Lehman Picks up first career winNewsPhoto


Former 600cc micro-sprint driver Kody Lehman came from seventh starting spot to claim his first career win in the PASS 305 sprint car feature. Lehman, from Enola, advanced through the field to the runner-up spot by lap six. From there, he chased down Ryan Lynn, who took the lead from polesitter Tim Dietz on lap two.

The caution came out as Lehman appeared to be setting up for a pass on Lynn in turns three and four of lap 19, but the caution came out, forcing Lehman to settle for the restart. No matter. Lehman drove under Lynn on the restart, and pulled away to a 1.23-second win at the finish.

Lynn settled for second, with Mike Wagner II, 15th-starting Bill Ney, and Tyler Lebo completing the top five.

Logan Wagner, who started second, pulled up lame in turn two of the opening lap, ending his night.

Heats for the 28 PASS �305� Sprints on hand were won by Kyle Lloyd, George Riden, and Logan Wagner, with Freddy Rahmer winning the consolation.
