Hardin Loves The Short Tracks
SOUTH BOSTON – Ricky Hardin proves why he is a threat on the short tracks with a win at South Boston Speedway Sunday night. Hardin led 47 laps in route to his win in the SoBo 100 and scored his second win in the Premier Racing League Sportsman Truck Series. Hardin won at Martinsville earlier this year.
Savage Pole winner John Martin had his best showing of the season with a 5th place finish. Martin lead the first 41 laps until losing the lead on a pit stop. Josh King stayed out to lead the next 12 before Hardin took over for good.
Scott Eckrich came home in the second position after starting 27th in the 30 truck field. Series newcomer Tim Johnston brought his Tundra home in 3rd place in his debut for the league. Joe Hassert was able to come home in a solid 4th position to lock him into the Sportsman Truck Series Chase.
Dan Murray is currently the first guy outside of the playoff behind Woodrow Mahan. Murray came home in the 20th position, one spot behind Mahan. Murray will enter Chicagoland 14 points behind Mahan in the last race before the Chase.
The Premier Racing League Sportsman Truck Series will be off next week for the Labor Day holiday before going to Chicagoland Speedway for the Illinois 125 on September 11th. Chicagoland will serve as the last race of the regular season before the first Round of 12 event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
