KEITH WOODSON CLAIMS 2nd VICTORY OF 2005
HANOVER, PA, 6/25/05 -- "I'd like to thank lapped traffic for catching me up with (Jake) Murphy," an excited Keith Woodson exclaimed as he exited his Ken Brandt's Body Shop 600cc micro sprint and Trail-Way Speedway, Saturday night.
Woodson started the feature race in the 10th position and by the eighth lap was charging towards race leader Murphy to attempt to steal the lead. Lapped traffic provided Woodson enough room to pass Murphy. Once Murphy cleared the lapped cars he began to reel Woodson in, almost passing to regain the lead, but a caution involving Paul Hively forced the field to decide the finish with only three laps remaining.
Woodson as able to get a good restart and pulled far enough ahead of Murphy to take his second win of the 2005 racing season. Murphy was able to hang on to the second position coming across the line. Following Murphy was the points leader coming into tonight's race, Shawn Seifert in the third position, polesitter Aaron Spahr in fourth, and Shippensburg's Dwayne Gutshall rounding out the top five.
Completing the top ten was last week's winner, Jesse Snyder, Jim Campbell Jr., Sean Campbell, Timothy Gladfelter, and Ben Murphy.
Heat winners were Scott Glover Jr., Paul Hively and Jim Campbell Jr. Travis Willow was the consolation winner.
In the classic car division, Bill Brown Sr. grabbed his first win of the 2005 season at Trail-Way Speedway. Brown battled with Jamie Lloyd, who won two weeks ago in the first classic car race of the season.
Brown, who started in the 13th position, passed Lloyd on the 16th lap and became the lap leader. Brown held on to the lead claiming the 20-lap racing event.
Completing the top five were Lloyd, Kurt Welsh, Joe Snodgrass and Fred Cullum.
Bob Laugman picked up his second win of the 2005 season Saturday night in the 250cc micro sprint division. Laughman took the lead away from Dave Toomey on the second lap, but a hard charging Jim Still took the lead away on the fourth lap.
Still held onto the lead up until the last lap of the race. A caution brought out by Mike Deimler, caused a green/checkered finish. As they came to the final green, Still led followed by Laughman in second and Nik Gower in third. Gower attempted to pass Laughman and Still going into the second turn, but caught both of the cars, causing race leader Still to fall back several positions. Laughman maintained his position and sailed to the checkered flag. This is Laughman's fourth career victory.
Following Laughman across the line was Dave Hartlaub, Bradley Weber, the 2004 "250" micro sprint track champion Billy Laughman, and Craig Myers.
Round out the top ten were Eric Eckert, Mike Connors, Timmy McClelland, Jesse Hare, and Mike Midkiff.
Heat winners were Nik Gower, Dave Hartlaub and Charles French Jr. Jason Cunningham Jr. was the consolation winner.
In 4 cylinder starlite oval racing, Joe Racine picked up his fourth win in 2005. This win was his eighth career in the 4 cylinder class.
In the 6 cylinder division, Harry Shipe worked his was through the field to take his fifth win of the season.
In the starlite limited, Jeffrey Racine Jr. picked up a feature win. Racine took the lead away from Travis Leh on the third lap.
In scramble car action, Randy and Shawn Crunkilton both picked up feature wins. Both wins totaled four for each driver for the season. Shawn Crunkilton is now one race away from tying Brad Kress for the most career wins in the scamble car division. Brad has a total of 11 wins and Shawn has 10.
