Tyler Bear raced to the first win of his career in 305 Sprints Friday night at Path Valley Speedway Park.
Tyler Bear took the lead from Craig Laudermilch on the first lap of the 305 Sprints feature and, with Cowboy Jim Kennedy right behind him, stretched his lead to a full turn by lap seven. The day before was Kennedy’s 74th birthday. By lap eight lapped cars became a factor and Bear weaved a course among them to take his first win ever in the 305 class. These cars return to Path Valley in two weeks for a rematch. The front five finishers were Bear, Kennedy, Laudermilch, Todd Spangler, and George Riden. Riden and Jason Brandt won the heat races.
