It's a twister auntie Em - that's quite possibly what the competition was thinking last weekend at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania. Although thunderstorms and tornado warning have been known to postpone races at Lincoln, this time around the extreme turbulence came from the track, a result of Mark Bitner, the Sprint Car racer from Trenton, New Jersey spinning to a group victory at the three-eighths mile, high banked, clay oval track.
Mark Bitner flat-out dominated the URC race at Lincoln Speedway, grabbing the lead by lap five and never looking back.
"We were running a 360 Sprint Car and we started last in the heat race, in a field of eight, and we advanced to second in the first lap, and we finished the race there," said Bitner.
In the feature Bitner started in fourth position, and with a little more racing razzle-dazzle, he nabbed the lead by lap five and ran away with the race. "I guess you could say we dominated the race," remarked an understated Bitner.
"I would definitely credit some of our success to having run with the United States Auto Club (USAC) back in June. The track was slick and we used some of the same set-up options we learned while running with those guys."
Twister Motorsports has been running a minimal schedule with the United Racing Company (URC), mostly the team runs 410 Sprints and Super-Sportsman, and so this win fits nicely into their bonus win category.
"We all thoroughly enjoyed running the USAC Eastern Storm week too, which consisted of four races in Pennsylvania and New Jersey all within five days. We raced hard and finished in the money every night," adds Bitner.
Bitner credits K&N for helping the team with their success. "Our K&N products have been excellent! There's a K&N air filter system on our dually which gets us to every race. K&N air filters are also on our URC, 410 and Super-Sportsman cars, as well as on our unlimited ice quad and our Outlaw Street Stock that we are taking out next week. K&N products have always been extremely reliable and effective. Thanks for everything."
