Another Top Ten For Sammons and Team
BORDENTOWN, NJ: On April 18th, Davey Sammons and his John Chemidlin Special, Pioneer Pole Buildings No. 747 team competed at Port Royal Speedway. This event was a tune-up show for this coming weekends All Star Circuit of Champion Bob Weikert Memorial event.
Heat races were lined up by using group time trials. Each racer took part in single car two lap time trials, but were only timing against the cars in their heat race.
Sammons timed second quick during his group time trail laps to Greg Hodnett. The four fastest cars were inverted for the start of the heat races, placing Sammons in the 3rd starting position. At the start Sammons made a pass on Rick Lafferty to move into second place. Sammons finished third in his heat race after loosing a position to Greg Hodnett. Dave Ely picked up the victory from the pole position.
Sammons' third place finish lined him up 10th for the start of the A-Main. Sammons got an extremely good start making an inside move in turns 3 & 4 to pass Brent Marks, Dave Blaney and Dave Ely. Sammons would work his way up into the 5th position. On a late race restart with only 2 laps remaining, Sammons used the outside to get around the lapped car of Dave Hahn in turns 1 & 2. Entering turn 3 the lap car would nearly run into Sammons' left rear tire, pulling the air off of his wing and giving Sammons a push into the center of the turn. This left the door open for Brent Marks who took full advantage of the opportunity, dropping Sammons into the 6th position.
With four consecutive top 10 finishes, Davey and team hope to carry their momentum into this Weekend's $15,000 to win Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway.
