There is BONUS BUCS for the fifteenth annual Earl and David Bauman
Memorial Gumout Sprint Car Classic at Lernerville, Friday, August 31st that
pays $5,000 to win! Any driver who wins the Gumout Sprint Classic and is not
a World of Outlaws Gumout Support driver will be awarded an additional $500
by #1 Cochran Automotive. In memory of their son, the late Sprint car driver,
Spanky Lewis, Jack and "Pete" Lewis will present $500 to the leader of lap
18. Eighteen was the number of Spanky's Sprint. Conceivably, a non-Gumout
driver winning and leading lap 18 could pocket $6,000 for this event.
Buffalo Plaza's MOR Jewelers will be presenting a Bulova watch to the winner
and the highest local Lernerville finisher in the 35-lap event. A 20-lap
Dingbat's Restaurant Pure Stock Invitational, awarding $450 to the victor
will also share the racing card. Racing begins art 8:00pm with time trials
starting at 7:15 on MOR Jewelers Night. Pit gates open at 4:00 and
grandstands 5:00.
The hottest sprint car driver in the nation continued his streak Saturday
night at Huset's Speedway in Branden, South Dakota. Shane Stewart, driving
the Holbrook Motorsports 8H, picked up his fourth consecutive World of Outlaws
Gumout Series win and also captured the annual Gold Cup held at Huset's. It
was Stewart's fifth Gumout Series win of the season. The Bixby, Oklahoma hot
shoe accomplished his amazing streak the week after the Knoxville Nationals,
almost the same dominating way that Craig Dollansky did last year on his way
to the Gumout Series championship. Stewart led an unbelievable 117 out of a
possible 135 A Main laps, and picked up $20,000 in winnings for the week.
Stewart also captured two heat race wins and four Weld Racing Dashes along
the way.
Local favorites Ed Lynch Jr and Ralph Spithaler also had a good showing
at the Knoxville Nationals and their wins at Lernerville total six.
Deadlocked at 455 in the run for the 2001 Point Championship is Jimmy Hawley
with seven victories and Rod George with one. George has a remarkable 11 top
four finishes. The Keystone state is proud of their of outstanding talented
Sprint drivers. Don't be surprised if one of them appears in victory circle
this year.
Be there, Friday, August 31, at 8:00pm to see another "great show on
dirt," and also to honor two very special friends of racing, Earl and David
Bauman. Last year's show was a barnburner! This promises to be another
exciting quality production for you!
