EMMA LIBBY CAPTURES CAREER FIRST SPORTSMAN WIN AT 95
Sixteen year old Emma Libby of Glenburn led the first 13 laps of the 25 lap Darling’s Ford Sportsman feature at Speedway 95 Saturday night, but lost it to points leader Kris Matchett of Skowhegan on a lap 14 restart. As Matchett pulled away from the teen driver, Libby held on to the second spot until Matchett unexpectedly slowed on the 23rd lap. Libby was able to overtake him and cruise to her first win as a rookie in the division. Dean Clements of Brooks, making his first appearance since an early season wreck sidelined his activity, took second with Jay Robichaud of Eddington, also returning after several weeks away following an accident that seriously damaged his car, finished third. Fourth went to pole sitter Karl Stanhope of Hampden with Matchett limping home in fifth with a sick engine. Matchett won the division’s single qualifying race.
