THE PIT PASS: Crawford County trio leads FASTRAK Series stop at Raceway 7


MEADVILLE — The Wild Child grabs another win at Eriez

HAMMETT — On Sunday, Chad Wright of Springboro picked up his third feature win of the year at Eriez Speedway in the FASTRAK Late Models over second place finisher Max Blair. Blair had got by Wright at one point during the race, but a red flag stopped the lap before it was completed, putting Wright in the lead for the restart. Wright then pulled away over the second half of the race to claim the checkers.

Bear Lake driver Boom Briggs last visited victory lane two months ago. Sunday night he made a return trip, winning the Super Late Models feature at Eriez Speedway, overtaking former leader Robbie Blair who had engine trouble with five laps to go.

Albion’s Shawn Fawcett picked up the win in the Street Stocks.

Tim Fisher led from the pole to claim his first win of the season in the Challengers.

Joel Watson of Conneaut, Ohio was back in victory lane for the third time this year in the E-Mods.

And the last feature of the night belonged to last year’s track champion, Steve Kania, in the Limited Late Models. This is the Waterford driver’s fourth feature win of the year.

Coming up...

Next week at Raceway 7 is the Chris Clinger Memorial E-Mod race along with its regular divisions. This is one of the best E-mod races of the year to see.

On Saturday at Sharon Speedway will be the RUSH Late Model Touring Series along with the BOSS NW Non-Wing Sprints. Then on Tuesday Night it’s the Lou Blaney Memorial Alzheimer’s Benefit and NASCAR night. The evening will include 410 Sprints for $5,000-to-win and BRP Modifieds for $2,000 to win.

At Mercer Raceway Park on Saturday, the BRP Big Block Modifieds will be in town along with the regular divisions.

Until next week, take your family to the races.

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
