Shane "West Coast Flash" Kreidler 2003 USA Sprints Champion
December 29,2003 - Fort Myers,Florida - Shane "West Coast Flash" Kreidler Driving his Family owned and "Coach" Dan Kriedler Wrenched J&J Auto Sponsored #52 Team Kriedler 99 Maxim Takes His First USA Sprints Championship Season with a Dominating 5 Wins.
Shane was always in the Hunt and was always a threat to Win each and every nite out.He was pressed by David "Skeeter" Kelly in the Big Tree Nursery/Kellys Trucking Sprinter #12 who brought home 3 Wins with brother Andy "HammerDown" Kelly driving the Skaggs Tire Service #11 with 2 wins.These 3 battled mostly all year and especially the latter part of the season but Kreidler was able to just nip The "Hammer" and hold on for a very impressive ChampionshipVictory in the last race!
RC Roper piloting the #92 "Hayloft Western Wear/Keels & Wheels Special" from Fort Myers scored 2 Wins early on in the Season but was not able to overcome a serious accident and a run of "gremlins" in the last 4 Races met with a dissapointing season.There were several guys who showed promise and managed 1 Win during the 2003 Season and they were "Tiny" Tim George in the #1 Venice Wrecker Shaw as well as Tyler "Young Gun" Godwin's #4 Schnee "Grandpa's" Special from Tampa along with Tony "Wildman" Pinero from Plant City in the Jani-King Stanton #3 and Mike "Hollywood" Shroeder from Boyton Beach Florida in the Slammers Sports Bar #6.
Race Director "Chip" Charles Stick and Series Sponsor graciously donated the Year-End Awards and Trophys during the Banquet @ Thundercross Motorsports Park Clubhouse.Congrats to Shane and all the USA Sprints Drivers on a job well done as there were 8 different Winners out of 16 Races in 2003!
