Mike Mitchell wins Street Stock DAV
Mike Mitchell returned to the Street Stocks for a one off event and picked up his second DAV Fall Classic win in the division. The 30 lap feature started off with fireworks at the front of the field when pole sitter Ryan Lineham and outside pole sitter Manny Dias were trading paint before the start finish line on the initial green. They scraped up and down each other before Dias spun with a flat left front tire. As he was heading into the pits, he let Lineham know how happy he was with contact, ending both of their nights.
Scott Serydynski was caught up in the incident and suffered damage. It wasn’t long after until Steve Potter and Austin Blais got together after the restart while running second and third. By the sixth circuit, there had already been half dozen cautions. Gerard Berthelette led the first five laps before Mitchell took over. Berthelette ran second with John Hanafin, Andy Johnson and Mike Lima third, fourth and fifth. The final caution came out on lap 20 when Berthelette spun on the front stretch.
Johnson moved into second on the restart, and pressured the former Street Stock champion to the stripe, but came up .221 short for his best finish of the season. Mike Lima finished third in his only outing of 2013, with 2013 Street champion fourth and Ed Gannon III fifth.
