Krzywosinski Lands Third Straight at Springport
By: Chris Fobbe – Springport Motor Speedway

Springport, Michigan (7/26) – One of the most high profile fields of drivers lined up for the Kitsmiller RV Super Late Models for their last race leading into their biggest show of the year, the upcoming Charlie Ryan Jr. Memorial on August 9th. They would hit the track for the fourth feature of the evening.

First on the track was the AP Motors A-Division running a 25-lap event. Ron Landis started things off on the pole, but it would be Six-time Track Champion Earl Miles taking command of the top spot. Miles of Hanover, Michigan was debuting a brand new car, and showed up late to the track not getting any time to practice. Miles would be headed by Defending Track Champion Joe Barnhart. The two made contact at one point, but Miles was a man on a mission as he picked up the feature win to go along with his win in the Drive Train Specialists Modifieds division back on May 31. Barnhart would come home in second for the second straight week with Landis, Craig Stephens and Damon Place completing the top five.

The Ducks Point C-Store B-Division was the next event to hit the picturesque 3/8s (.375) mile oval. Brian Barden started on the pole. Mike Havens held the point on the completion of the opening circuit with a three-wide pass for the top spot. Havens and his crew, based out of Jackson, Michigan had struggled with mechanical woes for the better part of six races, and finally seemed to have the car dialed in as he led 2/3s of the event, but was eventually headed by current points leader Bryan Noble. Noble snuck by on lap 16 and went on to take his fifth win of the season. Havens settled for a well deserved second place, with Jeff Lonsberry, Dale Eglon and Tim Sharpe Jr. completing the top five.

For the ABC Stock Cars Tim Sharpe Jr., Landis and Miles claimed heat race wins, while JD Hancock set fast time for the first time this season with a 16.320.

The third event of the night was the FUG Printing Sport Stock division. Bill McBride started on the pole but was headed by rookie contender Darrell Harmon on the opening trip. Soon after Dutch Taylor, a Michigan Motorsports Hall of Fame member, was able to power into the lead. Dutch would end up tangling with a lapped car and pulled off of the track during a resulting caution. Defending Track Champion Aaron Taylor would inherit the lead from his grandfather as he went on to claim his fifth feature win. Steve Workman was second in his first appearance of the season, with Wayne Parkhurst, Brad Robison and Darrell Harmon completing the top five. Bill McBride and Aaron Taylor claimed heat race wins, while Aaron started his hat trick night in qualifying with a 18.842.

The Kitsmiller RV Super Late Models were the next race up. Rookie Trey Graham started on the pole, before being overtaken by Scott Sigman. Sigman would maintain for a pair of laps but was headed by Tim Ryan. Ryan would have a whale of a battle with Suttons Bay, Michigan pilot Randy Day. The two would make contact, with Ryan taking responsibility for the incident. This would give Day the lead. On the restart Day fell victim to Edgerton, Ohio veteran Jack Landis. Landis looked to be on rails as he ran up front, but on lap 15 a huge plume of smoke came out of the back of Landis’s car, an expired engine putting the leader out of the race. Dan Krzywosinski would get the lead at that point. The Clio, Michigan driver would pull away once the race resumed and go on to take his third straight feature win. Randy Day was second with Jimmy Gallagher, Brian Huntley and Tim Ryan completing the top five. Sigman and Ryan took heat race wins, while Krzywosinski set fast time with an incredibly quick 15.146 (89.1 mph).  

As a special attraction the GLOW Vintage Modifieds were the final feature event of the evening. Tony Campbell started things off up front, before Ken Quimby took command. Quimby would lead for just two laps before Jimmy Lanson took over. Lanson would drive away from the field as he took the win. Larry Mollohan was second with Jason Burris, Quimby and Brian Roes closing out the top five. Lanson won the four car dash and Kristie Mollohan won the heat race. Lanson was fast qualifier with a 17.313.

Coming up this Saturday will be the third appearance of the Top Speed Fabrication ICAR Modifieds Series presented by Wertz Warriors (Michigan Winter Special Olympics Supporter). In the last two appearances this season the series has averaged over 32 cars in just the modified division. Also on the card will be the AP Motors / Ducks Point C-Store ABC Stock Cars and the FUG Printing Sport Stocks. It will also be Autograph Night at the Springport Motor Speedway. Adults are just $10, anyone 21 and under are free. It is also Holt and Dimondale Good Neighbor Night with anyone from those towns getting in for free.
