MIKE BELUSAR CLAIMED THE FIRST FEATURE WIN OF THE SEASON MARCH 18TH @ 4-17 SOUTHERN SPEEDWAY
         
BELUSAR WINS SEASON OPENER @ 4-17 SOUTHERN SPEEDWAY


Former Series Champion Mike Belusar returned from serious eye surgery that sidelined him for most of 2016 to win the Florida Midget Racing Association season opener Saturday night March 18th at 4-17 Southern Speedway.

The pill draw put Scott Roboski from North Port in the #44 on the pole of the 20 lap feature with Brooksville's Jamie Barnum in the #7 on the outside. Barnum won the drag race to turn one and was able to pull away to a 6 car length lead over the 44. Belsuar out of Punta Gorda driving Jimmie McKinneys #63 got past Roboski on lap 4 and tracked down Barnum to take the lead on Lap 9.  Belusar held on for the remaining caution free laps to take the win. Barnum came home 2nd, with Roboski finishing 3rd. Rounding out the top 5 was Al Seitz in the #4 in fourth and Stu Chamberlain driving his recently purchased car #6 in fifth. Belusar also won the heat race. 

Join us for our second race of the 2017 points season on Saturday night April 29th @ Showtime Speedway.
