Trevor Berry Captures Spartan Sprints Opener

Seventeen cars were pushed off for the start. Toledo veteran Jimmy McCune in his yellow No. 88 took the lead early as Steve Smith, Gary Sherman and rookie Trevor Berry all chased after him. In the meantime, Tom Fedewa’s family owned No. 42 was wasting no time as he picked off cars one by one from his deep starting spot. On a lap 10 restart, Trevor Berry in his white No. 7 took off like a shot from a cannon, as he went from fifth to the lead over McCune in just a few laps. Fedewa took second and valiantly tried to catch Berry, but the youngster from Clio was able to hold him off and score his first Sprint victory. Afterwards, as his dad beamed with pride, the 20 year old told me that this was his very first Sprint race start. Heat races were won by Doug Dietsch and McCune.
