Lancaster, PA - The 56th season of Micro-Sprint racing arrived at its official conclusion on Saturday night, as Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway saluted its champions and special award winners at the club's annual Awards Banquet. As it has for the past several years, the banquet was held at the Host Resort & Conference Center in Lancaster, Pa.
Heading up the list of 2013 Mark Millwright & Rigging point champions recognized by the crowd of more than 300 who attended Saturday's banquet, was 600cc titlist Heath Hehnly of Manheim. Driving Sonny Cooke's Hyper/Spar No. 2, Hehnly utilized consistency to capture his third point crown in the 600cc division, tying him with Mike Rutherford for the most championships since the 600's became a weekly class at the Clyde in 2005.
