Fink, Jones, and Loghan also Triumph
Mercer, PA (May 31, 2014): Jared Zimbardi scored the victory in the ASCS Patriot Sprint Tour event hosted at Mercer Raceway Park by Bonnell’s Rod Shop. The triumph allowed Zimbardi to stretch his lead in the standings for the touring series. He ran third earlier in the season in a 410 Sprint Car race at the track, and said that it was an important learning experience.
Kyle Fink, the points leader in the Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modifieds, captured his second win of the season, after a spirited battle with Lonny Riggs and Jimmy Holden. C.J. Jones copped the Outlaw Sprint Warrior main, presented by Bonnell’s Rod Shop. Chris Loghan, the last racer to arrive on the grounds, took the nightcap for the Rock Concrete Modified Lites.
“It was going to get interesting in lapped traffic,” Zimbardi said. “I was pretty good around one and two on the high side, but I guess he (Steve Collins) made it a little easier for me.” Indeed, Collins clipped a lapped car, spinning both, and that gave Zimbardi control of the event. He almost gave the race away by making an adjustment to his top wing. “I slid the wing back on that last restart and the thing hooked up so much I just about drove over the frontstretch cone.”
