Laudermilch Wins First in Path Valley Sprints

Craig Laudermilch raced to his first win ever in 305 Sprints Friday night at the Path Valley Speedway Park.

Laudermilch said in victory lane, “Now that the pressure is off and I have my first win I can have fun racing.”

Laudermilch dashed from his pole start with Todd Spangler right behind him but, by lap 7, Laudermilch was using lapped cars to protect his lead. The only caution came on lap 14 when Mike Freet bounced off the turn three wall and at the restart it was again Laudermilch in the lead with Spangler close behind. On the final lap Wes Zimmerman eased past Spangler but Laudermilch still won the race for his first win ever. The front five were Laudermilch, Zimmerman, Spangler, Mike Heckman and Reed Thompson and the heat winners were Laudermilch and Freet.
