WEST LEBANON, N. Y. – Thursday, August 8, 2013 – Perhaps the biggest comeback story of the season last year happened atLebanon Valley Speedway during the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series “Mr. DIRT Track U.S.A.” After a two-race hiatus from the series, brought on by sudden illness, Brett Hearn got back behind the wheel and pulled off a thrilling victory.
“At that point last year when I did that race, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know if I was going to have the strength, I didn’t know if I was going to have the stamina,” said Hearn, who ended up wrecking in his heat race and starting 23rd in his backup car. “It just ended up being a really magical night.”
