Spencer Bayston made a pass for the lead on lap 13 and never looked back, driving his way to victory lane in the Lou Blaney Memorial on Saturday night at Sharon Speedway in Ohio. The win was Bayston’s fourth against the All Star Circuit of Champions, and paid $8,000.

George Hobaugh, who started on the outside of the front row, led the first 12 laps before Bayston took command. Bayton was challenged down the stretch but never relinquished his grip at the point.

Cory Eliason, who is second in All Star points, was the runner-up with Bill Balog crossing in third.

Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich made his way through the field after starting in 13th. Dietrich, who was second in his heat, finished fourth.

Fellow Pennsylvanian Brent Marks was the hard-charger after working from 21st to finish sixth.

Sunday’s Justin Snyder Salute to the Troops was cancelled due to weather.
