John Braim picks up his first win at PortNewsPhoto


John Braim scored his first career win at Port Royal in the 305 sprint division. Braim wired the field for the 20-lap 305 sprint feature win and the third of his overall career.

A restart on the eighth lap placed prior winner Tyler Bear on Braim’s tail for the return to action but a battle never developed with Braim instead pulling away during the late stages.

Bear was second with seventh starter Kody Lehman finishing in third followed by Jeff Miller Jr., and 16th starter Mike Wagner II.

Sixth through 10th went to Erin Statler, Jake Waters, Scott Ellerman, Eric Parker and Reed Thompson.

Heats for the 32 cars in attendance were taken by Lehman, Miller Jr., Brandon Hetrick and Bear.

The consolation went to Wayne Dadetto.
