Great Action During Speedrome Weekend: Brian Canter, Brayde Harper, Tony Holden Achieve Victory to Launch Month
Tuesday August 7, 2012
From August 3 & 4, 2012
A Canter Wins Saturday Roadrunner Main
Heading into this evening questions were abound. Could Lee Schwartz win 3-in-a-row? Would leader Brian Canter continue his point gathering rampage? Or would the division known for surprises provide one more? Heat one saw James Curry best over Henry McDougalle Jr and Brian Canter. The second heat had Eddie Snapp Jr win in his first season start over Nate Canter and Jordan McIntosh. Nate would position himself with an early advantage and for a time looked like a family 1-2 result with dad in second. But some intense racing from fellow title contenders relegated Brian to fifth. Spring Fling co-champion Herbie Conrad and 2011 titlist Aaron Smay tried to derail the young leader but didn’t make it happen. Nate posted his second career win of this his rookie campaign. The son now has more victories in this chase season than his father.
Harper Back in Junior Faskart Hollowed Ground
The Circle City Pyrotechnics Junior Faskarts had their Chase for the Cup championship standings continue to tighten up on this Friday evening. With no former class kings in the field, the racers ages 7-15 all eye the history books. Heat one saw reigning rookie-of-the-year Caitlyn Wolfe victorious over Levei Hargraves and Dustin Kares. The second heat had hard-charging James Rybolt take the win over Cameron Wolfe and Kimmie Greig. The feature would then determine the night’s ending mood for teams. A major moment in the event came on the second circuit when rare mechanical woes sent point leader Greig to the infield. Brayde Harper moved to the front and never looked back to garner his 3rd victory of the year. Rybolt was the runner-up with Cameron Wolfe finishing third.
Former Track Champ Holden Wins in the INEX Legends
Bad luck and unfortunate circumstances have hampered Tony Holden’s efforts to enter victory lane this season. The 2008 INEX Speedrome king would make those recent visions go away on Friday August 3rd. Tony “the tiger” weaved through the jungle of challengers to hoist both program checkered flags. The Greenfield, Indiana driver won the preliminary over point leader Tyler Payne and veteran Midwest winner John Robbins. The 25-lap main event had Tony once again tasting the milk besting Joe Thurman and Robbins. Rounding out the top five finishers were Marty Griffin and Payne. There are just 4 title contests remaining. The Legends are on track the next four Friday’s.
