Aucker Takes Point Lead With Third Micro Win Of The Year
SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Nick Aucker of Selinsgrove drove to his third win of the season in Friday night’s 20-lap 270 micro sprint car main event at Selinsgrove Raceway Park and with the victory took over the points lead in the chase for the 2014 track championship.
Entering Friday night’s race, three-time winner and defending champion Tyler Snook of Beavertown was the leader in the standings by just 10 points over Aucker. However, misfortune struck Snook, who started the feature in the second position, on the sixth lap when his car developed mechanical problems while leading.
Third-place starter Aucker, who was racing second at the time, inherited the lead and drove to a convincing win over fourth-place starter Brandon Edgar. Eighth-place starter Andy Knouse worked his way into a solid third place finish, while Derek Miller and Cody Hauck rounded out the top five.
Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present the Neal Aucker Memorial for 270 micro sprint cars at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 1, featuring a 30-lap tribute race paying $800 to win. A $100 bonus has also been posted for the second- and third-place finishers in the main event. Aucker, father of micro sprint racer Nick Aucker, passed away on April 8 of this year following a courageous battle with cancer. The go karts will also be on the racing card.
