Stillwaggon Tops URC Thriller


BEDFORD, Pa. — Heavy rain in the morning cleared the path for a lightning fast Bedford Speedway on Friday night as teammates Randy West and Robbie Stillwaggon waged a thrilling battle in Rislone URC Sprint Series competition.

West led the first 11 laps when teammate Robbie Stillwaggon took the top spot. A late-race double-file restart on lap 14 offered West an opportunity to take back the lead and he did on lap 17.

West set the pace until lap 20 when Stillwaggon regained the lead and went on to score the win. A happy face that could be seen from almost anywhere was that of Fred Kennedy, owner of both cars.

Ed Aikin finished third with Davie Franek and Brian Carber rounding out the top five.

The finish:

Robbie Stillwaggon, Randy West, Ed Aikin, Davie Franek, Brian Carber, Joe Trenca, Will Eggiman, Josh Weller, Nate Snyder, Chad Trout, Jimmy Stitzel, Troy Betts, Dan Mazy, Jonathan Swanson, Eric Riggins, Wes Irwin, Kevin Darling, Scott Lutz, Brad Franks.
