Description by Michelle Sprague of SpartanSpeedway.com

Fourteen-year old Taylor Ferns of Shelby Township won the feature for the inaugural running of the Sawyers Wingless Sprints, at the Spartan Speedway, on April 30th. Jimmy McCune and Mike Astraukas brought the nine car field down for the green, with McCune taking a commanding lead in the opening laps. Ferns worked her way around Astraukas, as Derek Snyder took third on lap five. Tom Fedewa took the high groove and worked his way into third by lap 10. With McCune still in the lead, Ferns was slowly but surely reeling in the leader with Fedewa trying to close the gap between himself and Ferns. Ferns caught McCune on lap 17, in traffic, and dove to the low side of McCune for the lead on lap 19. Ferns gave him a little nudge, got him out of shape and took away the top spot. At the line, it was Taylor Ferns for her first ever feature win and her first trip to the Corrigan Oil Winners Circle. McCune, Fedewa, Snyder, and Chris Hettinger rounded out the top five. Astraukas, Doug Dietsch, Jim Heeney and Mark Strpko finished sixth through ninth, respectively. Deitsch and McCune took heat wins for the evening.

In my (Pyro60000) personal opinion, Taylor should show more patience. Many times you can see her running into the dirt while trying to get under someone. When you are that fast, take the high line, or wait for a low opening that doesn't stir up dirt.

The contact with McCune was also a result of impatience. She would have passed him eventually, (I heard he ran out of brakes) she didn't have to hit him like that.
