WAYNESFIELD, Ohio (8/3/17) – Jack, a 2002 inductee into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, is still the only driver in history to win all four divisions of the 4-Crown Nationals. He set history in 1998. Jack’s career spans decades running with the USAC Silver Crown Series, the World of Outlaws, and the All Star Circuit of Champions. Saturdays event will mark the 9th running of the Jack Hewitt Classic at Waynesfield Raceway Park.
The event will feature two divisions of sprint cars and one division of Modifieds. The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series will headline the program running for $3000 to win. Thomas Meseraull comes into the weekend on a two-year winning streak at the Jack Hewitt Classic. In 2015, Meseraull held off Dallas Hewitt and USAC driver Kody Swanson for the win. Swanson was in attendance last Saturday making final adjustments to his 21K for the big dance. In 2016, Meseraull held off Dustin Stroup and Waynesfield regular Kyle Simon for the win. Stroup sits 25th in BOSS point standings while Simon sits six points out of first in the weekly Waynesfield point standings.
