Coby Steals Show in First Start to Star in the 100th Official ORS Race.
Indianapolis, IN - On a wild Wednesday night, where the racing was action packed, and the ego's a bit bruised. The fireworks popped off for Corey Coby, capping off ORS's 100th race in stunning fashion. In just his first race with ORS, Coby not only showed the way through most of the event, but eventually won out due to fuel strategy proving to be the winning call after a late restart. Speed and intuition was a dangerous combination on this night and Coby was the class of the field.
Starting off the nights festivities was qualifying and bringing home the pole position was the man who all during practice complained of the track and the dubious idea of running the trucks here at all. Alas, he powered through the strife to put Zach Gandees' first pole of the season on the board. Between he and Michael Montgomery, the two looked to be the dominant ones during the opening run. However when the first pit cycle came around, Gandees' truck looked to suffer from adjustments as Montgomery continued to show the way. As the stage wore on Montgomery's initial strength slowly turned against him as Pacey Wigent and company began closing the gap. However, Montgomery's early advantage proved to be enough as he would notch his first stage win of the season.
Stage 2 saw the balance of power shift from Montgomery to Wigent and eventually Coby. Wigent appeared to win out as the strongest truck as Montgomery faded but as the stage continued Coby slowly came into the fold, marking himself a contender and putting serious pressure on Wigent. The battle at the top became fierce with blocks and draft breaking moves aplenty. Wigent would hold off the likes of Coby and Montgomery to secure his 6th stage win of the season, further marking his territory at the top of the standings.
The races final stage saw some of the fiercest battling yet, with much of the field kept under a blanket as the race resumed. With enough battling Coby and Wigent would wiggle away from the rest of the field until the races first caution struck 13 laps in. The old adage cautions breed cautions remained true, as two more cautions would add an extra wrinkle to the mix with the final restart bringing the racing back to full bore with 12 laps to go. Right on the edge of fuel mileage. As a good number of drivers would elect to save, several went all out while pitting in the final 5 laps. The mix of strategies saw the running order rearranged, and Coby back out front after contact had pushed him outside the top 5. James Robinson would put the pressure on in the final laps, but would find the fumes first as Coby would coast his 88 Chevy across the bricks to seal the deal winning in his first ORS race. Dylan Malone would fight back to a second place finish after as earlier incident had seen the 93 relegated to the back. Sam Wade would finish his night solidly with a 3rd as Pacey Wigent would come home 4th. Zach Gandee would finish the night 5th to cap off a novel points day.
The top 5 in points didn't see any shake ups as Wigent continues to extend his points lead with just 2 races remaining to the Chase. However Michael Montgomery has overtaken Ryan Lewis for the 6th position in the standings, standing 32 points behind Malone for the final transfer spot. The solid nights for Gandee and Malone see them stretch out just a bit from the cut off line, but Montgomery's stage performance keeps the 14 team alive and the pressure on the competitors ahead to stay on their toes. Anything can happen with 2 races remaining, and with ISM the site of many an exciting races, we may have another on the horizon.
