Fornoro Scores NEMA World Series Win; Payne Tightens Up Points

Thompson, CT: After several weeks of trying, the Thompson International Speedway played host to the Northeastern Midget Association as part of the World Series of Stock Car Racing. It was worth the wait for Nokie Fornoro of Stroudsburg, PA who scored the win in dominating fashion under crystal clear skies. On lap 12 of the 25-lap main event, Fornoro drove around Adam Cantor for the lead and rocketed to his first NEMA midget win of the 2005 season.

Cantor came out of the pack from his sixth place starting position to gain the advantage on the initial start as the lead cars jockeyed for position. Randy Cabral in his family-owned machine followed through in second. Cabral ran in second for a single lap before giving up the spot to the charges of Joey Payne and Fornoro. Point leader Seitz made his way into the top-five by lap four.

Behind Cantor, Payne and Fornoro were waging a hard battle for the second spot. Fornoro was all over the back bumper of Payne. Lap after lap Fornoro looked high then low trying to take the spot away. Cantor, meanwhile, was able to gain a slight advantage.

On lap 10, Fornoro was able to make his move to take away the runner-up spot from Payne. Cantor watched his lead quickly disappear as the veteran charged. Fornoro was the new leader by the completion of lap 12. Once out front, Fornoro began to put some distance on Cantor in second.

The man on the move was Ryan Dolan, who had quietly made his way toward the front. With the laps winding down, Dolan worked his way past both Cabral and Seitz into the third position.

In the closing laps, Cabral made up some of the ground he had lost early in the feature to overtake Seitz. Cantor faded in the late stages of the event falling back slightly.

Fornoro was all-alone as he cruised under the checkers ahead of Payne, R. Dolan, Cabral and Seitz. In post race technical inspection, the #15 of Dolan was found to have unapproved wheel offset. Officially, Cantor rounded out the top-five.

By virtue of his second-place finish, Joey Payne gained valuable points on Ben Seitz heading into the last race of the 2005 season. The chase for the championship will come down to the wire between the two contenders. Only a handful of points now separate Payne from point leader Seitz.

The championship will be decided this weekend as the Waterford Speedbowl presents the Town Fair Tire Finale. NEMA heats are anticipated to roll off at approximately 1:15 PM on Saturday, November 5th with the feature action scheduled for Sunday shortly after noon.
