Port Royal, PA – Logan Wagner has won a number of big races at Port Royal Speedway, and after Saturday night, he added the Greg Hodnett Classic to his resume. The win was worth $10,000 and also “The Pilot’s” first PA Sprint Speedweek win of his career.

Wagner and Brent Marks would start on the front row of the 30 lap A-main event and Wagner would jump out to the early lead.

In clean air, the 69K was hard to beat. A long green flag run to open the race saw some close racing between the top 4 that consisted of Wagner, Marks, Macri, and Dietrich.

Dietrich would get by Macri just as the caution would fly with 9 laps remaining, while Marks and Wagner continued to lead.

On the restart, Macri was able to get back by Dietrich for the final podium position as Dietrich would make contact with the outside wall in turn 2.

Dietrich would.begin to fall through the field and would hold on to an 8th place finish while Logan Wagner would make his way to victory lane.

“That was a hard race,” said Wagner, “I felt like I was being tracked down by the 19. We were able to pick off the lap cars. Apparently, Davey and Donnie gave me the best car there was.”

Brent Marks held on to 2nd and Anthony Macri would round out the podium. Macri will carry a 63 point lead into the final race at Selinsgrove Speedway.

In Selinsgrove Ford super late model competition, Justin Weaver was able to lead from lap 1 to lap 25 for the $4,000 win.

The win was Weaver’s first career win in his super late model career at Port Royal Speedway.

Andrew Yoder and Colton Flinner would round out the top 3.

Port Royal Speedway will be back in action on Saturday July 13th for Kid’s Night which will include power wheel and bike races and will feature the Weikert Livestock 410 sprint cars, the super sportsman and the Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 sprint cars.
