1979 Spring Sizzler Recap

8th Annual Spring Sizzler Recap

Maynard Troyer literally powered his way to a third straight Sizzler triumph. Over the final 17-laps, Ron Bouchard, who had pitted on lap-30 for tires, tested Troyer relentlessly. Several times Bouchard pulled even with Troyer only to have Troyer out-power him down the straightaway.

Taking the lead on lap-18 from Bobby Vee, Troyer handled challenges from Bugs Stevens and Ed Flemke before the Bouchard threat. Ken Bouchard finished fourth and Bob Polverari fifth.

Troyer also set fast time in qualifying with a 19.96 second effort.
