YORK, Pa. — Drivers had the hope of having a three race weekend. Invaders and All-Star drivers look to get some time in the seat in Pennsylvania before their season kicks off.
In the first late model heat, driver Bryan Bernheisel is currently hospitalized after barrel rolling in turns one and two and finally coming to a rest outside the track at Williams Grove. According to a post, he had surgery Sunday morning for a fracture in his neck and will stay in the hospital for a few days.

In the second heat of the super late model's, Rick Eckert saved himself from also a barrel rolling. He pulled the car to the pits.
A laundry list of things happened to Danny Dietrich. They team was able to repair everything and take Brent Shearer's spot in the A-Main and goes dead last in the feature to finish 9th.
Justin Peck had a half a second plus on the entire field. He led it all for his second win in a row but first career at the Grove.
“We were free enough to run up above the curve but we were also tight enough so I can get down and pass racecars when I needed to," said Peck.
With the scrabble, Max Blair started on the pole of the super late model feature.
Side-by-side going to the white flag for second but Blair was all alone and pulled away for his first career victory at Williams Grove.
“This is a sprint car place. We’re in sprint car country. We all know that but sometimes they have real racecars here. So, I’m glad we were finally able to get a win," said Blair.

“We really didn’t have the best car but starting up front gave us enough track position to hang on," said Cisney.
On to the late models, Rick Eckert challenged Jeff Rine for the lead but Rine was just too strong.
