The short cold days of winter seem like a long distant memory now as race fans, driver, owners and everyone in between make their way to race tracks across the north east. In the few short weeks since the 2017 racing season has commenced, team BRP has picked up 9 feature wins and continued their winning streak with weekend, picking up another 6. There were definitely a few stories that caught our attention. If we awarded “the stars of the game”, these drivers would receive them for sure.

Just this past Wednesday Mike Colsten’s brought his car to Bicknell Racing Products. The car had been badly hurt in a dash for cash race the previous week, backing into a retaining wall. The rear of the car had been destroyed and required a new rear clip. The team at BRP went to work, replacing the car with a brand new rear clip. Cutting the old one off just behind the driver’s seat. Mike was back on the road, heading back to Binghamton NY by mid-afternoon. It must have been all the car needed, as Mike dominated Saturday night at 5 Mile point. The car was untouchable and no other driver could even challenge Colsten for the lead. He ran away with the show, grabbing the checkers.

The Brothers Hirthler caught our attention as well this week. This weekend was a first for the drivers from Perkiomenville PA, marking the first time the brothers have visited victory lane together, in the same night. Kevin scored his 12th career win at the Grandview Speedway Saturday night, while his brother Brian scored his 2nd career win in the sportsman division at the Brothers home track.

With just a few short weeks into the racing season, Duane Howard has showed he is going to be one to watch. The team has posted a few top 5 finishes as well as a heat win in the Norm Hansell owned number 357. This past Saturday night Howard moved himself into the spotlight, capturing the win at Bridgeport Speedway. Other notable BRP drivers were Jamie Mills who came home 2nd, Sam Martz, Jeff Strunk, Dom Buffalino and Billy Pauch Jr who all picked up top 10 finishes.

Congratulations goes out to Travis Hill and Jimmy Holden who also picked up feature wins this weekend.
