Fourth Race Winter Series 2012/2013
Modified Division driver #65 Greg Sharp led the race until about half way when a car trying to get to the pits took him out. The #40 car driven by Dan Concelman took advantage of #65’s misfortune, grabbed the lead and won the race.
Sport Mod driver #40 Lance Brandt started in the three spot, worked his way to the front by the sixth lap and dominated the rest of the race for the win.
The Micro Sprint division had some thrills this race. Number 53, Justin Mallo rolled his car, this time in turn 3. Seconds later, the McLean boys, Austin and James, had an altercation during the red flag. James #3 hit the wall in turn one. Mallo’s team mate #153 Jordan Gleckler, had a little bad luck also, lost his chain and could not finish the race.
The RMDCRA Dwarf Jerry Hunter led for seven laps, stalled in turn four and could not finish the race. The Number 13 proved to be a lucky number as the 13 Doyle Deel, and 13R John Krepsel finished first and second. Number 28 Matt Burkey, finished third but hit the wall at the checkered flag and took out the whole right side of his new car.
“Rocky’s Auto” brought the dominant force to the track again this week in the Econo Division. The #50 Troy Whittar and David Rothrock #88X traded places early in the race but the 88X dominated the field. New driver, Victor Ward #222 hit the wall before the green flag was thrown and was unable to compete.
Josh Schweitzer in the #17S Street Stock was the standout driver and led the entire race. Josh spun out in the last lap and could not finish the race. The number 1 car driven by Mike Kennedy finished first with the #11 Kyle Claugh in tow.
