ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (July 14) – Almost as fast as the lightning all around the track, Anthony Harris bolted to the Friday night Virginia Sprint Series win at Dixieland Speedway.

After the track promoter flipped the race program to get the traveling IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars on the track earlier on the program, Daren Bolac took the early lead with Anthony Linkenhoker and Harris in hot pursuit

Harris took over second then got the front spot when Bolac made contact with another car.

Troy Severin and Brian Lawson gave chase but neither could catch Harris in time to deny him his third series win of the season.

Feature results – 1. Anthony Harris; 2. Troy Severin; 3. Brian Lawson; 4. Mike Leraas; 5. An­thony Linkenhoker; 6. Chris Ware; 7. Charlie Ware; 8. Bill Rice; 9. Mike Keeton; 10. Daren Bolac; 11. French Grimes Jr.
