It hasn't been an easy road. Barger as been dabbling in full-blown Sprint Car racing off and on for a few seasons.

He's flirted with Victory Lane, and finally, he got it done Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway Park.
The Montrose, N.Y., driver won a spirited and tight battle with Aaron Ott and Austin Hogue to capture the 25-lap main at the Newberrytown oval. Barger's first triumph in a 410 Sprint Car was worth a nice $3,500 Father's Day payday.

Dewease and the team took a big step Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway Park. The Fayetteville driver was quick from the time he rolled off the trailer and posted the victory in the 25-lap Sprint Car feature.

But Sunday night's Spring Classic wasn't practice. Kreitz was on point and the class of the 26-car field.
