The Earman Fulk Memorial provided a strong field for the Central Pa Legends on a less than ideal weather night with high winds in the area.
Billy Workman Jr was quick to pick up where he left off last year as the winner of this event by setting the Quick Time.
Travis McClelland would take advantage of the front row starting spot in the heat race to take the top spot away from Workman and earn the pole of the feature event.
McClelland lead the 24 car field to the green flag. A few early race yellow flags kept Workman on McClelland’s tail, but as Workman began to search the speedway he found McClelland drifting away. Workman ended up in a three car battle with Landen Lewis and Blaine Leppo.
When the checkered flag flew it was Travis McClelland taking the Earman Fulk Memorial checkered flag. Lewis fought to keep the second spot and Workman rounded out the podium finishers.
Blaine Leppo and Bob Stough were the top five.
Chris Transeau was sixth trailed by Steven Wurtzer, Owen Dimm, Jonathon Robinson, and Arron Updegraff.
McClelland, Leppo, and Lewis won heat races with Logan Carbaugh winning the B Main.
The 270 Micro Sprint season has seen Pete Skias emerge as an odds on favorite to be in victory lane each night.

Mike Boyer was second followed by Nick Skias. Ben Stolz and Dakota Barlet were the rest of the top five finishers.
