Honor Thy Father - Fab Four Race Report 6.13



Honor thy father; 2nd generation drivers Ferree, Bowser and Murdick victorious
Sanders runs down, passes and holds off Sportsman elite



Sarver, PA (June 15, 2014)  The rich 45+ year history of the Lernerville Speedway is full of second and now third generations drivers, but especially on Father’s Day weekend, it’s always special to see drivers roll into Sheetz Victory Lane to “honor thy father”.  Alex Ferree, Carl Bowser and Dave Murdick have all surpassed their fathers’ Lernerville win totals,  but each grew up at the race track looking up to their respective fathers both on and off the track.  Terry Bowser hasn’t driven for quite a few years now, Ed Ferree still races occasionally, but impressively Carl Murdick continues to race on a weekly basis as he has since the track opened in 1968!  Happy Father Day to all!  Mark Sanders’ father isn’t a name from Lernerville’s past, but Mark himself is a new father and there’s nothing wrong with giving yourself an early Father’s Day present!

Storylines off the track almost as exciting as wins for Bowser, Shingledecker, Miley and McPherson - Fab Four Race Report 6.6



Storylines off the track almost as exciting as wins for Bowser, Shingledecker, Miley and McPherson

Sarver, PA (June 8, 2014)  Usually the best storylines come from the races themselves, but that wasn’t the case this Friday Night.  Each feature winner had an extra incentive to win.  It started with Carl Bowser who won on the same night his sister Micheala graduated from Freeport High School.  Jeremiah Shingledecker will turn 37 years old this week, (the same number that is on the door panel of his race car), while Jared Miley had an extra $600 on the line as the Eracers Bonus Bucks driver of the night.  Finally, Corey McPherson drove the 20-lap feature win an engagement ring on a chain around his neck and dropped to one knee in Sheetz Victory Lane to propose to his girlfriend, now fiancé, Jennifer.  Congratulations to all, both on and off the track!
