Greenwood Valley Action Track August 1, 1998 From the Scorer's Stand by Cindy Creveling
The third time is the charm, as far as Troy Whitesell is concerned. After laying claim to the pole position each of the past three weeks, but being unable to convert the good starting position into a win, Whitesell finally brought his Sunnyhill Farms sponsored King car home first Saturday night in the Regular Micro Sprint Feature at the Action Track.
Yellow flags repeatedly bunched up the field, but no one was able to make a pass, as Whitesell led from green to checker.
Brent Boyer, Colby Womer and Joe Bednarski were left to battle for second, third, and fourth. Eric Perchak slipped by a few cars, crossing the line behind Bednarski with David Utt in his draft taking sixth.
Blane Heimbach, the newcomer to the Regulars finished seventh ahead of the ChemGreen sponsored #1Q driven by Jeff Furlong, followed by Kevin Nolf and the #9L, Nye's Body Shop car, driven by Steve Lenig.
For newcomer George Nardelli, the first time was the charm. Nardelli came home first in the Rookie Micro Sprint Feature at the Action Track. After winning his heat from the last starting spot, Nardelli continued his winning way by repeating in the feature. Eric Heydenreich, piloting a new car, came home second and Jake Park settled for third. Crossing the line behind them were Chad Thomas, Scott Miller, Mike Kishbaugh, Dan Erdie, Rick Morris, Ashley Parlett, another newcomer to the Action Track, and Jerry Mack.
