Darren Berry Takes McCook Speedway United Rebel Sprint Series/
Heartland Sprint Series Season Opener

The Heartland Sprint Series make their 2013 debut at McCook Speedway and it
didn't take long for the fans to experience the thrills and spills of Open
Wheeled Sprint Cars. Twelve Cars checked in for the night's action on the
3/8's mile oval with McCook Nebraska's own Darren Berry grabbing the win.

The 20 lap Feature got off to a rocky start as Norton Kansas's Ron Hadley
led the field to the green flag, after two attempts were called off the
third time was the charm as Darren Berry took advantage of his outside front
starting spot to jump to the lead. But the race was quickly red flagged as
North Platte's John Webster jumped the cushion and left the track in turns
one and two flipping into the catch fence ending his evening.

On the restart, Berry again took the point with Tom Belsky, Greg Reiners,
Zac Taylor and Nate Berry rounding out the top five. The second red flag of
the night was brought out on lap three as Ron Hadley's night ended in a turn
rollover and Craig Jecha made his way to the pits with a flat left rear.
Jecha made the necessary repairs and rejoined the field.

On the restart, Berry once again held the top spot as the field held steady
until the caution flew on lap nine for a turn four spin by Aaron Ploussard.
On the restart the caution flew again as Zac Taylor spun in turn four. The
field took the green flag with Berry holding the lead but the battles behind
him started to heat up. 

Nate Berry had been holding down the fifth position started to reel in
Reiners and caught him on lap ten. Berry then worked his way up to runner up
Tom Belsky, after several laps Nate Berry made the pass to the second spot. 

But it was clear sailing as Darren Berry took the home checkers with Nate
Berry, Belsky, Reiners and Howard VanDyke rounded out the top five. A-Main:
