August 25, 2013
AUGUST 25 – GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY: Jamie Kostic earned a page in the Grandview Speedway history book as he drove his Amsoil sponsored No. 10J to victory in the 20-lap Hillborn Fuel Injection TSRS 305 Sprint feature race becoming the winner of the first 305 Sprint feature race ever run at the Berks County clay oval. In the companion 25-lap Sportsman feature Kenny Gilmore was able to wheel his Werley’s Cleaners No. 7 to victory giving him his second win of the weekend. The Fleetwood, PA racer was also able to win the Sportsman feature on Saturday on the same one-third-mile, banked clay oval.
In the 20-lap feature for 305 sprints David Martin led the field to the green but Stef Palmai was able to quickly charge to the front and lead for 14 laps holding off strong challenges from Kostic and Martin. On the 13th circuit a unique situation happened with David Martin being spun by Kostic in the second turn. Officials put Martin back in the second place position and Kostic received no penalty. Two laps later Martin was able to charge to the front and set the pace for three circuits before Kostic was able to use the outside to his advantage and take the top spot on the 18th lap and lead the balance of the race. The Swedesboro, NJ racer had a comfortable lead at the finish with Mark Bitner trying to close in to challenge but had to settle for second. Third place went to David Martin followed by Billy Pauch Jr., coming from 14th, and Kyle Reinhardt.
Tim Tanner took a violent end over end flip in the first turn during the early laps of the feature but was not injured.
