Great Lakes Traditional Sprints


Owendale, MI (Saturday, July 23, 2023) -Great Lakes Traditional Sprints presented by PErfit Engine Pro (GLTS) had their second mini track race of the season at Silver Bullet Speedway. We did have a rough night out on the track, but thankfully none of the drivers got injured. Unfortunately, we did have rain delay, which set us back almost two hours. Though we had a rough night, GLTS really knows how to put on a fantastic show! The night was packed with a thrilling event of high speed racing and an amazing turnout in the stands. To start this right, we would like to say thank you to all the drivers, fans, sponsors, and staff members who came out to the race and supported us.

Max Frank (Williamston, MI) started in 2nd place and after the first lap, he was able to pass by Ian Hunter (Thamesford, ON) who was holding the lead. Frank was able to hold his place after several cautions and take home another win for the season at Silver Bullet Speedway.

Jason Ferguson (Fremont, MI) ended up winning the Hoosier Racing Tire Hard Charger charging a total of four positions. Frank sets a fast time of 14.954 seconds taking home the MPD Racing Fast Qualifier!

Frank takes home the Engler Machine and Tool Heat Race 1. Steve Irwin (Fenton, MI) wins the Beacon & Bridge Market Heat Race 2. Hunter bags the third Heat Race presented by Specialty Fuels and Logistics.
