PORT HARDY — Glen Day was the evening’s big winner, but Justin Reusch maintained his overall points lead in the Tri-Port Motor Sports Club’s most recent stock car racing session at Tri-Port Speedway.

Day outdueled runnerup Kevin Doucette and reigning track champion Daniel Hovey to claim the checkered flag in the main event Saturday, July 23.

He also won the second heat race, with Reusch placing second and Doucette third.

Hovey got off to a fast start for the evening, claiming both the trophy dash and the first heat race.

Reusch, who was runnerup in the first heat, ran his season point total to 466, while Day moved up in second place with 405. Hovey (265 points) and Doucette (255) are locked in a close duel for third.

Racers return to the track this weekend for their first doubleheader event of the season. Action begins Saturday at 7 p.m., and the drivers return Sunday for a 1 p.m. matinee points session.

After taking a week off, the club will hosts its feature event of the season, the 2011 Dust Bowl, on Aug. 20.
