FONDA, NY - After the Pro Stock feature on Saturday, June 20th at the Fonda Speedway the engine in the winning car of Pete Broderson was protested by Nick Stone. The engine was removed at the track and impounded by the Fonda Speedway.

The engine was taken on Tuesday to Boyd's Motorworks to inspect for a lightweight crank, rods and pistons. A representative from both teams were present on Tuesday during the inspection process and it was found that the internal components are GM factory with stamps and seals in place. Both teams shook hands and Pete Broderson was declared the official winner of the Pro Stock feature.

The win for Broderson on June 20 was his fourth of the 2015 season and his third in a row after winning the feature event back on June 13 followed by a big win in the DIRTcar Pro Stock Series event on June 18. It was also career win number 23 for Broderson which places him sixth on the Fonda Speedway All Time Pro Stock division win list with his first career win coming back on July 17, 2010. Broderson also has two track championships in the pro stock division at Fonda back to back in 2012 and 2013.

On Saturday evening June 27 at the Fonda Speedway all divisions will be in action along with the Atlantic Coast Old Timers (ACOT). It is also Kids Club Pie the Pros Night where eight lucky Kids Club Members will get to throw pies at eight pre-selected drivers which were voted on by Kids Club Members.

Saturday evening he scored a convincing win at the track for his second career win at the historic Montgomery County Fairgrounds facility with his first win coming back on 5/4/2013.

“It feels good to get here to victory lane again,” Kislowski said after beating Bobby Varin to the checkered flag. “It is tough to get here especially when you have to beat Bobby (Varin) in order to do it.”
