Greg Schaefer Gives Veteran RMMRA Owner his First Midget Feature Win 

                         

 

Calhan, CO (July 19, 2014) - Veteran open wheel driver Greg Schaefer gave RMMRA owner Cappy Mason his first midget "A" feature win on Saturday night at El Paso County Speedway! A strong field of cars traveled to EPCS the night of the El Paso County Fair. With a large crowd on hand, heat race action began on the 1/4 mile dirt track with wins taken by Chris Sheil and Keith Rauch.

After the heat races, and a speed dice roll of "three" the first three rows inverted to begin the main event with front row starters Greg Schaefer and returning midget driver Troy Ullery. At the green, Schaefer shot to the front and set the pace. About half way through, the first caution came out between turns one and two involving Bob Harr and Troy Ullery. A few laps later the race was once again halted with Randy Oerter flipping between turns three and four. Randy escaped injury but the damage to his car prevented him from continuing. The field restarted with Greg Schaefer once again shooting to the front. He continued his pace on his way to his 1st victory of the season! At the finish, it was Greg Schaefer, Tony Rossi, Chris Sheil, Keith Rauch, and Mark Bensenberg with a strong run rounding out the top 5 spots.   

The complete results are as follows:
Heat One (8 laps) - 1. Chris Sheil, 2. Tony Rossi, 3. Greg Schaefer, 4. Ryan Oerter, 5. Bob Harr, 6. Mark Bensenberg, 7. Larry Bensenberg (DNS)
