From Victory Lane at Greenwood Valley . . . . by Than Mitchell August 11, 1999
Brian Kishbaugh has been chasing the checkered flag for weeks. On Saturday night he caught and passed it, coming home the winner in the Regular Micro Sprint Feature at the Greenwood Valley Action Track. Kishbaugh was strong all night long as was virtually unchallenged in the Heat Race and Feature where he started from the pole position. Brian, who lives in nearby Nescopeck, does his own wrench work on the car.
Eric Heydenreich, Bloomsburg was second in one of his best performances since moving from the Rookies to the Regular Micro Sprints, and third was a charging Joe Bednarski, Wyoming. In the fourth slot was Colby Womer, Mt. Pleasant Mills, fifth David Utt, Catawissa, and sixth place went to Eric Perchak who drives to the track from Hazelton. Seventh through tenth place went to Rick Tanner, Watsontown, Brad McClelland, Westminster, MD, Brent Boyer and Jason Kemp, both of Bloomsburg.
Scott Lawrence, Conklin, NY, could not stop smiling as he accepted the checkered flag for his fourth Rookie Feature win of the year in the very competitive Rookie Micro Sprint field. Next week Lawrence gets his wish to race with the Regular Micros, a position that he has worked to gain all season long. Second to Lawrence was Eric Eckert, Bristol, third was Mike Pychika, and fourth, Scott Tate, Middleburg. In fifth position was Rick Morris, Catawissa, and Brian Wawroski, Bloomsburg, was sixth. The rest of the field was made up of Jerry Mack, Selinsgrove, Ross Perchak, Hazelton, Jason Wagner (celebrating his 21st birthday), and tenth went to Jay Horvath from the Allentown area.
The fast and wild Mini Sprints, sporting 1100cc power plants came with a six car group this week, making for exciting action. Dale Pitcher was first across the line, Greenwood Valley Action Track owner, Gerry Creveling, in a Gary King built chassis sporting a 600cc engine, and third was Greg Deets, Hazelton.
Garden tractor action was back, this time with four entries entered by the four Faus brothers from Rohrsburg. Action Track fans are looking forward to more tractors in the future. Get ready! Get set! Mow!
The great dirt track action continues at the Greenwood Valley Action Track, located 3 1/2 miles east of Millville on route 254. Gates open at 3:30 and warm-ups begin at 5:30 every Saturday right through October.
