Blake Rowe Narrows the Gap with Second Feature Win!

6-28-14 – The Economy Print & Graphics Sportsman Division point’s battle is tightening up! Going into the June 28th event there was a tie for the lead between Kevin Cremonesi and Chris Begg. Blake Rowe was several positions back and appeared to be effectively out of the Championship race. The never give up attitude of the #57 team came to the forefront during the 25 Lap Feature Event as Rowe and Begg started at the rear of the 11 car field. Eric Olsen led the race early with Travis Skarvi and Cole Landau applying pressure. On lap #5, Skarvi took over the lead and Olsen was shuffled back to fourth while the hard charging, Blake Rowe, moved into second place. Adam Rowe, driving double-duty, moved into third and Landau was running fifth. On lap #10 Blake took the lead from Skarvi and held off the challenges of Chris Begg, Adam Rowe, Travis Skarvi and Kevin Cremonesi. The fourth and final caution came out with just two laps to go and it provided a wild finish! Blake Rowe chose the outside for the final restart and Chris Begg was forced to the bottom. Begg pressured B Rowe by diving to the bottom in the corners in an effort to get underneath but Blake never faltered and it was a near photo finish at the line! Tom Stone took advantage of the late caution to finish third. Eric Olsen would hold down the fourth position and Adam Rowe finished fifth. Cremonesi and Skarvi won the heats and for the fourth week in a row, Chris Begg was the fast qualifier.
