Holyoke, CO. (May 25, 2014) – Veteran Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association (RMMRA) driver Bob Harr finally kicked the old monkey off his shoulder Saturday night at Philips County Raceway by winning the 15 Lap “A” Feature.
On the start of the “A” Feature, pole sitter Scott Fennell took the opening lap. On lap two, Bob Harr, starting third row inside driving the Bear Electric, Shatz/Shatz Atty’s at Law, Musser Racing Engines, Halaar Racing took the led from Fennell. While Harr was leading, Chris Sheil and last week Feature winner Keith Rauch was working their way up through the field. Around lap 5, Sheil and Rauch caught Harr and the battle was on for the win. But on lap thirteen, Sheil’s oil line broke, stopping in turn three, causing a yellow flag. On the restart, Rauch challenged Harr for the lead but Harr had too much for Rauch. At the checker, it was Harr, Rauch, Greg Schaefer, Mark Chisholm and Fennell rounding out the top five.
Notes: The last time Harr won a “A” Feature event was on September 27, 2003 at Rocky Mountain National Speedway in Denver, Colorado. This is Harr 5th career RMMRA Feature win.
