Wise Surprises To Win Grove Sprint Opener

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — The one-month delay to get the season opener in the books at Williams Grove Speedway was well worth the wait as both sprint car divisions turned in exciting main events on Friday night with invader Zeb Wise scoring the upset victory in the 410 division. Macri then began making time on the leader while blasting the top side in the first and second turns and by lap 17 the leaders were under a blanket racing through traffic. When Macri went high through the first and second corner, Wise blasted low into the turns and as a lapped car held up Macri the door was open for Wise. Wise took the $5,000 victory by .182 seconds over Macri with Rahmer riding home in third and he picked up a $500 bonus thanks to the WC Eshenaur last-lap pass award. In the 20-lap 358 sprint feature, polesitter Chase Gutshall led the first four circuits before Kody Hartlaub would race into the lead.
