FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE By Shawn Brouse
Apollo, Pa- Flyin’ AJ Flick of Apollo picked off a pair of top-three finishes at Port Royal Speedway over the weekend competing against the always tough Pennsylvania Posse sprint cars during the Juniata County Fair.
Flick and the Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews, Fence Maintenance Service, Ferguson Heating & Air Conditioning, Chernega Construction, Flick Family No. 2 scored a third and a second on Saturday and Monday, respectively, while also leading several laps.
On Saturday night, the Apollo Ace won his heat race and then lined up third for the 25-lap main event.
Flick took the lead in the feature event on lap five and would lead all the way through lap 21 before eventual winner Anthony Macri took over after a challenging duel for the win.
Danny Dietrich also surged to second late in the race while AJ finished third followed by Lance Dewease and Kyle Reinhardt.
“Started third. Got to the lead and led some laps. Faded as the track slowed down and finished third. Honestly just mind-blown we can even race and run up front with these guys. I’m just so thankful,” Flick said after the exciting race.
Then on Monday in the annual Port Royal Labor Day Classic, Flick started third on the tricky daytime surface and maintained the entire event to run home a fine second.
Flick and the No. 2 team had planned on competing at Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday but the race fell victim to rain.
The 26-year old pilot has three wins on the season at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, one at Sharon Speedway and he won the biggest race of his career, worth some $12,000 at the Port Royal Speedway on August 3.
Flick was the Lernerville track titlist in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
The Apollo pilots career sprint car win total now stands at 22 as he looks for more during the rest of his 2019 sprint car tour.
Flick and the team will compete for $52,000 to win during the upcoming weekend in the Tuscarora 50 races at Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday night with the All Stars in the house.
The AJ Flick No. 2 sprint car team wants to thank all of its sponsors for their support.
