ROARING KNOB RACEWAY PARK
By Judy Gower
MARKLEYSBURG, PA..Greencastle's D. J. Myers made his return to Roaring Knob
Raceway Park a triumphant one as he drove to a convincing win in Sunday's late
model feature.The Maryland Minerals "Pedal to the Medal Pure
Stock 20" special event went to Dilliner's Wayne Jordan, and Jeff
Davis from Somerset picked up his first feature win in the DWARF cars.
D.J. Myers overtook newcomer Ricky Thomas for the lead on
the third lap of the late model main, and once in front quickly checked out from
the field. Meanwhile, tenth starting Jeff Thomas and eleventh starting Tom
Myers were on their way forward. (Tom) Myers's run ended the next lap as
contact with an out of shape competitor forced him to retire from the event.
With the green back out, D.J. once again assumed command, and Thomas continued
his pursuit of Myers, making a daring move taking him from seventh to third.
Two circuits later he got by Corey Conley for second, and pursued the leader as
the laps wound down. Myers, however, maneuvered masterfully
through lapped traffic, and easily scored his second win of the season at the
Knob. Thomas crossed the line in the runner-up spot with Conley
third, and current points leader Bob Wearing Jr. fourth, while Rob King rounded
out the top five. Heat race wins went to Jeff Thomas and D.J. Myers.
Six time Roaring Knob feature winner, Wayne Jordan, and nine time
Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway winner, Al Atallah, shared the front row for
the start of the special "Pedal to the Medal Pure Stock 20".
immediately grabbed the lead with Atallah and fifth starting Jack
Rosenberger in hot pursuit. The race went non stop for eighteen laps
through heavy traffic until the caution came out for Bob Nelson.
the stage for a two lap shootout, but Jordan was determined, and at the
checker it was the 6J of Jordan picking up win number seven in a close finish
over Atallah and Rosenberger. The top three machines were powered by spec
engines. Jimmy Shaffer finished just ahead of Bart Tressler
for fourth;and completing the top ten were Scott Herring, Greg Hauger, Scott
Spade,Jason Gibbs and Marshall Coleman. The three heat race winners were
Atallah,Jordan, and Shaffer.
The DWARF cars once again gave the fans a show as they sliced and
their way around the 3/8th oval. Last week's winner, John Cogar, charged
through the pack from the back, and had race long leader Davis in his sights
as the laps were winding down. A yellow for a spin reset and closed up the
field for the final two circuits, but Davis managed to hold off the
Cogar for his first DWARF car win at Roaring Knob. Greg Shingleton crossed
the stripe in third with Eric Hay fourth , and Eric Stoltz right behind to
complete the top five. W. L. Stile and Davis were the heat race winners.
