PORT ROYAL - Thomasville's Greg Hodnett scored a suspenseful $4,500 victory in the make-up Labor Day Classic event and Rich Eichelberger of Dillsburg claimed Saturday's super sportsman feature at Port Royal Speedway on the final night of the 2012 racing season.
Hodnett started eighth in the 30-lap 410 race.
Mike Wagner took control once the race got rolling over pole-sitter Pat Cannon and 2012 track champion Chad Layton. Hodnett drove masterfully; ducking under Layton for third late in the race before disposing of Cannon with three laps to go.
He then dusted off Wagner with a lap and a half to go; taking the lead with an inside move before driving to a 1.526 second lead at the checkers.
It was Hodnett's eighth overall win of the season at Port Royal. He's won the prestigious Labor Day Classic twice; the first in 2007.
Wagner settled for second followed by Cannon, Smith and Blane Heimbach.
In the 20-lap super sportsman main, veteran Rich Eichelberger of Dillsburg wired the field from the front row for his fourth career win at the oval.
Scott Geesey was second followed by Rick Barr, Jay Fannasy and Scott Dellinger.
Terry Goshorn won the Demolition Derby to close the night of racing.
