HIGHLIGHTS: Winged Micro Sprints at Millbridge
The path to victory was still not an easy one, with a long green flag run prior to the race’s one and only yellow flag, putting the No. 11X in thick lapped traffic. Using his great speed with veteran-like skill, the 13-year-old young gun managed to go to victory lane without a scratch.
“I was really fast and I kept my nose clean. It was really hard to get through lapped traffic with all the dirty air. I almost hit the wall a couple of times, but other than that it was really great,” said Crews after the race.
Despite his youth, Crews already has years worth of experience around Millbridge, thanks to going all the way through the divisions starting with Beginner Box Stocks way back in the day.
I’ve raced here since I was super-little, running the top has always been my thing. I love ripping the top, it’s always been on the fence since I was five years old, so it naturally came.
While his time at Millbridge has prepared him for the more national dirt ranks, Crews has managed to bring lessons learned on the road back to Salisbury, North Carolina.
“The Micros are a lot of fun, the Sprint Cars help with this, and the Midgets are a lot of fun with no wing. But, Sprint Car helps with the wing and going for the win.”
Nick Drake managed to get close to Crews in lapped traffic, but was unable to mount a challenge for the lead, settling for second. Ethan Burdett, Neal Allison, and Matt Francis rounded the Top 5.
