Pittsburgh, PA - April 10, 2010 - Imperial PA's Mike Johnson ended a long dry spell
and picked up the win in the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic DIRTcar Super Late Model
feature. The win was his first since August 6 2006. Mike Basich and Mike Davis brought
the field down for the green but the yellow came out quickly as Mike Basich and
Lynn Geisler tangled in turns one and two, ending Geisler's night. On the restart,
Jason Rider grabbed the lead, and led the first four laps before his motor blew,
 bringing out the caution. On the restart, heat winner Keith Barbara grabbed the
 lead, but unfortunately for him, it was determined that he had jumped the start,
so he was to be docked two spots, and 5th starting Mike Johnson was moved into first
with Mike Basich in second and Barbara in third. So on the next restart; it was
Johnson, with Barbara getting by Basich. Meanwhile last week's one and two finishers
Jared Miley and Steve Baker were moving up thru the field from 12th and 11th spots
and had moved into third and fourth. Johnson was out in front now with Barbara and
Miley battling for second, and Baker starting to reel them in from fourth. Another
yellow came out on lap 16, and bunched the field up one last time. On the restart
Johnson was back out front, and Miley and Baker overhauled Barbara to move into
second and third. And the trio pulled away from the rest of the field at that point.
At the finish, it was Johnson with a well deserved win followed by Miley, Baker,
 Barbara, Ben Miley, Daryl Charlier, Jim Stephans, Mike Davis, Tony Musolino (from
the tail), and John Mollick . Keith Barbara won the first heat while John Mollick
won the second. Barbara was turning laps below the track record, with the fastest
being 18.151.


In the Brougher's Machine Shop Fastrak Late Models, Wexford PA's Mike Pegher Jr.,
grabbed his second win in a row in dramatic fashion.  Pegher, who started the event
17th after breaking a wheel while leading his heat, charged thru the field to take
the lead on lap 13 and win going away. Outside front row starter Dan Karalagas grabbed
the lead at the start with Josh Holtgraver right behind in second. The pair pulled
away, while Pegher made his way thru the field. He picked off cars in rapid succession,
and got by both Karalagas and Holtgraver in one sweeping move. From that point on,
the race was all Pegher's. Holtgraver ended up second, while Karalagas had dropped
out of the event on lap 16. Beau Glemba made his first start of the season to finish
third followed by Rick Meglaye, Mark Moats Jr., Chad McClellan, Dan Angelicchio,
 Dennis Niederriter (from 19th). Rocky Kugel and Bryant Hank. Chad McClellan and
 Mark Moats Jr. picked up the heats.

The Miley RV Service Center UMP Modifieds saw Mars PA's Carl McKinney picked up
his first win ever at PPMS. McKinney grabbed the lead on lap 1 from his outside
front row starting spot and led every lap. Kari Gasser had her best run so far this
season finishing second followed by Mike Davis, Daryl Charlier, Vince Laboon, Kevin
Miller, Chris Basich, J.E. Stalder, Clayton Kennedy, and Tom Martineck. The heats
saw J.E. Stalder and Daryl Charlier grab wins.

Bob Schwartzmiller, Robinson Township, PA grabbed his first win of 2010 in the Sunoco
Race Fuels DIRTcar Cadets. Schwartzmiller grabbed the lead on lap 3 from early leader
Dave Slade and held off a strong challenge from Nick Kocuba (who dropped out on
lap 10) to pick up the victory. Jake Simmons was second followed by Craig Koteles,
Pat Weldon, Greg McManus, Joe Koteles, Mike Mohn, Bill Robertson, Jim Ball, and
Kocuba. The heats fell to Pat Weldon and Jake Simmons.

Eric Goldberg won his first win of the season in the Miley BP Car Wash DIRTcar Hobby
Stocks. The Pittsburgh PA driver grabbed the lead on lap one and led the rest of
 the way. Gary Koteles challenged but came up short to finish second followed by
 Brian Huchko, Robby Torrens, Edward Wiser and Ricky Steigerwald.

The Imperial Heights Garage DIRTcar Young Guns saw Carnegie PA's Daniel White pick
up his first win of the season over Trevor Gombach, Tyler Atkinson, Alec Broniszewski,
Joe Gombach III and Hannah Ramsey.
