Dave Kittey's Racing News

(6/17/15)...Unlike some sports the word RAIN is nasty for auto racing. For the fifth straight week the “R” word has given track promoters fits. Some tracks were able to get part of the show in while others got their gates opened only to have it pour as soon as they did. 2015 has not been a great season for most of these tracks. Lets all hope we get some good weather soon so the racing season can catch a break.

BEDFORD SPEEDWAY – Bedford was able to get a few heats in the before the skies unleashed wiping out the nights festivities. This week the ARDC Midgets make a visit. They will join the Super Late Models, Semi-Lates, Pure Stocks & 4 Cylinders.

DOG HOLLOW SPEEDWAY – Ten minutes before start time the clouds opened up with a torrential down pour flooding the infield and track. Dog Hollow had 32 Super Lates signed in for the Shawn McGarvey Memorial. Sunday was the raindate, but promoter Dan Savino decided to cancel it until this coming Friday. The Super Lates will be running for $3000 to win. Other divisions participating will be the 305 Sprints, Pure Stocks, Crate Late Models & 4 Cylinders.



Below are several recent victory lane video clips from Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway.

Greg Wilson Wins All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Race
at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway on June 6, 2015.

Greg Wilson Dominant at PPMS Saturday, June 6th

Greg Wilson was in the process of taming the field at the Monster Half Mile, but a lap 18 caution erased his eight-second advantage. The yellow may have allowed Wilson’s fellow competitors to catch up, but it certainly didn’t dash his hopes for victory.

Wilson pulled away once again on the restart and finished off his dominating performance picking up the All Star Circuit of Champions feature in front of a packed house at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway Saturday night.

It was the 23rd career win with the ASCoC for Wilson, a two-time points champion with the series. The Benton Ridge, OH resident took the lead from outside pole sitter Dale Blaney on lap seven and used the bottom groove of the speedway to check out on the field.

Once Wilson was standing beside his W20 sprinter in the victory lane the emotions started flowing.

“You get crabby when you don’t win, but this right here is why we do it,” Wilson said to ASCoC announcer Blake Anderson in victory lane. “I want to thank (PPMS) for having us. This is a fine race track.

“I also want to thank the fans for coming out. I appreciate them spending their hard-earned money to watch us put on a show and I hope they enjoyed it.”
