Plymouth, IN — (April 23, 2016) — Plymouth Speedway officials opened the gates to drivers and fans for the Cabin Fever event on Saturday night. New grandstands awaited fans and a wider racing surface on the two available tracks welcomed five classes of drivers.

Kevin Atkins was the winner in the newest class of race cars at the Playground of Power. Ten Shepherd Firearms Pro Sprints were slated to start the inaugural feature event. After a few spins to begin with, Atkins was able to take charge of the race where the Warsaw, Indiana driver stayed. While Atkins had clean air, Joe Swanson and Zane Devault traded spots for the next two positions on the track. Swanson, of Etna Green, Indiana, was able to get by Devault for second on lap seven and the top three remained the same throughout the rest of the 20-lap feature. By the end of the contest, Atkins had an 8.9 second lead on the field. Swanson finished second while Devault, of Plymouth, Indiana, rounded out the top three.
