PORT ROYAL: A week ago, Ryan Smith was disappointed with the outcome in the season finale at Williams Grove Speedway.

Smith placed second to Cory Haas. His first victory at the historic speedway was so close he could taste it.

That thirst never left and on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, Smith not only put last week behind him, he did one better. Failing to win that initial race at the Grove means very little if anything at this point.

PORT ROYAL: Mike Heffner remembers his father taking him to Port Royal Speedway for the Tuscarora 50. So when Heffner got into the Sprint Car ownership game, the prestigious race was one of the top lines on his victory bucket list. And now, it's been crossed off. Hired gun Greg Hodnett made sure of it in emphatic fashion Saturday night.

Dominating. Decisive. Imposing. It doesn't matter what word you use to describe Hodnett over the 50-lap onslaught. It all means the same and ends with the Thomasville driver collecting his fourth win in the event. Hodnett also sat in Victory Lane in 1998, 2004 and 2009, tying Doug Wolfgang, Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease for the most Tuscarora 50 victories. This particular march was worth a hefty $13,350. 

"This is definitely a worthy win," Heffner said. "The first half of the race was great, and Greg did a great job.
