Path Valley ends season Wingless/Topless NewsPhoto


Posted 1 week late due to my wifes surgery

With many competitors asking for a wingless show for sprint cars the management of Path Valley Speedway listened and ran a wingless show for all of their sprint divisions, along with “topless” late models and a “Run What You Brung” 4-Cylinder race. Heavy rains on Saturday pushed the show back to Sunday afternoon, which changed things from the normally moist/tacky evening surface to the dry/slick daytime surface.

Todd Spangler looked like he would win the wingless PA 305 Sprint feature for the second year in a row. But, near halfway Von McGee began pressuring Spangler for the top spot. For five or six laps they kept swapping the lead back and forth. McGee made several passes, but couldn’t keep Spangler behind him. Finally McGee found the right combination and made the winning pass. Spangler held on to second and was followed by “Cowboy” Jim Kennedy, Craig Laudermilch, and Mike Freet.

PA 305 Sprint: Von McGee(1/2), Todd Spangler(33T), Jim Kennedy(7), Craig Laudermilch(44), Mike Freet(11), Ben Naugle(24/7)
