Dissinger gets late night victory

Dave Dissinger wins Pro.

Everyone at Maple Grove Raceway on Saturday worked the late shift. Racing wasn’t completed until curfew was looming, but Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail 15 was finished with a few minutes to spare.

For the most part.

Winners were crowned in six of seven eliminators. The only one that didn’t send a victor to PPC Lubricants Victory Lane was Goldrush Trailers Super, which was stopped after three rounds due to track conditions after the air temperature dropped. More >
