Hanover, PA (March 25, 2022) – Dylan Norris started Friday night with a heat race win, earning him a spot in the feature redraw. Norris started on the pole of heat race #2 and led all 10 laps. After drawing pill 11 out of 12 last week, Norris’ pill draw luck improved as he pulled the 1 to line up on the pole for the start of the 25-lap feature.
Norris took the lead at the drop of the green flag and led the field into turn 1. Lap 1 saw the yellow flag wave, setting the field up for a single file restart. Norris had a solid restart, getting a good jump on Chase Dietz. Norris’ lead was up to 1.5 seconds by lap 4. Lapped traffic loomed ahead of Norris at lap 7 which allowed Dietz to close in. Devon Borden was also closing in on the leaders when the caution flag came out on lap 10. Norris led the field to the cone on the front stretch for another single file restart. Dylan looked good again on the restart and had pulled away from the rest of the field by over two seconds in just two laps when the yellow came out again on lap 13. Norris’ restart capabilities were put to the test yet again on lap 14. The final caution of the race came on the lap 14 restart, where Dylan once again got a good jump.
Dylan was pulling away from the field with 10 laps to go. Devon Borden was running in second as the laps wound down and was ever so slightly closing in on Norris as lapped traffic was in sight with two laps to go. When the white flag waved Norris held the lead and Borden limped down the front stretch as his car ran out of fuel.
Norris led every lap of the 25-lap feature to score his first career 410 win by 2.616 seconds over Kyle Reinhardt, earning him $5,500. In addition to his 410 win, Norris has a 358 sprint car win at the Grove as well.
Dylan Norris and the Gobrecht Motorsports team will be back in action at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, March 26 with racing scheduled to start at 4PM. The team will then head to Selinsgrove Speedway on Sunday, March 27 for their first sprint car race of the season at 2PM.
