Lemieux & Birchfield win at Stock Wars 2015

Lemieux & Birchfield win at Stock Wars 2015

The recent Stock Wars 2015 race was hosted by Middle River Hobbies in Middle River Maryland, on a small to medium size high grip carpet track. The race format was Pro and Open stock classes with practice all day on Friday, three qualifiers on Saturday, and one qualifier on Sunday followed by single finals. Classes were 17.5 TC Pro, 17.5 TC Open, 17.5 1/12 Pro, 17.5 1/12 Open, USGT and F1. Celebrity announcer Scotty Ernst made the trip to add to the already big anticipation and excitement of the event. In the Pro Touring Car division Paul Lemieux set the pace from Q1 on. Paul had serious challenges in qualifying by Kyle Klingforth but was able to TQ by a moderate amount. Robby Dodge would also throw in his hat for TQ at times but would round out the top three in qualifying.

The Pro Touring final was not to be the exciting race everyone had hoped, wrecks at the beginning allowed TQ Paul Lemieux to get an early lead and he never looked back. The fight for second would be the interesting one with many drivers having a good chance for it. In the end Eric Anderson would hold off the charging Kyle Klingforth to finish second.
