Jul 31, 2010 - Leasure Makes Long Tow Pay off For Street Stock Special!

Kerens, WV - July 30, 2010 - Beautiful skies, mild temperatures and the smell of gas and racing alcohol greeted dirt racing fans friday night in the hills of West Virginia at Elkins Speedway.

Headlining the evenings race program was the Street Stock special, a 20-lap showdown paying $700 to the winner.  It was all Ed Leasure in this event as he started up front and simply dominated the feature, making the long 4-hour tow all the way from Cambridge, Ohio area payoff.  With Leasure checking out from the field early in the race, second-running Mike Duritsky of Uniontown, Pa. looked to be holding his own when all of the sudden disaster struck the #90 machine as he quickly pulled pitside ending his night early on lap 14. Last weeks feature winner and Elkins Speedway regular Randy Bohan of Weston, WV then took over the runner-up spot, holding off McClellandtown. Pa.'s Jim Byers and Belington, WV's Ricky Vest for the remaining laps.

Ed Leasure and Randy Bohan won the two qualifying heat races.
