Curtis Runs Away With Win, Hearts

The final feature of the evening was the MCR Dwarf Car Series making their second and final appearance of the 2012 season. Jim Miller would lead the field down to the green flag to start things off for the 25-lap feature. His time up front would be short lived as Eric Hawk Jr. leading the next time around. The field would be furiously racing around the Speedway, two, three and four wide at certain points, as the drivers sliced and diced, inches apart as they sailed off into the corners. Rob Roney would work his way up to take the point on lap four, but he would soon have his hands full with Craig Curtis. Curtis would take the point on lap eight. Roney would hang with him though, with Curtis only breaking free through masterful use of lapped traffic to trap Roney, and allow for the St. Johns, Michigan driver to take the win. And that wasn’t all the success Curtis would have. In D and L Auto Sales victory lane, Curtis would drop to one knee and propose to girlfriend Janelle, and got the yes! Roney was second with Stephen Bobek, Eric Hoffman and Jon Wylie completing the top five. Heat race wins were claimed by Todd Getz and Wylie, while Roney took the four car dash. Roney also set the mark in qualifying, turning a 16.248.
