Winged Super Sprints
“Dirt’s Monster Half Mile”
PITTSBURGH, PA — Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway presents a special Sunday edition of racing action with the Winged Super Sprints scheduled to make their first appearance of 2013. The winged warriors will battle in a 20 lap main event with the winner’s portion of the purse being $2,000. The sprint main event will also pay $250 to start.
Danny Holtgraver, Ed Lynch, Jr. and Jack Sodeman, Jr. scored the Sprint Car victories in 2012 and all are expected to be in competition this Sunday. Lynch, Jr. has 16 PPMS wins in open wheel action while Holtgraver has four. Eric Williams may just be the hottest driver on the Western PA circuit as he has scored wins at both Lernerville Speedway and Mercer Raceway Park in the past month and will certainly contend for the win this weekend.
Several competitors who ran wingless last Saturday, Brandon Spithaler, Brandon and Brent Matus and Gary Rankin, will add the wings and make the necessary chassis adjustments needed to battle for this Sunday’s top prize. Brandon Matus was the highest finishing local competitor in the B.O.S.S. event as he finished sixth and this third generation driver will be looking for an even better finish this Sunday evening.
In addition to the winged warriors this Sunday evening’s racing action includes a complete program for the Diehl of Robinson Super Late Models, the Precise Racing Products RUSH Pro-Late Models, the Sunoco Race Fuels Late Model Sportsman, Miley BP Carwash Hobby Stocks and the Imperial Heights Garage Young Guns.
