After a few weeks of Engine problems
the team got the problem improoved but the engine was still not up to par. Starting 2nd in the feature
event Former Claysburg/Chestnut Ridge Student Wade Champeno quickly got the lead on lap 8. Wade
held the lead for 15 laps. He was holding off the hard charging Dusty Rhoads. On lap 23 Dusty got enough momentum
to get underneath Wade and take the lead. Wade Came across the line in second.
"I was keeping Dusty behind me for a long time
and we were having problems with our carb. The car dropped off two tenths of a second in lap time
towards the end of the race and Dusty finally got enough momentum to get underneath me." Remarked Wade. The team
is hoping to have the carb tuned better for next weekend.
Dusty Rhoads first, Wade Champeno second, Andrew Wylie, Mel Wilt and Chris
