By Staff | Sep 11, 2020

Wiscasset — Ready to take a drive into the winner's circle, drivers hit the track on Saturdays, Sept. 5, 12 and 19 for their sixth, seventh and eighth weeks of racing at Wiscasset Speedway.

On Sept. 5, an action-packed night saw the annual Boss Hogg 150, along with the Strictly Streets and Pro Trucks.

The Boss Hogg 150-lap Pro Stock race made its debut in 1991, and is named after longtime hall-of-fame racer, and former Wiscasset Speedway owner, Dave “Boss Hogg” St. Clair.

That race saw 14 lead changes, as Trevor Sanborn led 46 laps. Sanborn found his way to the front of the pack, to take the lead for the first time in lap 73.

Sanborn, and Ben Ashline, swapped lead laps, until lap 107, when Sanborn, ultimately, claimed the lead for the remainder of the race, and brought home the win.

Josh St. Clair was an early-race leader, as he led the pack at the start of the race, until Dave Farrington briefly took the lead in lap six. St. Clair reclaimed the lead in the seventh lap, and battled Farrington to hold the spot until lap 36, when Farrington claimed the lead.

There were eight cautions during the hour-and-a-half race.

On Sept. 12, for local drivers, Ryan Ripley of Thomaston and Bernie Dinsmore earned second-place finishes.

On Sept. 19, Josh St. Clair of Liberty finished first in the Norm's Used Cars Pro Stock 40-lap event.
