Fillbrunn, Zrinski, Arntz, and Agnello Heat Up A Chilly Afternoon At Borgers
Fourteen years ago Borgers Speedway owner and operator Glenn Borger had a dream of building a Go Kart track for his grandson Brian who was a National Champion. In those fourteen years Glenn overcame many obstacles. A successful Micro-Sprint, Slingshot, and Kart track endured many hardships all leading up to a 2011 court settlement that shut the track down. A lesser man would of given up but not Glenn Borger. In a WFMZ-TV interview Glenn said I did what the neighbors thought I would not do. The court told me what I had to do and I did it. The neighbors will not keep me from my “Field Of Dreams.” What you see now is the result of that determination. The finest 1/7 mile asphalt track in the country Borgers Speedway.
It did not take long for Mike Fillbrunn to make a return visit to Borgers Speedway victory lane in Hoosier Racing tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints. Fillbrunn set a blistering pace leading every lap to take the win over Jason Hentrich, Jon Cortright, Scott Washburn, and Paul Quear.
Don Zrinski led the field of Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints to turn one followed by Anthony Schlosser White and Mike Fillbrunn. A tangle with Fillbrunn and White KO’d Fillbrunn for the day’s action. Darren Schuler moved into third on lap two and a lap later got by Schlosser White. As Zrinski opened a sizeable lead a two car battle developed between Schuler and Schlosser White. Zrinski would prevail and take starter Tyler Knitter’s checkered flag followed by Schuler, Schlosser White, Bob White, and Steven Boland.
In AllStar Slingshots Tom Arntz made his first race of 2013 a good one by taking the twenty five lap main. Arntz, Mike Moyer, Tom Hennessey were first to turn one with Al Hauptman in a daring move jumping from sixth to fourth coming out of turn two. Hauptman got by Hennessey on lap four and made the pass on Moyer for second on lap five. Arntz increased his lead as Hauptman, Moyer, and Hennessey battled for second. Arntz pulled into victory lane followed by Hauptman, Moyer, Hennessey, and Kenneth Reeder.
In his debut in Junior Slingshot racing Joey Agnello led every lap to take his first Junior Slingshot feature win
