BECH­TELSVILLE » It was a down to the check­ered flag bat­tle for the top spot with Scott Lutz get­ting the edge over Tommy Car­berry, Jr. on the fi­nal lap as Car­berry bounced off the wall bring­ing out the cau­tion flag. Lutz was able to earn the vic­tory in the 25lap Mid-At­lantic Sprint Se­ries fea­ture race at Grand­view Speed­way Satur­day night. The race, start­ing 24 Sprint cars, marked the first ap­pear­ance for the MASS Sprint­ers at the Bech­telsville oval. Un­for­tu­nately rain forced post­pone­ment of the TP Trail­ers 358 Mod­i­fieds and Sports­man fea­ture races that were sched­uled to be part of Bech­telsville Car Wash Night.

The Mod­i­fied fea­ture will be added to the Satur­day, July 1st Fire­cracker Night while the Sports­man fea­ture will be added to the July 8th four di­vi­sion show.

Vet­eran Mark Bit­ner was able to grab a close sec­ond to Lutz in the Sprint fea­ture. Tim Tan­ner fin­ished third fol­lowed by Austin Bishop and Dave Brown.
