After seven consecutive races, Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek was rained out on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway.
The sprinters returned to action Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, with rain again playing a big part in the concluding race of the series. Saturday's action was delayed for more than three hours by a rain storm.
In the end, Lucas Wolfe won the battle and the war.
Wolfe drove to the victory in the 30-lap Greg Hodnett Tribute at the Port, and in the process claimed his fourth Speedweek point title. The race win was worth $7,000, while the point title should earn Wolfe an additional $5,000.
Wolfe took over the top spot on the 17th lap when leader A.J. Flick suffered a flat tire. He went on to score the victory over Robbie Kendall. Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich and James McFadden completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Logan Wagner, Kyle Reinhardt, Rico Abreu, York’s Cory Haas and Freddie Rahmer.
Wolfe won the Speedweek title over Rahmer, Dietrich, Dewease and Dillsburg’s Anthoiny Macri.
In the late-model feature, Nick Dickson scored the win over Andy Haus, Dover’s Gene Knaub, Bryan Bernheisel and Jeff Rine. Rounding out the top 10 were York’s Rick Eckert, Shaun Jones, Gary Stuhler, Hayes Mattern and Mike Lupfer.
