Great Lakes Traditional Sprints
Frederickson Rebounds for Big Win
Lake Odessa, MI – Parker Frederickson (Kokomo, IN) gets back on track with a feature win with Great Lakes Traditional Sprints presented by PErfit. With some bad luck last weekend, Frederickson rolled into I-96 Speedway with his car ready to race tonight, driving home with the big $1,500 check!
In qualifying Frederickson finished second to reigning GLTS Champion, Stevie Irwin (Fenton, MI) who was the MPD Racing Fast Qualifier. Keith Sheffer, Jr (Jerome, MI), Isaac Chapple (Willow Branch, IN) and Ricky Lewis (Oxnard, CA) rounded out the top 5.
In the Engler Machine and Tool Heat 1, Irwin and Dustin Daggett (Portland, MI) move up from 4th and 5th respectively to go one and two. Sheffer, Lewis and Brian Ruhlman (Clark Lake, MI) rounded out the top five.
Frederickson, starting 4th in the Rocket Header Heat 2, drove forward and was able to hold off Chapple for the heat win. Max Frank (Williamston, MI), Lee Underwood (Troy, OH) and Jason Ferguson (Fremont, MI) round out the top 5 finishers.
In the PErfit A-Main, Frank and Frederickson lead the field around to the flag stand to take the green. As the flag drops, Frederickson uses his outside position to run the rim and takes the lead in the first lap and he never looked back. He put his right rear in the cushion and looked like he was on cruise control, never really being challenged, taking the checkered leading all 25 laps. Chapple the current BOSS points leader, chipped his way up from 5th to a 2nd place finish, never really having an opportunity to challenge Frederickson as they were dodging lapped traffic. Daggett, Irwin and Ruhlman rounded out the top 5 spots.
Ruhlman started 9th but slipped back to 10th for most of the feature, but started moving forward in lap 16 and driving up to 5th earning him the Hoosier Race Tire Hard Charger Award.
Great Lakes Traditional Sprints presented by PErfit will next be in action at Waynesfield Raceway Park for Sunday, July 3rd for the Hewitt Classic, with our 7/2 race at Fremont Speedway cancelled for Saturday, July 2nd after a nasty storm did extensive damage to the facility earlier today.
Thank you to our sponsors that make all of this possible!
