Begg Clinches Championship

The next feature on the track would be the Economy Print and Graphics / Chet’s Auto Service Sportsmen, running a 25-lap main event. Four-time Dixie Motor Speedway Champion Don Riley lead the field down to chief starter Jeremy Slayden’s green flag. Jon Giffel would get a run on the outside, claiming the top spot, and soon after, he would have his hands full with current points leader, Chris Begg. The two drivers would battle side by side for several laps, exchanging the lead multiple times, until Begg finally broke free from Giffel and began to pull away. Begg would manage to maintain his torrid pace as he went on to take the win. Jon Giffel would be second with Vinnie Miller, Kevin Harder and Travis Skarvi rounding out the top five. Nick Burd and Giffel took heat race wins with Jimmy Stratton setting the mark in qualifying with a 17.214. by virtue of his win, Chris Begg would clinch the 2012 Track Championship.
