Fab Four Mid-Season Championship Quick Results 6.21



Jack Sodeman Jr. dominates the Peoples TWP Sprint feature; locked into Silver Cup
Ferree and Shingledecker notch first wins of 2013 and score Firecracker & Kodiak Memorial provisionals
Corey McPherson drives away with his fourth Pic-A-Part Sportsman feature of the season

Sarver, PA (June 21, 2013) Jack Sodeman Jr. had a triumphant reversal of fortune Friday Night by winning the Peoples TWP DIRTcar Sprints Mid-Season Championship just a week after a nasty flip ended his night early and junked the chassis.  Behind the wheel of a new XXX Chassis, Sodeman led all 25 laps of a caution-free feature.  Sodeman’s Mid-Season Championship locks him into the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup XXII Twin 30s in July.  Budweiser Points leader Mat Williamson started on the outside pole of the Diehl Mods feature, but Jeremiah Shingledecker roared from fourth on the grid, passed Williamson on a mid-race restart and then drove to his first feature win of the season.  Alex Ferree started on the pole to the Precise Late Model A-Main and never looked back on the way to his first feature win of the season and in doing so secured a starting position in next Saturday Night’s Firecracker 100 A-Main.  Corey McPherson continued his domination of the Pic-A-Part Sportsman division with his fourth win in seven races, but had to fight off a spirited charge from Mike Miller mid-race to do so.  And now nothing remains between now and the 7th Annual Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com except five grueling days waiting for Thursday and dozens of the best Late Model drivers in the country to roll into Sarvertown for the three-night megashow!
