       MIKE NELSON GRABBED HIS FIRST FEATURE OF 2017 SATURDAY NIGHT JULY 29TH @ SHOWTIME SPEEDWAY IN PINELLAS PARK.

NELSON GOES WIRE TO WIRE FOR FIRST FEATURE WIN OF THE YEAR @ SHOWTIME

Brandon's Mike Nelson dove under the pole sitter from his third starting spot at the drop of the green flag and then proceeded to go wire to wire for his first feature win of the season Saturday night July 29th at Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park. Nelson built up a straight away lead from the field as the the #7 of Jamie Barnum, the #11 of Jimmy Wilkins lll and #63 of Rob Kohler bumped and banged for  several laps trying to break free into second place.  After a red flag on lap ten for a flip by the #4 of Al Seitz, Wilkins lll finally was able to secure the position on lap fifteen but  was unable to track down the hard charging Nelson in the twenty lap event. Wilkins lll finished second, Barnum held off the #63 for third, with Kohler fourth and Sam Mancuso in the #2 fifth. Rounding out the field was the #6 of Stu Chamberlain in sixth, Seitz rebounded for a seventh place finish in the #4  and Mike Elder, making a return to the track in the #52 for the first time in over seven years fought handling problems all night and finished eight.

Jimmy Wilkins lll won the heat race. 

The FMRA takes a break during the rainy season but will return to racing on September 16th at 4-17 Speedway in Punta Gorda.
