McGinley, Bova, Morris, Stearns and Moore also Collect Wins
Mercer, PA (May 25, 2013): Brandon Spithaler did it again, taking the B.O.S.S. traditional Sprint Car win at Mercer Raceway Park after winning the opener for the winged Sprints presented by Luxaire Heating & Cooling and New Wilmington Motors. His first win in the car fielded by Tom Burkey propelled him into the points lead for the touring series. Remarkably, Spithaler’s winning ride was powered by a 360 motor!
J.R. McGinley led wire to wire in the non-stop feature for the Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modifieds. Cody Bova picked up the win in the Big Daddy’s Speed Center/Rock Concrete Modified Lites, his second in a row, but this time he was driving his own machine. Jimmy Morris raced home with the win in the Bonnell’s Collision Center Outlaw Sprint Warriors. Wally Stearns scored in the Mini Stocks presented by Eperthener’s Auto Wrecking and Ray’s Racing Collectibles. Rusty Moore made a last lap pass on Bob Schwartzmiller to take the nightcap for the Precise Racing Products Stock Cars.
Spithaler rebounded from a DNF the night before in at B.O.S.S. race at Wayne County Speedway. He ras running a close third that night when a bolt fell out of the steering gear. “It feels like every time I’m in that car, it’s ready to win.” The key to his success was the maneuverability of the car. “I could drive across the track, almost like a winged car,” he explained. Spithaler used that to his advantage to chase down and pass Sheldon Haudenschild, who was riding the rim.
