York’s Cory Haas won Sunday’s rain-shortened Armin Hostetter/Bob Weikert Memorial 410 sprint race at Trailway Speedway.

Haas collected $3,500 for his second win of the weekend, in a race that was halted after 23 of 29 scheduled laps.

Haas started from the pole position, but yielded to fellow front-row starter, Chase Dietz, his nephew who is also from York, at the start of the race. It took until the ninth lap for Haas to gain the lead in heavy lapped traffic.

Danny Dietrich also worked by Dietz and was challenging for the lead when the first caution flag of the race was unfurled after 23 laps had been completed. As the cars circled under caution, rain began to fall. After a long wait and continued track prep, a second shower ended the evening with Haas declared the winner.

Dietrich was second, followed by Dietz, Lewisberry’s Kyle Moody and Ryan Smith in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Brian Montieth, Brodbecks' Todd Gracey, Hanover’s Dylan Norris, Billy Dietrich and Brett Michalski.

The Legends feature will be run at a later date.
