HESSTON, Pa. (June 10) — Recovering from an early caution that sent him to the rear, Nick Dickson of Lewistown, Pa., rallied Sunday at Hesston Speedway for a $5,100 victory on the Three State Flyers circuit.
Dickson, who originally started 15th in the 25-car field, took the checkers ahead of Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills, Pa., in the Superthunder Road feature event at the half-mile oval. | Slideshow
Front-row starter Jeff Rine of Danville, Pa., was third followed by 14th-starting Jeremy Miller of Gettysburg, Pa., and 22nd-starting Mike Lupfer of Shermansdale, Pa. Polesitter Alex Ferree of Saxonburg, Pa., finished 22nd.
