Hearn Stays Hot At Lebanon Valley
But Speed was nearly a distraction, as Jay Corbin leap frogged past both on lap 16 to take over the top spot. Caution slowed the field again on lap 18 for the now damaged #25S of Sanchez, who retired for the night after making contact with the turn two wall.
But Corbin had the field covered, taking his No. 8 to victory lane for the first time in 2013. Speed finished 2nd while Victor Hopkins battled to finish third. Jason Casey and Kevin Arnold rounded out the top 5 finishers.
The 20 lap Budget Sportsman battle saw the No. 74 of Chris Lynch power out to an early lead with the No. 7 of Michael Sabia on his heels. Caution flew for the No. 24C of Chris Lysogorski spinning in turn 2 collecting a few other racers. All continued except for the Lysogorski.
Lynch continued to comfortable hold the top spot while the field continued to be marred by multiple cautions. The biggest of which was on lap 6 involving six cars and causing a brief red flag. Four of those cars retired for the night the rest continued with some minor damage.
The caution story continued, but Lynch now had his hands full with last week’s winner Tyler Dippel, as Dippel powered by Lynch on lap nine, and didn’t look back. Caution slowed the field again on lap 17, but Dippel had too much for the rest of the field, and he scored his 2nd win in a row at the mighty high banks.
Lynch had to settle for 2nd while Josh Gaylord, Scott Duso and Tommy Johnson rounded out the top five.
In the Purestocks, the feature winners were Dan Cote in PS No. 1, PS No. 2 was captured by John Felarecki, and Daniel Sanchez scored his 2nd in a row in PS No. 3
