McKisson Scores Lernerville Victory

Nostalgia was the theme of tonight’s Fab Four Racing program as Don Gamble hosted his annual reunion of retired drivers. Johnny Axe, winner of the very first race at Lernerville Speedway, was on hand and was the honorary starter for the Diehl Auto Group DIRTcar Modified Feature. But despite the nostalgic theme of the night, three of the four feature winners claimed their first victory of the season! Alex Ferree (DIRTcar Lates) and Jason Fosnaught (Charapp 28 Sportsman) won their first of the season, while Andy McKisson (Ti22 Sprints) won his first career Lernerville Feature. Jim Weller Jr. was the lone repeat winner as he checkered the Diehl Mods feature to net his second win of 2010

Jim Weller Jr. took a commanding lead from the start in tonight’s Diehl Auto Group DIRTcar Modified feature. Brian Swartzlander battled for second against Tom Winkle until a caution on lap nine. Winkle led eight laps mid-race and was in the second place up until the final lap when he spun in turns three and four trying to make one last big run down the hill into turn four. The end resulted in Jim Weller Jr. coming out on top for his second win of 2010. The rest of the Diehl Top Five were Brian Swartzlander, Kevin Bolland, Mike Turner and Carl Murdick. Previous repeat winner Dave Murdick had another solid top five run going, but slowed to a stop on the back straightaway on lap 17 and finished 13th. National Guard Heat Races went to Dave Murdick and Del Rougeux Jr.
