Mercer, PA (August 24, 2014): The Steel City Outlaw, Tim Shaffer, is the Western Pennsylvania Sprint Car Champion. He earned the honor in the 25th running of the event at Mercer Raceway Park, which is minutes from his home in Aliquippa, PA. The four-time champ of the All Stars Circuit of Champions held off his protege, Danny Holtgraver, and The Wild Child, Jac Haudenschild. It was the second straight night that a local All Star made it to victory lane. The two-day event was presented by Bonnell’s Rod Shop, and it included a party with live music, a hog roast, and other activities to entertain the fans and to raise money for the injured driver relief fund.
Tyler Denochick, of Morrisdale, PA, quickly figured out the fast way around Mercer Raceway Park. He held off Michael Bauer to claim the win in the Bonnell’s Rod Shop Outlaw Sprint Warriors in just his second appearance at the track. Frankie Guidace made a three-wide pass of leader Shawn Fleeger and a lapped car to take the top spot in the Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modifieds. The nightcap for the Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series belonged to Shaun Fawcett, who inherited the lead after a spectacular tangle between the leaders, Curtis J. Bish and Randy Wyant on what would have been the final lap of the contest.
