Weekend Double for Franek

Davie Franek and the Franek Auto Sales, Escape RV team headed to Selinsgrove Friday night to race their 410 in the Ray Tilley Classic and then compete on Saturday night for the Patriot Sprint Car stop at the Selinsgrove Speedway.

On Friday night Franek and the 28f team were one of 20 sprint cars to sign into the pit area.  Franek started and finished in the 5th position for heat race #2 advancing to the feature event.  Franek then started in the 14th position for the 30-lap feature event and brought home a 15-place finish pulling off on lap 13.

On Saturday night Franek and the 28f team were back at Selinsgrove, this time with the 360-car looking to take home the top prize for the Patriots Sprint Car tour.  Franek timed in the 7th position out of 29 cars that were signed into the pit area.  Franek started on the outside row of heat 1 and finished in the 3rd position advancing to the 25-lap feature event. 

For the feature event, Franek started in the 7th position and was inside the top 5 but lap 12.  With half way to go Franek was shown in the 4th position and took over the 3rd position from Jared Zimbardi on lap 18.  Franek ran out of laps before he could mount a charge on the 29 of Jason Shultz or race winner Nate Snyder.  Franek finished just under a second behind the leaders. 

Franek will now head back to Big Diamond Speedway on Friday night to compete with the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club and again on Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway.  Franek will look to build on his points lead this weekend at both the United Racing Club and the Selinsgrove Speedway.
