ST: Lisa DeLeeuw Finishes 15th on Opening Night at Sunset Speedway

On Saturday night at Sunset Speedway, Lisa DeLeeuw would battle hard throughout the full Mighty Mini feature en route to a solid 15th place finish.


She started off the night by posting a strong fifth place finish in her heat to automatically qualify her for the feature. She would then finish 11th in the Quick Qualifiers Dash.


The redraw would set her up to start 10th for the 20-lap feature later that night. She’d battle hard the first half of the feature, though fell back to the 12th spot by halfway. She continued battling hard for the second half, finishing 15th.
