Can Steven Drevicki do it again?
Mother Nature has wreaked havoc on the 2014 American Racing Drivers Club schedule so far this season.
After weather forced the cancellation of the second and third show on the schedule – Williams Grove and Grandview – ARDC will return to the New Egypt Speedway where they opened the season in mid-April.
With seven time NES winner, Steve Buckwalter fulfilling 410 Sprint Car obligations in central PA, the Winner’s Circle will be up for grabs this weekend. Steven Drevicki drove his brand new Elite Chassis #19 to the checkered flag and the win in the season opener. Will he be able to put what he learned to use when ARDC returns this Saturday to the home of Thunder in the Pines?
There will be plenty of competition for Drevicki when the green flag waves. 2013 ARDC Champion, Trevor Kobylarz was sidelined from the opener after an incident early in the race. Alex Bright was a race leader until engine issues sent him to the pits prematurely. Brenden Bright finished second to Drevicki and will be looking to improve his finish by one position on ARDC’s return to NES. Kyle Lick, Tony DiMattia and Brett Wanner rounded out the top five during the season opener, giving each driver his best NES finish to date. Bruce Buckwalter Jr. made some late race moves, just missing a top five finish. Rookie, Tommy Kunsman had an impressive first outing with ARDC with a strong seventh finish. ARDC regulars, Brett Arndt, PJ Gargiulo, Ryan Greth and Nick Wean will be in the hunt before the checkered flag waves. Jim Radney made his first start with ARDC at NES last season and drove to a top five finish in his debut. The possibilities are endless!
Whatever the outcome, racing fans can be assured that there will be plenty of “three wide and side by side racing” that has become the trademark of the wingless warriors of ARDC midgets!
