GRAND FORKS, ND (September 12) - The Lightening Sprint Car feature came down to two drivers who already have River Cities Speedway feature wins in their regular classes; Ward Imrie who won the Aug. 22 WISSOTA Modified special, and Thomas Kennedy, who won the Aug. 15 NOSA Outlaw Sprint Car event.
For nearly the entire event the two drivers paced the field of 18 Lightening Sprints. Imrie drove the #35W right next to the berm on the bottom of the speedway, while Kennedy had Brent Steg's #7S wound up on the cushion. A late race restart was the key for Kennedy as he rocketed off the corner when the green flag dropped and opened and size able lead. That's all the Winnipeg, MB driver needed to cruise to his 2nd career RCS victory.
