Ryan Greth has been fast, real fast all season long. Weather it would be with ARDC or with the USAC National Midget tour, Greth has opened eyes with his ability to wheel a midget. Although the Hyper Racing, WSL inc. number four has been fast, the results have not shown that. Blown motors, flat tires, crashes and numerous other mechanical failures have been the norm for the team. That would change Saturday night at Susquehanna Speedway as Greth would take advantage of a front row starting spot and lead all twenty laps to take his first Auto Bahn Indoor Speedway ARDC presented by Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic win of the season.
Trevor Kobylarz and Greth would lead the field to the green but before a lap would be completed Alex Bright, who was driving the Gargiulo Racing number five, spun between turns one and two to bring out the caution.
On the restart Greth would pull by Kobylarz on the back stretch to take the lead and begin to set the pace.
Brenden Bright, who came into the night second in ARDC midget points, drove by Kobylarz on the high side but a yellow flag would put him back to third. Bright who has dominated competition this year at Susky, saw his chances at a win and possibly a championship go up in smoke as the engine in the number ninety-two expired on the next restart.
Greth continued to use the top side to lead the field with Kobylarz staying within striking distance and Alex Bright working his was back to third after his spin. With three laps to go the Cafe Waldorf, Becker Painting number fourteen started to catch the leader with Bright reeling them both in. Alex would make the first move pulling a slider on Kobylarz in turns three and four to take second and set his sights on race long leader Greth.
Alex Bright wouldn’t have enough to catch the black with green lettering in honor of Bryan Clauson number four as Ryan Greth would park it on the front stretch at Susquehanna.
