Williams Grove hosted the World of Outlaws sprint cars for the Morgan Cup over the weekend but only got in the first day of the two-day show. Saturday’s racing program was rained out.

On Friday Outlaw champion Brad Sweet led all 25 laps of the feature to score the $10,000 victory. For Sweet it was his second career win at the Grove, after going more than 50 races there before scoring his first.

Sweet earned the pole position for the feature by winning the dash and then led all the way while his rival battled for the remaining spots in the field. In the end it was Brent Marks scoring his second runner-up finish of the week with the Outlaws, while Donny Schatz was third. Rico Abreu and Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri completed the top five. Rounding out the top10 were David Gravel, Lance Dewease, Justin Peck, Carson Macedo and Hanover’s Logan Schuchart. Freddie Rahmer was the race hard-charger, finishing 12th after starting 21st.
