Eric Yorke Finishes Seventh at Sunset Speedway

Eric Yorke battled hard throughout the entire 25-lap feature en route to a seventh place finish.

Yorke kicked off the night by finishing fourth in his heat, followed by a sixth place finish in the Dash for Cash.

Starting mid-pack for the feature, he began to make his way forward quickly, getting alongside Jake Watson for fourth at Lap 5, completing the pass four laps later. He’d run there solidly till Brandon Crumbie was able to get alongside him at Lap 11, with the pair battling till the caution flew at Lap 19 for a spin mid-pack.

The restart saw Yorke get really sideways after getting tagged in the back end, but he was able to save it and keep going. Unfortunately, it resulted in him falling back to the seventh spot. He’d attempt to make his climb back to the front, getting alongside Young for sixth at Lap 22, but was unable to complete the pass. As a result, he’d finish the feature in seventh.
