K.C. Cole of Conklin, N.Y., broke the ice by winning the FMP Modified championship. It was his first-ever title. A former track official who now finds a home behind the wheel of his No. 24 every Saturday night, Cole notched four wins. He didn't reach Victory Lane until July 2, but he proceeded to rack up three straight wins (July 2, 9 and 16).
Cole's final advantage was 10 points over Mike Stolarcyk III, who led the division with six victories, including the April 17 Southern Tier Open, June 25 41st Heath Memorial Night and Season Championship Night. Mike Stoddard, Joe Cole and '04 champion Gary Dence filled out the front five. Finishing sixth through 10th were Scott Bennett, Bob Chapman, Dan Harpell, Tyler Stoddard and Tom Pickerell.
