Dan Armbruster wins for Santa Claus at Raceway 7
Full Track Story
Conneaut, Ohio, (July 16) Dan Armbruster picked up his first win of the season on Coca Cola Christmas in July night on Friday night at Raceway 7. The Harborcreek, PA driver became the tenth different winner in 11 weeks of racing, with his victory in the Maloney Tool and Mold Late Model feature race.
The 20 lap Maloney Tool and Mold Late Model feature had Dan Armbruster and Dale Applebee leading the field to the green flag. Armbruster moved into the lead from the start with Applebee and Bob Craig taking up the chase. Craig spun on lap 5 while battling Dave Lyon for third, bringing out the first yellow. Rob Blair moved into third, and put pressure on Applebee for second while Armbruster kept in front. After a final yellow on lap 8, Armbruster pulled away from the field en route to the feature win. Armbruster could not have gone much further, as his car had a flat right rear tire in victory lane. Applebee held off Blair for the second spot. Mickey Wright advanced from eighth starting spot for fourth, with Ron Davies coming from 11th starting spot for fifth. Dutch Davies was sixth, as Frank Poniatowski, David Scott, Lyon, and Matt Urban completed the top ten. Blair, Dick Barton, and Lyon were the qualifying Heat race winners.
