Westfall Wins Ohio vs. Michigan Shootout at Waynesfield

From WMP

Summer doesn’t officially start until Monday, but the weather was already hot and humid, while the action on the racetrack was even hotter Saturday night when the Lane Automotive Michigan Traditional Sprints invaded Waynesfield Raceway Park to take on the Lee’s Hydraulics Non Wing Sprints in what has is an annual Ohio vs. Michigan Shootout.

The Ohio vs. Michigan Shootout featuring the Lane Automotive Michigan Traditional Sprints taking on the Lees Hydraulic non wing Sprints saw a very special entrant in the A Main as racing legend Jack Hewitt took lucky fan Justin Lobdell for the ride of a lifetime, starting 21st in the back seat of Jack’s specially prepared 2 seat sprint car. When the green flag fell it was Leipsic, Ohio’s Mike Brecht in the yellow #8 taking off in the lead from his starting spot on the pole. The racing was hot and heavy battling throughout the pack, but Pleasant Hill, Ohio’s Matt Westfall made his presence known, charging from his sixth place starting spot to second, setting his sights on race leader Brecht. As the 25 lap feature neared the halfway point, Westfall made his move taking the lead from Brecht and setting sail, until lap 15, as the #31 of Chuck Wilson found himself facing the wrong way on the backstretch, bringing out the yellow flag. When racing resumed, Matt Westfall once again showed his mastery of the high banks at Waynesfield taking off and leaving the field. Meanwhile, the battle for second stayed hot throughout the waning laps between Brecht, Thomas Messeraul in the Hazen #57, #5j Joss Moffatt, and #41 Steve Ott. In the end it was Westfall grabbing the win over Moffatt, Brecht, Ott and Messeraul. Heat races were won by Messeraul, Ott, Westfall and Moffatt. B Mains were won by Jamie Miller and Mike Galajda
