Sarver, PA — (July 5, 2012) — Rod George broke a two year drought in a fast & furious Ti22 Sprint feature Friday night at Lernerville Speedway over early leader Jack Sodeman, Jr.

Brian Steinman took a hard ride backwards into the turn three wall in Ti22 Sprint heat competition and had to be extricated from the car and flown to a regional hospital for further evaluation. He was awake and alert upon being removed from the car. Thoughts and prayers to a full and speedy recover. And we’d be remiss not to say thanks to the brave men & women on the Lernerville Rescue Squad that did an excellent and professional job fighting the flames and taking every precaution necessary to remove Brian safely from his car!
