Rod George has been racing sprint cars for 30 years – Rick Rarer Photo
Dog Hollow Speedway in Strongstown, Pennsylvania- a facility primarily associated with late model racing – hosted the 410 sprint car class for the first time in their young history. Although the facility is only in it’s teens as far as age is concerned, it was a veteran who came out on top- taking the lead from Clinton County recent winner, Bob Howard, and never looking back. Rod George, a Kittanning, Pennsylvania resident and Fully Injected member, picked up his 2nd win in just as many nights; capturing the 30 lapper worth $2500 at Dog Hollow Speedway. There were 18 cars in attendance for the first annual event. The facility plans on having the 410’s back next season for a similar program.
