MECHANICSBURG - Pat Cannon earned a record fifth 358 track championship and Daryn Pittman closed out the 2012 points season at Williams Grove Speedway by claiming Friday's 25-lap Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car feature.
Pittman, of Owasso, Okla., earned $4,230 for the victory, including lap money and a bonus for winning from the fifth row.
Pole-sitter Glenndon Forsythe forced Pittman to follow him until lap 13; when Pittman was able to complete a turn two slide and drive off the cushion with control.
Forsythe later slapped the front-stretch wall with 10 laps to go and stopped on the track.
It was Pittman's 14th career victory at Williams Grove and his first of the season.
Greg Hodnett, who had sealed up his second career track title last week, finished second followed by Lance Dewease, Brian Montieth and Ryan Taylor.
In the Tool Shed of America 358 sprint main, Cannon earned his second win of the season; while overcoming a 50-point deficit in the points chase at the beginning of the race to come away with the 2012 track title.
Cannon started the 20-lap 358 sprint main in 10th position and passed pole-sitter Austin Hogue with five laps remaining.
Entering the race, Cannon, of Etters, trailed Eric Tomecek in the points chase.
It was Cannon's 27th career win at the Grove and his fifth-career track title -- more than any other driver has ever recorded in the 358 division at the track.
Tomecek worked his way up to a ninth-place finish, causing him to fall short of his first-ever track crown.
Hogue finished second in the race itself followed by Adrian Shaffer, Mark Smith and Jason Shultz.
