Salem Wins for Brigandi and Callahan

Salem Speedway Indyana Supermodified Challenge Features Fall to Dave Brigandi, Steve Callahan

Salem, IN – April 21, 2015…Dave Brigandi and Steve Callahan  picked up the feature wins in the Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series Indyana Supermodified Challenge Tuesday night at Salem Speedway. Brigandi was able to hold off a hard charging pack of cars behind him for his second wing supermodified win of the season. Myles Maxon and Carl Becker rounded out the top three in the first 75 lap feature. In non-wing supermodified feature Callahan was the class of the field winning by two seconds over Maxon.

Carl Becker brought his Dowker Titanium Roadster home for third in the wing show and Bob Gangwer completed the top three non-wing racers.

“My palms are sweating, I’m breathing hard, I’m all excited, so yeah everything is just great like it should be,” exclaimed Dave Brigandi after winning the wing supermodified feature.

Steve Callahan was a bit more calm, at least after the win in the non-wing race. “I was a little upset after the first race so I had extra motivation. Once I got into clean air tonight, the car was perfect,” said Callahan. Then he added, “Congrats to Dave on that win because all of us behind him threw everything in the book at him and he never missed a beat.”

Myles Maxon set another new track record for the season. He clicked off a 13.837 to claim his 12th NTR and 28th fast qualifier award of the season. Heat wins went to Brigandi and Rob Warren.

The SUPRS Gold Crest Division racers will now head north to the Indianapolis Raceway Park for the conclusion of the 2015 Indyana Supermodified Challenge tomorrow night. Practice both begins at 8:00pm. Time Trials follow at 8:30pm with racing set to start at 9:00pm.
