Mercer, PA (April 12, 2014): Rod George raced to victory in the 410 Sprint Car feature presented by Luxaire Heating & Cooling, Ralph Butch, Inc. and New Wilmington Motors. George’s win snapped a three-year run for Brandon Spithaler in capturing the first checkers for the winged machines at the Park.

Kyle Fink topped the Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modifieds after wrestling the lead away from Lonny Riggs. Tim Burns made a late-race pass to earn the win in the Precise Racing Products Stock Cars. Michael Bauer opened up his title defense the best way possible, taking the win in the Bonnell’s Rod Shop Outlaw Sprint Warriors. Likewise, Shane Pfeuffer scored a win to begin his run for a second straight championship in the Modified Lites presented by Big Daddy’s Speed Center and Rock Concrete. Steve Longwell, Jr. took the nightcap for the Mini Stocks, offered by Eperthener’s Auto Wrecking and Ray’s Racing Collectibles.

George and company had to make repairs to the brakes of his Sprinter after the heat race, and the adjustments proved to be highly successful. “The older I get, the harder it gets,” the veteran mused. “These kids keep coming up and they’re faster, there are some young guys that are really fast,” he added. Indeed, George had to chase down one of the youngsters to claim the win.

Dennis Lunger led from wire to wire to win the non-stop unsanctioned Crate Late Model event. Rich Michael, Jr. fought off a late race charge by Joel Watson to take the opening round of the NDRL Modified Series. Chris Schneider mastered the Open Stocks.

“The track was awesome, I could put the car anywhere I wanted,” Satterlee said. “There was a little spot entering turn one, but there was plenty of room that you could go under it or outside of it,” he added. Satterlee was relieved to get the win, as it was the first race he ran in his home state this season.
