Teams and fans were equally thrilled as the Path Valley sprints went topless for the next to last show of the season Friday night.
Winners included first timer this season Todd Spangler who survived and thrived in the wingless 305 Sprints feature. Donnie Hendershot won in Sidewinders, Heath Hehnly won the 600 Sprints feature and the 270 Sprints win went to Justin Grosz. In local stock cars the Mini Stock win went to Tim Burkholder and Gary Dehart won in Thunder Cars, along with placing second in Mini Stocks.
The final race of the season is next Friday night with the three regular classes and the mini stocks off, along with the Central PA Legends and the V-8 Super Stocks. The season has concluded for the Mini Stocks, 305 Sprints, and 1000cc Sidewinders.
Tickets for the Nov. 17 Rewards Banquet are now available at the track.
The 305 Sprints opened with a spectacular crash as Mike Freet got sideways out of turn two and Craig Laudermilch hit him and bounced completely over at least twice. On the restart Todd Spangler passed Jim Kennedy for the lead and raced away to his first win at Path Valley this season. The front five were Spangler, Von McGee, Kennedy, Mike Freet and Mile Zielonis.
