Redman, Stinson, Keenan Take Skyline Mains
by Scott Wolfe
STEWART, Ohio -- Another night of racing went in the books Friday night (July 27, 2012) where Harold Redman, Jr. , Tyler Mountain, WV outlasted a stout field of AMRA Tru-Tech Late Models storming from 11th to first, while Jimmy Stinson, Vandalia, OH picked up his third Skyline win of the year in the OVSCA 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars. Clint Keenan survived several tango's to claim what is believed to be his first Skyline Feature win in the AMRA Malta Modifieds, and Zach Carr picked up the win in the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges 'Winged Wedges' event.
In the 25-lap sprint car feature Jimmy Stinson inherited the lead from Jimmy Nier who had led the first 13 circuits before suffering mechanical woes. Despite several challenges from Josh Davis, Stinson rode off into the sunset for the night's big $1,500 payday.
Greg Mitchell, after flipping in his heat was hard charger in a 15 to 5th place run. Rounding out the top ten were Stinson, Davis, McPeek, Layfield, Mitchell, McGlumphy, Martin, Tucker, Broughton, and Dickson.
Chesterhill, OH driver Ronnie Mayle blasted into the early lead and led the first 11 circuits, but on lap 12 second place Ralph Withem and Mayle became entangled and went to the tail. Chris Garnes inherited the lead, but Harold Redman, Jr. blasted by as attrition began to decimate the field. Time ran out on the feature with Redman bringing home his first Skyline win of the year.
Redman was the hard charger of the race as well. Rounding out the top ten were Redman, Jr., Newhouse, Roush, Burdette, Powell, Bond, Garnes, Mayle, Withem, and Brookover.
Clint Keenan led all twenty laps of the AMRA Malta Modified main with Nick Corbitt in tow the entire duration. Jeremy Berwanger was making a run on the top two, but went pitside on lap nine. Despite Corbitt's charge, Keenan emerged the winner in a great run. Andy Bond was the hard charger in a 14 to 4th run. Rounding out the top ten were Keenan, Corbitt, R. Roush, A. Bond, Stacy, T. Roush, Tonkin, Barnhart, Hendrix, and Rhodes.
The make-up date for the 4th annual Greg Schilling Memorial Race at Skyline will be Sept. 7. Ohio Valley Speedway has helped the AMRA make this a great two-day weekend as it will hold its annual $1,200 to win modified special on Saturday, Sept. 8. Two big days of Open Wheel racing!
