DOUBLE WIN WEEK INCLUDES WORLD OF OUTLAWS WIN
by Brad Vores
Greg captured his first win in a 360 sprint car this season after driving to the win in Wednesday night's Night of Wings at Bridgeport Speedway. He led the entire distance in scoring the win in a race promoted by his car owner Mike Heffner.
Thursday night, the 27 team headed to Lincoln Speedway for its World of Outlaw show. Greg dropped from the event after an incident on a double file restart while running 11th. He was credited with 20th place.
Greg was back in winning form Friday night as the Outlaws invaded Williams Grove for the Summer Nationals. He timed second on the night, won his heat and then started fourth in the 25-lap feature. He would track down the leader with 17 laps complete and drove to his 55th career Williams Grove win, sixth 410 sprint car win of the season and first Outlaw win in several years.
A bad pill draw put the team behind early in Saturday's Summer Nationals where Greg timed 28th and really could never make up any ground. After sitting through a three hour rain delay, Greg would qualify via the B-Main and then drove from 23rd to finish 16th in the 30-lap feature. It was a good points weekend for the Heffner Racing team as Greg took over the point lead by 150 points.
