After a few year hiatus, the Keystone UAS made their return to Goodhope Speedway, revisiting a track was a schedule staple. With warmer temperatures and plenty of sun, the drivers had to be on their “A” game to tame this track. Nine muscle karts joined in on the race.
Heat 1 winner: 707 Paul Deasey Jr
Heat 2 winner: 77F Denny Furlow
Feature time came and only seven of the nine who started the night were heading out for the 20 lap finale. Denny Furlow checked out on the field early and looked very strong out there. However, the caution flag flew while the 69 of Brian Hartzell was slowing on the track and heading off. After a caution lap or so, race leader Furlow pulled to the inside just in front of the flagstand. Paul Deasey Jr assumed the lead for the restart and never looked back.
All in all, it was a fun and challenging return to Goodhope Speedway. I would like to thank the staff for opening their doors to the muscle karts and working with us to put on a great show.
Next up is a trip to Blairsville Speedway and the John Smith Memorial Race on August 12th. This will be Keystone’s 2nd National ¼ point race of the season.
