PLYMOUTH, Ind. — The Sprints on Dirt always impress when they come to Plymouth Speedway and the drivers put on a show for the fans Saturday night for the annual Earl Gaerte Classic.
Randy Hannagan fought his way to the front by the halfway point, but it wasn’t easy for him to get past Dennis Yoakam who started at the feature out front. He had to pass front runners Shawn Dancer and Gregg Dalman at the beginning of the race. Dalman had issues with his sprint car. which moved Hannagan up and then set his sights on Yoakam. Once he got out in clean air he stayed there.
Danny Lasoski came to Plymouth Speedway just for this race and he made things interesting. He ran in the fifth spot for a good portion of the race, but a late caution helped him get closer to the front runners and close the gap on the restarts. He ran out of laps to get around Hannagan and finished second.
It was Hannagan with the win, Lasoski with second place and Yoakam with the third spot on the podium.
“That was a great race,” said Hannagan. “Happy we could make it here to race. We’ll be back.”
Eric Brown (thunder stocks), Michael Clark (super street) and Jamie Lomax (UMP modifieds) were also winners Saturday at Plymouth Speedway.
