Seven race divisions set for Saturday

By Michael Knight

Saturday night, July 14, should be an exciting night at Lancaster Motor Speedway with seven divisions competing in the Vintage Venegance part 2.
During this special race, the No. 45 Purple Mustang of Marty Spittle will have to start in the rear of the field after winning three in a row. Spittle charged from the rear of the field Saturday night on his way to winning his third straight.
Other drivers going for three in a row will be Stock 4 driver Evan Thomas, who is having a career year best this year, having picked up his eighth win in the 2012 racing season Saturday.
He will be going for his third straight win on Saturday.
David Laney has picked up two straight wins in the FWD/UCAR division and will be going for three in a row on Saturday.
Laney said he would like to thank Good Guys Automotive and Carolina Collision, both of Lancaster, for their support.
Fans, if you haven’t been staying to watch the FWD/UCAR main event then you have been missing some of the best racing LMS has to offer this year.
