From Lernerville Speedway

Sarver, PA (June 4, 2010) Former Track and All Star Champion Dale Blaney dominated the 30-lap O’Reilly All Star Circuit of Champion Sprint feature, leading wire-to-wire to win his second race of 2010 at Lernerville Speedway. But despite leading every lap, Blaney had to hold off a late and furious charge by Former Track Champion and Defending All Star Champion Timmy Shaffer. Danny Holtgraver continues to impress at the Action Track by finishing third to two of Lernerville’s finest exports!

Starting alongside Holtgraver on the front row, Blaney jumped out to a quick lead and quickly reeled in lapped traffic. The lapped traffic didn’t seem to slow Blaney down, but as the laps clicked off, Shaffer was just a little bit better navigated the slower cars and pulled even twice in the closing laps, but could not complete a pass for the lead.

Blaney, carrying the Ti22 colors, captured his second Lernerville Speedway feature in three weeks, this time to the tune of $5,000! Shaffer finished second.

Smack dab in the middle of his breakout season, Danny Holtgraver proved once and for all tonight that he’s not just a future star in the Western PA sprint scene! Holtgraver is a force to be reckoned with in the present! He had posted four straight top five finishes in Fab Four Racing entering tonight’s All Star Race, and added another top five to the streak during All Star Competition. He also turned in the third quickest lap of time trials.

David Gravel finished fourth after taking third place away from Holtgraver on a restart, only to see Holtgraver take the spot back in lapped traffic later in the race. All Star veteran Danny Smith rounded out the All Star Top Five. David Gravel set quick time with a lap of 12.801seconds. Greg Wilson, Dave Ely and Kevin Schaeffer won National Guard Heat Races.
