Jeff ĎThe Magicianí Mitrisin Works Magic in Win at Scotland County Fair

by Tony Paris

(Memphis, MO) The Mid-America 305 Winged Sprint Cars were part of the card for the 2006 Scotland County Fair with the circuitís third new face in victory lane.

The first two races of the year were won by Steve Breazeale of Trenton. John Hillman of Jefferson City took the checkers in the third show before Jeff Mitrisin of Oskaloosa, IA won the most recent race.

In the fifteen-lap feature event Louis Lynch of Glenwood and Jerrod Hull of Sikeston led the field to the green flag. When the flag dropped, Lynch beat Hull to the lead in turns one and two and paced the field for the first three laps before Hull took the lead off turn two on lap four. Hull was piloting the 41 machine owned by Dale Oaks of Burlington, IA with Jeff Mitrisin of Oskaloosa, IA closing the gap after starting in the eighth position. The two drivers would thrill the crowd swapping the lead, all the while a good battle for the third spot was heating up between last yearís point champion Mark Widmar of Ottumwa, IA and Lynch with the two cars going wheel-to-wheel.

The battle for the lead and the third spot was very exciting but the battle for the lead ended when HullĎs machine would bring caution out on lap nine with engine problems. Mitirsin would pilot the 83 machine owned by Brian Ridge of Ottumwa, IA to victory lane for the first time ever being behind the wheel of the 305 sprinter.

ďThis was a dream come true night, winning the first feature in a 305 and topping the 360 class all in one night.Ē said Mitrisin. This all came about when Brian Ridge got hurt two weeks ago Friday night at the Bloomfield Speedway after crashing on the first lap and needed someone to fill the seat of the BRC Construction, JD Express, Miller Lite #83 machine.

Second went to Widmar with Lynch taking third and current point leader Steve Breazeale in fourth and rookie driver Logan Trueblood of Memphis taking his best finish of the season with fifth.

The Haines Auto Supply hard luck award went to Monte Hill of Fairfield fighting a oil leak with the crew working all night to try to solve the problem. The First Choice Reality mystery spot went to the 12th starting spot of Mike Mayberry, Fremont, IA. The Lancaster Oil Company hard charger was Jeff Mitrisin.

The next show for the Mid-America 305 Winged Sprints will be Friday night June 30th at the Mountain-Dew Bloomfield Speedway in Bloomfield, IA with hot laps at 7:00pm and racing action to follow at 7:30 p.m.
