Ellerman wins at Path Valley.NewsPhoto


The PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint feature saw eleven drivers take the green flag and Alex Schanz set the early pace from his second place starting spot. Scott Ellerman started fourth and was into second on the second lap and began to close in on Schanz. Ellerman followed Schanz closely for several laps until he found an opening down low exiting turn two. The two leaders ran side-by-side down the backstretch and Ellerman took control entering turn three. The twenty lap event ran non-stop and Ellerman stretched his lead to nearly half of a lap by the time the checkered flag waved. Schanz remained in second and was followed across the line by Nathan Gramley, Marcus Defreitas, and Mark Watkins. The heat race winners were Schanz and Gramley.
