Thomasville's Greg Hodnett raced to his first win of the season in Saturday's All-Star-sanctioned Bob Weikert Memorial Race at Port Royal.

Hodnett collected $13,400, including fast time and lap money, for his victory in the 29-lap race.

Hodnett blasted into the lead at the start of the race and was credited with leading every lap, but that doesn't take into account all the challenges he survived over the distance. Second-place finisher Dale Blaney was alongside Hodnett on numerous occasions, and third- and fourth-place finishers Brent Marks and Shane Stewart also took runs at the leader. Danny Holtgraver completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Chad Layton, Lucas Wolfe, Mike Wagner, Ryan Smith and Logan Wagner.

Andrew Yoder won the econo late models and Jason Snook was the Xtreme stock winner.
