Michael England Rocks to 10th Annual Bluegrass Rumble Win at Bluegrass Speedway

Bardstown, KY-July 24, 2010- The American Modified Series presented by Force Fuel and Engine Conditioner concluded its big money weekend of action at the David and Anita Ferrell promoted Bluegrass Speedway in Bardstown, KY on Saturday evening and second-generation racer Michael England would drive to the win in the 10th Annual Bluegrass Rumble, with the victory worth $3,000.

Randle Sweeney and Shelby Miles would lead the 30 lap American Modified Series A-main event to the green flag, but before a full lap was completed Randle Sweeney would get crossed up in turn three and Jason Wheatley and Bryan Barber would also be involved, with Sweeney done for the night. This would move Michael England to the pole of the race and he would take the lead on the second start of the race, followed by Shelby Miles, Don Adams, Benji Lee, and Jason Wheatley. Lee would take third from Adams on lap 3 as England and Miles set a torrid pace at the point. Wheatley would mount a challenge on Adams for third and would grab the spot on lap 6 as the front five would remain the same at this point through lap 10.

Miles would close on England on lap 12 and England started to work slower traffic, while Doug Adkins would scoot past Adams for on lap 14. With Miles continuing to apply pressure on England for the lead, Wheatley would reel in third place running Lee and that pair would begin to battle for the third position. A caution for debris on lap 19 would slow the event for the final time and on the double-file restart, England would pull away Miles off of turn two and maintain the lead, while Lee and Wheatley continued their struggle for third. Wheatley would finally take third with a turn two slidejob pass on lap 22 as Miles continued to dog England for the top spot. England would pull away from Miles in the final five circuits of the race and take the checkered flag first in the Team WompusCat owned Jeffries Auto Salvage/Williams and Tucker Auto Salvage/Kentucky Clutch Salvage/Horton Racing/Waterhead Motorsports/Chuck Davis Machine/Simpson Machine and Fabrication sponsored #10.5 Lightning Chassis, Pro Power Race Engine powered machine. Miles, Wheatley, Lee, and Adkins would complete the top five, with the remainder of the top ten going to Adams, Miguel Coffey, 14th starting John Demoss, Ed Shamhart, and 16th starting J.T. Ayers.

In preliminary action, Benji Lee be the SPEC Race Engines top qualifier with a lap of 17.553 seconds. Sweeney would win Wehr’s Machine and Racing Products heat one, England would win PPM Racing Products heat two, Miles would win Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oil heat three, and Wheatley would win Wiles Driveshafts heat four. The B-Mains would be captured by Rob Penny and Trent Youngr, while the series provisional went to Mike Selby, with Brad Schlosser taking the track provisional.
