Team Fully Injected’s Danny Holtgraver continues his 2011 tear by picking up the win last night at Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania. After another successful week on the road with the All-Star Circuit of Champions, the Pittsburgh native would return home to the local western PA track for a regular points night of Mercer Raceway Park racing. Danny withstood many cautions and late race charges by sprint car veteran, Bob Felmlee, to pick up his first victory at the Mercer 3/8’s mile facility in 2011. Danny started on the outside front row and lead every lap in the 25 circuit main event to pick up the win. Danny and the rest of the D4 operation will be in action this Tuesday night at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio for the Lou Blaney Memorial. Check back here at www.fullyinjected.com for more on that early this week.
Team Fully Injected teammate and long time veteran, Rod George, rallied from a 12th starting position last night to finish in the top 5. With many feature race cautions allowing the field to bunch for double file restarts, the Kittanning native would be able to take advantage of that situation and pass eight cars to claim a 4th place finish. Be sure to check back this week often as Rod and Brandon Matus will be featured in the newest edition of The Fully Injected “Out-of-Car Experience.”
Hunter Percert, Hunter Schuerenberg, of Sikeston, Missouri, picked up round two of USAC Indiana Sprint Week last night at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana. Schuerenberg would earn the win by passing young star, Chris Windom, with five laps remaining in the 30 lap main event to pick up the victory. Hunter would fail to transfer through his heat race at the start of evening, resulting in having to run the semi feature. That wouldn’t hurt the Missouri native’s spirits as Schuerenberg would pick up the next two race victories of the night; winning 12 lap Semi-feature and claiming the 30 lap main event. There were 40 cars signed into the Kokomo round; with ISW action returning to the clay tonight at the Lawrenceburg Speedway just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. Chris Windom’s runner-up finish last night allowed him to take over the 2011 USAC Indiana Sprint Week points race by 10 points over Clauson and Darland.
