Day wins trophy dash, main event

PORT HARDY - Justin Reusch outpoints rival to extend season points lead in stock car racing at Tri-Port Speedway

PORT HARDY — Glen Day bracketed Sunday’s stock-car racing action with a pair of wins at Tri-Port Speedway, but Justin Reusch was the top point-scorer to extend his season points lead.

Day won the opening trophy dash, then outdueled Reusch to win the main event. Between those races, Reusch claimed victory in the first heat and Daniel Hovey won the second heat.

Reusch, who had the fastest qualifying time, finished with 97 points for the day and has a 391-point season total, with Day second at 316. Three other drivers are separated by just seven points in a battle for third, though all are well back of the leaders.

After racing for three straight weekends, the Tri-Port Motor Sports Club will take a break before returning to the track for its next event Saturday, July 9, at 7 p.m.
