Rebuilt Motor Was All Euculano Needed
HANOVER, Pa. – A rebuilt motor did the trick for Zach Euculano in Friday night’s 358 sprint-car feature at Trail-Way Speedway.
For the second straight week, scheduled polesitter Rick Horn dropped to the infield while lining up for the feature. That put Euculano on the pole, and he led every lap. But lapped traffic kept the outcome in doubt until the end.
“We’ve been having trouble with the motor and just got this car back together last night,” said Euculano. “If it wouldn’t be for my grandfather (former sprint-car driver Larry Shive), I wouldn’t be here.”
One-time winner Shane Hoff held off defending champ Jeff Rohrbaugh for second, with Tim Wagaman and Mike Bittinger completing the top five.
Dan Furman took the lead from polesitter Johnny Palm on lap two and drove away to his third win of the year in the 20-lap Extreme Stock feature.
Nick McDaniel scored the win in the 15-lap limited stock feature. McDaniel started third and took the lead from polesitter Ryan Smith on lap three.
