It was Goose Creek, South Carolina’s Luis Irizarry holding off many late charges by taking the checkers first on Wednesday night’s South Beach 160 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway for Blazin’ Pedals. Irizarry started third in the twenty car field and led twenty laps in his third win this season. Bart Fuerstenberger (Cheyenne, WY) came home in the second place position ahead of Larry Galley (Newtown, PA), Ryan Tracey (Edgewood, MD) and Scott Tracey (Edgewood, MD).
The race was marred by twelve cautions in the 107-lap, 160-mile event. Daniel Sergent (Lexington, KY) led thirty-six laps which was the most among his peers, but a blown second gear in his #04 Pepsi Ford slowed him down on restarts and eventually relegated him to eleventh. Irizarry made a late pass on Sergent in the final ten laps to drive off to victory. Six different leaders led the event as they swapped the top spot ten different times. The race took just over one hour, forty one minutes to complete. Eleven drivers completed the race on the lead lap.
The South Beach 160 was the final event for the Blazin’ Pedals Truck Series in 2010’s third segment. Lexington, KY’s Jason Justis locked down the championship by answering the call to the green on Wednesday evening. A tight battle for second was showcased as eight drivers had a chance to drastically advance their final point standing. Ryan Tracey would hold on to the runner-up spot with Sergent and Fuerstenberger both advancing their positions with their performace at the 1.5-mile oval. Ryan’s father Scott Tracey completed the top five in the final standings.
