Hagerstown MD, (5/27/23)- Port Royal Pa’s Trent Brenneman added his name to the Hagerstown win list with his first career Late Model Sportsman feature win last Saturday night. Brenneman’s victory, aboard his Rocket no.33, made him the third different winner in the five events run for the class this season.
In a mirror image of the last Late Model Sportsman two weeks prior, Kyle Lear darted into the lead from his pole starting spot and appeared to have the field covered. As Lear set the pace, Fourth starting Trent Brenneman reached second by the 10th lap and was gaining on Lear until a broken shock on Lear’s mount sent him to the pits. Brenneman was now the new leader and would lead the remaining 10 laps taking the win over cousin and current point leader, Devin Hart. “We’ve definitely been wanting to get a win down here at Hagerstown.” A jubilant Brenneman stated post race. “Our car felt pretty good right off the trailer, and definitely good in the heat race to start seventh and win that.” Brenneman explained. “At the start of the feature we didn’t feel like we had a winning car for the first half of the race but we got a yellow and got a good restart and the car was definitely better.” Taylor Farlling, Ryan Zook and Barry Miller would complete the top five. With 34 cars in attendance, heat race wins went to Brenneman, Zook, Hart and Lear with the consolation going to Levi Crowl.
Seaford Delaware’s Trevor Collins became the second consecutive Delaware native to win his first career Crate Late Model feature. Collins vaulted into the race lead on the first circuit but would have to hold off a pesky Dale Hollidge during the 20 lap contest to take the breakthrough win. Brian Booze was third, Jarrett Edwards, in his first ever Hagerstown start, was fourth with Justin Kann rounding out the top five. Heats went to Hollidge and Collins.
In support class action, current point leader Jason Stoner drove to his 3rd win of the season in the 15-lap Semi Late feature with current point leader Nick Fogle and Keith Reed splitting the twin 15-lap Pure Stock mains.
