Biasi Takes First Hesston WinNewsPhoto

The sprints were in the spotlight, going extra laps for extra money and Nathan Gramley took the lead at the start from fellow front row starter Rodney Peters. Gramley was pulling away from the competition but Tommy Beaver wasn’t told that Gramley was headed for the finish line first. As Gramley continued to lead Beavers, it was on lap seven that Joe Biasi moved into second and began to reel in the leader. As the duo continued pull away Biasi continued to reel in the leader. The field encountered lapped traffic on lap 21 and Biasi went low while Gramley chose the high line, as they exited turn four it was the bottom that worked, as Biasi took the lead and then a caution flew. On the restart Gramley was able to take the lead back from Biasi, but he only maintained the top spot an additional lap, as he lost the handle and spun in turn two. This gave the lead back to Biasi who went on to record his first ever Hesston win. Craig Myers, Joe Zap, Beavers and Roger Irvine completed the top five. Heat wins went to Roger Irvine, Todd Spangler and Joe Biasi.
