FULTON, NY (September 15, 2019) – The running of the Fall Frenzy 100 at Oswego Kartway under a full moon sky on Friday the 13th, provided an unpredictable evening of action which saw Seth Perrin survive a 59-minute main event, with no fuel left in the tank of his No. 01 machine.

Perrin, who made the 100-lap main event by virtue of a track provisional, started 17th on the grid and inherited the lead with only six laps remaining after leaders Devon Tonkin and Dan Kapuscinski tangled for the lead and Chris Natoli ran out of fuel.

From there, Perrin would build a comfortable lead over the final six laps before running out of fuel himself on the final lap, but managed to coast home for the win worth more than $500, for his biggest career victory at Oswego Kartway.

Natoli, who ran out of fuel while leading under caution with six laps remaining, managed to charge back through the field for the runner-up position after pitting for fuel with Robert Stevens, David Hackett Jr. and Tonkin in the top five positions after 100-green flag laps.

Dan Marsden set fast time in time trials, earning $100 in Memory of James Shutts and the pole position for the night’s 100-lapper. Starting behind Marsden at the drop of the green were Kyle Weeks, Ryan Kendall, Hackett and Kapuscinski.

Countless cautions at the beginning of the event changed the order numerous times before even one lap could be completed, but eventually it would be Marsden leading out front early on in the No. 81.

As the race progressed it was clear that being in the lead was not the place to be, as Marsden would spin out front while working a lapped kart before the halfway point of the race.

Tonkin would inherit the lead in the No. 15 with Natoli riding second as Kapuscinski was working his way back from 17th after an incident on the race’s first lap.
Eventually Kapuscinski would work by Natoli for second and give chase to Tonkin out front as the cross flags waved at lap 50.

With 54-laps in the books on the Kartway’s tricky slick surface, Kapuscinski made his bid for the lead into turn three on Tonkin, but caught the inside the No. 15 just enough to cause Tonkin to spin which sent both karts to the rear of the field.

With just under 50-laps remaining, Natoli was now the leader.

As the race pushed on Natoli led Marsden and Caleb Colloca at the front of the field with Tonkin and Kapuscinski linked up and making moves to get back to the top five, which eventually they did.

But again, being in the lead was a curse in this night’s main.

As the race passed 25-laps to go the three front runners collided sending Natoli and Colloca to the rear, with Marsden pulling pit side. With only 23-laps remaining Tonkin and Kapuscinski once again found themselves at the lead, right where they were at lap 54.

As the green flag fell Tonkin and Kapuscinski raced out front over the course of the next 20-laps, with Natoli working back to third place yet again.
The track’s slick racing surface required racers to be low on the Kartway leaving little room to work with and coming to the line for five to go, Kapuscinski tried for the lead for the second time on the night on Tonkin.

As the duo approached the starter’s stand, Kapuscinski had the inside line, but yet again the pair touched sending both to the infield for the second time during the night.

Natoli was now back to the lead with six laps remaining, over Perrin, who had cautiously stayed clean all night and now found himself in second.
However, for the fifth time on the night, the leader was snake bit.

While riding under caution, Natoli’s No. 33 ran out of fuel, handing the lead over to Perrin at lap 94. Natoli was able to pit for fuel under yellow and rejoin the field.

Perrin now hoped to break the curse and hold onto the lead for the final six laps. Despite fates attempt to steal the win away, Perrin was able to roll under the checkered flag for the win, out of fuel, pocketing $500.

Natoli, Stevens, Hackett, Tonkin and Rick Criaulli were the top six finishes and the only drivers to finish the full 100-lap distance.

Chance Weaver, Kapuscinski, Russ Crisafulli and Colloca would officially be scored in the top ten at night’s end.

Natoli won the night’s B-Main to gain entry into the field with Tonkin, Jeremy Tuttle and Doug Stearly also advancing through to the A-Main.

Perrin was the night’s hard charger, picking up an extra $50 in Memory of James Shutts.

Logan Crisafulli was the winner of the night’s Fall Brawl 50 main event over TJ Clayton and Gary Miles, earning a $50 gift certificate from Performance Manufacturing.

Other support division wins went to Chad Jacobson (Masters), Ryan Hall (Super Heavy), Callen Cleary (Jr. Green), Logan Abbott (Jr. Unrestricted), Seth Whitney (Sr. Blue), Connor Parsons (Sr. Green), Natoli (State Clone Heavy) and Kapuscinski (State Clone Light).
