Darland Back In Victory Lane

8878Jpg
Indiana Sprint Week featured its fourth different winner in as many races on Thursday night when Dave Darland fought off Jay Drake for the win in the Robbie Stanley Memorial at Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway.

Darland led 23 laps of the event; Drake led the other seven laps.

Bud Kaeding finished third, with Mike English and Kevin Thomas rounding out the Top 5.

Darland’s triumph allowed him to pump up his USAC Sprint Car Series points lead to 39 points over Drake. Although it was his first win of the season, Darland has been able to hold on to the points lead because Drake has struggled to find the winning groove, too. He’s also won just once this year after winning 19 times in 2000.

Darland also leads the Indiana Sprint Week standings. He has 218 points, 29 points more than Drake through four of the seven events.

Other winners on Thursday night were Kevin Briscoe and Derek Davidson in the qualifying races; Terry Pletch, Brandon Petty, Jon Stanbrough and Tracy Hines in the heat races; and Drake in the semi-feature.

Indiana Sprint Week resumes Friday night with the Larry Rice Classic at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway.
