Mid-Atlantic Series - MACS
Indiana, PA 
October 8, 1999
By: Jeff Geesey

Johnson Rocket Rock Fall Fest Opener

The Mid-Atlantic Championship Series (MACS) strolled into Jack and Donna Lentz's Challenger Raceway, Indiana, PA, for their final two performances of the season, Fall Fest V. The twenty-first show of the season was dubbed Fall Stars-Challenge of the Champions Classic, which is a part of the three-day Fall Fest format. Sixty-six drivers arrived from seven states including Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. 

Davey Johnson, Greensburg, PA, nailed his first win with the Series since May 24, last year, marking his second career MACS win. Johnson powers a B.A. Malcuit Rocket, clad with Hoosier's. Davey's supporters include Rocket Chassis, Malcuit Engines, Carrera Shocks and Hoosier Tire. 

A super field of 24 was assembled through eight heats and three B Mains for the 35-lap A Main. A redraw among the top two finishers from each heat for the top 16 starting positions set Davey Johnson on pole flanked by Mike Blose. 

Johnson vaulted into the lead. Dutch Davies, in one of his best Series performances, was in second over Matt Urban, Blose, and Bob Wearing Sr. The field was hurling around the super smooth and fast surface at incredible speeds. By the third circuit, Chub Frank, a master of the Indiana County Oval, sat in fourth after starting ninth. Two quick revolutions later, Frank was in third and bearing down on Davies. 

With Johnson still in firm command on lap 8, Frank blew past Davies into second. The new top five formation was Johnson, Frank, Davies Urban, and Wearing. The first of two cautions flew on lap 11. This gave Frank a chance to gain a tremendous amount of real estate that Johnson gained while clawing his way to the front. 

As the field regrouped, Johnson was still on point over Frank, Davies, Urban and Dave Satterlee, emerging into the top five from the eleventh starting position. On the restart, Johnson again flexed his Malcuit muscle keeping Frank at bay. One more lap was in the books before the second and final caution flew. Johnson continued to lead. The remainder of the top five remained unchanged. 

Lap 14 saw Satterlee displace Davies for third. The top three drivers were hooked up in a terrific battle as they were hurled around the track in an awesome driving display. The fans were absolutely thrilled as they cheered their favorites. Johnson, on lap 18, held off the charges of both Frank and Satterlee when Sam Stile appeared for the first time in the top five. 

Johnson breezed into lapped traffic on the twenty-eighth circuit. With seven to go, everyone was waiting for Frank and Satterlee, who had been racing the wheels off their mounts, to make their move on the leader. 

With five to go, Johnson held onto a tenuous lead over Frank, Satterlee, Davies and Stile. The remaining five revolutions saw Johnson fending off all challengers taking the victory over Frank, Satterlee, Davies and Stile. The next tier of five included Dick Barton, from eighteenth; Bart Hartman, from seventeenth; Mike Johnson; David Scott, from nineteenth; and Urban. 

MACS JRC winner was eleven-year old, Greg Wainwright, Clarksburg, PA. He received t-shirts and hats from Hoosier and McCreary Tire, plus an autographed photo of Davey Johnson, compliments of the Series.

Calico Coatings gift certificate winners were Davey Johnson $125.00; Dick Barton, was the event's hard-charger; however, he did not carry the Calico decal. The award was then given to David Scott (hard charger) $75.00; Steve Casebolt $50.00, Todd Andrews $50.00 and Scott Brode $50.00
