Oakes Wins Mike Farr Memorial At Eriez
HAMMETT, Pa. — The Mike Farr Memorial was run Sunday at Eriez Speedway for the New Motors Super Late Models on the 58th anniversary of the first race ever run at Eriez.
The race was 41 laps with the winner’s purse $4,100.
Raised in the Erie area, Farr was a huge figure in local racing, first as a top “Sportsman” (coupe) driver, then as a shock distributor after leaving the area and living in the Atlanta region.
Greg Oakes led the entire distance, albeit with a constant three-way battle with Alex Ferree and Chad Wright, at times side by side.
In other action, Max Blair triumphed in the Bonnell’s Auto Group RUSH Late Model feature, coming from seventh on the grid. Casey Bowers dominated the Waterford Hotel E-Mods, leading from green flag to checkered flag. Former champion Chris McGuire led the distance in the Curtze Food Service Street Stock finale under constant pressure from defending champion John Boardman. Kyle Miller picked up his fourth Johnson’s Car Care and Collision Economod feature, strengthening his points lead. Willie Van Guilder won his second L&D Challengers feature in a row to conclude the evening.
