April 17, 1999 From Victory Lane at Greenwood Valley . . . .By Than Mitchell
A cold northwest wind and the threat of rain made Saturday afternoon and evening uncomfortable, but The Action Track's usual good fortune held and the Show ran as scheduled, producing some hot competition.
In the Micro Sprint Feature, pole sitter, Brent Boyer, who has a first and a third already this season, led the early laps. Boyer, from nearby Bloomsburg, looked like a winner until veteran Joe Bednarski, Plymouth, took advantage of slower traffic and slid into first. Holding onto the lead during a long green flag run, Bednarski notched his first Feature win of the year.
Boyer held on to second and was chased under the checkered flag by Jason Kemp, Bloomsburg. Fourth went to Justin Barger, Cortland, NY, then came Eric Perchak, Hazelton; Jeff Furlong, Selinsgrove; Nick Lannan, Montoursville; Colby Womer, Mt. Pleasant Mills; Jeff Rhine, and Jake Park, Rome, NY.
Eric Heydenreich another Bloomsburg hotshoe, captured his second win of the season, the first coming last week. Scott Lawrence of Conklin, NY, chased Heydenreich throughout the race and came home second. Third place went to Mike Keppner, Bechtelsville, followed by Tom Michalesko, Freeland; Shannon Stahl; Jerry Mack, Selinsgrove; Mike Andrews; Nathan Blum; Paul Asay, Ithaca NY, and Richard Sheppard in tenth spot.
Gates open at 3:30 and warm-ups get underway at 5:30. The Greenwood Valley Action Track is located 3 miles east of Millville just off route 254. With two snack bars, comfortable grandstands, and great racing, there is no better way for a family of race fans to spend a late Saturday afternoon. Join the dirt track action at The Action Track.
