8.19.17 FAST 305 Sprints Results

In the JLH General Contractor FAST 305 Championship Series presented by Engine Pro, Cody Bova from nearby Struthers, Ohio, and current FAST point leader Paul Weaver, who has scored nine wins in 2017, put on a very entertaining show. Bova jumped into the early lead with Weaver hunting him down and taking the point late with Bova using heavy lapped traffic to regain the top spot to drive to the win. For Bova, who has raced a majority of the FAST events in 2017, it was his first ever series win and his 10th career victory at Mercer Raceway Park.

“This one is huge. To beat Paul Weaver…he passed me and I passed him back in lapped traffic…that’s just awesome. Paul’s a great driver…actually all these FAST drivers are top-notch drivers. To come out here and win at my home track and to win my first FAST race is just awesome. There were a lot of close calls in lapped traffic. Once Paul passed me…I wasn’t going to give this up that easy. I want to thank JS Bova Excavating, AIMI Imaging Services, Richardson Tree Service, Gressman Powersports, Kaptured Speed, Welding Tech, my dad, my mom, my girlfriend, Scott Priester, and all the friends and family that came out tonight,” Bova said.
