Racing Roundup

Thanks to Lance Dewease and Greg Hodnett, the winning streak by the Pennsylvania Posse over the World of Outlaws at Williams Grove Speedway now stands at eight in a row.

Dewease won Friday night’s Summer Nationals preliminary event but it was

Hodnett putting a thrilling come-from-behind show to take the big $20,000 payday in Saturday’s Summer Nationals feature.

Dewease, who also won the Don Martin Memorial at Lernerville Speedway last Tuesday night, started fifth on Friday and dominated the second half of the event for his second straight win over the WoO. Donny Schatz finished second over Jason Meyers, Paul McMahan and Greg Hodnett.

With temperatures higher on Saturday and the area under a heat advisory, Hodnett proved to be as hot as the weather as he faded from his third starting spot back to ninth before a Lap 10 red flag gave him new life. His crew chief made some changes, and Hodnett was able to drive back to the front, bringing the large crowd to its feet when he took the lead with four laps to go. The win was Hodnett’s fourth over the past year against the Outlaws and kept the streak alive.

Hodnett took the win over McMahan, Jason Sides, Sammy Swindell and Chad Layton.

Mike Hess scored his first win of the year in Late Model action Saturday at Port Royal Speedway as he took the win over Scott Haus, Gary Beward, Mitch Hack and Waylon Wagner. Tyler Hershey did not start the feature.

The Super Sportsman had double features at the Port that were won by Lanny Hake and Rick Barr. Hake won a makeup that was rained out a few weeks back over Eric Eckert, Scott Dellinger, Carmen Perigo and Jay Fannasy. Barr scored his win over Frankie Herr, Russ Mitten, Carmen Perigo and Jay Fannasy.

Mike Duncan, Jr. won a career first 358 Sprint car feature Friday night at Trail- Way Speedway over Tim Wagaman, Dale Hammaker, Steve Owings and Brad Mc- Clelland.

Rain hit Selinsgrove Speedway just before the features were going to start on Saturday night, forcing postponement. The Late Model Championship will be made up this Saturday night, while the 358 Sprint car feature makeup date will be announced.

Jeremy Miller won Friday night’s Three State Flyers feature at Potomac Speedway over Keith Jackson, Josh Richards, Jamie Lathroum and Austin Hubbard.

Winchester Speedway hosted the Three State Flyers on Saturday, where Josh Richards scored the win in the Mike Clore Memorial over JT Spence, Jeremy Miller, Jason Covert and DJ Myers.

Gene Knaub won Saturday’s 358 Late Model feature at Susquehanna Speedway Park over Randy Christine Jr., Jake Jones, Carl Billet and Larry Baer.

Lincoln Speedway canceled its Sunday night 410 Sprint program.
