The 2012 season kicked of at the I-76 Speedway Icebreaker Special with an awesome field of 17 cars.
The weather was great and Butch prepared a nice track.
Brent Rees in his #87 Yamaha R1 powered Lighting Sprint was the class of the field as he scored a convincing victory.
Rees had gained a large lead and was cruising to victory but a couple cautions tightened up the filed.
Troy Simpson #56 and the 2011 Champion Troy Ullery #1 put on a great show for 2nd place as Simpson edged Ullery.
Steve Becker scored a very solid 4th place and was righ behind Ullery and Simpson.
Despite getting caught up in a couple incidents Jeff Gieg rallied back to round out the top 5.
The complete results are as follows.
