Dave Darland Wins!
4-9-2011 Lincoln Park Speedway-
Inclement weather claimed a number of races around the Midwest, but diligent work by Lincoln Park Speedway’s track workers enabled the IndianaOpenwheel.com/D.O. Racin’ Fest to go on as scheduled. Dave Darland chose to head to LPS for the $3,000-to-win payday for a feature win and he’s proven to be very tough at the Putnamville oval, claiming victory during the 2010 Indiana Midget Week event on June 17. Darland would capture the victory in his heat race and earn a fourth starting spot for the A-Main in his Weld Racing wheel equipped Jeff Walker/Jam It In Storage No. 11 Maxim sprinter.
As the A-Main white flag came out, Darland, in second place, looked to nose under Parker down the backstretch and into turn three. He was able to find just enough room in turn four to push his nose past Parker and squeeze out a thrilling last lap victory.
