Stewart, OH — (July 20, 2012) — Washington, WV driver Greg Mitchell claimed his first-ever 410 sprint feature over Josh Davis and Jimmy Stinson Friday at Skyline Speedway.
A moment of silence was held in memory of Sarah Bond, wife of longtime Ohio Valley racing legend Ronnie Bond and mother of Larry and Andy Bond, multi-time late model and modified champions. Sarah herself was a pretty good racer back in the powder puff days, winning many races before finally hanging up the helmet. Many racers, led by the racing Roush family collected $800 for the Bond family. Skyline Speedway on behalf of the Bond family would like to thank all the fans who contributed to this cause.
Josh McGuire has won at Skyline all but four times he has made the trip from his ‘Ole Kentucky Home’. Two times he broke, and two other times he suffered close defeats. Friday night (July 20) McGuire was on top of his game.
McGuire’s US Steel #41 blistered the Skyline Speedway track record with a resounding 12:04 clocking, eclipsing the eight-year old record of 12:18 set by John Brown back in 2004. McGuire narrowly missed a clean sweep with a second place finish to Zach Dohm in the fast car dash (dedicated to the late Sarah Bond). 21 of the 31 cars signed in for the evening set times in the 12 second bracket, compliments of a super-fast race track.
