Phelps Opens SummerFAST With Weedsport Win

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. — Jimmy Phelps broke multiple winless streaks and locked himself into the 50th Running of NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week at Weedsport Speedway Monday night. Phelps, driving for Heinke-Baldwin Racing – co-owned by Al Heinke, who also owns Weedsport Speedway – conquered the 100-lap race, earning his first points-paying series win in almost three years and his first series win at Weedsport in 12 years. Phelps came out firing, taking the lead by lap 8 and gapping the field. Sheppard wisely navigated his way through lapped traffic but was still several car lengths behind Phelps after the first restart. Phelps continued unchallenged for the final 30 laps, taking the checkers for the first time in a series competition since winning at Fulton Speedway in 2020, while Mahaney was second and Sheppard third.
