Saylorsburg, PA., July 14th, 2012: Sixty five year old Bill Force Sr. was racing long before Danny Berlitz was born but this day these two racers lives interconnected in a big way with Force winning his first TQ feature event at Borgers and Berlitz doing the same in the AllStar Slingshots.

With the paving of Borgers Speedway this past winter racing was starting from the ground up. We know it will be a long haul and one of our goals is to recreat the racing that happened years ago at the Pine Brook Speedway. In the past month Pine Brook veteran Don Zrinski won two TQ feature events and now it was another verteren Bill Force Sr. to do the same.

In Hoosier Racing tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints Don Zrinski made it first to turn one followed by Blu Metz and Force. The caution waved on lap two as Metz and Zrinski got together in turn one. On the restart Metz took the lead followed by Force. Metz held the lead until two to go when Force made the pass for the lead and the win. Force took his first win followed by Metz and Zrinski.

The drop of the green in the AllStar Slingshot feature saw pole sitter Danny Berlitz win the sprint to turn two followed by his father Dan Berlitz and Scott Dinin.

Soon the son and father hooked up in a side by side battle for the lead. Scott Dinin was to have none of this and soon joined the hunt. As Danny opened a slight lead over his father contact was made with Dan Berlitz and Dinin. Dinin took over second spot with his sights set on Danny Berlitz and took the lead on lap ten. Dinin held the lead until five to go when Danny Berlitz made the pass for the lead and took starter Mike Eckhardt’s checkered flag. Dinin was a close second followed by Dan Berlitz.

Hoosier Racing Wingles 600 Sprints saw Rob Vivona continue his winning ways. Vivona led from the pole followed by Matt Janisch and Mike Fillbrunn. Matt Janisch took the lead on lap two but Vivona regained the lead on lap eight and took the win followed by Fillbrunn and Janisch.

BJ Scherff won the Hoosier Racint tires XCEL 600 Modifieds.
