When it was all over, Cris Eash had won the 62nd season opener for 410 sprints at the famous Pennsylvania 1/2-mile track. Eash won the 25-lap feature using a Hoosier RD12/RD15 combination. He also pocketed $3,000 for the victory. The win for the Hoosier brand comes after compiling a perfect 90-0 record in central PA last season. Not only did Team-Hoosier capture the win, they also swept the top nine positions in the night's sprint feature race as reported by Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic's Bobby Wirts.

Finishing runner-up to Eash, who is running for championships at both Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedway in 2003, was Lance Dewease. Todd Shaffer finished third followed by Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett, Keith Kauffman, Len Thompson, Brook Weibley and Dale Blaney in fourth through ninth, respectively. All nine competed using USA-made Hoosier tires.

Williams Grove Speedway continues to run an open tire rule forum while Lincoln Speedway elected to exclusively run Hoosier tires after last season's dominance of the Hoosier brand in an effort to reduce costs to their competitors. Ironically, only 3 of the 24 feature starters opted to run another tire brand.
