Schweikart takes first ever win at Path Valley
Dale Schweikart drove from his 6th place starting spot to pick up from his first ever PASS/IMCA win Saturday at Path Valley Saturday night. Schweikart used the low groove to overtake veteran Ryan Lynn to move into the top spot while Lynn managed a second place finish with a contact lens folded over in one eye for much of the race. Drew Ritchey, Zack Newlin and Scott Ellerman rounded out the top 5.
Schweikart has been with PASS since 2013 running mostly at Clinton County and Path Valley. Dale had a string of 3rd place finishes at Path Valley in recent races but finally saw victory lane on Saturday night.

SSP rains out
Thursday night 30 teams either called off sick or left work early in an attempt to get the show in at Susquehanna but once again mother nature had other plans with our 7th weather cancellation or postponement.
Hopefully things will change as we move on to Path Valley for Saturday night short track racing and onto our 3 race "speed weekend" next week.
