Greg Stingle Sweeps Spring Crandon

 

Leads TORC Light Buggy Championship
Black Creek, Wisc. (July 7, 2014) - Greg Stingle had a perfect weekend of racing at the "Big House Brawl" in Crandon, Wisconsin. The veteran Light Buggy competitor won both rounds of racing in a convincing fashion that has fellow competitors wondering what can be done to prevent the man behind the wheel of the #172 Sassy's Bar and Grill / Badger State Transport / Geno's Steakhouse / Ben's Small Engine / Kountry Bar / JJ Malloney's / Lake Shore Cleaners / A & S Poured Walls / Kurt's Services / BFGoodrich Tires Buggy from another class championship.

Like most races, the start is very important for a solid finish. At Crandon, getting through the land rush start in or near the lead can make the rest of the race much easier, especially when there are twenty-three racers lined up side by side that will funnel down at the exit of Turn One onto a space that's three cars wide. This first aspect of the race Stingle understood very well.

 

The eight lap Round 3 feature saw Stingle charge down the nearly quarter-mile long straightaway with only one race in front of him as the field exited Turn One. By the second corner, the orange #172 Light Buggy was in the lead. A lead that wouldn't be relinquished, as Greg Stingle won his second race of the season.

 

Thanks to the dominating performance the team had minimal prep work overnight.

 

Sunday's Round 4 race was nearly identical from the day before. The #172 Light Buggy came through Turn One in second place, but this time it took Stingle until the third corner before he took command of the race. From that point on, the competition couldn't catch the man from Black Creek, Wisconsin. 

 

"It feels good to sweep the weekend," remarked Greg Stingle. "The competition is so tough in our class, and we really had a great combination this weekend. Everyone talks about horsepower and how important that is without our extremely limited engines, but keeping that speed through the corners at Crandon is another very important aspect in our class. Every winter we find a little something that makes our buggy work that much better, and this weekend it paid off."

 

After the Spring Crandon weekend of racing, Greg Stingle leads the TORC Light Buggy Championship.
