Jerry Sehn Scratches 7 Year Itch at Whip City Speedway

WESTFIELD, MA June 26– BY MARK McKEON Jerry Sehn raced Mini Sprints for seven years without a win until his decisive 1200cc victory at Whip City Speedway on Saturday. Sehn, who last visited victory lane in 1991 as Utica-Rome Speedway Pure Stock track champ, led every lap and withstood a restart on lap 14, to win by 10 car lengths over Charlie Pease.

“The competition here is so close and the drivers are so good, that I put it in my mind that I had to get a good start,” said a smiling Sehn, who makes a seven hour roundtrip tow to race at the Whip. “After I did, I just kept on trying to hit my marks. The car got a little upset once in turn 1, but I tried to keep my focus on running my line. I really didn’t want a caution, so when the yellow flag came out I said ‘oh, no’, but I was able to get a good restart. Just before the race, we made a last minute change to the wing and I think that was a big factor.”

1200cc: JERRY SEHN, Charlie Pease, Peter Dance, Jon Moore, John Virgilio, Jamie Beaudry, Bill Adamsky, Kristen Phillips, Mark Taylor, Bethany Viets.
