SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Logan Wagner led all the way to capture a $20,000 payday in Saturday night’s 37th annual Jim Nace Memorial National Open for 410 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Wagner was never headed and took the checkered flag .755 seconds in front of Freddie Rahmer, who chased him throughout the 40-lap feature at the half-mile dirt oval.

Midwestern invader Brian Brown completed the podium, followed by Kerry Madsen and T.J. Stutts.

Each of the top five finishers held those positions for all 40 laps on Saturday night.

Anthony Macri crossed sixth, ahead of Brian Montieth, Danny Dietrich, Lance Dewease and Steve Buckwalter.

The winner’s share was the largest prize for an unsanctioned sprint car race in Pennsylvania this season, with a guaranteed $600 to start and a total race purse of $50,000.

Garrett Bard won the companion PASS/IMCA 305 sprint car feature, beating Zach Newlin, Keith Prutzman, Devin Adams and Ian Cumens.
