Racing Roundup

Greg Hodnett pulled off a clean sweep Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway where he won both the 410 and 360 Sprint car features.

In the Van Mey Tribute 410 Sprint car main, Hodnett controlled the event to take the win over Freddie Rahmer, Brian Montieth, Lucas Wolfe and TJ Stutts.

The URC 360 main was the Kramer Williamson Memorial and Hodnett once again dominated to take the win, a night worth over $7,000 for the team over Mark Smith, Lucas Wolfe, Jason Shultz and Trey Starks.

Jeff Halligan won Friday’s 358 Sprint car feature at Trail-Way Speedway over Mike Bittinger, Isaac Sneeringer, Dwight Leppo and Colt White.

All local racing was rained out from the remnants of Hurricane Harvey as Port Royal, Lincoln Selinsgrove, Susquehanna and Hagers-town lost shows.

With the Hagerstown rainout, the points are final and it was Mercersburg rookie driver Kyle Lee winning the Late Model track title, while Kyle Lear is the Late Model Sportsman track champion. Sean Dawson is the Pure Stock champion.

Brock Zearfoss won Sunday night’s Billy Kimmel Memorial for 410 Sprints at Williams Grove Speedway over Brandon Rahmer, Rodney Westhafer, TJ Stutts and Cory Haas, while Brie Hershey took the win in the 358 Sprints over Nyle Berkes, Chase Dietz, Doug Hammaker and Kevin Nouse.

Danny Dietrich scored a thrilling final lap, final turn win in Monday’s Labor Day Classic for 410 Sprints at Port Royal Speedway. Dietrich got around Brock Zearfoss as the two headed for the checkered flag to take the win ahead of Zearfoss, Dylan Cisney, Lucas Wolfe and Dale Blaney. Mike Wagner was sixth and Michael Wagner 16th.

Jeff Rine won Saturday’s World of Outlaws Late Model feature at Selinsgrove Speedway over Chris Madden, Devin Moran, Frankie Heckenest and Morgan Bagley.

Port Royal has a huge weekend coming up this week as the All-Star Circuit of Champions Tuscarora 50 will highlight the weekend. Saturday night’s show will pay $50,000 to the winner of the 50-lap feature event. The Late Models will go in the Butch Reninnger Memorial on Friday night as well. Of course, the annual Juniata County Fair will also be going on.
