Bachetti fends off Heffner, Hearn to take Super DIRTcar Series win at Lebanon Valley Speedway
Hearn pits twice and charges to third, maintaining series point lead
WEST LEBANON, N. Y. – With three wins at Lebanon Valley Speedway already under his belt, Andy Bachetti, of Great Barrington, Mass., has been strong all season at his home track, and Thursday’s 100-lap “Mr. DIRT Track U.S.A.” for the Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series was no different. Against a competitive field, Backetti seemed to effortlessly cruise to Victory Lane at “The Valley of Speed” Thursday, Aug. 15, taking home the hefty $17,500 winner’s share.
“The pressure was on,” said Bachetti, who, after placing second in his heat, redrew the pole and started the race on the outside front row. “It was definitely mine to win or lose, starting there. We just had to conserve and be consistent and keep everything underneath us.”
