The UDTRA Pro Dirt Car Series invaded the West Liberty Raceway this
past Tuesday night.
The current UDTRA points leader, Rick Eckert from York, PA, who spent
most of the day in bed with the flu, jumped into the early lead and took
command of the race. He would pull out to almost a 1/2 lap advantage on
extended green flag runs.
Steve Francis of Ashland, KY and Scott Bloomquist, last years winner
of the West Liberty UDTRA race, of Mooresburg, TN, battled for the 2nd
spot throughout the race until a lap 41 caution, when Francis was forced
to retire to the pits with a broken tie rod. Late in the race, Bob
Pierce of Oakwood, IL pulled up on Bloomquist's rear bumper but was
unable to get around the 0 car.
Crossing under the checkers behind Eckert and Bloomquist were Pierce,
Steve Boley of West Liberty, IA, who had the fast time of 20.023 and
Brian Birkhofer of Muscatine, IA.
