On Victory Lane At Greenwood Valley
By Than Mitchell
Neil Petock proved last week's Micro Sprint Feature win at the Greenwood Valley Action Track on Saturday night was just the beginning. Petock, a native of Bloomsburg, lead all from flag to flag after starting on the pole in a race marred by numerous yellow flags. Colby Womer, Mt. Pleasant Mills, made several unsuccessful tries to pull inside of the lead car before settling for a second place finish. Jeff Furlong, Selinsgrove, was third while Brad McClelland was fourth. A.J. Walters, Bloomsburg, crossed the line fifth, followed by Steve Lenig, Selinsgrove, in sixth and Scott Kishbaugh, Nescopeck, in seventh. Joel VanBuskirk, Selinsgrove, was eighth, Chris Smith, Bloomsburg, ninth, and in tenth place was Jim Reese, Bloomsburg.
It was a first win for 16 year old Brett Arndt of Topton, in the Rookie Micro Sprint Feature at Greenwood Valley. Arngt, nearly speechless in his post race interview, held off Brian Wawroski, Bloomsburg, who put on an exciting show as he tried in vainly to get around Arndt. Milton's Joey Finan was third and Jim Schlieg, Middleburg, was fourth, while the fifth place finisher was Frank Veneczia, Little Ferry, NJ. In sixth place was Dillon Stein, Auburn, seventh was Chad Thomas, New Berlin, and eighth was Phil Weinstiger, Green Lane. Wrapping up the top 10 were Rick Morris, Catawissa, and Joe Hogan, Plymouth.
Gates open at 3, warm-ups at 5:30 every Saturday through October, plan to make it a family outing and enjoy the excitement at the Greenwood Valley Action Track located 3 1/2 miles east of Millville just off route 254.
