Stoyer Opens ’15 with Win

When Randy West and Nick Skias share the front row for a 270 Micro Sprint race at Linda’s Speedway there is a good chance there winner will be coming from row one. A wide racing surface Friday night provided a different story. Skias bolted to the front of the field and the defending champion led the first 15 laps of the RTS Chassis sponsored main event. Jacob Hendershot caught Skias in traffic and made the pass for the lead. Hendershot, who led much of the 2014 season opener but broke late in the race, had revenge on his mind. Unfortunately for Hendershot the fate would be the same. The 28 slowed on the back stretch on lap 21. Josh Stoyer had just overtaken Skias for the runner up spot and inherited the lead. Stoyer closed out the rest of the race for his 12th career Linda’s Speedway win. The win also moves Stoyer to 12th on the all time 270 Micro Sprint win list. Skias crossed the line second with 14th place starter Brad Brown closing out the podium finishers. Former National Open champions Logan Diehl and Ross Perchak raced to top five finishes. Rounding out the top ten were Brian Marriott, Pat Bealer, Jesse Maurer, Rob Pajauis, and Devin Harron. 36 of the 270 Micro Sprints were in the pit area with heat race wins going to West, Skias, Hendershot, and Christi Sweigart. Consolations were won by Lyle Stroman and Scott Gingrich.
