Story By: SHAWN BROUSE / WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY – MECHANICSBURG, PA – Briggs Danner got the lead on lap six of the USAC East Coast Sprint Car feature Friday night at the Williams Grove Speedway and went on to score his first career oval victory.

Danner started fifth in the 25-lap main before driving to the win.

Tommy Kunsman Jr. led the first circuit before third-generation driver Mike Thompson got the lead away.

Thompson then held sway until Danner poked his way underneath for the lead in the third turn on lap six.

Danner’s pace was slowed twice after getting command with restarts taking place on laps eight and 11.

Defending series point champion Alex Bright drove into second on lap seven but failed to challenge Danner for the victory, instead crossing the line 1.411 seconds behind at the finish.

Heats went to Bright, Drevicki and Kunsman.
