At the Granite Construction Super Sprint Cars Series race on Saturday, June 19 at Evergreen Speedway, cars pass through turn two during one of the caution periods. Greg Middendorf in the #4 car led most of the early race and finished 6th.
The winner was Troy DeCarie in car #41, the black car in the above picture behind the blue #4. Second place was Tod Coleman and third was Randy DeBoise. The first three racers were covered by less than 1.5 seconds, after 30 laps.
The first third of the race was marred by yellow flag caution periods, but no injuries in the spinouts. The remainder was a sprint to the finish. With an inverted starting system, the faster cars start father back, DeCarie qualified fastest and started 10th, but charged through the pack to take the lead with two laps to go and never ceded it. He had won a race in South Carolina the weekend prior and made a long tow to race at Evergreen Speedway.
It was a hot night and the yellow flags increased the driver heat, as the cars run slower. ”In the yellows I lifted my visor and tilted my head to try to get some cool air, it was tough,” DeCarie said.
The winged sprint cars return to Evergreen Speedway on July 3. Other upcoming race weekends are the annual
Mark Galloway Shootout June 26 and the all-star Summer Showdown on July 23 and 24.
