Waynesfield, Oh – (May 23, 2015) – Randy Hannagan made a late race pass and held on to take the 25 lap “Memorial Classic” at Waynesfield Raceway Park contested by the K&L Ready Mix NRA Sprint Invaders and the Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt Presented by ARP on Saturday night.

Dustin Daggett started on the pole with Hannagan beside and at the drop of the green Daggett got the jump and took command with Hannagan falling back some but keeping Daggett in his sights.

Daggett maintained his advantage for several laps and then encountered lapped traffic with Hannagan closing some but Daggett held fast. Now the 33m of Caleb Griffith was making up ground and by lap 15 racing had intensified with Daggett leading Hannagan, Griffith and Max Stambaugh.

As lap 18 approached, Hannagan had caught Daggett and duo were side by side. Hannangan made the pass stick the next time around with Daggett still on Hannagan’s bumper. Now Griffith had really joined the fray and was a close third as laps were winding down quickly.

As the white flag flew Daggett made a last ditch effort and pulled even with Hannagan but lost some momentum with Griffith and Stambaugh slipping past. At the stripe it was Hannagan, Griffith, Stambaugh, Daggett and Kyle Sauder.

Heats for the 28 cars on hand were won by Hannagan, Daggett and Rod Henning. The B main went to Gregg Dalman.
The three day weekend for the stars of SOD and NRA concludes at Eldora Speedway tomorrow night.
