GLSS-Great Lakes Super Sprints


Lake Odessa, MI - Two time Great Lakes Super Sprints presented by Engine Pro & ARP Champion, Jared Horstman (Cloverdale, OH), tops the field at I-96 Speedways opener to bring home his first feature win of the season.

The faithful fans of I-96 Speedway took the chance to drive to the track and help support opening night of the 2023 race season! They were rewarded with a great field of cars, including 5 of the 6 GLSS past champions on hand.

The night started out with a bang, as Devon Dobie (Wapakoneta, OH) took the track first for single car qualifying and set a new track record of 13.9 seconds, which is rougly averaging 104 miles per hour! Ryan Ruhl (Coldwater, MI) and Phil Gressman (Fremont, OH) who were 2nd and 3rd quick respectively set times under the previous record of 14.05 seconds. Horstman and Brad Lamberson (Parma, MI) rounded out the top five.

In the Engler Tool & Machine Heat one, Danny Sams III took home the win with Horstman and Dustin Daggett (Portland, MI) rounding out the top 3.

Mike Keegan (Fremont, OH) took the checkered in the Jim Coffey & Sons Plumbing & Heating Heat 2. Tyler Rankin (Coldwater, MI) and Lamberson rounded out the top 3.

In the Home Pro Roofing Heat 3, Darin Naida (Adrian, MI) took the victory as Jason Blonde (Litchfield, MI) and Gressman rounded out the top 3.

Sitting the pace early, Sams was on cruise control early, until he came up on a slower car as he was ripping the lip thru turn 4. With no where to go he made hard contact with the car and also getting caught up coming out of the middle of turn 4 was Naida, coming down hard as his car stood up on the tail tank and bounced right side up and bringing out the red.

Horstman was the new leader and he flew up through the field lapping up to 10th place. Taking the checkered broke a short dry spell for Horstman and helped him put his electrical shock from a couple weeks ago in Tennessee behind him.

Our next race for the North Division of GLSS is Hartford Motor Speedway on Friday, May 19th, while the NRA South Division will be back at Limaland Motorsports park on the same night.
