ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (June 21, 2024) – Home track advantage worked out well for Daren Bolac, winner of the Fast Friday Virginia Sprint Series feature at Dixieland Speedway.

Jerald Harris and Bolac paced the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car feature field to green on the hot summer night but the race track was perfect with multiple lanes, smooth and fast.

Harris went to the lead and was staying low as Bolac went high and was all over Harris every lap with Matthew Leach staying in touch in third with a fast closing Chris Humblet in fourth.

At lap 10, Bolac made the pass stick after many laps of the two swapping the lead every corner. Harris had to deal with Humblet but not for long as with 10 to go, Humblet got by and Bolac was in his sights as the two went at it.

Bolac was committed to the high line for the race and Humblet stayed low or midtrack and every corner the lead was in doubt. With five to go, Humblet was inches ahead at the line but Bolac was fast in one and two to get back in the lead.

Humblet’s line in three and four was better and coming to the strip every lap was right next to him.  With one to go he was right on his bumper again but Bolac made a perfect lap to hold off Humblet in a great display of IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car racing for all the fans to see from the entire field.

At the line it was Bolac, Humblet, Harris, Matthew Leach and Aaron Leach filling the top five positions.

Next it’s back to Langley Speedway for the annual fireworks and Sprint Cars July 4th celebration on Saturday night June 29.
