Sprint Sides-  Seemed like a wingless night was in the works as multiple wings came apart during the night.  Lucky for us Randy stayed downstairs and got to relive last years track repair job by me.  Thanks Jody for bringing that up again.  Once again James shows continued improvement with many consistent runs.  Tony Zappacosta had a strong car and nearly pulled out a couple of segment wins on his way to a fine sixth place showing in the feature.  18 racers were on hand as Sprints continues to be a popular event.
