Medlock, Blurton sprint to URSS wins at Byers

BYERS, Colo. (June 25) – Justin Medlock and Zach Blurton were feature winners when the United Rebel Sprint Series rolled back through the pit gates at Colorado Motor Sports Park Satur­day night.

Medlock scored the first victory of his career in the feature rained out and made up from May 28 at Byers. Blurton then paced the scheduled event.

Medlock led every lap of the rescheduled contest after starting outside the front row. Austin Mclean took the runner-up position back from Bob Schaeffer on lap 15; Scott Cochran and Tod Plemons completed the top five.

Blurton wired the field in the scheduled 20-lapper that followed, becoming the fourth different win­ner in as many URSS events at Byers this season.
