ORRVILLE, OH – May 24, 2013 – Dave Hess Jr. ran the race of his life on Friday night at NAPA Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway.

The 28-year-old driver from Waterford, Pa., grabbed the lead on lap two and never looked back en route to capturing the World of Outlaws Late Model Series Buckeye 50 – his coveted first-ever triumph on the national tour.

Not even a lap-36 caution flag could derail Hess, who pulled away from three former WoO LMS champions – Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., and Rick Eckert of York, Pa. – during the race’s late stages to pocket $10,000.
