Ziehl and Wood Eggcellent in Easter Eggstravaganza
Kevin Montgomery Peoria, ARIZ (April 7, 2012) – Four time and defending ASCS Southwest region champion Rick Ziehl entered Saturday’s 2nd Annual Eggstravaganza at Canyon Speedway Park trailing in the 2012 Southwest points chase.
Drawing the pole position for the 25 lap ASCS Southwest main event, Ziehl immediately checked out aboard the Bay Hayes Motorsports and Ei22 sponsored no. 20z.
A pair of late race stoppages grew the possibility of a challenge, but Ziehl sped both away, cruising to his 1st ASCS Southwest victory of the 2012 campaign and keeping Southwest loot out of the Grand Canyon State for the fifth time in 5 events thus far in the campaign.
Bob Ream Jr. crossed the finish line with runner up honors, with Mike Martin taking the show position with J.T. Imperial and Josh Pelkey rounding out the top five.
DJ Wood capitalized on lapped traffic to make his way to the front from deep in the field to capture the 25-lap IMCA Modified feature while “Racin” Jason Noll over came earlier mechanical woes and was able to make a spectacular drive from the sixth row crossing the stripe just behind Wood.
A hard charging Cody Center filled the podium with Steve Stultz and JC Parmeley completing the top five.
Matt Martinez held off Chris McCurdy and Jody Henderson to take the CSP Pure Stock opener while “The Outlaw” Matt Lundy gunned down his first ever Challenge Cup Sprint Car win.
John Romero was victorious in Bomber Mania with Greg Loper topping a huge field of Dwarf Cars.
