NEWBERRYTOWN: Greg Hodnett and the Mike Heffner-owned team have been throwing a lot of different combinations at their car the last couple weeks. Different chassis. Different wing configuration. Different brake combinations in conjunction with everything else. Hodnett stopped short of saying his car was better Saturday at Susquehanna Speedway Park. But it certainly wasn't worse.

You aren't supposed to be able to drive by Don Kreitz Jr. at SSP. Well, that's what Hodnett did to close the Sprint Car season with a victory in the 30-lap "Final Showdown" worth a nice $10,060 payday.

NEWBERRYTOWN: Danny Dietrich called his shot on Twitter earlier in the week. The message was clear. Not only did Dietrich predict a win over the upcoming three-race weekend. He also had some encouraging words about his team: "Stay Hungry." Two out of three isn't bad. Dietrich's thirst for winning didn't stop at one victory. He made it back-to-back scores, capping off his central Pennsylvania march with an impressive win in the 25-lap Fall Classic at Susquehanna Speedway Park. The Gettysburg driver banked $4,000 at Lincoln Saturday night and added another $3,500 check on Sunday.

"Setup and a gas man," Dietrich said. "We worked on some things, setups this week, and went back to our old notes. "We regrouped. We did some research, called Maxim and Pro and some of my friends and came up with our own setups." Good call.

It didn't look like Dietrich had much early. He was pinned behind leader Greg Hodnett and runner-up Freddie Rahmer and wasn't making much progress.
