A WIN AND TWO MORE TOP THREE FINISHES
by Brad Vores
Back in Central PA after spending last week in Knoxville, Iowa, Greg and the Heffner Racing Enterprises team had another impressive weekend.
Action kicked off Friday with Twin 20s at Williams Grove where Greg would start 6th in race one and brought the Lelands.com, Trone Outdoor, Eagle Steel #27 home in third.
With a six car invert for race two, Greg lined up fourth and used the high line to track down the leader on lap 11, drove by and drove off for his 56th career Grove win and third of the season. After losing the point lead while racing in Iowa, Greg knocked off 60 points heading into this weekend.
The team was back at Port Royal Speedway Saturday where Greg started sixth and finished in the runner-up spot in a race that went non stop for the final 24 laps.
Looking back at Knoxville, Greg had a good run going in the Friday night (rained out from Wednesday) A-Main, where he moved from 11th to seventh at one point. A broken shock would lead to losing five spots on a late race restart, resulting in a 12th place finish. More importantly, those loss of positions were 10 points which would have been good enough for a front row starting spot in Saturday night's B-Main to a 10th place starting spot instead. Greg drove up to fifth at the checkered flag, falling one spot shy of making it into the Nationals A-Main.
