Tim George flexes his muscles @ Hialeah with a very satisfying Victory!
The USA Sprints made thier first ever visit to the famed Hialeah Speedway and "Tiny" Tim George # 1 proved that he too will be a force to be reckoned with on the pavement as he garnered his first ever Win on the hard stuff in Miami. David "Skeeter" Kelly's # 12 and Sean "Zippy" Namor's # 10n brought the USA Sprints to the line followed by Andy "Hammer Down"Kelly's # 11 and Mike "Hollywood" Schroeder's # 6.
Skeeter drove off of turn four to take command but immediately 2 cars got tangled off of turn 4. The cars of Shane Kriedler # 52 and Andy Kelly # 11 were damaged and were towed from the Track. The race was restarted and again Skeeter Kelly got the jump. He was followed by Sean Namor # 10n and Mike Schroder in the # 6. As the cars came off of turn 4 for lap # 2 Larry Gentsch # 63 hit the 4th turn wall and slid down the front straight-away with heavy damge to bring out caution 2.
Skeeter Kelly was still in control in the Staggs Tree Service # 12 as he took the green again off of turn 4. Just as the cars were starting to jockey for position the car # 24 of Bob "The Arrow" Parrow slowed in turn 2 to bring out the 3rd caution. The car # 12 was up to the task and powered off of turn 4 for the restart. This time he was pursued by Mike Schroeder # 6 and Tim George # 1. Kelly stayed out front when the lead cars came up on lap traffic on about lap 15.
As the cars were dicing back and forth Kelly slid high off of turn 2 allowing Tim George to slide by and take over the lead. He was now trailed by Kelly,Namor and Schroeder. RC Roper was in fifth but was pressured very heavily by young Rookie sensation Michael "Bones" Smith in the Smith's Auto # 9. Smith got by Roper's machine to crack the top 5 by lap 17. Up front George was starting to pull away but the real battle was for 2nd thru 4th. David hung on for 2nd followed by Namor and Schroeder.
Michael Smith garnered his first ever USA Sprints top 5 finish. This was also his first ever pavement race in any kind of race car as well. RC Roper struggled with motor problems to bring home 6th. He was chased by Scott Rocchio # 16,Bob Parrow,Larry Gentsch,Andy Kelly and Shane Kriedler.
