Newberrytown, PA (August 23, 2015) – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville took the checkers in the 410 Sprint Car 25 lapper in the Sunday Night Sprint Car Special at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. Grantville’s Doug Hammaker collected the 358 Sprint Car 20-lap feature race.

By virtue of a number one pill inversion, the two heat race winners Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett brought the field to the green. Hodnettt grabbed the early lead over Hodnett with California’s Rico Abreu close behind in third. Two cautions midway through the race slowed the field, but the running order remained the same on the restarts with Hodnett setting the pace. With one lap to go, Hodnett encountered lapped traffic, giving Dietrich a shot at the lead. On the final circuit, Hodnett went low with Dietrich taking the high line. Dietrich made contact with the outside guardrail, bringing out the caution flag and setting up a one-lap race to the finish between Hodnett, Abreu and Kyle Moody. On the restart, Hodnett continued to lead and took the checkers over Abreau. Moddy settled for a third place podium finish at the end. Austin Hogue came across the finish line in fourth, followed by Brent Marks in fifth.

NEWBERRYTOWN: Greg Hodnett has been looking for a certain feel in his Sprint Car over the last couple weeks. A crash on the backstretch during the World of Outlaws visit to Williams Grove Speedway a month ago left Hodnett's favorite piece a mangled mess. Since then, his comfort level hasn't been the same.

But it's starting to improve. He was fast in a Friday Twin 20 victory at the Grove and was half a second faster than the field at the end of a second-place run Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway. The car continued to handle well at Susquehanna Speedway Park Sunday night. Hodnett looked comfortable in fighting off Danny Dietrich early and Rico Abreu on a late restart to capture the 25-lap main event.

NEWBERRYTOWN: Robert Ballou knew he didn't have the means to compete for wins when USAC visited central Pennsylvania last season. Imagine how difficult that was to swallow. Ballou is a fierce competitor, and yet, he trekked to the track every night knowing that he had little or no chance of parking his car on the frontstretch in Victory Lane.

Still, the California native never whined or complained. He went about his business and sacrificed to fix the problem. And now, he is the most dominant wingless Sprint Car on the USAC circuit. Ballou proved that Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway Park. He methodically made his way to the front and sailed by the leaders to capture the 30-lap USAC Eastern Storm finale and a hefty $6,000 payday. Not only did Ballou clinch the Eastern Storm title, he did so by sweeping all three events in the series — two others were rained out — and a nice $18,000 bounty.
