Firecracker 100 weekend lineups and results
SARVER, Pa. (June 29) — Lineups and results from Saturday's finale of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series Firecracker 100 presented by GottaRace.com weekend at Lernerville Speedway (lineups and results are unofficial):
Second-starting Josh Richards came out on top of a battle of attrition to record a weekend sweep in the seventh annual Firecracker 100 Presented by GottaRace.com. Richards took the lead from polesitter Scott Bloomquist on the 16th lap and held it for the remainder of the distance on a lightning-quick surface to record a $30,000 victory. Bloomquist, Shane Clanton, John Blankenship, Rick Eckert and Tim McCreadie each pressured Richards for the race lead at various points in the main event, but none were able to muscle their way past the front-running Richards. McCreadie topped Darrell Lanigan in a battle for second over the closing laps, while 20th-starting Gregg Satterlee and third-starting Jared Landers rounded out the race's top five finishers.
The 100-lapper was slowed by ten cautions and a pair of red flags. The first red flag appeared as a safety precaution following a lap-33 caution for Chub Frank and allowed drivers to switch helmets and replace tear-offs after mud from the tacky surface accumulated and hampered drivers' vision. Eric Wells got upside down entering turn three with six laps to go to draw the second red flag. Wells went for a wild ride but walked away unharmed.
Russ King topped Boom Briggs for a $3,000 payday in the Uncle Sam 30 non-qualifers race on a night where the start of action was delayed roughly two hours by rain.
