Grant Fritz/Greg Dietzen Memorial and Sullivan RV CRA Late Model Sportsman Headline Saturday Program

(August 24, 2011) – Anderson Speedway returns to racing action on Saturday, August 27 with the Grant Fritz/Greg Dietzen Memorial featuring the Legends and Sullivan RV CRA Late Model Sportsman headlining the program. Other divisions in action include WMDH ThunderCars and Front Wheel Drives Oval.

Last year, Tennessee driver David Moyes III continued his dominance in the Grant Fritz/Greg Dietzen Memorial recording his third consecutive victory last August.

Moyes, who set fast time during qualifications, ran in the tire tracks of Travis Braden for most of the middle stages of the race and when lapped traffic presented him with the opportunity, he powered into the lead.

With Braden and Moyes closing on the lapped car of Nick Wilson, the two leaders split Wilson entering turn three on lap 68. Moyes went low and Braden used the high line, but it was Moyes exiting the corner in the lead.

At the finish it was Moyes winning by less than a straight away with Braden, Robbins, Andrea Hans and Chris Weddle rounding out the top five.

The Sullivan RV CRA Late Model Sportsman will compete in a 75-lap event on Saturday night. In the most recent event at Anderson, for the second time this season Keith Sterkowitz captured the feature taking the lead on lap 66 with an outside pass of Terry Cater.

Sterkowitz won by 2.1 seconds over Cater with Charlie Hanna coming home in third.

Jason Atkinson’s lead has been cut to seven points over Sterkowitz after series adjusted points were each team gets to drop their worse finish of the 2011 season towards the Season Championship. Counting Saturday’s race, the series still has four events left on the schedule. Two-time defending series Champion Charlie Hanna is currently third in series points. He is 61 points behind Sterkowitz. Mark Lambert and Brett Robinson round out the top five.

The WMDH ThunderCars division continues to showcase the best points battle at Anderson Speedway with just 31points separating leading Hannah Lundy and second ranked Lonny Burton. The remainder of the top five includes Rob Allman, Ronnie Rose and Rob Noel.

Jeff Williams holds a comfortable advantage in the Front Wheel Drive Oval division with Ron Phipps in second spot. Third is Trevin Henson with Paul Phipps and Marshall Clark filling out the top five.

On Saturday, spectator gates open at 5 p.m. with the racing beginning at 8. Admission is $10 for adults and $4 for kids ages 6-12. Children five and under get in free.
