The sprint cars also opened their season on Tuesday night going 15 laps and Kenny Gilmore again dominated winning all 6 segments on way to the opening night win. Mark Williams looking for an early season sweep ran good winning 4 segments, came home 2nd. Late entry Randy Haydt won 1 segment finishing 3rd. (who asked him to race?) Shane Hiester turned in 1 segment win, on lane 1, to score a nice 4th place run. Jim Levan scored a fifth place finish winning 1 segment, with steady 14s all night.

6th Sheldon Hiester, 7th Scott Bender, 8th Toby Reinhard, 9th Billy Decker, 10th Dennis Kershner.


The 2 divisions of racing finished around 9:10, good job to everyone for keeping everything moving along. Close action in the Cup  class as less than 1 lap seperated  2nd to 6th. Good to see Toby Reinhard making his initial starts in both classes and finishing 8th in sprints. Next week modifieds return on the 8-lane.
