Lehman Tops 51 car RaceSaver fieldNewsPhoto


Enola’s Kody Lehman bested the most dominant driver of the year in the 20-lap Race Saver regional event for 305 sprints. Lehman started fourth and chased down polesitter and race-long leader Eric Parker to take the lead on the 14th lap. After that, he led the rest of the way, holding off eighth-starting Logan Wagner to become only the third driver in 21 races over the years to become a repeat winner in 305 sprint competition in the Pigeon Hills.

Four different regional sanctioning bodies were represented in the event. Tri-State Race Saver (TSRS) driver Rick Stief crossed third behind the PASS leaders, with PASS drivers Lance Newlin and Parker completing the top five.

Heats for the 51 RaceSaver (305) Sprints on hand were won by Logan Wagner, Rory Janney, John Braim, Rick Stief, and Lehman, with Mark Watkins and Gary Palmer winning twin consolations.
