Friday Night Notes…
“Double D” Dave Darland would go untouched Friday night at the 24th annual Indiana Sprint Week opener; leading all 30 laps at Gas-City I-69 Speedway while holding off young stars like Chris Windom and Robert Ballou for the victory. With the Indiana Sprint Week opener at Gas-City under Darlands belt, he will now go into round 2 tonight at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana with the Amsoil USAC National Sprint Cars ‘Indiana Sprint Week’ points lead.
Jason Meyers would finally find victory lane with the World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series last night. The Clovis, California native and 2010 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Champion has been unable to find victory lane all season until last night; picking up with 35 lapper at Cedar Lake Speedway in wonderful Wisconsin for a $10,000 top prize. Knoxville regular in 2011, Danny Lasoski, would finish 2nd- with 20 time Outlaw Champion, Steve Kinser, rounding out the top 3. Interesting note; part time Kasey Kahne Racing 410 sprint car pilot, Brad Sweet, lead all the KKR entries with a 5th place finish. The Outlaws head to Beaver Dam tonight to finish out their Wisconsin get-a-way weekend.
Shane Stewart ended in ASCS victory lane last night- but it wasn’t with the National Tour. Stewart found himself in ASCS Midwest Regional victory lane last night for the first time this season; picking up the 25 lap win at Jackson Speedway in Jackson, MN. The ASCS National Tour, which Stewart currently leads the points in and competes full time with, gets back to action next weekend. Other ASCS National Tour contenders that were in competition last night at Jackson include Jason Johnson, Tony Bruce Jr., Wayne Johnson, and Brady Bacon. Jason Johnson was 2nd last night at Jackson Speedway, with Wayne Johnson rounding out the top 3.
Rain spoiled a few Friday night racetracks in the northeast part of the country yesterday; Lernerville Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway were 2 tracks that fell victim to rain that offer 410ci sprint car weekly competition. Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio was able to get their program in the books; with Byron Reed picking up the victory. Rob Chaney was also in victory lane last night; grabbing the opening night victory at Wayne County Speedway in eastern Ohio. There was roughly a full field of cars at Attica; while Wayne County had 30+.
