 19 for debris.  Ferree would control the remaining distance in earning the victory, by 1.545 seconds at the finish over Barbara.  King was third, recovering from his lap 1 incident.  Norris was fourth after starting tenth on the grid.  Miley recovered from his lap 12 incident to finish fifth.  Virginia's Kyle Hardy, division point leader Brandon Burgoon, Jake Gunn, John Flinner, and Bill Kessler rounded out the top ten.  Heat winners were Barbara and Ferree.
