We saw many smiling faces at the Bullring last night. My guess is that we are all more than excited for this racing season to be starting! Mother Nature gave us the thumbs up and provided us with excellent weather, which resulted in the track being in fantastic shape and holding that way through the end of the night. All of our drivers showed some incredible door to door racing action. Some were even pushing 3 wide!
Our Late Model division saw the #30 of Ryan King take the checkered flag. The #11 machine of Barry Goodman came in a close 2nd, and the #Y3 of Jimmy York slid into 3rd. Mikey Roberts, who is driving the #27, blew an engine a couple laps before the checkered fell, which resulted in a 4th place finish, and the #71 of Chuck Freels pulled into the pit area after the first couple of laps, coming in 5th.
The Super Street division’s #444 of Chuck Heling took the checkered flag. The #333 of Aaron Duncan was tailing him, coming in 2nd. Charlie Godsey in the #4 machine reeled in a 3rd place finish. The T2 of Daniel Raimondi pulled into the pit area near the end of the race, ending up with a 4th place finish, and the #24 machine of Ronnie Shelton looked to be having some issues with his machine in the middle of the race and was taken into the pit area, resulting in 5th place.
The Pony Stock Division’s winner was the #5 of Bo Allison. Dustin Benton in the #34 wasn’t giving him any room for error, coming in 2nd. The #18 of Ronnie Blair pulled into the pit area with some problems on his machine, resulting in a 3rd place finish. The #18 of William Tallent was pulled into the pits after what appeared to be a busted radiator, coming in 4th, and Doug Guider in the #7 machine pulled in early, rounding out in 5th.
Our Front Wheel Drive Division welcomed the #7 of Daniel Sizemore to the win. The #25 of David Singleton followed in 2nd, after making the pass on Nick Adams in the #92 machine coming to the checkered flag, who finished 3rd. Nathan Adams, the brother of Nick Adams, in the #A93 came in 4th. Kevin Crane in the #52 finished 5th, and our mystery driver, the #41, was taken into the pit area after some problems with his machine, resulting in a 6th place finish.

It was a fun-filled, action-packed night of racing at Spring City Raceway, and it wouldn’t have been possible without each of these drivers, their crews, the fans in the grandstands and tier parking, and the track officials.
