Silver Cup Twins 30s from the Local Perspective

ULMS Lates & UEMS Mods join Sportsman this Friday, July 20

 

Sarver, PA (July 19, 2012) 2010 Lernerville Speedway/Budweiser Track Champion Danny Holtgraver continues to skyrocket into super stardom in the 410 sprint world with a thrilling run from 19th to second in the first of the Silver Cup Twin 30s.  Despite a plethora of cautions, Holtgraver did not ascend to the front by attrition!  In fact, in one straightaway, between the bottom of turn two and the entrance to turn three, Holtgraver passed 24 seasons worth of World of Outlaws Champions and over 700 wins in Steve Kinser, Donny Schatz and Jason Sides.  Then on the last lap, using the same move from the same groove, Holtgraver rocketed past his mentor & friend Tim Shaffer (The Defending Silver Cup Champion) to finish second to A-Main #1 and eventual overall Silver Cup Champion Craig Dollansky.

Rob Shook shakes off Defending Champ to win Sportsman feature

 

Sarver, PA (July 6, 2012) Despite a hot, miserable week of weather, the Action Track prep crew did an amazing job providing a fast, tacky race surface Friday night and the action was fast & furious all night long!  The night got off to a rough start during heat races as Bob Warren rolled over his #96B Modified exiting turn four and turned downright scary as Brian Steinman took a wild ride in turn four, backing his #24S Sprinter into the wall at full speed, crushing the tail tank and igniting a fire.  The Lernerville Rescue Squad responded quickly and professionally to extricate Brian from the car. He was airlifted to a regional hospital for further evaluation. Please keep Brian and his family in your thoughts and prayers!
