Abbottstown, PA (March 3rd, 2013) – Alan Krimes would survive some early-race bad luck, and multiple red flags, on Saturday afternoon, March 2nd, and put his Conestoga Valley Garage no. 87 ‘410’ sprinter back inside the top ten at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania. The Denver, Pennsylvania native was in action at the Pigeon Hills, 3/8’s mile oval for a second consecutive weekend; hoping to turn his “Icebreaker 30”/ opening weekend runner-up finish from February 23rd into a victory lane appearance. Unfortunately for Alan Krimes, that was not the case.
The near frigid temperatures and periodic snow showers on Saturday were no match for Lincoln Speedway’s die-hard race fans and dedicated race teams; as many of Pennsylvania’s top ‘410’ teams still flooded the speedway pit area. There were nearly 30 ‘410’ sprinters signed-in for action at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday afternoon, March 2nd. Alan Krimes would qualify for the afternoon’s 25 lap, sprint car main event by finishing third during his respective heat race. The redraw would then allow the Conestoga Valley Garage ‘87’ to start the main event from the outside of row number five. After noticing a rear tire going flat during an opening feature-race caution; Alan Krimes would be forced to go pit side, replace the damaged tire, and resume the feature at the back of the twenty-four car field. The former Lincoln Speedway winner would persevere, and rally to finish just inside the top ten. The familiar ‘87’ would cross the start/finish line 9th in the running order; just behind Adam Wilt, and in front of legend, Lance Dewease.
Alan Krimes will be back in action next Saturday, March 9th, at the Lincoln Speedway for another afternoon of racing at the Pigeon Hills oval. Next Saturday’s event will be Lincoln’s last afternoon show of the spring season. The ‘358’ sprinters will also be on the afternoon card.
