Litt Charges to Angola Victory


By Duane Turner

ANGOLA, Ind. (June 30, 2012) –
Ryan Litt returned to Victory Lane in the TNT Motorsports number 42. The day began well at the newly reopened Angola Motor Speedway with 26 Super Sprints checking into the pits. Troy DeCaire topped the qualifying charts with a lap of 12.32. Litt qualified 2nd, followed by Jeff Bloom, Joe Swanson and Jason Fuller.

The three heat races would take 5 to the feature and produced great, exciting racing all over the track. Heat one was taken by the #88 of Jimmy McCune, followed by Geoff Keiser and DeCaire. Heat two was won by the #8 of Chris Neunswander, then the 24 of Bill Tyler and Litt. Heat 3 saw local favorite Kyle Henry winning followed across the strip by Dorman Snyder in the 14c and the 22 of Derek Snyder. The Last Chance Race featured Late Model hot shoe Tyler Roahing taking the checkers, then Sam Davis, Steve Smith, Jim Payne and the 6 of Jim Dolph making the feature.

The feature was quick with two yellows a spin early by South African Jacques Roos and a spin later by Henry slowing the field. Litt chased Swanson through the field and made a daring pass on the outside making it stick after a restart to claim the checkers. Swanson and Kaiser joined Litt on the podium.

Next on the schedule is Saturday July 7th Owosso Speedway. Come on out to see all you favorite Super Sprint drivers!
