As the Ohio Sprint Speedweek came to an end tonight at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio; another notorious sprint car speedweek kicked off at the Lincoln Speedway in south central, Pennsylvania. The 2011 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek kicked off this evening with a bang and will continue to highlight the sprint car racing world’s calendar for the next week.
Cory Haas, a 358 sprint car champion and recent class graduate, who now competes in the 410ci class on a full time basis, brought home the $5,000 payday and his first speedweek win of his sprint car career this evening during the Pennsylvania Speedweek Opener at the Lincoln Speedway just outside of York, Pennsylvania. Haas would hold off charges by the likes of Fred Rahmer, Brian Leppo, and eventually Daryn Pittman and Lincoln Speedway Champion, Brian Montieth, to win the 30 lap main event. Fred Rahmer was the evening’s fast timer of the 32 sprint car entries. Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek continues tomorrow at the Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pennsylvania.
Interestingly enough, Cory Haas not only won the 30 lap A-main event in fantastic style; using the bottom line with perfection and riding inches from the gaurdrail- but also won with a Fully Injected sticker on the side panel. Haas is Fully Injected’s first winner of 2011.
Ohio Sprint Speedweek came to an end tonight at the Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio. Tim Shaffer, the 2010 Knoxville Nationals Champion and All Star Circuit of Champions Champion, ended his speedweek with reasonable fashion, winning the 50 lap finale and taking the $10,000 payday. Danny Holtgraver, the 2010 Lernerville Speedway Track Champion and Pittsburgh, PA native, earned a top five finish at the Ohio finale- crossing the line in 4th place. Greg Wilson and Dale Blaney, Wednesday night’s winner at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, rounded out the top 3.
Donny Schatz of Fargo, North Dakota captured tonight’s World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series main event at Princeton Speedway in Minnesota. Jason Sides, and Steve Kinser rounded out the podium finishes.
Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania had their usual Saturday night regular show featuring 410 sprint cars and a slew of FI endorsers. Veteran, Bob Felmlee, took home the win in the sprint car class main evening over Fully Injected’s Brandon Matus and Rod George. Brandon Matus continues to turn around his luck at Mercer- slowly transforming his bad luck results at the Mercer based bullring and converting them into front pack fininshes.
