Hodgeson Gets Maiden Victory at Owosso

The Affordable Tire and Service Center Pro Late Models would make their return to the Owosso Speedway after a three week absence. Defending Track Champion Leo Smith would lead the field down for the start, and would use that to his advantage as he lead in the early going. But Joe Hodgeson Jr. would be on a mission. Of the tracks he’d raced on during the 2012 season, Owosso was the only one he had not been able to claim victory at. But on lap 12 he would take the lead from Smith, and with a fist pumping out of the window as he came down to the checkered flag, Joe Hodgeson Jr. would be your winner. Dave Bigos would come home second, and claim the points lead, while Jason Felver, Tony Basalone and John Forsythe III would round out the top five. Heat race wins went to Ryan Etchison and Russ Cords, while Hodgeson set fast time with a 16.152.
