ATWOOD, Tenn. (Aug. 30, 2016) – Derek Hagar powered to his 50th feature victory in the last three-plus seasons following a win last Saturday at Clayhill Motorsports.
The triumph also added to Hagar’s lead in the USCS Mid-South championship standings.
“We started off decent in the dash, but the race track was real narrow early on because they had a lot of rain Friday night,” he said. “They worked on it and got the track wider as the night went on.”
Hagar finished fourth in the dash before he won a heat race.
“I took the lead early and led every lap,” he said. “I was fourth in points and since I was the first heat race winner I rolled the dice for the feature inversion. I drew the four, which put me on the pole.”
Hagar ultimately capitalized on the front row starting position, but it wasn’t easy.
“We had a good challenge from Dale Howard,” he said. “He led the first lap and I got by him right after that. We had a caution about five laps into it. I felt like I was slow on the bottom so I moved my line and he passed me on the bottom. I ran behind him it seemed like forever. About Lap 19 I started moving around and he got a flat tire and I drove by him.”
Hagar led the final portion of the race to secure the triumph.
He is slated to compete this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.
