From Victory Lane At Greenwood Valley
by Than Mitchell
Heavy traffic plus good driving added up to victory in Saturday night's Micro Sprint Feature at The Greenwood Valley Action Track for Selinsgrove native, Blane Heimbach. For most of the event, Neil Petock, Bloomsburg, had the field covered, until slower traffic came in to play in the final laps, giving Heimbach an opportunity to make the crucial pass for the win. Jim Callahan came in third, Brad McClelland, Westminster, MD, was fourth and Colby Womer, Mt. Pleasant Mills, was fifth. In the sixth position was Scott Tate, Middleburg, seventh was Jeff Furlong, Selinsgrove, and eighth was Steve Lenig, also from Selinsgrove. Andy DeHoff finished ninth and Eric Perchak, Hazelton, was tenth.
In the Rookie Micro Sprint Feature, Brett Arndt, Topton, held off Michael Ruttkamp of Wilton, CT. for the win. Ruttkamp, driving his usual steady race, took second while keeping Hazelton's Ross Perchak. Joel Thomas, Bloomsburg, was fourth, K.C. Smith, Reading, was fifth, and in the sixth slot was Phil Weinsteiger. Seventh went Chad Thomas, New Berlin, and eighth through tenth were Don Shipley, Trenton, NJ, A.J. Bast, Tower City, and Jesse Remensnyder, Mocanaqua.
Next Saturday's Show will be a cut above as a large group of garden tractor entries are expected from as far away as Waverly, NY. The Mini Sprints and 600 Micros will join them. Join dirt track race fans at The Greenwood Valley Action Track, located 3 1/2 miles east of Millville, just south of route 254. Gates will open at 3, warm-ups at 5:30 and racing will get under way at 6 with lots of racing and lots of family fun. See you at The Action Track.
