SUNDAY "TRIPLEHEADER" AT MOUNT LAWN; ROBERTSON, PARISH, FITZPATRICK #1 AT NEW CASTLE, RAIN TAKES MORRIS
The battle for the 2007 Adam Petty Cup continues this Sunday afternoon at Mount Lawn Speedway in New Castle, Ind. as the Regional, Kenyon and Indiana Ford Focus Midget series return to the 3/10-mile paved oval for another "tripleheader."
Switching from Wednesdays to Sundays for August 26 and September 16 programs, the three series are again slated for 30-lap features.
James Robertson of Indianapolis, Ind. has a 22-point lead over Robby Parish in the "Wednesday Night Thunder" standings for the Adam Petty Cup. A total of 27 points are available in each "tripleheader" although neither driver competes in all three series. Kyle Hamilton, who competes only in the Kenyon Midgets, is third, only two points behind Parish.
Robertson continues to lead the Regional Midget points after winning last Wednesday's 30-lapper at Mount Lawn in his Executive Homes/Robertson Drywall Beast/Pink Ford. Robertson led all 30 laps to beat Alex Pruett, Dakoda Armstrong, Zach Schiff and Travis Young.
Parish, of Knightstown, Ind., earned a hard-fought victory in last Wednesday's Ford Focus 30-lapper, losing the lead to Andy Nock on lap 29, then regaining it on the final lap to put his Executive Homes/Robertson Drywall Beast in victory lane. Nock finished second ahead of Eric Fehrman, Steven Mathews and Tyler Irwin. Fehrman and Irwin also led the race, which saw five lead changes! Chett Gehrke, who still leads the series standings, finished 11th.
Blake Fitzpatrick of Terre Haute, Ind. paced all 30 laps to win Wednesday's Kenyon feature in his Fitzpatrick Funeral Home/Forsythe Racing Yamaha. Ryan Miller, Caleb Armstrong, Drew Charlson and Jacob Thompson completed the "top-five" as point leader Kyle Hamilton took sixth.
Rain forced cancellation of last Saturday night's regional "tripleheader" at Grundy County Speedway in Morris, Ill.
