GLSS-Great Lakes Super Sprints


Hartford, MI - Great Lakes Super Sprints presented by Engine Pro & ARP rolled into Hartford Speedway for their first appearance of the 2023 season with 29 cars. With all 6 of the GLSS Champions on hand, the 2019 Champion, Phil Gressman (Fremont, OH) navigated the field and the evening to end up on top of the podium, with the reigning Champion, Max Stambaugh (Elida, OH) taking home 2nd and Brad Lamberson (Parma, MI) rounding out the podium with 3rd.

At the last GLSS race of the 2022 season at Hartford, Gressman had truck trouble on the way to the track. Gressman's crew took advantage of the break down along I-94 and got the car ready to roll when they got to the track. Rolling into the pits, firing the car and rolling onto the track in the last group and setting fast time! Gressman went on to a perfect trifecta by setting quick time, won his heat race and won the feature.

Tonight Gressman never broke down on the highway, was second quick, was 2nd in his heat race, but ended up in the winners circle again! Putting him ahead of Max Stambaugh in the Wolverine Division and the Buckeye Divisions of GLSS.

Tonight's Hoosier Racing Tires Hard Charger was Keith Sheffer Jr (Jerome, MI) who moved up 7 spots from 15th to finish 8th.

Other noteable returns to the track tonight were Chase Ridenour (Perry, MI) the inaugural champion of GLSS in 2016. Chase hasn't ran regularly for the past two years, but made his 2023 debut in the new Danny Williams Racing #01 machine. Also returning tonight after a two year absence was Garrett Saunders, driving the #71 Family Car.

The Wolverine Region of Great Lakes Super Sprints presented by Engine Pro & ARP is back in action today, Saturday, June 17th at the "Battle Grounds" of Butler Speedway. The Buckeye Region will be back in action on Friday, June 23rd at Limaland Motorsports Park for the Tim Allision Memorial Race!
