Local Drivers Highlighted at Springport Motor Speedway

By: Chris Fobbe – Springport Motor Speedway

Springport, Michigan (6/15) – The local drivers were highlighted on a night featuring a format that harkened back to the olden days of racing, with Four Car Dashes and Australian Pursuits in every class ran on a warm Saturday night.

The first feature on the track would be the Sport Stocks. Richard Peck has been an infrequent visitor to the 3/8s (.375) mile high banked oval, but the primarily dirt racer has managed to make himself a roaring success at Springport’s asphalt oval. Peck would hold off last week’s winner Aaron Taylor in an exciting feature event that would keep the fans on the edge of their seats. William Hartman was the Dash winner, while Peck won the heat and Michigan Motorsports Hall of Famer Dutch Taylor claimed the Australian Pursuit. Peck was also fast qualifier, with an 18.824.

The Ducks Point C-Store A-Division feature would be a back and forth contest that would see drama and action aplenty. Mike Ammerman and Andrew Ritter were the stars of the show, as they rubbed and raced all over the high banks. They would make contact on a restart, and Ammerman would get damage from a charging Justin Stephens. Ammerman would continue on with a damaged machine, but could only manage to get close to the back bumper on the Ritter machine, as Andrew Ritter went on to claim his first Springport Motor Speedway feature win. Ritter also won the Dash, while multi-time Spartan Speedway Champion Dane Long was the Australian Pursuit winner.

The AP Motors B-Division feature was another dramatic affair, as several C-Division regulars were able to clock in within the split for the B-feature. Mark Langs and Randy Riever would show they belonged in the B-feature, as they raced back and forth in the early running, until Riever got ahead and tried to pull away. Riever would soon have to contend with a hard charging Tom Coleman, who was in search of another feature win. Coleman would banzai into turn three, and slide past Riever on lap 11 and it would be smooth sailing as he went on to take the win.

The final feature of the evening was an intense C-Division feature. Martin French was able to work his way up early on and began to pull away from the field, but unfortunately the stop watch said French was under his qualifying time, which would allow Jerry Schroll to inherit the lead. As French tried to catch a caution and get back to the right side of the field, Schroll would take the checkered flag.
