Alan Krimes Earns Two Wins In 2012; Second In PA Speedweek Standings
Denver, PA (11/25/2012) – Denver, Pennsylvania native and Central Pennsylvania ‘410’ sprint car regular, Alan Krimes, celebrates another successful season racing with the ‘Pennsylvania Posse.’ The second generation sprint car driver found himself inside the top ten of the final Speedway Motors Central PA Sprint Car Point Series standings at the conclusion of the 2012 season. The pilot of the Conestoga Valley Garage no. 87 ‘410’ sprint car finished ninth (9th) in the final Central PA standings on the strength of two (2) victories and multiple top ten finishes. Krimes’ two sprint car victories came at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania; and the Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The Conestoga Valley Garage/Krimes Racing Engines ’87’ program also earned a runner-up finish in the final Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek standings in 2012; finishing just behind multi-time speedweek champion, Fred Rahmer. Krimes’ worst finish during Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek was a 13th place performance at the Grandview Speedway; while using a fifth place finish, and two sixth place performances to keep the ’87’ within speedweek championship contention. The 13th place finish was the only time Krimes finished outside of the top ten during the entire speedweek series.
“We had a pretty decent season” expressed Krimes, “It was good to get two wins this season and finish second during PA speedweek…if it wasn’t for that flat tire at Grandview costing us a speedweek win, then we may have won the whole deal!”
Although finishing the 2012 season with only two (2) victories, the ’87’ program still proved to be plenty consistent and finished the 2012 season inside the top 10 in two different track championship standings. Krimes would finish his 2012 Williams Grove Speedway campaign ninth in the final standings; while using 15 top five finishes to put the Conestoga Valley Garage ’87’ fourth in the final Lincoln Speedway track championship standings.
Another 2012 season highlight for the ’87’ operation was their runner-up finish against the All-Star Circuit of Champions at the Lincoln Speedway back in early June. Krimes’ evening with the All-Stars would start with the 7th fastest time during qualifying time trials. The former ‘358’ sprint car competitor would then finish second during his respective heat race; holding off charges by Kevin Nouse, Fred Rahmer, and Paul McMahan. The Denver native would then go on to finish second in the 30 lap main event; crossing the start/finish line just behind eventual Lincoln Speedway track champion, Danny Dietrich.
The 2013 season in Central Pennsylvania is quickly approaching. It is possible that you will find the ’87’ team starting their 2013 campaign in Florida, but only time will tell. Stay tuned for more news and updates on Alan Krimes – right here at www.fullyinjected.com.
