From Williams Grove Speedway
MECHANICSBSURG, PA — Tyler Walker scored his first career victory in sprint car competition at Williams Grove Speedway Friday night and Mark Smith won the URC feature. Walker started seventh in the 25-lap main event and moved into second place on the first lap. Cory Haas started on the pole and set the early pace for the first eight laps. Walker made his move entering the first turn on lap nine and slid in front of Haas to take the lead. At that point Lance Dewease, who started eleventh, was third. He drove by Haas on lap twelve and Brian Montieth, who started 12th, followed Dewease past the early leader. Despite three restarts which wiped out substantial leads for Walker, Dewease was unable to make a serious challenge and the Californian rolled to a 1.67 second victory worth $4270. Walker, 31, of Los Angeles, has won in every major winged sprint car series in America, but made it clear that his first Williams Grove win was special. He credited new crew chief Steve Suchy for helping him get to victory lane. Dewease settled for second with Montieth a close third. Brent Marks was fourth and Fred Rahmer, who started 18th, completed the top five. Mark Smith, Todd Shaffer, Danny Dietrich, Steve Buckwalter and Chad Layton finished in positions six through ten respectively. Heats for the 25 sprint cars in competition went to Haas, Rick Lafferty and Mark Coldren. In the URC feature Mark Smith and Pat Cannon swapped the lead during the early stages before Smith took over and rolled to a convincing victory. Cannon finished 5.53 seconds off the pace. Aaron Ott, who started 13th, charged to a third-place finish. Daryn Pittman moved from tenth to fourth. Blane Heimbach completed the top five. J. J. Grasso, Josh Weller, Davie Franek, Robbie Stillwaggon and Curt Michael rounded out the top ten. Heats for the 43 URC sprints in competition were won by Smith, Heimbach, Stillwaggon and Michael. The B-mains went to Glenndon Forsythe and Kevin Nouse.
