Fresh off his 10th-place finish in the United Speed Alliance Racing (USAR) Hooters Pro Cup Northern Division race at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Va., super late model driver Tim Bainey Jr. of Osceola Mills will make his return to Jennerstown Speedway tonight.

Bainey will be shooting for a repeat performance of his last appearance at the half-mile asphalt Laurel Highlands oval when he was the surprise winner of the feature back in May.

“Our team really enjoys competing at Jennerstown,” said Bainey. “We’ve been so tied up with our Hooters Pro Cup program and various sponsor appearances that it has been tough for us to make it back down.”

Bainey is just one of five different drivers who has tasted the fruits of Victory Lane.

Former track champion Garry Wiltrout broke the ice last weekend, after suffering through a myriad of mechanical woes early in the season.

“He’s been struggling but two weeks ago he got a second and last week he got the win,” Jennerstown General Manager Larry Mattingly said about Wiltrout.

Barry Awtey of Jenners, Mark Poole of Eighty-Four, Mark Smith of Meyersdale and Bobby Henry of Connellsville rounded out the top five.

The hottest driver in the super late model division the past month has been Lebanon County teenager Kyle Martel, who has accounted for two convincing victories with his crate-engine machine.

Martel got caught up in a wild melee on the front straight last Saturday which saw the car of veteran driver Jeff Dunmyer climb on top of Martel’s No. 59. Dunmyer’s car then rolled on to its roof.

“The car looked worse than it was,” said crew chief Bill Martel, who is also Kyle’s father.
