School's Out! It was Family Fun Night, Tuesday evening at Don Martin's
Lernerville Speedway, where everyone had their spot in the limelight: Mom &
Dad were in the School Bus Races, Grandpa was in the Zoresco's Equipment
Senior Series and the "kids" were in the Ferraccio Family Markets' Bike
Races. Winning the Summer Vacation School Bus Races was Bob Egley of
Kittanning in the #3 Goodwrench Bat Bus; Highlands school bus driver Cindy
Ehrmantrout of Fawn Township advanced to the "head of the class" in the
Powder Puff School Bus Race, and Dan Bauman, Saxonburg, won his very first
Senior Series victory. The "survivor in the Demo Derby was Andy Bordt of
Sewickley with Brad Gamble placing second.

"Batman" Bob Egley leaves Gotham City for a 15-lap Summer Vacation win in
Sarver's School Bus Races. Egley soared from the fourth spot to overtake Bob
Clepper' #99"Terminator" bus on lap two, and stayed in command for three
laps. On lap four KDKA's Ed Schaefer's bus rolled over. He was not injured
but his bus was expelled from the track. When the race resumed on lap five,
Clepper ranked number one again, holding the lead until lap nine. On lap ten,
approaching lapped traffic; Egley elegantly used the correct line to divide
the competition and rise to the top of the class, remaining there ahead of
Clepper to the checker. Steve Hitrik claimed third and was followed by Bill
Gordon John Myers, Dave Zenbrzuski, Ron Ehrman, Rocket Ron Ehrman, Sammy
Duncan and John Mollick. Gordon, Bill Clepper and Tony Burke were the
qualifying winners.

Danny Bauman beat the best in Senior Series action! Holding the hard
charger Terry Wheeler at bay, Bauman drove an excellent race to win a career
first in the Pittsburgh Circle Track Club Zoresco Senior Series. Bauman and
his wife Helen also were celebrating their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.
Wheeler was in charge for eight circuits, when Bauman came from seventh to
overtake the top spot on lap ten. Once in front the poised Bauman, who last
raced competitively in 1980, withstood all intimidation to cruise to victory
in the Doug Graham owned racer. Runner-up Wheeler finished ahead of Ed
Bashaar. Don Gamble came from the rear of the field twice to place fourth.
Five through ten went to Sid Haus, Bud Holben, Ron Spangler, William Reges,
**** Curry, and Bob Lupienski. Gamble and Bauman won the heat races.

W.L Roenigk school bus driver Cindy Ehremantrout left Highlands School
District for the season and put her driving skills to the test at
Lernerville. She got an "A" as she collected the Powder Puff School Bus
victory, her career second.
Leading all the way, Ehremantrout drove an impeccable race to defeat Rose
Spithaler, Shirley Garing, and Angela Anthony.
