(IMPERIAL, PA) – Dallas Hewitt is celebrating after winning Saturday night’s BOSS Sprints feature Saturday at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway.
Hewitt started fourth after the redraw for the top six starting spots, which awarded Carmen Perigo and series points leader Matt Westfall the front row starting spots. Kory Crabtree started third.
Perigo grabbed the lead at the start with Hewitt getting by Westfall for second place. Perigo stayed out front for the first nine laps before encountering lap traffic, which allowed Hewitt to get by him for the lead on lap 10.
The caution flag flew on the next lap for Rick Holley, who was running fourth at the time. On the restart Hewitt jumped back out front and rode the high groove to a 7.004-second victory. Perigo finished second followed by Westfall in third. Cody Gardner and Kory Crabtree rounded out the Top 5.
In the RUSH Sprints feature, John Mollick and Zach Morrow started on the front row with Bryan Woodhall and David Hawkins in the second row. Mollick jumped out front when the green flag waved and was cruising when the caution flag flew on lap 10 for Bradley Blackshear, who was running fourth when he slowed on the front stretch.
Mollick jumped back out front on the restart but was not able to shake Morrow this time. The race stayed green with Mollick grabbing his first win in a Sprint at the track. Morrow finished second, 1.607-seconds behind. Woodhall finished third with Jeremy Weaver and Brandon Hawkins round out the Top 5.
In the Diehl Automotive RUSH Late Models, Colton Flinner grabbed the checkered flag after a battle with Michael Duritsky Jr in a race that was marred by 5-caution flags, one red flag and two false starts.
In the Pro Stocks feature Dave McManus picked up his first victory of the season by 6.463-seconds over Nick Kocuba. McManus started on the front row and survived a race restart, after pole-sitter Justin Lamb spun in turn 2 on the opening lap, and a lap 1 caution for points leader Danny Rich after his spin in turn 4. Corey McPherson finished third with Ryan Moyer in fourth and Rich in fifth.
In the Keystone Coach Works Hobby Stock feature, Stephen Shelpman won his third feature of the year beating Casey Grumling to the checkered flag. Marcus Simmons finished third with pole-sitter Frank Magill coming home in fourth. Matt Bernard rounded out the Top 5.
