Sarver, PA (June 22, 2018) If there were any doubt concerning Michael Norris’s domination of the weekly fields and success at Lernerville Speedway transferring to similar results on a bigger stage against top national drivers, they were put to rest with authority on Friday night. Norris kept a stout field behind him for thirty laps with a lightning fast race car while skillfully hitting his marks with precision and navigating lapped traffic with no hesitation.

The young pilot who calls Sarver, PA home started on the pole of the main event and assumed command of the field from the drop of the green flag. He had little time to enjoy it though as Chub Frank slowed heading into turn three where former two time track champion Jared Miley made hard contact with him which brought out the caution flag and reset the field. On the ensuing restart, Norris was contested by Devin Moran who would provide the strongest challenge he would have to overcome throughout the race.

Norris created some separation as the laps clicked away, however Moran stayed close enough to become a threat at any moment and as lapped traffic came into play for the race leader with nine laps in the books. The two drivers then seemingly played a cat and mouse game through the middle section of the race while behind them, a three way battle emerged between Mike Marlar, Brandon Sheppard, and Thursday night’s winner Chris Madden as the three drivers raced three wide for several laps.

While that battle played out, Norris managed to make good decisions with two potential hang ups in lapped traffic including a late race move to get around Brent Larson, leaving Moran to find his own way around which helped Norris create enough margin to maintain as he crossed under the checkers first.

“This one’s for my dad and my grandparents,” an emotional Micheal Norris said. “I grew up coming here.”

It was a history making moment for Norris, but it was not the only history made on the night as Mike Marlar set a new track record of 14.812 seconds on a surface cooled by early rains, breaking Rick Eckert’s old record of 15.000.

The Firecracker 100 wraps up on Saturday night with a program consisting of heats, lined up from drivers best feature finishes, last chance showdowns, the 100 Lap Firecracker 100 Finale and the Uncle Sam 30 non qualifiers race.
