From Victory Lane At Greenwood Valley . . . .
by Than Mitchell
It was Jason Kemp, a Greenwood Valley Action Track veteran, who won the Micro Sprint Feature on Saturday night. In addition, like any seasoned driver, the Bloomsburg resident expressed his appreciation for the support of his pit crew and family for helping make the win and the season a reality. David Utt, Catawissa, settled for a second place after chasing Kemp to the line ahead of Dave Shirk. In the fourth position was Steve Lenig from Selinsgrove while Scott Tate, Middleburg, was fifth, Chris Smith, Bloomsburg, was sixth and Jeff Furlong, Selinsgrove, was seventh. The final three in the top ten were Brian Kishbaugh, Nescopeck, Joe Bednarski, Wyoming, and Joel VanBuskirk, Selinsgrove.
The yellow flag flew repeatedly in the Rookie Micro Sprint Feature, but Ross Perchak, Hazelton, steered clear of the fray and came home a winner. In the second spot was Shane Penny, Nescopeck, third was K.C. Smith, Reading, and fourth was Dave Williams, Pottstown. In the fifth slot was A.J. Bast, Tower City, while Ray Peters from Shickshinny, was sixth and Glen Walp, Wapwallopen, came in seventh. Eighth place was taken by Rick Morris, Catawissa, ninth was Frank Venezia, Little Ferry, NJ, and Brit Rider, Millville, was tenth.
A small field limited the Mini Sprints to an exhibition race, but the low priced but powerful cars provided some exciting laps. It's hoped that more Minis will join the Show at The Action Track.
Gate will open next Saturday at 3, warm-ups at 5:30 and racing will get underway at about 6:30 at The Greenwood Valley Action Track, located 3 1/2 miles east of Millville just south of route 254. Bring the family and enjoy the best dirt track racing you can find anywhere. See you at The Action Track.
