Butler Does It Aagain

Unread post by PrairieDirt » Fri Aug 03, 2012 9:03 pm

Greg Cybulski, WINNIPEG, MB (August 2, 2012)For the second time this season, Wally Butler swept both his heat race and the Northern Lightning Sprint Association feature at Red River Co-op Speedway on Thursday night. On the first occasion, back on June 25, Butler's #35W Lightning Sprint made a clean sweep as well.

Coincidentally, the second place car in both features was the #2 Sprinter of 2-time NLSA champion Roland Bernard.

Plenty of passing was taking place as the top 5 finishers all worked their way to the front. The hard charger of the night was Amber Balcaen as she raced her way up, from the tail of the field, to earn a very respectable 4th place finish.

Rounding up the evening's top 5 were Wally Butler, Roland Bernard, Chris Sorin, Amber Balcaen and Dylan Sabatini.

Next scheduled racing action for the NLSA will be Friday, August 10 at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

The next scheduled NLSA racing at Red River Co-op Speedway will be Thursday, August 16 at 7:30pm.
