May 13, 2015 – A dominant Greg Hodnett led an all Pennsylvania Posse sweep of the podium during the Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday night, as he claimed his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.
Hodnett was the driver to beat all night. Early on he scored his first quick time of the year. After being on the fortunate end of the Dash inversion draw, Hodnett scored the Dash win and started the night on the feature pole.
Through an early rash of cautions and an open red, Hodnett held off Stevie Smith and built on his position up front. By lap 14, Hodnett began working his way through lapped traffic. As the laps wound down, Stevie Smith, in second began catching Hodnett, but ended up with the more pressing issue of Ryan Smith behind him. Read more

“It was rolling around pretty good,” Hodnett said. “But I was bouncing off the fence, doing stupid stuff,. Luckily, it calmed down and I was able to get it back underneath me. Read more
