|MATT FELTEN DOUBLES UP IN MILLER LITE AUTOCROSS SERIES |
WILEY FORD, WV Matt Felten, in his second year driving the 220.Com Reynard-Ford, has been a regular in the Top Five at Miller Lite Cumberland Airport Autocross Series events since mid season last year...but more bridesmaid than bride when it comes to claming Fast Time of the Day. That all changed on Cumberland Historics weekend.
On Saturday, the Felten unseated Greg Honeycutt (BM Renard FS) from the top spot by .322 seconds over a field thinned by the Historics time trial held earlier in the day. Pumpkin Carve Autocross FTD Derek Schwarz (ASP Porsche 993) was third, followed by two drivers making their first appearance in the Top 5, Pittsburghs Rob Harris (SS Corvette ZO6) and Tink Phillips (BP Factory Five Daytona).
On Sunday, the field was back to full force, but the younger Felten was up to the task, edging veteran Stan Vann (CM Caldwell-Ford) by a scant .009 seconds. Honeycutt was third, followed by Bob Williams wild 1972 911 RSR and father John Felten also in the family Reynard.
