Versatile Bitner Competes in 410 and 305 Ranks


Mr. Twister Mark Bitner headed to New Egypt Speedway last week with his 410-sprint car in tow.  Bitner who was returning to New Egypt after the initial attempt at the Jersey Rush was rained out started 7th in his heat race and finished in the same position. 


Bitner then started in the 13th position for the 25-lap main event paying $5,000 to win.  Bitner moved up multiple positions and was battling with Steve Buckwalter when the drive to the power steering pump and fuel pump broke sending the 15 to the sideline for the remainder of the event.


Bitner was back in action on Saturday night with the Brian Nixon owned #202 305 sprint car headed to Bridgeport Speedway.  Bitner who has multiple wins at the large 5/8-mile facility started 2nd in his heat race and won his heat race.  Bitner then started in the 5th position for the feature event.  Bitner battled up to the 3rd position but ultimately lost the battle with Austin Bishop finishing in the 4th position


This weekend Bitner and the team will head to Selinsgrove Speedway to compete with the Capitol Renegade United Racing Club. 


Bitner would like to thank his sponsors for their continued support though the 2017 season.  Bitner knows that none of this would be possible without the help of his crew and his sponsors. Bitner would like to thank Bitner Automotive, Fall Proof Systems Inc., John Benko, Stida Insurance, Keizer Wheels, Simpson, Total Seal Piston Rings, Wilwood Brakes, Mach 1 Chassis, 717 Innovations and Capital K9 for all of their support.
