PITTSBURGH'S PENNSYLVANIA MOTOR SPEEDWAY
IMPERIAL, PA….The 1999 Limited Late Model points race at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway ended Saturday, September 11th, in a three-way tie for the title between Len Dobrosielski of Kennedy Township, and Rick Heim and Dave Wade, both of Pittsburgh. Following the races that evening, it was determined that Dobrosielski would be the champion because he had more feature wins (5) than Heim (4) and Wade (3).
However, upon further review it was decided that only points races should be used to break the tie. One of Dobrosielski's wins occurred on a non-points night, July 17th. This left Heim and Dobrosielski tied with four wins each.
Second place finishes (on points nights) was the next criteria used, and Heim finished in the runner-up spot four times while Dobrosielski had three second place finishes.
Heim wins the tiebreaker and will be recognized as the Limited Late Model champion.
"This is the first time in the eleven years we've operated the speedway that we've had a tie for a championship", said Miley Motorsports President, Red Miley. "My apologies to Len for a premature decision Saturday ", he added. "All three are deserving of the championship and should be congratulated for the way they raced each other all season."
