Andrew Schartner Makes It Two In A Row - Wins Tony White Memorial At Oswego

The Tony White Memorial race for the Pathfinder Bank Small Block Supermodified class at Oswego Speedway was the only "major" event for the division that Andrew Schartner had not won since started racing the Crow Motorsports No. 18 four years ago.

Now he has.

Saturday night the 24-year-old Mechanical Engineer survived a major pile-up on the opening lap and took the lead from Tim Gareau on lap 8 and then held off the repeated challenges of a determined Mike Bond to win his second straight feature at the "Fast 5/8-mile" oval.

It was one jubilant victory lane celebration for a racer that most Oswego insiders would love to see move up to the track's premier Supermodified division.

"This one is really special," Andrew said. "This was the only big money race for this class that we hadn't won. It means a lot also to win this because it's a tribute to Tony. I'm pumped because we could easily have been taken out in that big pileup but we got away with not having any damage and the car was fast again this week. I cannot thank this whole Crow Motorsports Team enough for all their hard work and my sponsors for all their support as well. This one is for them!"

Of his race with Bond, Andrew commented, "I could see when I was behind him that he was faster than me at the end of the back straightaway. Once I passed him I knew I had to protect going into turn three every lap instead of running the line I wanted to. That slowed me down but I was determined. When you pass Mike Bond to win a race you've accomplished something. This was the toughest win I've had yet!"

Andrew and the Crow Motorsports team will be back in action this weekend as he tries to make it three straight wins on the season when the Pathfinder SBS division takes to the track for their 30-lap feature.
