Jeffersonville Sportsdrome: 18th Annual Xtreme Figure 8 Mania Twin 45’s Championship
On Saturday, August 5th, the Sportsdrome gave fans an especially exciting night of racing with the Late Model Figure 8 cars. The track can legitimately claim many of the top figure 8 racers in this region and they never disappoint. The format for this evening’s races made it even better as the 23 drivers ran two forty-five lap “feature” races.
Qualifying times determined starting positions in the first race. Starting positions were inverted for the second race. Winning order was determined by combining finishing positions for both races. Top qualifier Gerry Isgrigg, in Car #1, was the overall winner by beating the field to the finish line in the first race and then charging from the back to place second in the inverted start, final forty-five lapper. Isgrigg had plenty challengers! After positions were combined for the two races, Chris Harmon placed second, followed by Danny Smith, Zeke Skaggs, Artie Ware and Rick Heine.
The top five finishers in the first 45-lapper were #1 Gerry Isgrigg, #38 Artie Ware, #6 Chris Harmon, #35 Mark Harmon and #80 Butch Winters. The second race saw this five leading the field: #6 Chris Harmon, #1 Gerry Isgrigg, #23 Danny Smith, #41 Zeke Skaggs, and #27 Rick Heine.
