Justin Peck goes wire-to-wire at Sharon Speedway for Buckeye Cup triumph

HARTFORD, Ohio (May 1, 2021) - Justin Peck has certainly found his stride in the Buckeye State, as the Monrovia, Indiana-native scored his second FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2021 season, doing so during Sharon Speedway’s annual Buckeye Cup on Saturday, May 1. Peck, driver of the Buch Motorsports No. 13 entry, led every circuit of the 30-lap contest to solidify his $6,000 payday, ultimately withstanding pressure from Cole Duncan and Dave Blaney before stretching his legs to a near-straightaway advantage. Impressive enough, Peck is now two for two in the Buckeye State this season during All Star championship points competition, knocking down his first during Attica’s Spring Nationals on Saturday, April 3.

Peck’s Buckeye Cup triumph also bumped his overall All Star win total to three, earning his first during a start at Macon Speedway in Macon, Illinois, on June 10, 2017. In addition, Peck remains in control of the All Star championship standings, holding down an 18-point lead over Ian Madsen.

“We just keep working. That’s the name of the game. We keep working and we keep getting better,” an elated Justin Peck said in Sharon Speedway victory lane, driver of the Coastal Race Parts, The Tree Center, No. 13 sprint car. “I tried to lose that race there pretty early on by running the top and smacking the wall. I actually knocked the ladder out of the car before we even got ten laps in. I just had to smarten up a little bit after that. I knew we had a fast race car. I just needed to finish the race.”

Working the very edge of Sharon Speedway’s smooth, but slick racing surface, Peck set the early tone, using his front row starting position to jump to an early advantage over Hunter Schuerenberg, Cole Duncan, Dave Blaney, and Ian Madsen.

Soon forced to rely on all available grooves and not just the top, Peck’s first and only hold up appeared in the form of traffic, stacking up quickly and eventually interfering with the leader for the first time on lap 11.

Although Peck did his best to navigate slower cars, a hornets nest was brewing behind him in the form of a fast closing Cole Duncan and smooth sailing Dave Blaney, each reeling in the Hoosier with every lap. With Duncan working the middle and Blaney working the bottom, the duo finally caught the tail tank of Peck by lap 16, now with no lappers between them and all separated by less than a second.

Despite a few brake checks in traffic, and continuous pressure from Duncan and Blaney, Peck prevailed, creating distance among the back markers and stretching his legs to almost a second. By lap 22, Peck had pushed his gap to three lappers between himself and Duncan.

With Peck now nowhere to be found, Duncan would have to settle for second, followed by Ian Madsen, Zeb Wise, and Bill Balog. Dave Blaney, who was battling in the third position at the time the final checkers flew, was eventually disqualified for missing the scales at the conclusion of the main event; he was scored 25th.

“We were able to put a whole night together,” Peck continued. “We qualified good enough tonight where we just had to transfer through our heat race to make the dash. And that’s the name of the game. You need to put yourself in a position early and start up front in these things. We fine tune things as the night goes on. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been a dream to drive for these guys.”

Hopping back across the Pennsylvania state line, Tri City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pennsylvania, will conclude the weekend’s agenda with a Sunday night showstopper on May 2. Ending a near-four year hiatus at the Venango County venue, the All Stars last visited Tri City on July 23, 2017, with the “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer scoring the victory; Sunday’s return will award a $6,000 payday.
