Area Roundup: Barbara, Murdick and Seger Score Special Wins In Local Action

Fans in the western PA/eastern OH were treated to three great special events all in one fine evening of racing on Saturday night as Mercer Raceway Park, Sharon Speedway and Pittsburgh PA’s Motor Speedway (PPMS) all held either a touring series or had a special division visit their respective facilities.  Recently re-opened Tri City Raceway Park also ran a full Saturday night program headlined by super late models as well. So in lieu of our normal weekend scoreboard, we’d like to take you to the stories (told by some fantastic writers) from all four facilities.

BRP Modifieds at Mercer Raceway Park:

The BRP Modified Tour made their annual visit to Mercer Raceway Park and didn’t disappoint as a healthy car count and some passing in the feature headlined the night of racing at Mercer Raceway Park. Niagara frontier invaders Erick Rudolph and Shayne Pierce both gave it their all, but when the checkered flag fell, it was Dave Murdick, (from 6th) who took home the trophy. Outlaw Sprint Warriors, Mod Lites, Vintage Mods and 4 cylinders were also on the card.

He found victory lane for the first time in 2015 at Saturday night, holding off a hard charging Brandon Matus by a very slim margin at the line to take home the $1500 victory. EModmodifieds, Econo Mods, Stocks and 4 cylinders also made an appearance Saturday night.
