Fitz wins Path Valley in 2nd appearanceNewsPhoto

Richie Fitz, of Crystal Spring, PA, made the jump from 600cc Micro Sprints to 305 Sprints in 2006. In only his second start at Path Valley this year, Fitz put his sprinter in victory lane. Early on it appeared that Chad Myers would be tough to beat, as he lead until he lost his right front tire entering turn one of lap five. That bad break for Myers was all the break Fitz needed, as he lead the field from that point on, winning by six car lengths. Mike Freet, Randy Kaylor, and Wes Zimmerman finished second through fourth, respectively, while George Riden came from thirteenth to finish fifth. Fitz and Myers were also the heat winners.
