Weekend Recap: Beautiful weather met the entire region for this first time in 2015. Before we get any further, let me remind you that only 410 cu. inch sprint car races count for points, and the scoring system is based off of car counts.
Cody Darrah was the most impressive driver of the weekend. His runner-up finishes at Lernerville and Mercer in ASCoC-sanctioned events for a whopping 8 points. Next in line was Brian Montieth, who was able to record back-to-back wins at Williams Grove and Lincoln which earned him 7 points.
Heading into the weekend it was Danny Dietrich and Greg Hodnett who were tied for 1st in the standings. Hodnett was only able to record 1 point, while Dietrich accrued 6 points for his win at Susquehanna and 2nd at Lincoln.
