White Victorious in Novice Sportsman

By Tim Baltz

The Novice Sportsman saw Brian McGinley jump out to a quick lead with 15 year old Okwari White chasing him from the runner up position. McGinley would lead the opening 4 laps until a scary moment in turn 1 saw last weeks winner Kurt Russell tangle with Regi Castelle sending his car into a series of violent flips. After some tense moments Russell would climb from his destroyed car under his own power and would be ok. When the green flew Brian McGinley held the lead but Okwari White had other plans. White would slip by to take over the top spot with McGinley falling to 2nd and Dana Francis completing the top 3. Over the final laps Dana Francis would get by for 2nd and tried everything to get by White. At the finish Okwari White would hold on for good as he claimed his first ever Novice Sportsman win. Dana Francis would hold o for 2nd with McGinley 3rd, Melvin Rush and Thomas Jock III rounding out the top 5.
