ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 3/10/12 – He’s known as “the Edge,” and four-time defending track champ Brian Montieth lived up to his nickname in claiming his first win of the year in the 25-lap “410” sprint car feature at Lincoln Speedway Saturday afternoon.
“It’s been a while since we had a curb like this,” said Montieth upon exiting his Auto Locator/Premier Auto Works #21 in victory lane, “I miss them! I like the rough tracks. They’re a little bit more demanding. I’ve gotta take my hat off to the guys in the shop. They put another car together this week. I destroyed that one last week, and that was my fault. They ain’t mad at me, they just built me another one.”
Montieth used all racing grooves to move through the field in his qualifying event (fourth to first), and then took to the top side for the feature, coming from seventh starting spot to grab the lead from race-long leader Nick Schlauch, Jr. exiting turn two of the 11th lap.
