Norrie wins Mini Sprint Dash for Cash at Weedsport.
Williamson, NY - The fourth stop of The Lyons National Bank Mini Sprint Dash for Cash Series, Presented by Lessord's Chrysler Products, was at Cayuga County Fair Speedway on August 4th. For the fourth time, a different winner was crowned. Doug Norrie, of West Suffield, CT, took the Weedsport checkers in the 20-lap feature event. The race was sanctioned by Central New York Mini Sprints (CNYMS), Inc, and sponsored by Heluva Good Foods, Inc.
From his second starting spot, Mike Emhof of Sodus, NY, took the lead on lap one from pole sitter Bob Lynt (Buchanan, NY). Emhof was able to hold the top spot as Norrie moved up through the field to sit second. Norrie grabbed the lead on lap 12 as the two moved through lapped traffic. While the caution was out for a spin on lap 16, Emhof was black flagged for a presumed oil leak. When green flag racing resumed, Norrie held to lead and took the win, followed by Lynt, Bryan Howland (Auburn, NY), Lance O'Dell (Oneonta, NY), and Cory Sparks (Scotia, NY). Heat race winners were O'Dell, Norrie, and Howland.
As the race winner, Norrie also took home the Seymour Enterprises contingency prize. The Weld Wheels "Hard Chargers" were P.J. Peworchik (Binghamton, NY) and Barry Virts (Rose, NY), and the Wilwood "Brake of the Race" award went to Matt Norrie (West Suffield, CT). Duby Woodruff (Albany, NY) took home the Bicknell Racing Products gift certificate. Emhof won the previous Dash for Cash race at Weedsport, Howland grabbed the win at Fulton, and Jared Fink (Germantown, NY) was victorious at Canandaigua.
The Dash for Cash series finale will be held Saturday, August 31st, at Fulton Speedway. The event will be sponsored by Wayne Regional Orthopaedics, Williamson, NY.
