Winners with help from above
Wes Wofford mentioned what I was thinking after the POWRi 305 Sprint Car Race. He mentioned that he prayed that Greg Hodnett would guide him from above in his post -race winner’s circle interview.

Deskins holds on to win Night 1
It would be Shon Deskins in his #7 non-wing sprint car to hold on to that high line and take the victory.

Night 1 would start with the USRA Stock Cars. 11 Stock Cars would check in and they would run only 1 heat. And that  … read more
