Hough wins Modified Feature at Lebanon Valley Speedway
WEST LEBANON, N.Y. — Steve Hough had been a stranger to Victory Lane in Lebanon Valley Speedway's Modified Division. Scratch that off the to-do list.
Hough started from the pole position, taking the green flag and then taking the checkered flag to win the Modified Feature on Saturday night.
"The car was perfect," Hough said in a release. "Good to be back in Victory Lane. It's been a couple of years."
Kenny Tremont Jr., made his move through the field and was in third place on Lap 13.
Olden Dwyer, who started in the first row along with Hough, ran out of fuel on the last lap, and Tremont passed him for second. Also passing Dywer were Kolby Schroder for third, followed by Brett Hearn and Keith Flach.
Tremont may have been second in the Modified feature, but won the Small Block Modified feature. He passed Chad Jeseo for second on the ninth lap. Tremont, the defending champion in this class, passed Joey Scarborough on lap 12, and pulled away for the win. Demetrios Drellos finished second, with Jeseo taking third.
In the Sportsman feature, former Pro Stock champion Kevin Arnold raced from the pole, and went wire-to-wire for the win. Frank Hoard Jr. chased Arnold all race long, and finished second.
Rick Duzlak won the Pro Stock feature, but had to come from behind to do so. Duzlak was in third when Paul LaRochelle spun out in turn 4 on the second lap, bringing out a yellow caution.
On the restart, Duzlak roared past Steven LaRochelle for the lead, and held off the pack the rest of the way. Rob Yetman was second.
