PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Kyle Larson maintained his grip on the Pennsylvania Speedweek presented by Red Robin point lead with a top-five finish Wednesday night at Port Royal Speedway.

Larson, who ran fourth while PA Speedweek title rival Danny Dietrich was sixth, holds a 47-point margin – 908 to 861 – with three nights left in the nine-race mini-series.

Freddie Rahmer continues to sit third in points, but has fallen 90 points behind Dietrich and 137 back of the overall lead, leaving him virtually out of reach of the Speedweek crown.

Ryan Smith (752) has closed on Rahmer but ranks fourth in points, with Brock Zearfoss (654) fifth in the overall standings.

Rico Abreu (636), Brent Marks (632), Anthony Macri (600), Lance Dewease (588) and Lucas Wolfe (514) fill out the top 10 in Speedweek points after six nights of racing.

Night seven of Pennsylvania Speedweek takes the tour to its only stop outside of the Keystone State – Maryland’s Hagerstown Speedway – for the $5,000-to-win Johnny Grum Memorial event.

Action at the half-mile dirt track kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
