JACOB SABAJ TAKES HOME HIS FIRST EVER GLLS FEATURE WIN

Mt.Pleasant, MI (Friday, June 9, 2023) -Great Lakes Lightning Sprints presented by United Engine and Machine (GLLS) had their second race of the season at Mt.Pleasant Speedway. The night was packed with a thrilling event of high speed racing and an amazing turnout in the stands. To start this right, we would like to say thank you to all the drivers, fans, sponsors, and staff members who came out to the race and supported us.

During the parade lap before the Feature race started EJ Szyska (Harrison,MI) and Rick Irwin (Fostoria, MI) collided causing them to both spin out. Unfortunately, Szyska was unable to participate in the Feature Race. During the Feature Race a caution was thrown because Dalton Pipgrass (Byron, MI) spun out which caused Brendon Cascadden (Traverse City, MI) to hit his tire and flip his car. After this caution was cleared up Jacob Sabaj (Cournna, MI) who started in 4th place was able to take the lead. Sabaj was able to hold his pace for the rest of the Feature Race and take home his first ever Feature Race win with the Great Lakes Lightning Sprints!!

Matt Cogley (Findlay, OH) sets a fast time of 14.618 taking home the Fast Qualifier! Justin Ward (Benzonia, MI) wins the Chaney Creek Construction Heat Race 1. Lindsey Erickson (South Boardman, MI) wins the Double W Oilfield Sales & Service Heat Race 2. Sabaj take home Heat Race 3 presented by Beacon & Bridge Market.

Next Up! GLLS will be racing at I-96 Speedway on June 16th and Butler Speedway on July 1!!
