BRIGHTON, ON – For the second time in as many weeks, Greg Belyea and his Excel Tower Racing team made it to Brighton Speedway victory lane. Belyea charged through the field to take the top spot, and held on to win his fourth feature of the season, and continues to narrow the gap in the chase for his second consecutive Brighton Speedway Late Model track championship. It was also the kickoff to the Excel Tower Toy Drive, raising money and collecting Toys for area children.
The night began with the usual qualifying heat races, and Belyea started from the sixth position and advanced to fourth place at the finish. In the 30-lap main event, he rolled off the starting grid from inside of the sixth row in the 11th position. Belyea worked toward the front earlier and made a spectacular three wide pass late in the event to capture his second win in a row.
“I am happy for the win tonight, but even happier for the great support we got for the Excel Tower Toy Drive,” Belyea said after the race. “The kids are the real winners here thanks to the Brighton Speedway fans and drivers.”
Brighton Speedway offered half price admission to anyone that donated a toy on Saturday night, and are pleased to announce that over 350 toys were collected, as well as $300 cash.
This coming week, Belyea will be back at Brighton Speedway on Saturday night looking to climb back into contention in the chase for the championship. He is currently third in points, and just 30 points out of second place.
The next major event on the schedule for Greg Belyea and the Excel Tower Service team will come at Brighton Speedway on September 8 as part of the Great Crate Race paying $5000 to win. The next race for the Excel Sprint Car will come at Brighton on Labor Day Weekend with a Saturday night and Sunday show.
