Brink Scores a Victory in Newcastle
After 2 rain cancelled events, the Hoosier Tire's Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour finally kicked off it's 2015 season, and the event did not disappoint. After uneventful heat races with winners Nate Hand (2), Logan Hershey (20), Blayne Brink (21), and John Garrigan jr. (95j), the 20 car feature was full of excitement. A first lap spin by Garrigan sent cars scrambling and the 22 machine of Brandon Mills into the front stretch guard rail, finishing his evening. After a couple of failed restart attempts which reduced the field with a few mechanical failures, the race was on, and the 2014 co-champ Logan Hershey and 14 year old Blayne Brink swapped the lead back and forth a few times with Brink finally settling in at the point. On lap 15, the red flag flew for the only time of the evening when rookie Riley Fremont driving his #808 from the rear, touched wheels with veteran Larry Reub (59) sending the rookie for a ride, flipping in turn 1, coming to rest on his side. Fremont climbed from his mangled machine unharmed. On the restart, Hershey regained the lead, but Brink quickly made a pass on the back stretch for the last time. 2 laps later, Hershey's motor expired in a plume of smoke and steam. Brink went on to capture the lead, with Jim Paisley (88) finishing in second. Don Taylor (31), John Garrigan jr. (95j), and Jason Robbins (50) finished out the top 5.
The next race for the Hoosier Tire's BHMST will be June 6th at the Jackpine Gypsy's Short Track in Sturgis, SD.
