Gordon win his first 600
Its Holley again in the 270

Bo Gordon from Baltimore, MD. captured his first 600 win this year. The likable driver who has had his share of problems with his new machine, but Saturday nite it looked like Gordon is finally getting it dialed in. Gordon drew the pole by verture of the inverted start, and used that advantage. He outraced Eddie Rice to turn one and from there it was all Gordon. At the finish, it was Gordon by ten lengths over Rice. Drew Heistand came home third, while Alex Bright, and Dustin Shefield completed the top five. Sixth thru tenth were Adam Haney, Richard Gilmore, Dustin Foust, Kerry Foust, Kerry Schanz and Ron May. The heat was won by Gilmore.

In 270 action, it was Duncannon Pa's Mike Holley back in the winners circle. Holley, who has already won several features and has never been out of the top five all year used patience and was able to take the lead on lap 12 from early race leader Kelly Hall, although Rick Brehm would not make Holley's win an easy one for him. Brehm and Holley battled for much of the first half behind Hall was able to finally get around Hall on lap 17 and ran down Holley. A caution on lap 18 for his daughter B.J, Brehm when her mount came to a stop on the frontstrech once again setup another exciting finish. Brehm was able to pull alongside Holley going into turn three on the final lap, but had to settle for second. Hall held on for third, while Bo Gordon and John Baker completed the top five. Sixth thru tenth were Lin Bowie, John Kuhn, Micahel Dougas, B.J. Brehm, and Jessie Howell. The heat was won by B.J. Brehm.

In other action, it was Keith Armolt earning another Thunder car victory, while Ronnie Buck repeated in the Mini Stock class. The Thunder Front division winners were John Henry and Gary Guise.
