11-Year-Old Wins At Mahoning

LEHIGHTON, Pa. — At just 11 years and three months old, Paulie Hartwig III became the youngest driver to win in a Modified stock car at Mahoning Valley Speedway. The rising star won the 25-lap Sportsman Modified feature ahead of a veterans Nick Baer and Earl Paules. “This car was just so fast tonight and I love this place. My dad (Paul Hartwig Jr.) works his butt off every day in the shop with Bobby Geiger and they do the best they can to give me such a great car and I can’t thank them and everyone enough,” said Hartwig, who swept the night by also winning in his heat. Hartwig wasn’t the only driver on this night celebrating a first.
