Season-ending streak sends Gould to 4th Razor Chassis South Central Region prize

first_imgGould now has 139 wins over the course of his IMCA Modified career, a total that has him in the top 25 all-time for the division. Gould won his final six, and seven of his last eight IMCA Modified starts of the season in clinching his career fourth Razor Chassis South Central Region crown. William Gould ended the 2019 season with six straight IMCA Modified feature wins and his career fourth Razor Chassis South Central Region championship. (Photo by Stacy Kolar, Southern Sass Photography) HIS SPONSORS: Gould Race Cars and Innovative Traction Solutions, both of Calera; D&R Construction, Caney; Bob’s Machine Shop, Hulbert; Champs Graphics and T’s of Elk City; Smiley’s Racing Products of Mesquite, Texas; Guillaume Motorsports of Haslet, Texas; Dirt Defender of Waxahachie, Texas; Mark Herring Race Engines, Plainview, Texas; 4T Concrete Pumping, Whitesborough, Texas; Adams Automotive, Van Alstyne, Texas; Jerry’s Bit Service, Decatur, Texas; Speed Shift TV; Hanjack Farms; Carey Menasco; John and Nikki Webb; Dustin Matlock; Steven Lewallen; BSB Manufacturing of Wellington, Kan.; Landrum Springs of Mentone, Ind.; and Pat Fagen and Fast Shafts of Des Moines, Iowa. HIS CREW: Wife Dana, son David and daughter Daisy.  CALERA, Okla. – With titles on the line, William Gould was at his best. His travels took Gould to 10 different tracks. He already had Southern Oklahoma Speedway and E3 Spark Plus Oklahoma State titles in hand before that late flurry of feature wins, which added the Grayson County Speedway track and ultimately the regional prize to his resume. From Calera, Okla., Gould collected 15 feature wins, five of them coming in a dozen open motor outings, along with another 22 top five finishes in 55 starts.center_img Starts 55                     Wins 15                         Additional Top Fives 22 “We didn’t do anything different the last month and a half,” said Gould, who had struggled with powerplant issues. “We had a string of bad luck with crate engines but when the car ran, everything was fine.” “Our number and percentage of wins were not outstanding. This was not a Cinderella season for us by any means,” said Gould, looking forward to better things in 2020. “The good news is we’re still racing.” He’d won national and regional crowns in 2013, then paced regional points again in 2014 and 2017. “Both Southern Oklahoma and Grayson County are about an hour away from home. If you’re going to win the region and have hopes of doing well nationally (he was third) you need to win two track championships and have good car counts,” Gould said. “When you find a track that is loyal to the sanctioning body, you need to be loyal to that track. There are a lot of more expensive options if you want to go racing but I’d rather save the money.” And his best is very, very good.last_img read more

Field hockey Lakers win twice, stay close in loss to B’ville

first_imgFive games into the 2019 regular season, the Cazenovia field hockey team is quite aware of  its strengths and weaknesses, thanks to the high-quality opposition it has encountered.Traveling to Cato-Meridian last Monday afternoon, the Lakers got a chance to showcase its offense for the first time in a large-scale manner as it scored four times in each half and romped past the Blue Devils 8-1.Lily Sorbello led the way, notching the first three-goal hat trick of her career to go with an assist. Carley Lounsbury scored twice, with Molly Brown and Ava Hartley each getting one goal and one assist. Kiara Dolan also had a goal and Ella Huftalen added an assist. Then a five-game homestand got underway on Wednesday, Cazenovia taking on Port Byron/Union Springs. The Lakers scored in the first half and, despite the Panthers getting on the board in the second half, pulled away 3-1 for its third consecutive victory.Sorbello and Lounsbury each had goals, as did Peyton Basic, the offense spread around as Brown earned an assist. Cazenovia’s defense was still quite stingy, limiting Port Byron/Union Springs to just two shots.A far tougher test loomed on Friday, when Baldwinsville showed up at Burton Street Elementary, the Bees having just seen Emma Brushingham notch three goals and one assist in a 4-1 win at Rome Free Academy two days earlier. Tags: Cazenoviafield hockey Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Cazenovia held up well, but B’ville prevailed 2-1, getting both of its goals in the first half, one from Leah Tuch, the other from Emma Dugan as Brushingham got credit for an assist.Hartley’s unassisted goal in the second half cut the Bees’ margin to one, but the Lakers could not quite catch up, B’ville goalie Sara Smiley finishing with four saves.For the most part, Cazenovia practices and rests this week, but its single game would be a big one as OHSL rival Weedsport visits Burton Street on Tuesday afternoon.last_img read more
