Sodeman Holds Off Williams for Sprint Win at Mercer Raceway Park

Gabany, Bish, Jones, Fulton, and Bauer also Score

Mercer, PA (April 26, 2014): Jack Sodeman, Jr. grabbed win in the 410 Sprint feature presented by Luxaire Heating & Cooling and McCrudden Heating & Supply at Mercer Raceway Park. Sodeman had to hold off a furious charge by Eric “Turkey” WIlliams in the final six laps. The victory, coupled with the failure of points leader Carl Bowser to start the event, propelled the defending champion to the top of the standings. “It’s way too early to be worried about the points,” Sodeman quipped.

Eric Gabany scored his first Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modified feature since last Fall’s Little Guys Nationals preliminary night feature. Curtis J. Bish was declared the winner in the Precise Racing Products Stock Cars when apparent winner Leigh Wheeler came up 20 pounds light at the scales. Rod Jones raced to the win in the Rock Concrete Modified Lites. Tyler Fulton made a last-lap pass of points leader Mike McConnell to earn the checkers in the Mini Stocks offered by Eperthener’s Auto Wrecking and Ray’s Racing Collectibles. The finale for the Bonnell’s Rod Shop Outlaw Sprint Warriors went to Michael Bauer.
