Bull First Time Wingless 600 Winner; Skias Wins Rookie Race

Gingrich, Grube, Gruber also winners


Steve Bull started from the pole of the Wingless 600 Micro Sprint feature race presented by Hooiser Tire Mid Atlantic and took the win. It was not as easy as it sounds though. Bull showed the way early on a tricky speedway surface that seen the point leader Steve Whary get crossed up. Whary was in a spot to gain points as runner up in points Kenny Murray was in an early race accident. Bull had to hold off the defending champion Jason Swavely, a pair of last week's winners Austin Bishop (Linda's Speedway) and Chad Sandt (Hamlin Speedway) and Dustin Stoltzfus in his first Linda's Speedway run for the win. Barry Shearer had a good run in sixth while Steve Recchione, Craig Fox, Bruce Ginther, and Whary closed out the top ten. Heat race winners for the 600 Micro Sprints were Kenny Miller, Kenny Murray, and Jason Swavely. The consolation race was won by Brent Shearer.


Dave Williams led the first two laps of the RTS Chassis sponsored 270 Micro Sprint feature before his car slowed under yellow. Josh Schaffer took over the top spot for a lap before Scott Gingrich locked down the lead. Gingrich showed the way as the field got to lap traffic with Nick Skias and Brad Brown in pursuit. Gingrich was sideways on lap ten after contact with a lap car and Skias was ready to make his move into the top spot before a yellow flag flew. Gingrich continued to show the way after the yellow with challenges coming from Brad Brown. Brown couldn't get by Gingrich, who took the checkered flag for the win. Brown was second followed by Mike Skias in third. 18th and 19th place starters Brent Shearer and Jason Swavely rounded out the top five. Devin Harron crossed the line in sixth followed by Schaffer, Stone Keller, Mike Boyer, and Collin Ginther. Qualifying wins went to Scott Gingrich, Brad Brown, and Logan Diehl while Jason Swavely won the consolation.


Nick Skias has won many 270 Micro Sprint feature events at Linda's Speedway, but Friday night he marked off a new chapter when he won the rookie wingless 600 Micro Sprint. Skias led each lap, even after sliding high on the third circuit of the event in turn four, giving Mike Linderman a look at the top spot. Linderman made a run at Skias, except Skias came charging off the turn back into the race lead. Skias led the rest of the way to take the checkered flag. Mike Linderman followed him across the line with Steve Recchione, Tim Baurer, and Brooklyn Gable the top five. Heat race wins went to Skias and Linderman.


Dave Grube and Chase Gutshall waged a battle at the front of the Gutshall's Automotive 125 Micro Sprint feature race. Grube and Gutshall spent much of the race nose to tail with Brianna Gerhart  in chase for the win. Grube got caught up with a lap car on lap ten and Gutshall dove into the race lead. Grube was able to drive back into the race lead on the front stretch the next lap. Grube led the rest of the way holding off Gutshall for the win. Gerhart finished in third just in front of point championship counterpart Zach Hollinger. Kyler Heiney marked his best career Linda's Speedway run with a fifth. Tajae Adams and Chase Gutshall won heat races for the 125 Micro Sprints.


Rookie driver Madyson Pacheco led the West Side Auto Body Slingshot feature to the green flag Friday, but Ronnie Spitler moved into the race lead quickly. Kyle Gruber said after the race that sometimes you get lucky in racing and that's what happened to him after a lap 3 yellow when he had the outside line for the restart behind Spitler. Spitler led the field into turn one before Gruber made the winning move in turns 3&4. Once out front Gruber went unchallenged to a 2.008 second win over Dylan Hoch who started seventh. Cody Kline came out on top of a race long battle with BJ Antonio and Justin Thompson  for third through fifth. Brett Spitler, Ronnie Spitler, Sam Scicchitano, Mike Fogler, and Alex Yankowski were the top ten finishers. Heat race checkered flags went to Thompson and Pacheco.
