Ending a long absence from Victory Lane at The Action Track, Eric Heydenreich took the 270cc Micro Sprint Feature on Saturday night. The Heydenreich family name has long been associated with racing in the Bloomsburg area and Eric has continued that presence. Starting on the pole, Heydenreich refused to surrender the lead to second place finisher, Chris Smith, also of Bloomsburg. Finishing third was Steve Lenig, Selinsgrove, with Jason Rice, New Tripoli, fourth. Charging into the fifth place was Brian Kishbaugh, Nescopeck, Joe Bednarski, Plymouth, was sixth and Jeff Furlong was seventh. Wrapping up the top ten were Skeetz Hockenbrock, Paxinos, in the eighth spot, Neil Petock, Bloomsburg, ninth, and Shane Penny, Nescopeck, tenth.
For the second consecutive week, Shane Penny took the checkered flag in the 250cc Sportsman Micro Sprint Feature. He was followed across the line by Chad Thomas, New Berlin, and Rick Morris, Catawissa, in third place. Fourth place went to Hoss Uhrin, Freeland. Crossing the line in the fifth spot was Bill Puterbaugh, Millville, in sixth, Rob Pajauis, Asbury, NJ., and in seventh, it was Jason Harman. Kyle Rhoads, Sunbury, was eighth, Jeff Schall, Hackettstown, NJ,. ninth, and Mike Kelly came in tenth.
In the Rookie Micro Sprint Feature, Phil Weinsteiger, Green Lane, managed to pull off a win. Sean Good, from Bloomsburg, a previous Action Track winner, was second.
