SELINSGROVE, Pa. – In an exciting race that at one point produced a three-wide battle for the lead, Brock Zearfoss secured the front spot on lap 11 in Saturday night’s 25-lap 360 sprint car feature at Selinsgrove Speedway and drove to his first win of the season.
The win for Zearfoss, at the wheel of the Central Builders Supply No. 1-W, was his second career at the track and was worth $2,000.
Polesitter Bobby Parrow took the early in the sprint car feature and was chased by fourth-place starter Ryan Kissinger. Kissinger and second-place starter Michael Walter II dueled for the runner-up position for several laps while sixth-place starter Brock Zearfoss joined the battle at the front of the pack.
On the sixth circuit, a three-wide race for the lead between Parrow, Kissinger, and Zearfoss unfolded through turns one and two. On a lap seven restart, Kissinger made a pass underneath Parrow in turn one to take the lead. Another torrid battle for the lead developed between Kissinger and Zearfoss, while an exciting wheel-to-wheel race was taking place for the top five positions between eighth-place starter T.J. Stutts, fifth-place starter Derek Locke,and 10th-place starter Mark Smith.
On the 11th lap, Zearfoss attempted a pass on the low side through turns one and two but had to wait until turn four to make the winning pass using the outside line by Kissinger. Zearfoss then opened up a lead only to have Stutts make a spectacular effort to catch him in the final laps.
At the finish, Zearfoss was victorious by just 1.5 seconds over Stutts, Smith, Locke, and seventh-place starter Pat Cannon.
Jeff Rine made a late-race pass for the lead in the 25-lap super late model feature for his third win of the year and 88th career at the track.
Derrick Garman held off multiple challenges for the lead and scored his first career win at Selinsgrove Speedway in the 15-lap pro stock feature, while Keith Bissinger of Orangeville powered to his fourth win of the season in the 12-lap roadrunner race.
