ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (June 8) – Dixieland Speedway hosted the first Virginia Sprint Series Fast Friday event of the season after an earlier rainout and Daren Bolac was the fastest at his hometown track.

Bill Rice and Chris Ware paced to IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car field to green with Ware getting the run off the top and Rice down low.

Ware was steady up top but ultimately no match for Bolac, who proved the bottom was fast as well in taking away the lead.

Tom Humphries got by Rice and was shadowing Ware lap after lap but their pursuit was changing every corner of every lap as Jerald Harris, C.J. Faison, Tony Harris, Jake McLain, Jeff Taylor and Randy Sterling were all in a pack.

Bolac stayed strong up front and Humphries got by Ware, leaving him to deal with Faison. Bolac was just not going to be caught as the checkered flag was waving for a popular win with Hum­phries second and Faison third.

Next it’s a first-time visit to Hagerstown, Md., Speedway on Saturday, June 16.

Feature results – 1. Darin Bolac; 2. Tom Humphries; 3. C.J. Faison; 4. Chris Ware; 5. Jerald Har­ris; 6. Tony Harris; 7. Jake McLain; 8. Jeff Taylor; 9. Randy Sterling; 10. Craig Pellegrini; 11. Ben McCall; 12. Glenn Worrell; 13. Neil Sandridge; 14. Bill Rice; 15. Reid Mitchell; 16. Charlie Ware.
