- Auston Pribbenow made it 3 different
winners in the 3 opening weeks of 2013.
Auston held of a hard charging Troy
Ullery on the last lap. 13 cars made the
trip to Phillips County Raceway in
Holyoke, CO. An excellent day of weather
made for a very fast track. Strating
from the outside front row Auston
Pribbenow took the lead and after an
early red for an incident that invlolved
Scott Heikes and Jeff Gieg, Troy Ullery
was hot on his tail. Coming in to the
last turn of the last lap Troy Ullery
made one last charge at the win and
unfortunately spun and finished 9th.
Following Auston to the checkered was
Paul Babich, Troy Simpson, Glenn
Waterland who picked up his first heat
race win earlier and his first top 5 and
Tim Snelling. Scott Heikes and Jeff Gieg
were involved in a scary crash early in
the main event. Scott Heikes was
transported to the hospital where he was
later released with a nasty egg on one
of his eyes and bumps and bruises, we
wish Scott a full and speedy recovery.
Jeff Gieg was also involved but was
uninjured, although Jeff tried to make
repairs and continue it was not to be,
we are also glad Jeff was uninjured. The
complete results are as follows.

ANNIVERSARY SEASON PROMISES TO BE A
Cybulski, WINNIPEG, MB (May 10, 2013) With
Manitoba's dirt track racing season fast
approaching, the members of the Northern
Lightning Sprint Association are preparing to
do battle for bragging rights to the 2013 NLSA
it's 5th season, the NLSA promises to be the
showstopper that racing fans have come to
expect from the high-flying open wheel
class. Manitoba's fastest cars on dirt
will be showcased every Monday night
starting on May 27th at Winnipeg's Red River
Co-op Speedway and 7 Sunday afternoons at
Morden's ALH Motor Speedway including 2
dates during the Corn and Apple Festival.
Morden's first date for the Lightning
Sprints is June 2nd.
to action will be 3-time NLSA Champion
Roland Bernard in his familiar #2 sprinter.
He will also have plenty of company
vying for the checkered flag this season.
In 2012 many teams found their way to
victory lane and will be hunting for more
including Chris Sorin, Dylan Sabatini, Chris
Unrau, Frank Elias, Wally Butler and Amber
of Amber Balcaen, she will be driving for WB
Racing this season. In 2012, Balcaen chalked
up multiple wins plus she got a taste of
success, earning her first Track
Championship at ALH Motor Speedway. Raising
her game to the next level and racing one of
Wally Butler's cars will make Amber a
greater threat each and every race night.
Fans who remember Butler's blistering
performances from last season will know why
this could be a huge deal for Balcaen.
coming weeks, many questions will start to
be answered. Who will take the first
checkered flag of the season? Who will be
victorious and win the 2 Manitoba Track
Championships up for grabs? Who will become
the 2013 Northern Lightning Sprint
given night, any team is capable of winning.
This is why the Northern Lightning Sprint
Association is arguably the most competitive
and evenly matched field of cars to race on
a Manitoba dirt oval track. Dirt slinging
action that will leave you on the edge of
flag drops on May 27th for the NLSA and open
wheel racing in Manitoba is about to heat up
Monday nights this summer to new record
the Northern Lightning Sprint Association:
in September of 2008, the Northern
Lightning Sprint Association is a rapidly
growing organization committed to the
creation and maintenance of safe, fast,
fun, and affordable open wheel racing.
Many of the organizationís members are
dedicated to helping charities such as the
Childrenís Hospital Foundation and
Cancer Care of Manitoba. More information

Guide to Getting Started.
Mini Sprint racing is one of the fastest growing segments of
open wheel racing. The class which features open wheel
racers similar in size to a full-size midget, but powered by
a motorcycle engine, have become a popular stepping stone
for today's youth as well as a economical playground for the
weekend warrior. The cars run on both paved and dirt
ovals around the world with the heaviest concentration in
the United States.
