June 23, 2013- For the first time in several seasons, Dylan Evoy had posted to back to back DNF (Did Not Finish) with being caught up in crashes last Saturday night at Brockville, and again on Wednesday night in a rare visit to Can Am Motorsports Park in Lafargeville, New York. They were hoping to put that behind them going into this past weekend as they returned to Mohawk International Raceway on Friday evening, and Brockville Speedway on Saturday night.
At Mohawk Raceway, Dylan has more wins than anyone in the history of the Sportsman division at the track. and after finishing second the previous week, he was looking to get back on track and return to Victory Lane.
He started from deep in the field in his qualifying heat race, and worked his way up to third place before the checkered flag. He started the 20 lap main event from the 19th position and as the green flag dropped Evoy charged through the field.
A couple caution periods kept the field bunched together, and after just four laps of racing he was well inside the top 10. Before the race hit the halfway point, Dylan had now climbed inside the top five, and a restart on lap nine was just what he needed as he powered to the outside of the track with a thrilling move to grab the lead as the race resumed. He remained out front for the final distance, and earned his third win at Mohawk Raceway in four starts in 2013.
“The car was working really good tonight. I really have to thank all the crew, and our sponsors for all their support this season”, says Evoy from victory lane. “Hopefully we can keep it going throughout the season”.
The next stop for the Evoy team was Brockville Ontario Speedway on Saturday night. Unlike their season at Mohawk Raceway, Evoy has struggled in the early part of the season trying to get their new car dialled in. After a delay at the track due to rain in the area, Evoy hit the track for his qualifying heat race. He started from the fifth position, but was unable to make up any ground due to the wet track conditions and finished in fifth place. In the 25 lap main event, Dylan started from the 11th position on the inside of row six and patiently worked his way forward. By lap 12 he was in sixth place and continued to pursue a top five result. On the final restart with just six laps remaining, Dylan was able to gain two more positions and finished with a solid fourth place effort.
This coming weekend, Dylan will return to Mohawk International Raceway on Friday night and will be back at Brockville Speedway on Saturday evening.
