WOLFE CLINCHES SECOND CAREER PA SPEEDWEEK TITLE BY 6 POINTS OVER HODNETT; DODSON EARNS FIRST CAREER SUPER SPORTSMAN WIN IN RECORD TIME; DADETTO WIRED FIELD FOR 305 SPRINT CAR CHECKERS
SELINSGROVE, Pa. – In race No. 8 in the 24th annual PA Speedweek Series, Brent Marks of Myerstown drove to his first 410 sprint car win of the season in the 30-lap Jan Opperman Memorial Sunday night at Selinsgrove Speedway.
For Marks, the victory at the wheel of the BAPS No. 19M was his second career at Selinsgrove and his first in a sprint car since he won the Ray Tilley Classic at the track in May of 2013.
Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg clinched his second career PA Speedweek title by just six points over Greg Hodnett of Thomasville. Wolfe, who persevered through a challenging night that included a hard flip in practice laps and a blown engine in his heat race, was the night's Fast Tees Fast Qualifier over the 26-car field with a lap time of 16.805.
SELINSGROVE: Confetti blew off Brent Marks' wing as his car was pushed back to his pit stall at Selinsgrove Speedway. It was about time.
Marks has suffered through a dismal season. The car has been fast at times, but mechanical woes, driver mistakes and on-track bad luck has kept the Myerstown ace winless.
Then came Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speed Week, and you could see Marks turning the corner with more speed and consistent finishes. You had a feeling it was only a matter of time until he parked in Victory Lane. It happened Sunday. Marks earned a front-row starting spot and dominated the 30-lap Jan Opperman Memorial to close out Speed Week with a $5,000 payday at the Snyder County facility.
"This is long overdue," Marks said. "It's been over a year since I won a race. The last one was the Ray Tilley Classic here last May.
"It feels great. It makes you appreciate wins more. You start taking it for granted, and you don't want to do that." Marks won't.
