Hagar Earns First Career Win at Whynot Motorsports Park
Inside Line Promotions – MERIDIAN, Miss. (July 12, 2016) – Derek Hagar pocketed a $2,500 check for claiming the USCS Series event at Whynot Motorsports Park last Saturday.
The win was Hagar’s first career at the track and his 11th trip to Victory Lane this season.
Following a rain delay, Hagar opened the night by finishing where he started – fourth – in the dash.
“We had a car that was unbelievably tight,” he said. “We had a rain shower and the race track stayed pretty fast all night long.”
After a couple of adjustments on the setup Hagar won a heat race from the pole position. He then drew the zero for the feature inversion, which put him on the pole for the 30-lap feature.
“We had an unbelievable car,” he said. “It was wicked fast. We never really had a challenge for the lead. We put on a good show for fans. It was a packed house. They had a great fan base for as much rain as they got. It was a great crowd.”
Hagar led the duration of the feature and he lapped up to sixth place despite a trio of cautions staggered throughout the main event.
“On that last caution we looked over to the front straightaway and I could see the second-place car,” he said. “It was a great night for us.”
Hagar is scheduled to return to action with the USCS Series this Saturday at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Ga.
