Wight Bookends Brewerton's Hurricane 100

CENTRAL SQUARE, N.Y. – Larry Wight picked up the victory in the Hurricane 100 358-Modified Series event at Brewerton Speedway as a part of NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week XLVII.

Wight took advantage of Steve Bernier's lap-98 miscue in turn two and drove on to win the 100-lap main event. A full field of 30 cars were led to the green flag by Wight and Michael Parent. Wight got the advantage on the outside and would go on to lead the first 35 laps.
After a yellow flag and restart on lap-36, Erick Rudolph soared to the lead from the outside of the first turn. Rudolph led comfortably until heavy lapped traffic ran two-wide on lap-52, slowing Rudolph's progress and allowing Wight to pull back within striking distance.
On lap-55, Rudolph caught a rut in the middle of the third and fourth turns, which upset his machine and allowed Wight to power by while working the rim on the extreme outside groove.
