York County driver's long tow from Iowa to Pennsylvania pays off in $5,000 Port Royal win

Anthony Macri

Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri made the long tow back from Saturday’s World of Outlaws race in Knoxville, Iowa, pay off with a $5,000 flag-to-flag victory in 410 sprint action at Port Royal Speedway on Sunday evening. 

Macri’s victory at the Juniata County track was the first of the season for the York County driver, who made a 14-hour drive of more than 900 miles after Saturday's Outlaw event. Macri has been racing in the Midwest during the local racing shutdown.

“On the road you learn to drive hard because those guys take advantage of every inch you give them,” said Macri on the Port Royal website. “Coming back to Pennsylvania I knew I couldn’t give anybody an inch and that’s just what we did tonight.”

Defending tack champion Logan Wagner finished second in the 25-lap event, while Brent Marks, who also raced at Knoxville, made a late-race pass of Lance Dewease for third. Dewease and Mike Wagner completed the top five.

Rounding out the top 10 were Ryan Smith, A.J. Flick Freddie Rahmer, T.J. Stutts and Dylan Cisney. Rahmer was coming off consecutive wins on Friday at Selinsgrove Speedway and Saturday at Lincoln Speedway.
