By Ken de la Bastide

(June 8, 2013) - Alexandria veteran John Robbins swept Legends racing action at Anderson Speedway last Saturday in commanding fashion.

Aaron Holden took the lead in the early stages of the feature event, but Robbins and teammate Mark Dietzen were the drivers on the move. Both passed Mike Carroll on the second lap.

Robbins took command of the race on lap 5 with an inside pass of Holden entering turn three. Holden continued to remain close to Robbins rear bumper until lap 13 when he spun exiting the second corner. Two laps later Holden made contact with the turn two retaining wall.

Robbins went on to score his third feature win of the season with teammate Dietzen finishing second, followed by Carroll.It was almost the same story line in the heat race with Robbins passing Carroll on the second lap entering turn three with an inside move. From there he went on to record the victory.

 Dietzen, who has also passed Carroll on the second lap, was passed by Holden on the front straight in the low groove to finish second.

Robbins set quick time during qualifications with a lap of 14.133-seconds, which edged out Holden who turned a lap of 14.201-seconds.
