Go here for the sprint-car point standings.

The 23rd annual Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek has now been completed.

The series started with a threat of rain at each of the first three races, before the fourth race, at Grandview, was rained out. That was the first rainout during Speedweek since Hagerstown in 2009.

The next four events went into the record books under hot summer conditions, but the final show, at Selinsgrove on Sunday, marked the second rainout of the 2013 Speedweek.

With the final event rained out, Thomasville's Greg Hodnett claimed his fourth Speedweek title by 15 points over 13-time Speedweek champion Fred Rahmer. Hodnett led the points after the first race, which he won, at Williams Grove, and not again until after the Port Royal race on Saturday.

Rahmer led the standings after the second race, and Sam Hafertepe Jr. led from the third race until after Port Royal. He ended up fourth in the standings, just 27 points out of the lead.

Stevie Smith was third in the final rundown, 24 points out of the lead.

With seven of the nine races completed, there was a different winner at each race. Hodnett, Alan Krimes, Hafertepe, Dave Blaney, Smith, Danny Dietrich and Blane Heimbach each won once. For Hafertepe, Blaney, Dietrich and Heimbach, the wins were their first during Speedweek events.

The average car count for the week was nearly 34. Port Royal had the highest car count with 40, just one more than Lincoln's 39 at the Kevin Gobrecht Memorial Race. Big Diamond's 24 was the low count of the week.

In all, 72 different drivers competed during the week. Those 72 drivers represented 10 states in the USA and two in Australia. There were 14 drivers who competed in all seven events.

Rahmer did finish in the top 10 in all seven events, to extend his string of top-10 finishes to 38. That includes every race he's run in the Northeast this season. Rahmer was the only driver to finish in the top 10 in all seven events.
