“Kenawell Sprints to PASS 305 Victory”
By Doug Watson
Hagerstown, MD (6/18/22)- Greencastle Pa’s Cody Kershner drove to his third feature win of the season in last Saturday nights 20-lap Late Model Sportsman contest at Hagerstown Speedway. The win for Kershner, aboard his Wilt/Fischer owned Rocket no 2+2, would be his 6th overall win of the season as Cody has collected 3 victories with the teams Pure Stock mount as well.
Kershner and last week’s winner Justin Weaver shared the front row for the start of the event but as the duo entered turned one suspension failure on Weaver’s Rocket no.2J sent him into the turn one wall and out of competition. The second start would be much better as Kershner jumped into the lead on the first lap and would lead the distance over a surprisingly strong effort from runner-up Rance Garlock. “Since we brought this car out we haven’t finished any worse than second with it and I think we can make it better.” Kershner stated in victory lane. “The Wilt’s have again given me a great opportunity this year and there is nothing I would like to do more for them than win this championship.” 12th starting Chad Myers came home third with Matt Glanden and Dale Murphy rounding out the top five. Heats went to Weaver and Kershner.
Duncansville Pa’s Steve Kenawell Jr. wired the field for his first career Hagerstown feature win in the 25-lap PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint car main. “The way the track was tonight we were lucky to start up front.” Said Kenawell. “We won last night at Dog Hollow (Pa) speedway and to cap off the weekend with a win here at Hagerstown is an amazing feeling.” Austin Reed, Dylan Shatzer, Josh Spicer and Donnie Hendershot completed the top five. Heats went to John Scarborough, Austin Reed, Doug Dodson and Josh Spicer with Timmy Bittner winning the consolation.
In support class action Jasen Geesaman romped to his 3rd win of the season in the 15-lap Pure Stock main with current point leader Dylan Beavers notching his 3rd win of 2022 in the nightcap 15-lap Hobby Stock feature.
