October 23, 1999 From Victory Lane at Greenwood Valley . . . . by Than Mitchell
Jeff Furlong, driving for Chad Fritz and family, owners of East Coast Motor Sports, Rt. 61 Stonington, captured another late season checkered flag at The Greenwood Valley Action Track on Saturday night. Furlong, Selinsgrove, battled with Alan Krimes for the top spot until Krimes' engine let go on the front straight. Heath Hehnly, Adamstown, last week's feature winner, tried to get around Furlong, before settling for second. Third across the finish line was Kevin Stolz and fourth was Eric Heydenreich, both from Bloomsburg while fifth went to Rick Tanner, Watsontown. The sixth spot was nailed down by Steve Lenig, Selinsgrove, seventh by Eric Eckert, Bristol, and Frank Jarkeiwicz, Leroy, NY, was eighth. Finally, in the top ten were Skeetz Hockenbrock, Paxinos, and Dave Falini.
Chad Thomas, New Berlin, picked up another Rookie Micro Feature win at The Action Track. Brian Wawroski, Bloomsburg, managed a close second place finish while Eric Eckert, running in both Rookie and Regular Micro Sprints Features, crossed the line in third. Fourth was Joey Finan, Milton, fifth, Jason Talley, and sixth was Lee Benjamin, Berwick. The final four in the top ten were Brett Arndt, Jason Wagner, Chad Phillips, and Matt Ruttcamp, who came all the way to the track from Wilton, CT to compete at The Action Track.
Next Saturday will the '99 Racing Season finale at The Greenwood Valley Action Track. Weather permitting, and at The Action Track it usually does, gates will open at 2, warm-ups at 4:30 and racing at 5. Dress warmly, eat at the track at either of two fine snack bars, and watch the action. Join us at The Greenwood Valley Action Track, located 3 1/2 miles east of Millville just off route 254, for the final race at the fifth mile clay oval track.
