Trio of brand new victory lane faces at Skyline
BLODGETT MILLS — Mark Effner, Rich Michael Jr. and Tyler Yeagle all ended up in victory lane for the first time this racing season at Skyline Raceway Park on Saturday night.
Effner, who has enjoyed a stellar career competing in the Street Stock Division throughout the state, captured his first open wheel victory by winning the Open Sportsman Division.
Michael Jr. was also in transition mode, as the former UMP Modified driver made the switch to the IMCA Modified Division a successful one with a victory in only his second appearance at Skyline.
Yeagle broke through leading the way in the Street Stock Division, his first Skyline triumph.
Also on the racing card, Andrew Smith took a big step toward the 2015 WXM Auto Sales Crate Sportsman Championship with his eighth win of the season, while Buck Mills continued his domination of the Stock Car class with his 12th win of the season. Rich Wagner won the regularly scheduled Four Cylinder feature while Bobby Wagner won the rain-postponed feature from the previous week in that division.
Smith, known as “The Lockport Lazer,” continued his domination of the WXM Auto Sales Crate Sportsman to earn the $800 winner’s share of the purse.
