HESSTON, PA Ė Hesston Speedway remembered one of its own Saturday night with the annual Nancy Estep Memorial race. Ms. Estep was an employee of the speedway when she lost her life following a brief illness. The repeat winners on this night included Risk Singleton in the limited late models, Andy Haus in the PA 305 sprints, Khi Swanger in the street stocks and Joe Dearmitt in the hobby stocks.

When the green fell to start the sprint feature the #7 of Jim Kennedy didnít come up to speed but the field managed to avoid the slowing car before the caution waved one lap later. Tyler Bear took the lead and held it through five laps before Andy Haus took the lead and left the field to follow in his tracks. The battle for second heated up between Bear and Roger Irvine as they jockeyed for position with Bear able to hold on for second. At the checkered flag it was Haus picking up the win over Bear, Irvine, Mike Heckman and Joey Hershey. Heat wins went to Jim Kennedy, Tyler Bear and Joe Zap.
