Blane Heimbach raced to a $4,000 victory Sunday afternoon at Selinsgrove Speedway.
Heimbach's win was his first career 410 sprint-car win at his home-town track, where he has won 36 times in limited-sprint-car competition.
Justin Barger took the early race lead from the pole position and held the advantage over Thomasville's Greg Hodnett until the 13th of 25 laps. At that point, Barger suffered a flat tire, turning the lead over to Hodnett. But, Heimbach was on the move from his seventh starting spot and took the lead from Hodnett on the 15th lap. Two laps later, Hodnett dropped from competition with mechanical failure.
From that point on, Heimbach was home free, with Chad Layton finishing second. Mike Erdley was third, followed by Lucas Wolfe and Steve Buckwalter. Rounding out the top 10 were Robbie Stillwaggon, Rick Lafferty, Chad Kemenah, Davie Franek and Ryan Wilson.
