FRANKLIN, Pa. – Brandon Spithaler was back in his own Shawgo Real Estate, LLC 410 Sprint Car due to an opening in the schedule for his touring series. He took maximum advantage, dominating the thirty-lap feature and collecting $3,000 in the process.
“It’s been a while since I’ve been here and we’re one for one,” Spithaler said. “Riding around in fifth I was concerned. I was riding around and I found a way to get around better than the other guys and it worked. I was running high, and then I started to come down off four.”
Jeremy Weaver started on the pole for the twenty-five lapper, with defending champion, Brandon Matus, by his side.
Weaver sailed off with the early lead, chased by Brandon Matus, Carl Bowser, Jack Sodeman, and Spithaler. Spitahler came to life as the race neared the midpoint, picking off Bowser, Sodeman, and Matus on successive laps.
Coming through turn four to complete lap fourteen, Weaver got out too far, leaving the door open for Spithaler. Matus tried to get through, too, but he could not make the pass. As Spithaler drew away from them, Weaver and Matus put forth a good battle for second.
Spithaler crossed the line in first, with Weaver second for what was his best career 410 Sprint Car finish. Brandon Matus, Bowser, and Sodeman completed the top five.
Jeremiah Shingledecker earned the win in the Donovan & Bauer Auto Group 358 Modifieds.
The 4 Your Car Connection Mini Stocks feature win went to Levi Maskal, with Thomas Warburton taking the victory in the PA Thunder on the Dirt Vintage Modifieds.
Dylan Cecce was victorious in the Penn Ohio Pro Stocks/Hovis Auto & Truck Supply King of the Hill.
