The Upstate Racing League Super Sprint Series went to the famed Eldora Speedway for double features on Sunday April 9th. Alex Orians would set quick time in qualifying and lead the field to the green flag. On the start Brian Rogers Jr and AJ Hamel would make contact ending the night for AJ Hamel. On the restart Orians would take off with Shawn Cool in tow along with Rogers Jr. With 5 laps to go Cool would clip the inside wall allowing Rogers Jr and Smith Jr to move past. Orians would go on to win with Rogers Jr and Smith Jr would round out the podium. There were great battles through out the field and we would like to thank everyone for racing the 305 race!
When the drivers swapped over to the 360 it was Al Smith Jr grabbing the quick time and lead the field of 11 to the green flag. Smith Jr would jump out to the early lead with Bruce Hilton close in tow. The yellow would fly for contact between Rogers Jr and Shawn Cool slowing the field for the first time. On the restart Smith Jr would launch on the restart with Hilton working the inside of the track and almost completing the pass but Smith Jr would hold onto the lead. With 5 to go Hilton would get into the outside wall ending his chances. The green would come back out with Smith Jr leading the 305 winner, Alex Orians, to the green. Smith Jr would hold on and pick up the win. Orians would battle Jim McIntyre and Richard Haskins for a spot on the podium and in the end McIntyre would grab second followed across the line by Richard Haskins.
Next week the dirt warriors will tackle the USA Speedway with a pair of 360 features. One will be fixed set and the other open set. The CKF Construction Approval Series has no race Thursday night but will be holding a practice session at 5 Flags Speedway from 8-10 pm eastern.
