From Victory Lane At Greenwood Valley . . . . by Than Mitchell
Randy West made the drive from Boyertown worth the effort, once more, as he tallied his second Micro Sprint Feature win of the young season at the Greenwood Valley Action Track. Two weeks ago West took the millennium's first victory at the Action Track in relatively easy fashion. Rain and snow took the Feature last week, leaving West and the rest of Greenwood Valley's contingent of competitors to wait for the rematch. Skeetz Hockenbrock, Paxinos, seemed to be catching the leader as the end drew near, but time ran out. Third was Jason Kemp, Bloomsburg, followed by David Utt, Catawissa, and Jeff Furlong from Selinsgrove. The sixth place went to Defending Track Champion, Joe Bednarski of Wyoming, while Brian Kishbaugh, Nescopeck, managed a seventh place finish. Blane Heimbach was eighth and ninth and tenth places went to Jeff Bacha and Eric Eckert.
A pitched battle between Bloomsburg's Brian Wawroski and the SAM Racing Group's Scott Tate, highlighted the Action Track's Rookie Micro Sprint Feature. Tate crossed the finish line first, but the Middleburg hot-shoe was penalized one position by Action Track officials giving the victory to Wawroski. Third in line was Joey Finan, Milton, fourth, Lee Benjamin of Berwick, fifth was Scott Miller, and sixth place was earned by Brett Arndt, Topton. In the seventh place was Mike Ruttcamp, Tipton, CT., eighth was Jim Schleig, Danville, ninth, Dillon Stein, and tenth, A.J. Bast, Tower City.
A couple of 600cc Micro Sprints were on hand, and in the feature race Jared Ferri beat New York State's Wade Dates to the finish line.
Next week gates will open at 3:00, warm-ups at 5:30, and racing at 6:00. Bring the whole family, eat at the snack bars, and spend an enjoyable night of hard racing on the clay oval at the Greenwood Valley Action Track.
