Team Fully Injected weekend round-up:
Danny Holtgraver, the youngster from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and 2010 Lernerville Speedway Track Champion, started outside the top ten last evening in the Mercer Raceway Park feature event. The former MRP feature winner this season climbed from the 11th starting position to finish 2nd, behind veteran Bob Felmlee. Holtgraver owns feature wins this year at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, Mercer Raceway Park, and Lernerville Speedway.
Adam Kekich, one of the newest members of the Fully Injected mission, started in lucky position number 13 in last night’s Mercer Raceway Park 25 lapper. Kekich proved that starting 13th was everything but bad luck and climbed six positions to finish 7th in the feature event.
Rod George, the Kittanning, Pennsylvania resident and recent winner for the FI program, started 12th in last nights’s 25 lap Mercer feature event, and would climb seven positions to claim a top five performance. George would end up 5th last night; still in competition for the 2011 Mercer Raceway Park track championship. Rod owns multiple victories this year including wins at Mercer Raceway Park and Dog Hollow Speedway; which was worth $2500.
Brandon Matus, known as the “Wheelman” by many, started in the 18th position last night in Mercer Raceway Park’s feature event for the 410 sprinters. He would climb 9 positions to finish inside the top 10 when the checkers flew; crossing the line in 9th position. The “Wheelman” has been enjoying 2011 success at the Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania; as well as on and off progress at Mercer Raceway Park.
Scott Priester was also in competition last night at MRP, but suffered some hard luck in the mean time. Piloting the Dionise #15 at Mercer Raceway Park, Scott would have to take an unexpected sudden action in the 25 lap 410 feature by trying to avoid a spun car. The potential contact would result in Priester also having to spin. Misfortune would strike again as the Rimersburg native would lose his brakes during the remainder of the 25 feature event, but still would finish 11th.
After a bad pill draw, which put the York, Pennsylvania native behind the eight ball for the remainder of the Friday night WoO Williams Grove program, Cory Haas would turn his luck around on Saturday evening and put himself in the starting line up of the $20,000 to win Summer Nationals finale. After failing to make it out of the Last Chance Showdown on Friday evening, Haas would earn a 24th starting position in the World of Outlaws Summer Nationals finale on Saturday night by way of transfering from his heat race to the main event. The former 358ci full time competitor in central Pennsylvania would pull off the racetrack early and be scored 26th.
