Blair Wins Dick Litz Memorial At Eriez
HAMMETT, Pa. — Max Blair continued his 2019 dominance at Eriez Speedway, extending his winning streak of feature wins to five in the Zimmer’s Service Center ULMS/ New Motors Super Late Models and four in the Bonnell’s Auto Group RUSH Late Models.
Blair is the current points leader at both Eriez Speedway and the ULMS.
Gary Eicher extended his victory record with a third win in the last four Waterford Hotel E-Mod features while past Champion Chris McGuire prevailed to win the Curtze Food Service Street Stock night-capper, his second of the season.
Eric Reinwald held off a fast-charging Kyle Miller to collect his first win of the season while Tyler Walters collected the first-ever feature win of his career in the L&D Tree Service Challenger finale.
The night was punctuated by two wild flips, the first by Steve Kania who got into the back-straight wall after contact from another car on the first lap of the first heat, traveling up the wall, spiraling in air then landing on the track and rolling into his roof.
Then, Wes Stull went for a hard two-and-a-half roll tumble in the second L&D Tree Service Challenger heat after contact with another car then the front straight wall.
