Rookie Fremont Shines in Sturgis

Riley Fremont, the teenage rookie from Spearfish, SD has been on a mission to learn as much as he can in his transition from drifter cars to the world of dirt racing in the Hoosier Tire's Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour, and his persistence paid off Saturday night at the Jackpine Gypsy track in Sturgis, SD. In only his 5th start, and from his 3rd place starting place, Riley caught and passed the pole sitter and early leader Jason Robbins (50) at about lap 8, and after multiple cautions and restarts, managed to keep his black #808 in the lead for the remainder of the 25 lap feature. 12th place starter and Speedmart's Hard Charger Award winner  John Garrigan jr. (95j) finished second, but didn't seem to have anything for the leader, as the track started to lose more grip as the laps winded down. Alliance, NE. driver Jeff Wignall (19) finished 3rd in the feature event, followed closely by Larry Reub (59), who started towards the rear after transferring into the A-main by winning the B-main. Doug McIntosh (23) finished out the top 5.

The only major incident of the evening was when Logan Hershey (20), 2014's BHMST Point co-champion, while battling for the lead in the B-main, was collected up in spinning lapped car and ended up-side down. Hershey was uninjured, but his car was finished for the evening. The defending champ has had a series of bad luck nights with 3 broken motors, a crash, and as of yet has still been unable finish a main event.

The Hoosier Tire's Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour has the week off next week for the 4th of July, but will return to the Jackpine Gypsy track in Sturgis, SD on the 11th of July for the 6th race of the season.
