GREG COVERDALE UPS CAREER URC WIN TOTAL TO 36 AT DRUMMONDVILLE CANADA
DRUMMONDVILLE, CANADA . . . . . . . . Greg Coverdale of Milford, DE was just one of five different race leaders Saturday night in URC competition at the Drummondville Speedway in Canada. Fortunately for Coverdale, he was the last and final leader of the twenty-five lap feature to score his fifth URC win of the season and thirty-sixth career win under the URC banner.
URC heat race winners were Fred Kennedy, Billy Ellis and Jeremy Trout, increasing the heat race winners list of 1999 to twenty-seven different drivers.
In the twenty-five lap BAR'S Leaks sprint feature, Billy Ellis set the pace for the first five laps with Kramer Williamson taking the lead on lap six. One lap later, Ellis was again in command with Williamson regaining the top spot on laps eight and nine.
Jeremy Trout moved into the heat of battle to take the lead on lap 10, but it was quickly becomming a Coverdale show as he took the lead on lap thirteen.
Along came Dave McGough and on lap nineteen, he took the top spot, however, his stay on top was short lived as Coverdale rebounded to take the lead on lap twenty.
Through the final five laps, McGough made several runs at Coverdale for the win, but ran short of time and settled for the runner-up spot. Finishing third was Billy Ellis with Chris Coyle fourth and Danny Massey fifth.
FEATURE FINISH: Greg Coverdale, Dave McGough, Billy Ellis, Chris Coyle, Danny Massey, Scott Pursell, Todd Wise, Midge Miller, Wayne Patterson, Tim Higgins, Mike Haggenbottom, Fred Kennedy, Becca Anderson, Glen Clarke, Jeremy Trout, Sean Michael, Kramer Williamson, Mike Stoer, Jon Eldreth, Fran Hogue, Brian Seidel, John Barnett, Dave Gable.
