September 1, 2013 - Bobby Layne made the most of his trip to Colorado by picking up the main event victory Saturday, September 1st at I-76 Speedway. Starting from the 3rd spot Bobby got the lead early in the going and was on a rail around the bottom. Challenged for most of the race by 2012 RMLSA Champion Brent Rees making one of his few events this year and the #2 of Bob Harr was in the mix all race as well. It looked as if Rees would get Layne with just a few laps to go but a caution came out and shuffled him back to 2nd. Then on the restart Rees had a big run on the outside but there was nothing up high and Harr was able to sneak under him while Layne went on to the win. Ullery and pribbenow rounded out the top 5.

Starting for the 7th spot in the main event Jeff Gieg quickly got to the front with Troy Simpson right behind. As the race progressed it was clear Jeff had everybody covered and cruised to his second victory in a row. Only one caution made for a very rapid race.

Jeff Gieg picked up his 2nd win on the season and
snaps the streak of 5 different winners in the first 5 weeks. 16 Lightning
Sprints pulled in to the gates as part of an incredible 142 cars total at
I-76 Speedway. BST Promotions and I-76 Speedweay
put on an impressive show as the 3rd and final leg of The Independence Day
Challenge Cup was held. It was a hot and humid day and with all those cars
Butch was able to prepare an awesome track.

Heat Race #2
– Jeff Gieg, Troy Simpson, Bob Harr,
Paul Babich, Auston Pribbenow, Scott Wilson, Steve
Becker, Troy Ullery DNF.
After a long
night with a ton of races the main event lined up just as the heats finished
as TJ Worcester drew a 0 for the inversion placing him on the pole and Gieg on the outside. A torrid start Worcester jumped to
the lead with Gieg hot on his bumper. A caution for
a spin by Fernandez in turn 2 slowed the field. On the insuing
restart Babich spun in turn 2 as well. Another restart and Worcesters’ car stumbled and Geig
got a great start and after another late caution as Martinez and Heikes got together Gieg was
never challenged. Complete results will be posted as soon as they are
