Wolfe Pounces on Last Lap at Susky
Brad Vores, NEWBERRYTOWN, Pa. (July 16, 2017) – Lucas Wolfe used a last lap, turn two pass to capture the win in Sunday night’s 30-lap BAPS Auto Paints and Supplies 410 Sprint Series feature at Susquehanna Speedway.
With 18 410 Sprints taking the green flag, Greg Hodnett outgunned fellow front row starter Tyler Walker to take control of the feature event.
Hodnett caught the rear of the field with nine laps in as sixth-starting Danny Dietrich moved into third behind Hodnett and third-starting Lucas Wolfe.
Dietrich got around Wolfe on lap 23 and was pounding the top of the speedway when the leaders encountered a pack of four slower cars. Hodnett was able to work through them but Dietrich jumped the wheel of Jim Shuster entering the third turn and drove into the wall, ending his night.
Hodnett held control on the double file restart but went on defense over the final laps as Wolfe continued to pound the top of the track looking for every inch of momentum.
As the white flag waved, he got a great bite off turn two, sliding by Hodnett and driving to the checkered flag. It was his eighth overall win this season in the Michael Barshinger owned No. 24 and he became the fourth different winner in as many BAPS events this season.
Following the top two were Brock Zearfoss, Brian Montieth and Walker with Adrian Shaffer earning the Hard Charger Award coming from 16th to sixth over Kyle Reinhardt, Mark Smith, Kyle Moody and Glenndon Forsythe.
Heats were won by Dietrich and Hodnett.
